How Do I get Flash Player

I’m running opensuse 11.1 and firefox 3.5.2 I installed the latest version of flash but i cant get youtube to see it. Youtube says that i either have java disabled or an old version of flash, both of which are wrong. I am a newbie but i think it has to do with the path. Any help?

Adobe - Adobe Flash Player - choose .tar.gz

Extract archive

then as su in terminal: cp /usr/lib/browser-plugins/

This works for 32bit, not for 64bit. Flashplayer is also available through Yast and Online update.

If you are _64, you may like to check this:
Flash Player 10 on 11.1 - Page 3 - openSUSE Forums

Or if you’re 32-bit, choose the .rpm and let YAST install it for you by choosing Open with Install Software, which should be the default.

Take Care,


I did that and it said: Reply with quote

Never use .tar unless its 100% needed
