Install flash player 10 beta 2

Flash player 10 beta 2 is out and it should perform better on Ubuntu.

Start by removing flash 9.

I just removed the file in /home/.mozilla/plugin

(.mozilla is a hidden file, press “ctrl+h” to view it (kubuntu -> “ctrl + .”))

Then copy/paste this command in a terminal.

cd /tmp
wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/flashplayer10_install_linux_070208.tar.gz
tar -zxvf flashplayer10_install_linux_070208.tar.gz
cd install_flash_player_10_linux
./flashplayer-installer

Make sure to close firefox when you run the script.

The flashplayer script will ask you some questions, just press “y” followed by an enter, the second time choose “n”.

That should do it.

    yes…. flash 9 was making my browser crash all the time…

  1. Hi…

    This something has been itching me since long time…
    Macromedia is taken over by adobe, and macromedia.com simply redirects to adobe.com

    Second, I could not find any links on adobe’s website that led to flash beta downloads.

    Moreover, the links “download.macromedia.com”, “download.macromedia.com/pub”, “download.macromedia.com/pub/labs” gave me no directory listing (only a 404 error). BUT, “download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10_install_linux_070208.tar.gz” contains a downloadable file.

    SO HOW THE HELL DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT THE LINK?!!!!

    I just googled for “flash player 10” and came to the site.

    ( http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html )

    I right-clicked the “linux plugin” and copied the file location and pasted it in the command.

  2. Oh.
    I should have known🙂
