Flash 9 on Linux!


are you tired of stupid Flash 7 on your Linux. That you are not able to watch any cool stuff on the web as it is Flash 8 or Flash 9? Are you sick of the audio not being synchrononous with the video?

Well finally someone has thought about us Linux users at Adobe. They have published the first beta of the Flash Player 9 for Linux.

The only problem now is: Why is there no .deb for my Kubuntu?

Well there is no need for it. If you have flashplayer-nonfree installed you can simply do this:

# wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/
# tar xvzf FP9_plugin_beta_101806.tar.gz
# sudo cp flash-player-plugin- /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/
# sudo cp flash-player-plugin- /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/

This will get you and install you your FlashPlayer 9. Then just restart Firefox / Opera and you’ll get your FlashPlayer 9!

Have fun watching all that video content on Youtube, Google Videos, DailyMotion or Myspace.
