Ever had problem installing flash plugin on your Linux machine? Ubuntu has all these different packages that can be used, but I always opted for using the simple manual install.
Here's what you do:
1- Download flash player for Linux (.tar):
2- Uncompress the folder and cd into it:
|tar -xzvf install_flash_player*linux.tar.gz|
3- Add flash the proper folder:
|# Firefox 3|
sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox-3*/plugins/
Open (or restart) Firefox and test your flash player (youtube.com is a good idea).
