How to install flash on Linux (the manual and safe way)

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
cd install_flash_player*linux

3- Add flash the proper folder:
# Firefox 3
sudo cp /usr/lib/firefox-3*/plugins/

Open (or restart) Firefox and test your flash player ( is a good idea).
