Manual Flashplayer 9 Installation for Linux

I installed Flashplayer 9 Beta manually because the Debian experimental package didn’t seem to work. Here’s the procedure:

  1. wget http://www.adobe.com/go/fp9_update_b1_installer_linuxplugin
  2. tar zxvf FP9_plugin_beta_101806.tar.gz
  3. cd flash-player-plugin-9.0.21.55
  4. sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
  5. cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
  6. sudo ln -s ../../mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so .

Restart Firefox and type about:plugins into the location bar. You should see something like this:

BTW, the Beta works great for me.
