Adobe Flash 9 beta for Linux at last

By   |  October 20, 2006

Adobe has finally released a beta version of Flash Player 9 for Linux. Linux users have been stuck on version 7 since Adobe decided to skip its version 8 release on the open source platform, cutting Linux users off from many Flash sites.

The final release of version 9 is expected early next year, and at times there was doubt amongst the community as to whether Flash Player 9 would even be available on Linux.

Tectonic has tested the player, and it worked on Ubuntu Dapper Drake as a Firefox plug-in on Flash 8 sites. Unfortunately there aren’t a lot of Flash 9 sites to test the capabilities of Actionscript 3 yet. To install it, download the “installer for Linux” gzip from Adobe’s site, extract the libflashplayer.so file and copy it into the .mozilla/plugins directory under your home directory (~/.mozilla/plugins). Restart Firefox and head for a Flash site.

    @shin:
    You can copy the file at the command line with the following:

    cp libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
