Ways For Installing Flash Player .

1) Download this: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get…9_linux.tar.gz

Right-click on it, and extract it. Then, open the terminal and cd to the directory with the files that were just extracted (if you’ll need help on this, let me know). Then do “sudo ./flash_installer” (I don’t remember the exact name of it.. but just do “sudo ./<name>”)

When it asks you for the path – I think you need to give it /usr/lib/mozilla or /usr/lib/firefox, can’t remember which. After that it’ll be done, restart firefox and it should work.

Configure Flash Plugins :FireFox

If you visit a page which needs flash to be displayed correctly click on
the the missing plugin icon and Firefox will automatically install it
for you. Restart firefox and type about:plugins in the address bar. If
the plugin has been successfully installed you should see ‘Shockwave Flash’ among plugins.

Open Source Gnash Plugin

Fedora 8 comes with an open source flash plugin. To install it type:

$ sudo yum install gnash gnash-plugin

Gnash for some reason installs its plugin into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins when it needs to be in /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.8/plugins.

So to fix this type:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libgnashplugin.so /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.8/pluginslibgnashplugin.

So Be careful to replace the correct Firefox version in the above command.
For the New Version Like I have :2.0.0.10-5.fc9

SO Mine Plugins will install on /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.10-5.fc9/plugins.

Alternate Way to Install Gnash Flash Plugins

Go to Applications->System Tools->Yum Extender

Click ON-> Package View

Now Search For ->Gnash :in Available Package

Choose The Packages Depending on Ur Version No.
