Hi. o/
Well, i'm thinking that some people could have dificulty to install Adobe Flash Player on Mageia x86_64 distro, so i've prepared a shell script to help people with this. The script will download automatically the plugin from Adobe site, as well install it for all users on the system.

Just copy the code on you text editor, save it, and do a chmod to make the script executable.

Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#######################################################
# Install script for Adobe Flash Player 10
# ver. 0.1 for distro Mageia 1.0 x86_64                         
# Written by  Malabi (Alex Santos Encarnação)
# alexsantose@aol.com  / alexsantose@gmail.com
#######################################################
# Downloading plugin
wget -c http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz
# Extracting plugin on directory
tar -zxvf flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz -C /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
echo "Install finished, please restart your Firefox."


Note: The script need to be executed as root, because it will need permission to copy the plugin to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/.

isadora, thanks for the tip. =D

Bye. =D

Thanks Malabi for this script.
But, why not copying the plugin to:
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins?

Well, this is the way it has been described at least 4 or 5 times already in this forum.

Not being unfreindly to you, Malabi, I only want to say that we definitely NEED a place where such mini-HowTos are stored instead of posting them again and again in this way or another.

@wobo: Already mentioned this in the appropriate thread you started some time ago.

Oh sorry wobo. It wasn't my intention... ^^''

A session to HowTos could be a great idea.
If any help is needed, just call me. I'll be glad to help if i can. =)

Why do we need a script ?
Can't they do a real package to install it ?

The flash-player-plugin in nonfree repository is not enough to install?

Read the Errata:
http://www.mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=mageia1:errata#the_skeleton_adobe_flash_player_package_only_exists_in_the_nonfree_32bit_repository
You can also install flash-player-plugin11 Beta from Cauldron, that is the only native x86_64 flashplayer package, and working good here.

You can install it like this:
Code: Select all
urpmi ftp://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/cauldron/x86_64/media/nonfree/release/flash-player-plugin11-11.0.1.98-0.b2.080811.2.mga2.nonfree.x86_64.rpm

the following package is only needed for the KDE systemsettings entry:
Code: Select all
urpmi ftp://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/cauldron/x86_64/media/nonfree/release/flash-player-plugin11-kde-11.0.1.98-0.b2.080811.2.mga2.nonfree.x86_64.rpm

Please don't use this script, when we have flash-player-plugin packaged, even version 11 release candidate.
Please have a look at our excellent MAQeia about flashplayer: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=880
