    Default Flashplayer, gnome x64

    Since this is the first edition of backtrack to support x64, is their a tutorial to install flash player for firefox? i noticed they have changed the name to SQUARE and the install instructions are a bit vague?

    im also having trouble with this, I suspect it has something to do with making a sym link to the flashplayer.so file thats included in the square download

    To me, i just installed first ubuntu-restricted-extras then download flash on adobe and works fine.

    apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

    then download flash here >> http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/com...nux_%28.deb%29

    then: dpkg --force-all --install install_flash_player_10_linux.deb

    hi, when i download from that page, it will tell me no protocols associated with apt, how do you get the deb package ?

    thanks

    Sickness, I have tried utilizing your guide but I am having no luck implementing it.

    The big issue I see is where Adobe has updated their flash to 11. The links you provide no longer function as intended, and file names are naturally different.

    I attempted to install the Flash 11 in the same mannerisms as your guide and have not had any luck.

    Hello to all!

    My first post here!

    I've found ONE OF THE POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS.

    1) apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    2) Find install_flash_player_10_linux.deb with google and download it! (THE STEP MISSING, BECAUSE OF THE NEW VERSION; WITHOUT .DEB; BUT STILL AVAILABLE IN SOME PLACES)
    3) then: dpkg --force-all --install install_flash_player_10_linux.deb

    It worked for me!!!
