    1) apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

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

    It worked for me!!!

    For references on how to install Flash please look at the Wiki.

    Regarding the link problem ... seriously !?
    Flash is an application that gets updated very often due to the multiple holes that people find in it, so links automatically change ...
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
    Do not take a look at the: Forum Rules !

    has anyone figured out how to install flash player 11? i can get 10 to work but on some sites it tells me i need to update flashplayer. when you try to install it using wiki instructions it doesn't work. plus adobe site only gives the file (install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz) and not flashplayer square.

    I'd like the same help that melissabubble is requesting. The following article in the Wiki appears to have helped some people:

    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/...l_Flash_Player

    But unfortunately it did not help me. Some of my paths (under the Gnome 64-bit version of 5R1, updated with Firefox 8.01) vary -- I find myself having to manually add the "plugins" directories where libflashplayer.so is supposed to go, and I have no firefox directory under /usb/lib (Firefox was installed to /opt incidentally).

    I did find the following, which may help some people. The current Adobe Flash Player files seem to be these:

    flashplayer11-2_p1_install_lin_64_102611.tar.gz
    install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz


    I would also like to state that even though, according to some on this forum, backtrack was not designed for flash, the Nessus GUI absolutely requires it -- hence my need to find a solution here.

    Thanks!

    Default AW: Flashplayer, gnome x64

    For the lazy ones: That script worked like a charm for me. (Gnome x64)
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    mkdir ~/flashinstaller && cd ~/flashinstaller
    
    apt-get purge flashplugin-nonfree flashplugin-installer gnash gnash-common mozilla-plugin-gnash swfdec-mozilla
    rm -f /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so
    rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper*flash*so
    rm -f ~/.mozilla/plugins/*flash*so
    
    # download flash square and flash player from:
    wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz
    wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplatformruntimes/flashplayer11/flashplayer11_b1_install_lin_64_071311.tar.gz
    
    tar xfvz flashplayer11_b1_install_lin_64_071311.tar.gz
    chown root:root libflashplayer.so
    chmod 0644 libflashplayer.so
    cp -f libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    rm -rf libflashplayer.so
    ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
    tar xvfz install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz
    mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
    mv -f libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
    cd

    I'm still unsure why the above script works for some and not for others, but I finally found success by installing Google Chrome, followed by the packages referenced on the first page of this thread. This does NOT get Flash Player working in Firefox, but I'm happy enough as I can now run Nessus successfully in Chrome. Here were my steps:

    First I make sure everthing was up-to-date (which should be done fairly regularly anyway and is really not part of this procedure):

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    apt-get dist-upgrade


    Then I installed the following three packages:

    apt-get install chromium-browser
    apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree


    Finally I did a hexedit hack on /usr/bin/chromium-browser/chromium-browser. This is necessary to allow root to run Chrome. I have my reasons for doing this, but all the normal comments about bad security practice clearly apply. The nicest guide I found for this is a Youtube video by Mailcenter111 entitled "how to run chrome-browser as root in backtrack 5 !".

    Thereafter I was up and running! Time to do a Nessus scan...
