    Lightbulb Re: Flashplayer, gnome x64

    I did read a lot of ways to install flash player in Firefox on BackTrack 5 R1, but some of them are older and others don't work on all installations.
    In my case I was tired to try unsuccessfully a lot of methods and I look for the 'easy way'..., and finally, I found it.

    Firefox has a plug-in named 'flash aid' if you look for this plug-in in Tools/Add-on, 'flash aid' downloads and installs automatically.
    When you reboot Firefox you can see plug-in 'logo' (a circle with 'f' in the middle) on top-right corner of Firefox address bar (closer to 'home' logo).
    If you click in the 'logo' will open a GUI Wizard interface to install Flash Player only following the steps by default.
    When you finish you only have to reboot Firefox and ¡¡surprise!! Flash Player will work perfectly.

    I hope this advice can help to anybody and safe time and efforts to install Flash Player in Firefox on BackTrack 5.

    Hi all,

    the script from Noxygen is very useful but i found some users cant get successful due to no '/plugin' folder

    for those who are using same system as me (Backtrack5 R1 : 2.6.39.4 : x64) you can create a few '/plugin' folder BEFORE execute the script.

    #mkdir /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    #mkdir /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/

    once done, please proceed to execute the script

    it worked for me and credit to Noxygen
