    Default Nessus from the BT5-R2 GNOME 64bit iso Flash problem

    I was able to get flash running by doing:

    First close Firefox! It’s safer to perform these instructions with all browsers closed.

    Next, remove any existing Flash installations or files:

    apt-get -y purge flashplugin-nonfree flashplugin-installer gnash gnash-common mozilla-plugin-gnash swfdec-mozilla

    next

    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

    Installation

    Now download Flash.

    Finally, extract and install the Flash player plugin you just downloaded:

    tar xvfz {i did use install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz from adobe.com}
    mkdir -p ~/.mozilla/plugins
    mv -f libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

    Im not sure from what website i got it but flash works, with youtube and other websites

    But If i try to load nessus with firefox on https://localhost:8834/

    it says:

    Flash 10.2 Required
    This content requires the Adobe Flash Player, version 10.2 or newer. Get Flash 10.2

    So I can't see the problem, anyone able to tell me what is going wrong?

    Install firefox flashaid, then run the wizard, its going to open a terminal and try to install flash, but its going to give you and error about not having a directory. create the directory it says then run it again. This time you will see an error about the files needing a to linked. Create the link and the next time you run the wizard it will install.

    Excellent!
    I haven't heard of Flash-Aid before; I've spent almost a whole day dealing with broken links to different versions of the flash player installer and packages that didn't work, and following step-by-step guides that didn't solve my problem until I read your comment.

    I simply headed to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...don/flash-aid/ , installed it, and got Flash Player up and running in less than a minute!
