    Exclamation How can I install flash player on Backtrack 5 gnome 64 bit?

    I'm trying to install flash player but since I'm a super newbie in both linux and backtrack I failed.
    I tried to download it by apturl by the link(apt:adobe-flashplugin?channel=$distro-partner) they porvided but it says "The channel '-partner' is not known"(don't know what it says actually)
    I tried the .rpm by alien, but again failed.
    Then I found this topic:
    Backtrack 5 - How to get flash player working on Gnome / KDE x64
    I did it half way(not sure I did it correct, since I didn't get any response from the rm commands), then I realized that adobe has stopped supporting the square and the link redirects to the flash player 11 beta. I tried to install it with the commands in the topic (tar xvfz and mv -f) but then again I couldn't use it in firefox.

    Can anyone help me?

    I think we need a new how to for installing it.
    Thanks

    save this and run or just copy and paste into terminal:
    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/

    mv -f libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
    cd

    mv -f libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
    cd
    you should put this into the tutorials categories, this http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...e-kde-x64.html doesnt work anymore!

    Hi guys i have tried the above script and still when I open firefox and try to go to youtube. Firefox tells me that I need to install flash player. I went and looked in my synaptic package manager and saw flash has been installed. I have tried the scripts to completely remove flash player and then reinstall it but nothing has worked so far. Can anyone suggest what I need to do to fix this? Thanx

    I ran the code. I can now watch videos in the smallest video box, the default one. However, if i attempt to maximize the video to full screen, the video freezes completely, and the sound continues playing. Eventually, the screen is visibly altered as is some sort of video driver issue. I then have to shut the system down via the power button. I am leaning towards this being a video driver error of some sort. Does anyone else have this issue, or have any relevant info/suggestions for a fix? I am new to BackTrack, and linux in general. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks...

    it's very easy ==> you must download .tar.gz from adobe.com flash installer (install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz) and put in a folder "flashinstaller". later - continue to execute other commands.

    I was struck by this method! it would show users winndows))).... but it works!
