    this guide does not work
    both "wget" files are broke
    why dont someone just tell us how to goto adobe and find these files so we dont have to do this ****
    what do you click on at adobe.com to find the files for backtrack 5 x64 bit?

    @en1gma first of all Backtrack 5 was not made for having Flash player on it an second the Wiki covers the basic installation steps, if the links do not work go to the official site and get the packets.

    Adobe has done another change up so here is the updated code for the guys script up top: nice script by the way. works well.

    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/pdc/11.1.102.55/install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
    wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplatformruntimes/flashplayer11-2/flashplayer11-2_p4_install_lin_32_011912.tar.gz
    
    tar xfvz flashplayer11-2_p4_install_lin_32_011912.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_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
    mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins

    THANK GOD FOR THIS THREAD. I could not get the flash to work even after going through the wiki and googling how to get the flash to work.


    I'd also like to mention that the latest script posted in here works for bt5 kde 64 bit as well.

    I have been with linux for years, and flash support was sticky.
    I found that Firefox Add on, Flash AID, will install your correct version and remove all. Runs a bunch of scripts and gets the flash set up for other browsers.
    Works fine on 64 version , also you can install the beta version of Flash if you want or the stable version.
    I know sounds lazy but simplicity it's smart

    it's right, just install firefox flash-aid,then it will install the right version flash player , the installed flashplayer works good with chrome and firefox .

    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

    Hi,
    Try this quick way, paste this code in the terminal and be cool after hinting Enter

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gsfonts gsfonts-x11 flashplugin-nonfree
