    Unhappy Cannot install Flash Player 11 on BackTrack 5 R1

    I cannot install the Flash Player 11 from the Flash official site as the .deb file cannot be handled by the BackTrack 5 R1 for the download.

    Meanwhile, after managed to get the .deb file and installed. The Firefox 5.0.1 on the BackTrack 5 R1 reports no Flash plugin. Therefore, Nessus cannot be ran properly.

    Any idea to fix these problems?

    The wiki guide did not work for me. I've tried installing Flash via the Wiki instruction a few times.


    The post from sasanet worked for me. Thanks for the instructions!

    I know what kind of nice first post I have... but can't help it.
    I downloaded BT5R1 Gnome x64 and installed it on my memory stick and boot the computer from it. As all newbies I also have the flashplayer problem. I tried a few things from updating firefox to version 8, to install a flash installer plugin for Firefox (which didn't do squat) to the post from one of the mods here to this one. I still have the problem. With this thread here, the "wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz" is not available anymore. So far I tried to install the latest version of flash x64 in a tar.gz version, but I still can't get it going.

    Can someone please either send me a valid link to flashplayer 10 or someone figure out how to get this new flashplayer 11 werkin?

    Thanks guys!
