    Post How to install flash 11 on Backtrack 5 R3 x64

    Here is a little script that i made that will get firefox(nightly) up and running with flash support.

    Tested working with Gnome 64-bit firefox(nightly)
    Code:
    # Prepare Directory's
    pkill firefox
    mkdir /tmp/fox
    cd /tmp/fox
    rm -rf /opt/firefox/*
    rm -rf /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/*
    mkdir /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
    mkdir /opt/firefox
    
    # Download Resources
    wget http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/firefox-23.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2
    wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/11.2.202.280/install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
    
    # Extract Resources
    tar -xvf firefox-23.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2
    tar -xvf install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
    
    # Install
    cp -R firefox/* /opt/firefox
    cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    
    # Done
    echo 'Installation Complete'
    Alternatice link for orignal version of firefox if you do not wish to install firefox(nightly)

    I have installed the 32bit BT5R3 onto my laptop (HDD INSTALL) and I CANNOT get Flash to work AT ALL on Firefox from BT. I have tried all of the update tips and tricks posted here but no avail. It's as if Firefox doesnt recognize Flash is installed. I have installed the latest version but when I go to Adobe's test URL, it doesnt show anything and doesnt list me as installed and operational. In particular I am needing this to work so I can load my NESSUS web client.

    I have even tried using the Firefox update feature, (and it shows my latest install -- but says its vulnerable and needs updated. I have also temporarily disabled no-script thinking it might be the issue. I read a couple of threads where users were indicating they had to make changes to no-script but didnt say what those changes were.

    I am out of ideas........

    PLEASE HELP.

    Definitely works! Thanks so much - this is the only thing I could find to get 64-bit of both to work.

    Note you have to get the updated firefox packages at http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/

    Goto the latest folder then x86_64 unless you're using nightly.

    Much appreciated.

    Curses! I ran the script and almost immediately incurred my consoles wrath. Honestly, can't remember what it told me... I have rebooted since I got it and is lost in the KDE abyss.

    Now FF does not launch. I don't get any errors, it clicks and nothing happens. So, I went to install FF again, hoping to triumph once again... but it says it's installed already.

    I un/installed to save my beloved FF; I guess I am just a dumb n00b. :S

    first of all, download the flash player 11 in the buttom here: http://www.pentest.co.kr/index.php?d...86&mid=bt5_bbs
    #tar xvzf install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz
    #mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/


    although it is i386, work well in 64bit.
