After checking that Macromedia Flash was missing, giving the option to install,License Agreement etc.when proceeded to install. It failed and informed me to do a manual install.
- Flash Plugin can be downloaded here.
- extract and run the flashplayer-installer.
- it will ask:
Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla):
Giving anything other than your Installed Browser's lib directory will fail.
Here,after googling and checking few forums, I did locate firefox | grep lib and got the answer as /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.4/. Yeah, Firefox
lib directory is at /usr/lib/firefox-X.X.X where X.X.X is the version number and plugin directory is present inside this.
-Verify your flash-plugin installation by checking this.
Note: I did not have to close my firefox browser when I installed the plugin.
