I'm thus far unable to get a flash player plugin to work in FF 13.0 on RHEL 5.8 64 bit. I've tried the suggested YUM, rpm, and tar.gz methods, and i've placed the libflashplayer.so in just about all locations I can think of:
/firefox/ <== where FF13 installed
It always looks like it installed correctly, but when I restart FF, the plug-in is not loaded. Any ideas?
Thanks for any help you can provide,
first determine if your firefox version is 32 or 64-bit. i suspect it is 32-bit and you've been attempting to install the 64-bit plugin. if this is the case, download and install the 32-bit version of the plugin in any of the 2 locations you noted above. i usually install in ~/.mozilla/plugins for convenience.
please let me know if your issue is different. thanks...
Ah, I assumed that http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ would automatically select the correct version (since it's detecting what type of browser I'm using). But it picks up that I'm on 64 bit linux, even though I've using 32bit FF. Thanks for you help. Is there no 64 bit FF13 for linux?
