How do I install Adobe Flash Player on Ubuntu (12.04) 32bit ARMv7 Little Endian machine? The .tar.gz and .deb files contains shared libraries for i386 target.
Welcome to Adobe Forums.
You can follow these steps :
1) Login with "root" user on your Ubuntu 12.04
2) Launch "Terminal" (Keyboard Shortcut : Ctrl +Alt +T)
3) Type this command and hit Enter : sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
4) Launch Firefox and check do you have Flash Player (http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/)
Thank you for your reply. Could you tell me what source link should I add
to /etc/apt/sources.list file?
If I follow the steps you mentioned I get "Package 'flashplugin-installer'
has no installation candidate" and it fails.

Thanks again. The link and the tar.gz file points to an image for Intel 386
architecture. I confirmed it using readelf -h <lib-name>. I need it for
Then I unpacked the .apk files of android releases from your websites, I
was able to find the libflashplayer.so for ARM LE target there. If I copy
to the /usr/lib/.../plugins/ directory, and if I type www.youtube.com, the
browser crashes. But the same browser works fine if I browse pages that
dont have flash content in it.

A few days ago I actually had Flash under Firefox and Kubuntu 12.10 working correctly, but some update or other seems to have killed it -- in two stages. First, I wasn't able to play Flash pages on the Flash Media server -- I kept getting the "not available" error. In my attempts to correct that I instead made things worse; now I can't view any Flash pages at all.
I've done the obvious things. I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled flashplugin-installer. I've downloaded both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of that package and tried to install the software from the downloaded packages instead of from the repositories. I've copied libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins. Nothing seems to help.
I'm running out of ideas.
desktop arm7 is an unsupported platform for flash player. the desktop flash player will not work as i am told it utilizes intel instructions and the mobile version is tightly integrated with the android OS most functionality would not work under Linux Ubuntu.
