    Those with Fedora 11 x64, you can copy libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/

    If Flash doesn’t work, try quitting Firefox: File > Quit.

    Worked perfectly for me when I tried quitting Firefox, rather than clicking the X on the top right of the window.

    Very helpful post.

    Just thought that I would add a small point. You cant just drag drop the file. You get a permission denied error. You need to become root to write to the /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ directory.

    The command for that is:
    Password: *******
    #cp ‘/home/shaunak/Desktop/libflashplayer.so’ ‘/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins’

    [Assuming you extracted to desktop.]

    Thanks. I tried a lot of instructions to install Flash Player. But this was the only one that worked.

    Many thanks

    You rock!

    like these other guys.. I had huge problems till I found this blog. Good going!

  9. Jordan Says:

    I followed numerous other websites who had “guaranteed” instructions, all of which failed. Yours is incredibly short and to-the-point, and best of all _works_. Thank you!

  10. Attila Says:

    Thanks for the simple instruction! It worked fine with Fedora 11 x86_64. However, I have now upgraded to Fedora 12 x86_64 (clean install) and it doesn’t seems to work anymore. Do you know perhaps why? Best regards

    This site truly has all the information and facts I wanted concerning this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

    I don’t leave a great deal of comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here Fedora 11 x64. And I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it only me or does it seem like a few of these comments look as if they are written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at other social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you list of all of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
