Installing The Native Linux Flash Player 9 On Ubuntu January 18, 2007

Posted by Nigel Ajay Kumar (NAyK) in Flash 9, How-To, Linux, Software, Ubuntu, Working with Linux.

Good news! Flash 9 is finally found on Linux.

Sourced text (desktoplinux):

Adobe Systems has finally released the long-awaited Adobe Flash Player 9 for Linux. This version of Flash Player was meant to be feature-comparable to Adobe’s latest Windows and Mac OS versions, and is the first version of Flash on Linux that really is just as good as the Windows and Mac OS versions. Additionally, a tutorial on how to install it on Ubuntu.

“How to install Flash 9 on Ubuntu” article found here.

I hope to try this on my machines and put the results on soon. Thus, it is largely untested (by me).

More about the Flash 9 player here.

(latest update: I’ve tried and tested it on openSUSE 10.2 and it works, quite easily actually).

The plugin appears to work fine, but some websites don’t seem to be “aware” that the plugin is installed (for example the KTM website). What’s up with this? Any ideas how to “force” these sites to recognize that I do, in fact, have the plugin installed?
