Flash 9 and 10 in Linux

Usually Flash 10 should work in most Linux distros.
Installing version 10.1.53.64 is now advisable.

Flashplayer 9 in Linux is only necessary for distros with libc version < 2.4 .

For flashplayer 9.0.277.0 for Linux here the download address,
because it's hard to find :

from the site : http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
download "Linux Flash Player 9 Plugin content debugger"
or the direct link :
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/9/flashplayer_9_plugin_debug.tar.gz

If Flashplayer 10 does not work, watch if liblcms.so.1 is present in
/usr/lib/ , if it is not you can add it.
It is for example in
liblcms1_1.18.dfsg-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
for Ubuntu and its derivatives, or in
liblcms1_1.17.dfsg-1+lenny2_i386.deb
for Debian.
If you should want liblcms.so.1 alone, you can unpack the .deb
using the program "alien" to make a tar.gz with the command
alien -tc FILE
and unpack then the tar.gz package.
For distros using .rpm packages,
look here :
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/3/srodzaj/1/search/liblcms.so.1
Alien would also unpack .rpm's.

Can K-Meleon use it ?

For now, I just use the windows modified version which allows to save swf files.

With K-Meleon, I also can only use Flash 10 for Windows
or Flash 9 for Windows.
I have posted the other location to download only
for people, who have to use Flash for Linux with
a Linux browser also and have difficulties with
Flash 10, because they use an older distro with
an older libc.
Flash 9 for Linux is not easy to find.
In such older distros, if liblcms.so.1 is missimg,
this may also be a reason why Flash 10 would not work.

Flashplayer 10 has been upgraded to 10.1.82.76.
Download from here :
http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
For K-Meleon with wine you need the Windows version.

For distros with libc < than version 2.4., Flash 10 does not
work, and the updated Windows version 9r280 is necessary.
Look for "Flash for other systems" and select "for
other browsers" (Firefox etc).

Flashplayer 9 (Linux) is also the choice for native Linux
browsers like Firefox or Seamonkey in distros with
libc < then version 2.4., where Flash 10 does not work.
Download Flash 9r280 for Linux from here :
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/9/flashplayer_9_plugin_debug.tar.gz

Flashplayer 9 in Linux is only necessary for distros with libc version < 2.4 .

If Flashplayer 10 does not work, watch if liblcms.so.1 is present in
/usr/lib/ , if it is not you can add it as described in my earlier post.

No interest here, as K-Meleon can only uses Windows plugins ...

@Jujuland : Thanks, you are damn right! smiling smiley I was just thinking of those 'cross platform' things and i mess it up. I just have read about Wine and ReactOS. They are quite sharing the same win32 stuff and ReactOS seems to support NT drivers!!! drool smiley fine for me! grinning smiley So now i'd rather try httpstreaming perfs with ReactOS, KM and Flash(for windows!) confused smiley grinning smiley Have a nice end of year!!!

Flashplayer 9 will not be updated anymore.
Linux distros with libc version < 2.4
do not work with Flashplayer 10.
(if /lib/libc.so.6 is a symbolic link to
libc-2.3.so or lower.)
This is also the case for Flash 9 with wine.
Updating libc to a newer version is difficult
in many cases without damaging the system.
If it is not possible, it should be considered
to use a more recent Linux distro, to avoid
security risks using Flash 9.
If Flashplayer 10 does not work in a distro
with a more recent libc version, watch if
liblcms.so.1 is present in /usr/lib/ .
If necessary, it can be added as described
in my earlier posting above.

Additional note:

If Flash 10.2 for Linux does not work correctly
in a specific Linux Distro, there may be libraries
missing. Libcurl could possibly not be loaded.

Try to update to libcurl.so.4.0.1 or newer.
Its dependencies are in /usr/libs :

libcurl-gnutils.so.3
libgcrypt.so.11
libgpg-error.so.0
libgssapi_krb5.so.2
libk5crypto.so.3
libkrb5.so.3
libkrb5support.so.0
liblber-2.4.so.2
libldap_r-2.4.so.2
libsasl2.so.2

and in /lib:

libkeyutils.so.1

All the libraries can also have a higher version number,
as long as there are symlinks to them, having the
basic version names.

If there should be still more dependency files
missing, you can find them using in a
terminal the string :

ldd /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4.0.1

All this should not be concerning Flash for Windows with wine,
but only native Linux Browsers.

Sometimes there is also missing in /usr/lib/

libgnutls.so.13

and in some cases also

libtasn1.so.3
