Flash installation

Postby beaumont » Thu Nov 20, 2008 3:03 am

Has anyone successfully installed Adobe Flash? I have tried without success. Have followed the instructions in wiki. I am a Mac user and have familiarized myself with the general workings of the XO. Would appreciate a bit of help. Thanks!

For use in Firefox:

Go to http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer in Firefox
Under "Select version to download..." pick ".tar.gz for Linux"
Click "Agree and install now"
Select "Save File" (at some point I hope journal integration will occur here)
Close the download manager window when the download is complete with Ctrl-W (erk)
Exit Firefox (File->Quit, then "Quit" button)
Open the Terminal activity.
At the prompt, type: ~/Activities/Firefox*/install-flash
Type 'y' and press enter when requested, then 'n' to decline further installations.

I have loaded flash successfully, but...

Every time there is flash content on a page, I get a "flash box" where it says "click to play content.

Is there no way to just have it play automatically? This is a pain.

(by the way, clicking on the flash box works -- it displays the flash content just fine).

Thanks! I'll give that a try. And next time I promise to read the whole page when I install something. I think that's exactly the page I used to figure how to install Flash in the first place.

I'm also having a difficult time installing flash on my son's XO G1G1. I have followed the links above and "no luck".
Can someone who's successfully been able to play youtube videos on the linux show me the way...

I added FLASH to my XO, but it just does not work properly to see videos while online!
