Adobe Flash Player 9 is finally out of beta ! No more feeling like a second class netizen on “flashy” sites !
Here’s how I installed it on Ubuntu Dapper (the package is for Debian Sarge, but seems to work fine):
Use right-click, “Save Link As …” and save it to \tmp.
$ cd /tmp
$ sudo dpkg -i flashplugin-nonfree_188.8.131.52.4~bpo1_i386.deb
(you’ll be prompted for your password, and once you provide it, the install should happen)
You can check if it worked by typing about:plugins into the URL box in Firefox. You should see something like “Shockwave Flash 9.0 d78″ on that page.
Now go view some F-F-F-Flash cartoons 🙂 (I don’t think Homerstarrunner requires Flash 9, but it’s the only Flash site I use on any regular basis)
