I am using Lubuntu 10.10 to browse the Internet right now to test out that very good and useful distribution of Linux and I needed to install the Adobe flash plugin for Chromium. I downloaded the tar.gz file containing the plugin for Linux and unpacked it by typing tar -xvf install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz and then I had these files in my Downloads folder.
[email protected]:/home/ubuntu/Downloads# cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/
Then I typed sudo su – to switch to the root user and then typed cd /usr/lib and mkdir mozilla && cd mozilla && mkdir plugins. After that I went back to the /home/ubuntu/Downloads folder and typed cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ to copy the libflashplayer.so file to the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder. Then after re-starting chromium, it worked perfectly. Very simple. In other news, I have recently received a copy of Doom3 from a friend which I am running on Windows 7. I will be downloading the Linux client very soon to enable me to run this game on a more secure operating system though. Doom3 is an amazing game and the whole Mars base is very well done.
