Will someone explain to me the best way to install Flash Player for FireFox if a person does not use Google Chrome?
I use Chrome, so from what I've read...and been told here by at least cat1092 and probably more - FireFox will somehow use the Pepperflashplugin that is included with Chrome to play video like in youtube.
Have also read that Flashplayer should be installed via official ubuntu site or from the Adobe site as a .tar.gz file. Then I see others trying to install various things from the Terminal. As usual it is all very daunting to understand.
Was also testing this out via. LiveUSB, and could not install the .tar.gz file from ubuntu source page. I'm quite sure I was doing it wrong as I have read up on it more since, think I got that part now, but is that the beat way? I was however able to drop the Debian Folder contents from the tar.gz file into the Mozilla Plugins Folder, and that seemed to install it, at least temporarily.
Another interesting observation, is Ubuntu distro's don't seem to have an issue with playing video's in youtube from liveusb. In Mint, I have to "Allow The Outdated Plugin" to watch vids, but not so in Ubuntu.
Another question, how do I check which version is installed, this is what I tried in LiveUSB but did not work:
dpkg -l | grep flash
