That's not too confusing. Just type these three commands, as Mauriat Miranda suggests.
Code:
sudo rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe...0-1.noarch.rpm
sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
sudo yum install flash-plugin libflashsupport

Restart Firefox and you'll be good to go.

OK, when I open Terminal, I type in sudo rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe...0-1.noarch.rpm
and it says this:

Kast is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

Hello:

You will have to do some ... a little bit of reading once in a while
See: http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...a-f9.html#sudo
If you find that is too much or you cannot be bothered, then use Dangermouses' installation script.

Just type "su -" (there is a space in there and without the quotation marks) and then leave the sudo out of the commands.

Yum is already installed. You don't need to install it. To setup sudo you need to be able to log in as root (in a terminal). Forget sudo for now. Open a terminal and type su - and enter the root password. Then type the commands I outlined in post # 4 but omit the word sudo from those commands. If you can't manage this refer to what Seve said in post # 6.

I typed su - at the first prompt, and then the password....Then I typed the first command and this is what I got...

I clicked on the ".tar.gz" link but it will not download to my desktop, it only downloads to a "download" folder....However I extracted it to the desktop just fine. LIne #4 of these directions say to navigate to "this" directory in Terminal and type: ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer. When it says navigate to "this" directory, what directory is it reffering to?



1) Click the "Download .tar.gz" link. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file

2) Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.

3) Unpackage the file. A directory called install_flash_player_9_linux will be created

4) In terminal, navigate to this directory and type ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer. Click Enter. The installer will instruct you to shut down your browser(s).

5) Once the installation is complete, the plug-in will be installed in your Mozilla browser. To verify, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu

I've got the libflashplayer.so file right in front of me, but I can't seem to copy it to the "plugins" folder.... It won't let me drag it to the "plugins" folder, it says: "permission denied"
