Where do I put libflashplayer.so for linux?

Inserita

openSuSE 12.1 firefox 33.1

Flash doesn't load by default so I downloaded the flash plugin. I have libflashplayer.so, where do I put that file so that firefox will load it?

The '<installdir>/plugins' directory doesn't exist, so I created it and copied there. No luck. Copied into the root install directory. No luck. There's a components directory with some .so files so I copied it there and updated the manifest. Still no joy.

Where does it go?

This is installed from tarball, 64 bit, installed to /usr/lib64/firefox. The proper location has changed to:

/usr/lib64/firefox/browser/plugins/

After untarring, the .../browser directory exists, but not .../browser/plugins, so it's not obvious that is the new home. The old directory (/usr/lib64/firefox/plugins/) no longer works.

in the .mozilla folder for the user (need to be able to view hidden folder/files) create a folder named plugins then place libflashplayer.so and any other Plugins you want Mozilla products like Firefox, SeaMonkey and Thunderbird to use.

Note that there is a difference between the location of a 32 bit Firefox version and 64 bit Firefox versions. The regular Firefox version is 32 bit.

The 64-bit Firefox version for Linux is regular also. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

The location depends on how you install it as whether by package or by where you extract tarball from mozilla.org

Also OpenSUSE 12.1 is three years old now. http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=suse
