Flashplayer 9 on linux



Macromedia Flash player 9 running on linux? Impossible? No… many things that seem impossible, well… aren’t This morning there’s a good writeup at how-to-forge about installing flash player 9 on linux. It involves wine and the how-to is specific to Ubuntu. However, the first two steps (sudo apt-get install wine and sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts) are the only ones that are ubuntu specific. For your given distribution, install according to your distro (urpmi/etc.)


This tutorial also makes use of firefox for Windows via wine to integrate with the flash player 9 plugin. Wine has made some real strides lately. I’m interested to try this out and see how well things work.
