Using Adobe’s own YUM repository it is very easy also keep up-to-date with Flash Player Plugin. Finally also native 64-bit (x86_64) version of Adobe Flash Player is available for Linux users. Where did you get this information?

I still cannot install this. By all intents and purposes it SHOULD be installed. However, Flash player does not even display in the plugins menu. It’s like Mozilla (or Chromium) are just “Choosing” to not see it. No clue what I’m doing wrong anymore but the google gods seem to be failing me.

After running:
yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl

This is what I am shown:
Package flash-plugin- already installed and latest version
Package nspluginwrapper-1.4.4-1.el6_3.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package alsa-plugins-pulseaudio-1.0.21-3.el6.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package libcurl-7.19.7-46.el6.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do


Now looking at this, one would assume that the plugin is working and should run. However, upon exiting firefox and reopening the Plugin still remains elusive.

Using Firefox 44.0.2

Hi Tylor,

You are running Firefox 44.0.2 on EL6 system?

First question is how your Firefox is installed? Reason might be custom installation which doesn’t recognize your Flash plugin (or any other plugins). Tested just with Firefox ESR 38.6.1 on CentOS 6 and this method is working without problems.

I am using 44.0.2. I don’t recall using any special method in installing it. I downloaded a RPM repository from Mozilla and installed it.

That said. I installed the newest possible version of Firefox I could find, because I was having the same problems with the default version of the browser. Now I don’t pretend to be a Linux pro (the opposite actually) and if I can figure out how to reinstall the default version of firefox to get flash working I would gladly do so. Unfortunately it’s not practical at this time to just reinstall the OS (or I likely would have by now).

Okay, so my bad.

Turns out I installed 44.0.2 by compiling the binaries, not through the RPM.

I ended up re-installing Centos 6.7 from scratch. The first thing I did? you guessed it! installed the flash player for firefox, and low and behold the thing works.

It can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that this was a ID10T Error.

Thanks for the help

Hello pals, you all too can install from de offical website. For fedora X you have to select “YUM for Linux” version.

Sorry, I’m a newbie… :-(
If I install Adobe Flash Player using these instructions, will future versions be installed automatically, or is there something that I must do manually?
