    Hi, Mr. Schulz, why is it that you say hello to Mr. Kuhman but not to me ..
    Yes, I know your real name from PM and also from some other people of this forum. But I don'l like nicknames and I never use it within a greeting formula. I respect it, if people want to hide themselves. It is something else, if people here use a real name. If so, I'll use their first name for greetings.
    Hence, in particular cases, we do need to remember the manual install methods.
    Yes, but the use of apt or aptitude is a manual install method and nothing happens automatic. I prefer aptitude.

    If you use "aptitude install foo", then aptitude tries to find a solution. If there are problems, aptitude offers to look for other solutions or to quit. Perhaps, one of the other suggestions will fit. If no, you can try "aptitude install -t stable foo" or "aptitude install -t testing foo" or one of the many other options of aptitude.

    Regarding rewriting of man pages with many examples

    Thanks for explaining! You _can_ always use my first name or my family name. There is nothing secretive about it. 'rajibando' is just my user name. In Debian, Ubuntu and Geogebra, I use my gmail user name. The name issue arises just because of the username one has to choose. I chose an intuitive one some fifteen years back, during the initial stages of internet exposure in my country.

    The difficulty with aptitude is the lack of illustrative examples, something which irks me. I had even decided at one point to rewrite the man pages of linux but I don't know where to begin. For each binary file (core utilities and other files) there are different maintainers. It would be difficult for me to contact each one when there is no centralised resource.

    Hello Rajib,

    perhaps the study of Debian 7 and of Debian Reference will get you any further.
    Greetings Werner

    needed 1 min 32 sec for installation of flashplugin-nonfree 1:3.5.
    With this I've got Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.394; this is the newest version from Adobe for free.
    Hello, Werner.
    I'm using V7.4.0 on a 8GB USB stick, and have installed flashplugin-nonfree 1:3.5.
    Would you please tell me, step by step, what have I to do to get Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.394 installed and working?
    Thanks,
    Eduardo

    Hello Eduardo!

    Code:
    aptitude update
    aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree
    After this have a look at "Iceweasel => Tools => Add-ons => Plugins"

    On websites with Flash content use within Iceweasel the "NoScript" icon => "Temporarily allow all this page"

    My apologies for answering so late...busy week.
    I did what you said and it worked!
    Thanks, Werner.
    PS: For some other stream contents I installed pepperflashplugin-nonfree (Pepper Flash Player - browser plugin) from Synaptic and now I have video and images for Iceweasel and Chromium.
    Thanks again!

    I too had an old Flash Plugin in my Knoppix system which was incapable of playing flash videos, particularly, from YouTube.
    I upgraded my Flash plugin by
    1. Manually creating a plugins folder as:
      Code:
      /home/knoppix/.mozilla/plugins
    2. Then I downloaded the compressed Flash plugin tar.gz package from Adobe website, Version 11.2.202.394 , uncompressed it, extracted the libflashplayer.so plugin and placed it in the plugins folder, and the other contents into folders for which they are intended.
    3. Then I tested with the flash version testing site . The site shows the current version no. 11,2,202,394 using commas, rather than full-stops.
    4. Now the sites which use adobe flash content are shown by my flash player within my browser, particularly, YouTube.
    5. Some sites might not be. You should check your Scripts- and Ads- blockers and reconfigure them.

    Hopefully, the problems would be solved.

    I like to install the flashplayer "manually" and have noticed that the 64 bit version doesn't seem to show up in aboutlugins under iceweasel. The 32 bit version however seems to run fine. You can just copy it into the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory.

    /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins doesn't seem to work and neither does /usr/lib/firefox/plugins.

    At the moment I'm running knoppix v7.4.1.

    I've done this manual install so many times that it's almost hardwired now:

    knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ cd Downloads/
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~/Downloads$ tar xzf install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~/Downloads$ sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~/Downloads$ sudo cp -r usr/* /usr
    knoppix@Microknoppix:~/Downloads$ uname -r
    3.16.2-64

    and closing/relaunching iceweasel and going to aboutlugins shows:

    Shockwave Flash

    File: libflashplayer.so
    Path: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    Version: 11.2.202.406
    State: Enabled
    Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

    No code line was necessary for me, installed with Synaptic
    flashplugin-nonfree
    and
    pepperflashplugin-nonfree

    and all works fine.
    The pepper thing is for seeing some stream contents.
