    Question Flash Player Install?

    Hey guys, I have some problems. At the moment I'm working with Knoppix 4.0.2 but I can't watch videos on youtube. I think I have to install the Flash Player, but I have no idea how to. I've got Knoppix 5.1 too, but at the moment I use the other version. If it's not possible on the older version, you can also teach me about the 5.1 Thanks.

    Why not try the new Knoppix (=> 4a) version?

    You should read the system requirements for Adobe Flash player 11 on Linux systems: Adobe Flash Player 11 / Tech specs Firefox 4.0 or better won't run on Knoppix 5.1.1 since some libraries are too old.

    some videos are not working with Knoppix 5 + an old Flash player so it's better to use a Knoppix 6 at least - download the Flash player on the Adobe.com (.tar.gz) and uncompress it - create a "plugins" directory in your ~/.mozilla - copy the libflashlayer.so you got in the archive into this plugins directory - then sudo cp -r usr/* /usr with Chromium/Knoppix 7, it's even easier

    The Flash Player downloaded from the Adobe site is the following file:
    install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz
    There is a readme.txt file inside the archive which states:
    Unpack the tar.gz file. Once unpacked you will see the following:
    + libflashplayer.so
    + /usr
    o Identify the location of the browser plugins directory, based on your Linux distribution and Firefox version
    o Copy libflashplayer.so to the appropriate browser plugins directory. At the prompt type:
    + cp libflashlayer.so <BrowserPluginsLocation>
    o Copy the Flash Player Local Settings configurations files to the /usr directory. At the prompt type:
    + sudo cp -r usr/* /usr
    However, when the command
    cp libflashlayer.so <BrowserPluginsLocation>
    is executed at a root terminal it gives the following output:
    bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
    I also manually copied, as a superuser, the file to the folder
    /home/knoppix/.mozilla/extensions/a folder under this
    So where am I going wrong?

    Yes, it indeed is! One should follow the directions in the readme.txt file inside the archive install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz downloaded from the Adobe site, after following the instructions contained in the above post to create a 'plugins' directory, and manually copy the libflashplayer.so inside the plugins directory, restart the Iceweasel, and the effects will take place. Thanks!

    It is because the original text file within the archive contains the error
