Firefox Flashplayer Plugin

Flash is said to be on its way out. That may be the case, however, I still need it. Currently Adobe is supporting thet NPAPI Flashplayer plugin and these directions are not really necessary. Just in case, there is a need to use the PPAPI here is how you can set it up.

Graphic User Interface Method

Set up the Packman repository following these instructions.
Open up the Software Manager from YaST
Search for and select:
  • freshplayerplugin
  • chromium-pepper-flash
Select Accept
Restart Firefox and you’re done.

Terminal Install Method

Open a terminal like konsole.

This can be done by pressing Alt+F2 and typing in either “terminal” or “konsole”

Add the Packman Repository
