Installing Flash plugin for Firefox in Slackware

I set this up on Slackware Linux 12.2, so newer and older versions may do things differently.

Method

Download the flash player compressed installer from Adobe: install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz

Decompress the installer:

gunzip install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz

Untar the file:

tar -xvf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar

change into the flash9 directory

cd flash9

Stop Firefox:

Run the installer script (Change the install directory from /usr/lib/mozilla to /usr/lib/firefox when prompted):

bash flashplayer-installer

Restart Firefox, and you're done! - You can check if it works by going to Adobe's site.
