10.3.1. Enabling Flash Plugin

Fedora includes an experimental free and open source implementation of Flash called gnash. We encourage you to experiment with gnash before seeking out Adobe's proprietary Flash plugin software.

To install Adobe Flash plugin follow this procedure:

1. Visit Adobe's download site.

2. Choose option 3, Yum repository.

3. Follow onscreen prompts to install the package.

4. Launch Applications → Add/Remove Software.

5. Choose the Search tab and enter flash-plugin.

6. Select the checkbox to install the package.

7. Close all Firefox windows, and then launch Firefox again.

8. Type about:plugins in the URL bar to ensure the plugin is loaded.

Users of Fedora x86_64 must install the nspluginwrapper.i386 package to enable the 32-bit Adobe Flash plugin in x86_64 Firefox and the pulseaudio-libs.i386 package to enable sound from the plugin..

1. Create the 32bit mozilla plugin directory using this command:

      su -c 'mkdir -p /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins'
2. Install the nspluginwrapper.i386, nspluginwrapper.x86_64, and pulseaudio-libs.i386 packages:
      su -c "yum -y install nspluginwrapper.{i386,x86_64} pulseaudio-libs.i386"
3. Install flash-plugin as shown above. 4. Run mozilla-plugin-config to register the flash plugin:
su -c 'mozilla-plugin-config -i -g -v'

5. Close all Firefox windows, and then relaunch Firefox.

6. Type about:plugins in the URL bar to ensure the plugin is loaded.

An easier way:

# rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-relea....0-1.noarch.rpm

# rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

# mkdir -p /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

# yum install nspluginwrapper.{i386,x86_64} pulseaudio-lib.i386

# yum install flash-plugin

# mozilla-plugin-config -i -g -v
