Download the Tar.gz, click to open/unwrap w/ archiver.
Once unwrapped to [tmp] wherever. grab libflashplayer.so, and put it into [drag n drop]the usr/lib/seamonkey/plugins, Firefox will generally look for it there also, or usr/lib/firefox/plugins... or I guess the same for opera, tho I don't use it.

Which version of Puppy?

You can find some .pet installers for Flash on the forum, however. This search page would be a good place to start when trying to find .pets on the forum (I don't have any links handy, sorry. Neutral ).

Place flash library somewhere, for example /mnt/home/flashplayer/, then drag it back to the required install location and instead of copying the file, use "link relative".

Ah yes very appreciated. That was how I learned to to do with Firefox some year ago then I forgot it again.

I never understood what was the diffrence between having a relative or absolute such link.

Bot did seemed to work but if you have tested then I trust that relative are the better for the purpose.

So are flash always a free standing program then or can it be somehow integrated as a plugin into mozilla Firefox?

I have to test how it works. One of the flash pets had a newer Flash that did crash all the time so I got a recommendation to go back to an older and that worked wonder, now it never crash.

Have you had similar experiences ?

If you have a copy of the plugin in one of Firefox's plugins directories, then, yes, Firefox should be able to use it as a plugin.

Do you have a copy of it at /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so, for example?

The Linux version of Flash is still rather (in my opinion) unstable. I believe they spend far more time working on the Windows version of Flash than any other platform/OS.

Is Flash not working for you? If you go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/, does the Flash animation show, and tell you what version of Flash you have installed?

Note that if you're using the NoScript extension with Firefox, it may be blocking some or all Flash videos.

You have version 10,1,85,3 installed
They say that their latest for linux are
Linux Mozilla, Firefox, SeaMonkey 10.2.152.27

But Pemasu in Snowfox based on Lupu5.2 had to go back to older for to solve that it crash too easily and now using this one it never crash for me while using the latest it did crash all the time. Within a minute or so at second or third music file on youtube or first streaming file on local TV station.

So I will not change it to somethign else I want to learn how to have it outside of the pupsavefile and still get activated by FF that I also want to have outside of pupsave.

Hmm... the page says the latest version (Linux/Mozilla browsers) is 10.2.152.27. Shocked I just updated recently, and it claims my version is 10.1.102.65. Rolling Eyes

...I don't know if I need to rush to update, again. Neutral

Well, I haven't had any crashes, but I do use an older system with only 128MB RAM, so I don't view Flash video all that often. (I only recently increased my swapfiles to include a second with 512MB, so YouTube does play a little better... still not really a substitute for more RAM and a better video card, though. Sad )

You could save the libflashplayer.so file outside the pupsave, and symlink it to wherever the browsers/etc. need it. But you're only really saving 12-13MB, that way (the plugin is only roughly 12-13MB), assuming you would only keep one copy of the plugin file and symlink copies to all the other directories, if necessary, anyway.
