Adobe Flash Player on OpenSolaris

Getting Flash to work with Firefox on OpenSolaris was fairly simple.

NOTE – this installs the plugin for all users.

  1. First, download the Flash plugin package from Adobe – Adobe Flash Player.
  2. I prefer to unzip anything I’m about to install to /usr/src
    cd /usr/src
  3. Unpack the plugin
    sudo tar zxvf /path/to/flash_player_10_solaris_x86.tar.bz2
  4. Find the Firefox plugins directory
    find / -name plugins
  5. Copy the Flash library to that directory
    sudo cp flash_player_10_solaris_r45_2_x86/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
  6. Restart Firefox, and verify that Flash works.
