Installing Adobe Flash Player on Iceweasel

Recently, notification popped up in my browser and said that my flash player was outdated and I should update it. If this happen to you, you can find instructions below.

Go to Adobe Flash player download page:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Download .tar.gz package.

Extract archive in graphical environment or open Terminal, navigate to download directory and type:

tar -xvzf install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz

Go to Iceweasel directory:

cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

Copy file libflashplayer.so to plugins folder:

cp /<download_directory>/libflashplayer.so ./

or

mv /<download_directory>/libflashplayer.so ./

This will move file instead of copying it.

Thats it! Your Flash Player is now installed, you can see it under Menu>Add-ons>Plugins in Iceweasel.
