Updating Flash on Ubuntu 10.04

On one of my machine I had Ubuntu 10.04 which got its Firefox upgraded to 15, so from then on when ever I opened Firefox it would connect to Mozilla's website to check if all the plugin are upto date and it kept complaining that Flash is out of date. It also gave me a small button next to it to fix the issue.  So I clicked it and downloaded the tar.gz file, extracted it.

Then move the old to old.

# mv /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so_old

Then copy the from the extracted tar.gz file to the location.

# cp -rvf /home//Downloads/software/Adobe\ Flash/install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Restart the browser, The plugin check should not complain once again.  Then go ahead and remove the old libflashplayer.so_old file.

# rm /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so_old
