Install Flash Player in BackTrack 5

  • As you may have noticed Flash Player does not work on Backtrack 5, so in order to fix this we first need to remove the current flash player by issuing the following commands:
root@bt:~# apt-get purge flashplugin-nonfree flashplugin-installer gnash gnash-common mozilla-plugin-gnash swfdec-mozilla
root@bt:~# rm -f /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/*flash*
root@bt:~# rm -f /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/*flash*
root@bt:~# rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/*flash*
root@bt:~# rm -f ~/.mozilla/plugins/*flash*so
root@bt:~# rm -rfd /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper
  • After removing flash we need to get the new flash player from the official website:
  1. Flash x64 ONLY FOR x64.
  2. Flash Player Download the .tar.gz file.
  • We will begin with Flash Square, SKIP THIS if you aren't using an x64 version of BackTrack.
root@bt:~# tar xvfz flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz
root@bt:~# chown root:root libflashplayer.so
root@bt:~# chmod 644 libflashplayer.so
root@bt:~# cp -f libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
root@bt:~# rm -rf libflashplayer.so
root@bt:~# ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
  • Next up we will take care of the Flash Player:
root@bt:~# tar xvfz install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz
root@bt:~# mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
root@bt:~# mv -f libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
root@bt:~# ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/
root@bt:~# ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/plugins/
  • We can test if flash player works over here
