Marius Popa, a Phoronix reader and also developer for the Firebird database application, has passed along a tutorial today for those of you who may be interested in using Macromedia's Flash Player v8.5 with Firefox under WINE, seeing as Macromedia has yet to present any Linux 8.5 port, let alone a x86_64 build. These instructions were carried out using Ubuntu Dapper Drake (v6.06). As always, Phoronix takes no responsibility for user contributed guides. 1.) Install WINE (sudo apt-get install wine) 2.) Install msttcorefonts (sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts) 3.) Download Firefox for Windows at Mozilla 4.) Run the setup (wine Firefox\ Setup\ 126.96.36.199.exe) 5.) Download the Macromedia Flash Windows 8.5 Setup 6.) Install the setup with WINE (wine install_flash_player_8-5_beta.exe) 7.) Point the plug-in directory to c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins 8.) wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Mozilla\ Firefox/firefox.exe with about:plugins to display the results
