KALI – How to install Flash for Kali Linux – The Visual Guide
When you do a fresh install of Kali, flash is not installed.
Step 1 – Download Flash for Kali Linux
Click the dropdown box – look for Other Linux Options
.tar.gz for Other Linux
After download, right click on the icon and OPEN
You’ll see the zipped file shown on your Desktop
Step 2 – Unzip the flash file
2.1 Open a Terminal (black TV icon) – Here comes the tricky bit
Change directory to your Desktop – notice the different commands if you need the 32 bit or 64 bit flash version.
tar xzvf install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz
tar xzvf install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
It will then start to extract all the zipped files.
Extracted files looks like this
Step 3 – libflashplayer.so copied over to Plugins Directory
You’ll notice a file called libflashplayer.so is extracted. This is the critical file. We copy this over to the Mozilla Plugins directory for Ice-weasel.
cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
(With thanks to Call911), you might want to try this as your final step, and it should confirm packages are up to date:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
Youtube video’s etc will now run for you.
