Adobe Flash Player 10

Hi All,

Recently I had been approached asking as to how to install Flash player on Lenny 64 bit.

This post is self explanatory from below:

1. Use synaptic to update your repos - such that it has enabled. [Debian Backports]
2. Update your repos then.
3. Use apt-get command or synaptic itself to install the player. See below for apt-get:
apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
4. Finally run this command /usr/sbin/update-flashplugin-nonfree --install as the root user.

Note: As far as possible try installing the free version of flash player and I would not suggest you folks using the nonfree version. Decision left to you folks finally.
