So I had to look this up (you're still not telling me what I need to
know -- but we'll get to that). I assume you ended up here at some
That being the case, which format did you select? Xandros uses deb
files, although I suspect selecting any one of the deb formats from
the list Adobe gives you would be silly -- the meta data for the
package probably won't match up. So... that leaves the generic
.tar.gz format. I suggest you try downloading that.
When you've done that you can then open a terminal up and type:
tar xzvf ./file.tar.gz
There's several things I've assumed here, not least of all that the
resultant file you've downloaded is indeed in "$HOME/Desktop" and that
the file is really called "file.tar.gz". Some level of common sense
on your part is needed here.
Then (apparently) you can then:
cd ./install_flash_player_10_linux && sudo ./flashplayer-installer
You will then need to close and reopen firefox, should the above work.
