This is it. This is the officially blessed version of the Adobe Flash Player 9 for Linux (x86). Not a beta version; the final version. It’s released. Today.
Go get it.
Thank you SO MUCH!!!
Many thanks for your hard work, the beta’s been very good so I have high hopes for this release!
PLEASE please tell me that this one doesn’t have the instability of its predecessor in Firefox 2 under Linux…I am very, very happy to see 9 regardless of bugs though. Thank you so much, Adobe, for budgeting in Linux dev time for Flash.
Nicely done. You’ve significantly reduced the number of times I hae to reboot per day. Thanks.
And where do i find a stable version of gflashplayer?
What else can I say? Thank you!
What a excellent job!
Yet Another Thank You Post.Been using it since the first beta was released. Light-years better than F7.Will be installing it as soon as Debian version-upgrades from 18.104.22.168.4.And most of us really appreciate all the work you all do. Now we just wait for an AMD64 version of the binary. Is F9 also chock full of 32-bit i386 code that can never be ported to 64-bits?
Congratulations for the feat!
Great news, thank you!
Thanks a lot! You’re halfway done…
Thank you Mike!!!Very good job.
Great work !
ThanksI have struggled with flash for a long time and I finally got it working now. The install did not succeed at first and my problem was related to two packages previously installed.I run a Debian i686 system, and typing “about:plugins” in the browser reveled that an additional flash player was installed.I guessed that “libflash0c2″ and “libflash-mozplugin” did belong to glpflash, and thus removed them from the system.Now flashplayer finally works … thanks
Where is the corresponding standalone player? (gflashplayer)Thx.
Although I find it nice that Adobe finally has decided to show its Linux users some attention, I’m not really impressed by how this beta has been handled.The ALSA backend has major flaws, and although I reported it both during the first and second beta, it is still broken in the final release. The thread is here if there, evidence withstanding, is someone at adobe who gives a rat’s ass about it:http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/messageview.cfm?forumid=72&catid=616&threadid=1216478&enterthread=y
Brilliant!Do we have any change log?
but why does the rpm install in such weird directories where my browser doesn’t look,why not just /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins ?
Thank ya so much !!
Thanks a lot :DAnyone made Debian packages already?
Congratulations to the whole Flash Player team! You guys have done a fantastic job!
Has the standalone player disappeared from the surface of Earth ?
Please please please get more than just one developer on this project. Months ago you promised simultaneous releases to all platforms and shortly afterwards fooled everyone by announcing Adobe Acroboat Reader 8 for LInux/UNIX. But instead, all you gave was Actobot Reader 7.08. Linux is still waiting for you.If you keep treating Open Source as second-class citizens, this growing community will treat you as a second-class company, refuse to embrace Flash, or just work on gnash, which is making excellent progress by the way.Mike and the community might be able to get things done, but as a wealthy commerial company you continue to disappoint many people.Thank you, Mike, for the excellent work (and for eating a lot of c**p from people).
Great job! Thanks.PS. considering open-source it?
Thank you! Is there a changelog available?
May I ask where is support for Opera hiding?
Thanks for your hard work on bringing Flash 9 to Linux. It’s very much appreciated!
Excellent news, thanks for all the hard work put into this.Happy Ubuntu user!
Is it me or there is no standalone version? Anyway nice work done
Hurrah !This is great, great news. Many thanks for all your (and others) hard work getting this done.Is there a debug version of the player in this release too ? I can’t get to adobe.com as it seems to be a bit busy
Thanks, at least!
Good work ! Thank you, Adobe.It seems very usable. I am very glad.
what about standalone player? will it be available anytime soon?
Cool. However, and correct me if I’m wrong, there seems to be no stand alone player in the tar.gz arachive even though the readme.txt indicates there should be.
Thank you so much
it brings a tear to my eye.
Oh yeah ! thank you for this nice work !It works nice too under opera 9.10 (except a little crash of the plugin wrapper while closing opera).Does the wmode=”transparent” bug be planned in the roadmap ?
Cheers,Kudos to all who made this a reality, keep up the support for Linux et al.
Fantastic news! Thanks Adobe One thing though, on the main Adobe site the top nav gets displayed BELOW the flash movie. I’m using: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20060601 Firefox/2.0 (Ubuntu-edgy) [ Known WMODE issue. -Mike M. ]
Thank you (to) !!
You are great. Thank you so much for doing this so quickly.Now how about Photoshop
Thank you??? it’s a commercial product.
Thanks. Where’s the standalone player?
The RPM is also available from the repo at macromedia.mplug.org.
It has been a long way to get to this point. Congratulations to you and your team.
Ahhh! My mic still doesn’t work with FMS apps!Any tips? Something I can do.
Woo!More love for Linux.
Thank you very much for this work, and thanks for always think in us (linux users)
Mike, and everyone else who has been working on the Linux player, Congrats on shipping!
Well done m’lad – now go and have a bit of a lie down before you start the Shockwave player…. :-)Seriously though – well done, both for getting it done and for rising above the puerile comments left by some people.
Thank you for this release, you guys just made some penguin people very, very happy, like myself. :)Thanks!!!!
Finally! Thanks. Another barrier of using linux is down. Now linux users can see the web the way the rest of the world does..
Thank You, No thank You!Since I guess the flash player is behaving as badly on Linux as on Win.I rather keep the control myself whether to play the animations or not.
Where is the standalone player? Why is the tgz not versioned?
It doen’t work for me… I installed on my gentoo@amd64 and tried with 32bit version of Opera. Browser didn’t find the plugin.
This is great! Thanks!
Has adobe allowed this to be used on FreeBSD yet? [ This was resolved some months ago. But do you really care? -Mike M. ]
Thank you … and continue the great work in linux … the community is wathing and backing you
As always, packaged for ubuntu!http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/dists/edgy/3v1n0/
Nice – although the beta version worked really fine already.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!=)
Finally! I love you guys! :D, great job! keep it up!
Thank you! Thank you!
Works on Ubuntu Dapper (6.06) when installed from tar.gz. Didn’t work when converted RPM to DEB with alien.New users may have trouble locating /usr/lib/firefox etc.Thanks!
Much appreciated. Thanks!
Thank you very much!!
Very good news. Thanks.
Woo, excellent! Not that the past few betas haven’t been working perfectly for me, but it’s always nice to get the “final” version. Thanks a bunch for all your work on this!
Nice…(Finally…)I still hope that Adobe will have a better policy for releasing their products in the future.You want Flash to be a real cross-platform product, then do make sure that you release all versions for all operating systems simultaneously.(And perhaps try to find ways to support more alternative operating systems)
About fucking time…After the most preferable action, namely the total eradication of Flash, a good second would have been not to be treated as the lowlife Adobe obiously thinks Linux users are.May Adobe can get this right next time there is an upgrade of this piece of horrendous software.
Thank you very much!
Thnx!! – Great news.
Thanks it is working well. I tried to watch Flash video over at foxnews.com and I could hear it but not see it. [ Known issue related to WMODE/transparency. -Mike M. ]
Thanks Adobe! And good luck with the Apollo stuff for Linux in the future
Awesome. Thanks! Now keep it updated and in sync in the future.
Two days ago I explained to my wife why she had to reboot into windows to view some websites.Last night, I setup a virtualization of Windows in Linux – just to view Flash 8 content.Thanks for releasing Flash 9 player for Linux!
THANKS!Finally I will be able to experience the true life of the web with the nice beauty called Macromedia FlashPlayer!
Thanks. Now even us Linux users can go watch stupid videos of people hurting themselves.
thanks adobe, hope to see also a 64 bit build!
The standalone flash player is also available for this version too:http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.htmlI think it’d be helpful to package it individually, not just bundled with the “debugger” stuff, but it’s not that big so it’s ok
Thanks for the effort. Version 10 same time as Windoz release, thanks.Thanks again.
Thank you very very much. Your efforts are so much more appreciated than you might think. Adobe finally seems to realize that windows is not the only operating system out there, and for that, at least I am thankful.
Thank you so much!
Thanks a lot.
Oh man! Thank god! I kiss your knees, I no longer feel inferior! THANK YOU!!!!!
Umm.. where can I get the standalone flashplayer?
This version caused me to loose camera support. I lost microphone support when I installed the beta version. The only gain (and this is a big one) was the ability to read text again.
Thank you! There are thousands of users who will rejoice at this, even if they don’t speak up. Good work!
Thank you so much.I’ve been waiting ages for it.
Thank you!!! Now, How about a Photoshop CS3 or 4 client for Linux ?
It’s probably in some changelog somewhere, but what are the changes between the last beta and this release?
Too bad it doesn’t work.It crashes firefox every time I go to YouTube. [ File a bug if you hope to resolve this. -Mike M. ]
As the huge tool who posted to digg that it would never happen: congratulations on the release and many many apologies for my ignorance!If it makes any difference I’ve sworn off digg altogether.
Thanks for your hard work!
Thank you, this makes a lot of websites much more enjoyable!
Thank you guys :)you are the best
Installed on my Edgy laptop — works beautifully. THANKS!!
Thanks a lot. Both for creating the linux product and dealing with the linux community, which may appear as rabid dogs at times. :-)(But we mean well.)
It’s about time. This should have been released at the same time as the Microsoft Windows and Mac versions. As a result of delayed releases and no releases many sites fail to work. You can’t simply upgrade when no upgrade is available. Not to mention, when is it going to be possible to get Shockwave? Adobe’s failure to create cross-compatible formats is preventing use of these technologies. This is why I haven’t purchased Adobe software for creating rich content. You just can’t do it-without receiving complaints from users.
I had posted some instructions to the beta forum about how to get sound working correctly with KDE. Is there any way to access that message?
Thanks! Perhaps you’re already aware, but there is a problem in the way the adobe.com front page is rendered. The navigation menus open up behind the flash animation (Firefox v22.214.171.124/Ubuntu 6.10/Flash Player 9 Final). For a screenshot see: http://bp0.blogger.com/_9H_LrMl672s/Ra5aZVEfXMI/AAAAAAAAAAM/mIfEAgWytUU/s1600-h/Screenshot.pngOther than that, I’m enjoying the ability to use web sites that require v9 without having to reboot into Windows. Thanks again. [ Known WMODE issue. -Mike M. ]
Thank you for that release but… khm, khm, I’ll try anyway to avoid flash. While it’s not free software it will never become acceptable web standard. And you (Adobe) and we (users) will still have problems with different versions of OS not being supported or even different processors (like amd 64, where is the working binary?).
first thanks !, second could you change the apache mime.type to application/x-rpm for .rpm ?
Just installed the ‘final’ plugin, and I’m still having lockup issues when doing things like simultaneously watching a YouTube video and then going and checking my IMAP mailbox. It seems any semi-large network burst will lock the plugin up, only to have to close all Firefox tabs that have flash plugin running. Same thing as someone posted earlier about Beta 2 – it will play for a few seconds (without sound) then freeze. [ Formal bug report? -Mike M. ]
Any word on the standalone version? The readme mentions it but it’s nowhere to be found, either in the .tar.gz or the RPM version. The previous betas both shipped with a standalone player.
My company has been waiting for this before deploying any Flash 9 content on our corporate site. Linux is now too important to us not to have proper support. Around 70% of our systems are AMD64, and we regard a proper 64 bit version as crucial if Flash is to have a future on our corporate site. Some of our boxes don’t have any 32 bit libraries. For now though, at least we can roll out firefox with flash to ~450 desktops.Thanks for the efforts.
Thanks for this. We have a lot of desktop linux users by necessity and many of them would love to also have flash 9 installed.
Thanks for this release.But i still can’t use full-screen with flash videos.When i use the full-screen button all that happens is that the video get paused.I thought this should work in the stable release.And i couldn’t find the old forum for bugreports. (so where do you bugreport bugs if you find any now?)I saw in the release notes the full-screen mode isn’t supported :(But if i remember right you said it would work in the stable release.Accept for that it runs great so far and you made an good work.
THANKS!I hope you fixed the sound-clogging problem!
Rock on. Great job, Linux Flash Player Team!
Thanks!I’m a bit confused, though. The RPM contains/usr/lib/flash-plugin/LICENSE/usr/lib/flash-plugin/README/usr/lib/flash-plugin/homecleanup/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so/usr/lib/flash-plugin/setup/usr/share/doc/flash-plugin-126.96.36.199/readme.txt/usr/share/doc/flash-plugin-188.8.131.52/readme.txt says:To execute the Standalone Player, you will need to change the permissions of the file. An example of how you could do this on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 3 or RHEL 4 is:$: chmod u+x gflashplayerWhere do I find this gflashplayer executable?
Ummm… what happened to the standalone player? That was the version I used most
Though I’ve been using the beta for a while new, and it’s been stable for my use, it’s nice to finally have the final product in-hand.Nice job to all involved!
was a long time waiting, but is finally here, just thanks
For those who would like to use the standalone FP9 player for Linux, it’s available for download in the Adobe Flash Player Support Center, and is contained in the ‘debugger versions’ package for Linux. A little poking around on the Adobe website revealed this, but it’s not at all obvious from the regular user-oriented sections of the website.
thanks from all Italy…grazie da tutt’Italia…Francesco
hooray! thanks for all the work, I look forward to future versions!
Changelog from beta2 available? Any real drastic changes since then?
The “Go Get It” link connects to a page called Adobe Flash Player Download CenterWindows. How does Linux run a .exe file? [ When you access the download page from a Windows-based browser, it will offer you the Windows version. The download page is smart like that. -Mike M. ]
At about:plugins, the beta 2 displays “9.0 d78″ and the final version displays “9.0 r31″. Is that right ? [ Yes, believe it or not. -Mike M. ]
Is there a changelog between the last beta release and the final release?
Thank you so much !
Oh. My. God.WHAT A GOOD NEW ! Thanks !(but still not free software, so there’s room for improvement )
THANK YOU!!I am an opera user and I was waiting for this very much.I suppose it wont crash anymore
Awesome.Thanks for the hard work, and for listening to all of us bitch, whine, and moan, as well as listening to the feedback and suggestions.
Thank you, about time .
Congratulations! Just gave it a test, it works amazingly! Wonderful job!
Thank you very much
And if it’s still buggy, what do we do? I haven’t had any great luck with the ALSA sound in the two beta versions. [ You could always file a formal bug report. -Mike M. ]
THANK YOU GOD!BLESS ALL YOU CODERS
Just wanted to drop by and say thanks. I know you guys haven’t always had an easy job accomplishing Flash 9 for Linux, but thanks for hanging in there and making it a great product.-jc
Too bad it just causes firefox2 to crash. [ Does it bother you enough that you'll file a bug report so we can figure out why? -Mike M. ]
Have I been looking forward to this day? Yes – I have :)Thank you.
Thank you Adobe for taking the time to support the FOSS community, The betas have worked well so this final release is likely great too!
Great! Finally! Thank you! :)NOW Flash is multiplatform!
Some dummy videos work on Mandriva Linux 2007.0 ; installing from the rpm removed the previous distro bundled flash 7.[root@marge1 Desktop]# gunzip -c /root/oldflashplugins.tar.gz | tar tf -usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.sousr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplayer.xptusr/lib/netscape/plugins/libflashplayer.sousr/lib/netscape/plugins/flashplayer.xptGood job !
Thank you !
Thank You!Without really doing any serious testing it does seem a bit faster while watching videos on YouTube.And it’s really nice to witness the audio/video synchronization issues being resolved now.BTW, it’s sooo nice, for a change, to see Linux release cycles having higher version numbers than any other platform – it used to be the other way round. ;)Keep up the good work!
Great ! … Thanks you all !…
Thank you, Adobe!Less than three months from beta to final release! Isn’t it easy developing on Linux?Now… about that Shockwave…
Thanks a lot!!!
It crashes occasionally crashes for me but its good.
Thank you!Will there be a standalone flashplayer for linux?
Thanks a lot
Right.. Readme.txt .. *dumb*
Where to get the standalone version? The Readme.txt says:Installing the standalone player:o Unpack the tar.gz fileo To execute the standalone player,+ Double-click, or+ Enter in terminal: ./flashplayerBut I can’t find the flashplayer file
Thanks you!!!Abode Rocks
finally the sound isnt desyncedTHX!
At last! This day will be remembered. The day when Linux users finally aren’t behind Windows in viewing flash animations/movies.Good job!
Finally is right. I hate constantly being told I can’t view a website because of this stupid plugin.
Well done Adobe. This are good news for linux users.We’ll expect for more releases for this platform.Later.
Thank you very much!By the way, if anyone’s wondering about Flash in Opera. Opera have released a new version that doesn’t also die when the Flash plugin crashes.Thank you for removing one of the hurdles stopping Linux adoption: now on to world domination!
Would I prefer a free (as in libre) player?Sure.But…You guys have delivered on your promise, and that counts for something. I’ve already enjoyed the beta and am sure to enjoy the real deal.Thanks.Now, about that free player…
Hm… the EULA got spoiled in 9beta and didn’t really got fixed in release, no?So far what I read here (referenced from Readme.txt in tarball) prevents Linux distributions from shipping FP9, wonder if that’s really what Adobe wanted.
WooHoo! It’s already in the portage database!
Thanks! One thing I noticed, though is that the large banner at the top of Adobe.com loads on top of the navigation drop down menus above it. I am using Firefox 184.108.40.206 on Ubuntu Edgy Eft. Suggestions? [ Known WMODE issue. -Mike M. ]
ThAnK YoU!!!Seriously, this is great!CheersBen
you guys rock!!!thanks for the superb work on this
How does this release differ from beta 2?
Great thanks. And please, don’t just leave it for years now
Good job Mike! Now, how about full-screen support?
Oh! It was my browser’s settings to block pop-ups! Sweet!What do the naysayers have to say now?!
On behalf of all Linux users that haven’t said anything about this (yet), THANK YOU!
That’s all I am waiting for. A free/libre flash. Sorry Adobe, you were great in releasing pdf, but this doesn’t cut out.
Sweet. Thanks for releasing this. Does anyone know if there’s a Debian/Ubuntu package available for this somewhere yet?
Uhm… it doesn’t work onmy system. I do not have gtk2 installedand I will not install them.Bye, bye flash player
Good! Thank you!I hope this final version will crash my Web browsers less often when visiting Websites with embedded Flash content.I have a question though: Why does the installer not recognise Opera as a Web browser? It is one of the better browsers; so I think Adobe should support it on Linux.Have the Flash brand been completely taken over from Macromedia and turned into an Adobe brand now?
The nbc.com/Video bug where the player does not go to the actual video one wants to watch after the ad seems to still be there. Highly annoying.
What about a changelog from previous betas?
thx u very much, all the penguin team is great
Good news, thanks.
Flash plugin is now based on GTK+. Can it use the same theme (fonts, look etc.) as other GTK applications?
Wow! Before I even install it!Thank you!
Thank you for all your hard work! We really, really appreciate it.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
The new player crashes on my system (ubuntu breezy badger).
foxnews video still not working.http://www.foxnews.com/video/index.htmlthe audio comes but video is empty.Osho [ Known issue pertaining to WMODE/transparency. -Mike M. ]
Sweet, thank you!
Thanks Adobe! No longer do I have to feel like a second rate citizen of the internet!
It doesn’t work with oss / nforce :*(
thank you so very much!! ..a small step for adobe, but a leap for the mankind
I just installed and tested the new plugin to my plugins-folder of firefox (i only copied the .so-file), and it works great.Thank you to the Adobe developer team for the final version of the Flash plugin!Kind regards from Germany,Dirk
At last!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It’s released
Congrats on a job well done (and much needed)! Every major bug seems to have been ironed out. Now for an open source version that will help Adobe improve its product even more
Congrats on a job well done (and much needed)! Every major bug seems to have been ironed out.I won’t say it, but everybody knows what people expect of Adobe as the next step to improve Flash Player :DKeep up the good work!
Great, thank you!However, I still have a problem with flash videos sometimes freezing for a while, then jumping a few seconds forward while displaying some frames of the video and playing back the corresponding pieces of audio of the part that’s being skipped during the jump. This happens even though the video has been cached way beyond the point that is being watched, so this has nothing to do with the video streaming source being slow or anything.I’m running Ubuntu Edgy Eft (6.10) with Firefox 220.127.116.11.Is this a known problem? Sorry, couldn’t find the current location of the bug tracker, so I thought I’d just ask here. Anyway, that’s all the information I’m able to provide of the problem.
Just tested – automatic plugin installer in FF installs Flash 9!I have been using the second beta very successfully , so I am certain everything is OK with the plugin.Thank you for the great work.
Well done guys!
Thanks a lot
Many thanks for supporting the Linux community. Thank you!
Any changes between the last beta and this (final) version?
Great great great! THANK YOU! But where is the Projector version?..
Just 2 questionsa) is there any way to start a swf in fullscreen mode using the new flash 9 standalone player.b) any plans to make the new flash 9 standalone player work with gnome-screensaver instead of xscreensaver.
Unfortunately it crashes Firefox (both 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124) under Linux. First I thought it’s a Firefox issue, but since it happens w/ both versions I suspect it’s the plugin’s problem.
Oh, I found out where the standalone version is. But I think, it deserves a link here too: http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html.
nice one! cheers!
It doesn’t work with oss – nforce or is just me? [ Linux Flash Player 9 uses ALSA for audio output. -Mike M. ]
My first thing to do, open the Garfield comic strip which has a lot of flash stuff on it and used to lock up my browser. My first reaction after opening the page: “Wow! It works!” Thanks for this release.
At last! Power to the penguin !!!
thank You all very much for finally releasing it. the dark age of flash in linux is finally over.kudos to all that developed it. it really works great.
thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you.best news in ages… :Dand solaris gplv3
thanks ;)It feels a bit though like the end of an era ..ah well there ‘ll always be flash 10 i guess
I have the same problems I had on the BETA2, ie:ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1057:(snd_pcm_hw_open) open /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p failed: Device or resource busyAnd eventually the browser crashes when there are clips that require audio…Anyway my distro is quite old, so the problem may be an incompatible alsa library, there is a way to use OSS also on the new plugin?
No, thank you.
thanks team. thank you so much.
Where can I submit a bug report? Audio from flash just stopped working mid browsing. I have rebooted, reinstalled both firefox 2 amd latest flash 9. Others are still having issues with sound too.
Yes, thanks much!
Congratulations on a job well done.
Thanks for not ignoring us Linux users!
thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
cisco.netacad.net is not working with the flash 9? many people have problem with this, you know a solution ?
Thanks for fixing most of the annoying issues that plagued Flash 7 on Linux. I look forward to seeing the transparency issue resolved in the future…When Flash CS3 professional comes out later this year, I will buy it now, as I skipped Flash 8 due to no updated Linux client at the time of its release. Could you PLEASE put some kind of “includes unsupported Linux client” message at the minimum on the studio version?
I would like to add my thank you on this as well.One disappointment though is that a very annoying bug still exists in flash not respecting z-layer setting.See the charts in the new yahoo financeExample URL:http://finance.yahoo.com/charts#chart1:symbol=spy;range=1d;charttype=line;crosshair=on;logscale=on;source=undefined.The bottom of the drop down menu for the technical indicators is blocked (not visible) by the chart itself.I reported this several weeks ago and it wasn’t fixed. This seems to be is a Linux only version problem. [ Known WMODE bug. -Mike M. ]
Thanks Adobe i will buy your products
Did you notice how the link you provided just prints a message of “couldn’t find a web reader for your platform blah blah blah”?
Oh, and we would like the announced (in Readme.txt) standalone player too, instead of “bash: ./flashplayer: No such file or directory”.
Thanks,thanks and thanks for this adobe =DIs dreamweaver 9 going to be released for linux?that would be wonderfulThanks
Thanks for caring about linux
Thanks for caring about linuxSaludos desde Argentina
Thank you so much. Having an official flash player for linux is so important.Let’s youtube again :p
Brilliant … this download made my day … thanks so much for making Flash 9 available for us Linux users…
Mike M,Love your comments under people’s post very funny.Thank for the flash-player.Do you use Linux? And if so what distribution. [ Gentoo, in sickness and in health. -Mike M. ]
Mike M,Do you use Linux at home? and if so what distribution?Thanks so much for make flash-player 9. Plus I love your comments under people’s post. [ Gentoo, for better or worse. -Mike M. ]
Just to make sure this is a known issue.wmode: transparent does not work.
Thank you so much for all your hard work :-)You’ve instantly made the lives of millions of people much happier.Excellent and once again thanks!
Hello,Thanks alot!!A question, does it if I run Linux on an Intel based Mac?
Thanks for putting this out. It works pretty well. My only problem is really high CPU usage (like 95-100%) when watching any flash video. Is anyone else seeing this issue? Should I file a formal bug report? I’m running Xubuntu Edgy/Firefox 2/Flash 9,0,31,0
Finally you made it… Thanks!
Thank you for your great work first. However, it exists a serious conflict between flash 9 and gcin ( gcin is a popular Chinese input method used in Taiwan ) that makes firefox prone to hang. Could it be fixed ?
ubuntu edgy firefox + flash 9 = multiple crashes throughout the day. still getting lagging audio as well. :/
Great, many thanks
Great, many thanks !!
Thanks for the release, but I’m sad to say that it seems a bit unstable. I had it installed for two days and have probably had about 20 crashes. Had to revert back to Flash 7, which is rock solid.
Just another thank you !!!!
Congrats on the full version!Now if only the standalone would accept left-clicks from my mouse, I’d be truly ecstatic.In the 1st beta it works, but its been broke in the later versions. It acts like when you click something then move the mouse off of it before releasing, because it activates the buttons, just won’t do anything, even in the settings…
I’ll use it when its libre.I’ll still thank *YOU* for working hard, but I’ll thank adobe when its libre, if it ever is.
Is there a proper bug-report form somewhere online? (The forum seem pretty desolate.) I know you don’t want bug reports here, but on Firefox 1.5.x and now 2.0.1, and on Mozilla the new plugin (like the beta before it), produces a segfault every time (it works for a few seconds usually then bang). I would like to be able to supply full details in the appropriate place.
At last! Good job, thanks!
THANK YOU. thank you. THANK YOU.
This is crap. Heavy, bloated, full of flaws and available only for x86. Stop calling this hard work, this is garbage. Adobe couldn’t care less about their customers. Please collaborate with Gnash, development is too slow and it is very important to free us from this vendor lock.http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/
The player works awesomely!I am running a 64-bit Gentoo machine and using the nswrapperplugin. The results have been amazing! I can even say it works better than its 32-bit Windows counterpart. There have been no lockups, videos play smoothly, and the audio stays in sync. Once again, very nice job and thank you.
“Your architecture (\x86_64\) is not supported…”And no option to just install the 32-bit player. :’-(
Thanks, I just upgraded after having problems with a flash video using a beta version and all problems disappeared.
The standalone player doesn’t work. Mouse clicks inside the flash area aren’t registered.
Now you can start Photoshop on Linux…;)Thx
Long awaited. And although i have nothing more to add, I like to lengthen this list of comments. Which Mr. B Gates is bound to check some day .. he he he he. Take that you fear mongering piece of crap seller.

Thank you!!:)Now make shockwave for linux
thanks, and congratulations to ADOBE, Mike and his team for this !
Thanks!!, now I can watch fugly advertisements on my laptop!
Frankly this still seems beta to meThis flash game makes my firefox crash for example.Is anyone still working on this? [ Sure, a few of us. Maybe file a formal bug report so we can track this properly? -Mike M. ]
Still not ready for me.Nspluginviewer eats ressources like crazy, konqueror is slow as hell. Plus from times to times I have to kill it to get audio from Amarok, so I’m wondering about the ALSA integration here.
where can we submit bug reports? in all seriousness, my browser crashes so much since i’ve installed the flash 9 plugin… it’s completely unusable – reverted to flash 7 plugin.w/firefox 126.96.36.199 and firefox 188.8.131.52 on slackware 10.2, browser will consistently crash if I go to yahoo.com and then click ‘login’ link… for starters.
The argentine ubuntu comunity thanks you Penguin for your team’s hard work in this. Thank you, Danke! Grazie! GRACIAS!!
If Jason (“Where can we submit bug reports .. ) comes back – I asked the same question without any reply so far, and have therefore posted in detail on the Forum: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/categories.cfm?catid=184&forumid=44I suspect it is the same problem. Please look at my post there and maybe add to it. We need to build up momentum to get this fixed.
THANK YOU VERY MUNCH!!!!
Thank you for your hard work!!
2 days ago I was really excited – now having installed it I regret it since it’s so buggy firefox is crashing left and right !!!!!!crashes are happening in firefox 1.5.x and 2.0.x.I’m quite disappointed.
for anyone wanting to revert, link to older flash 7.http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_7_linux.tar.gz
problems with crashing myself on Firefox 184.108.40.206. Decided to delete the plugin. Going to see about finding an open source one. :/
I had sound with beta 2, but not with this final release :(Surely I will try to downgrade to beta 2
ahh, many many many thanks!
Gracias.Don’t you guess? Thank you.
Thanks for caring about linux!
Thank you, at last.
Ahhh… the wonderful feeling of… something. Flash 9 in Konqueror on Gentoo?Thank you Adobe, and Mike, and anyone else, for taking the time, and [I hope] the money, to do a Flash client for Linux.It’s good to know that Adobe is still a center of Technical Excellence, judging from the quality of this player. And I bet it’s nice to see so many thank you notes.
That link takes me to a d/l for Flash 7… so confused. What am I doing wrong?
What happened to the download? I’m just getting a page to download FP7 now.
That’s funny, every link to FP9 that Adobe gives all goes to flash player 7, not 9. Am I missing something? This is driving me crazy. Why would you create a link that says 9 which really goes to 7?
The Flashplayer 9 download link (http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer/) now offers me version 7.0.69 .. has version 9 final been pulled back ?
It’s not able to download current version (220.127.116.11). Why?
When I click the link it tries to make me download flash 7 what is going on
thanks a lot, had quite a few crashes with the betas but not 1 with the final version thanks again
Whow, that must have been buggy since now I just go to 7,0,69,0 if I click on get flash player on the adobe.com website.The beta ran fine here btw. Not that I visit that much flash sites.
link at:http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer/seems to want me to download flashplayer 7 rather than 9http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_7_linux.tar.gzyou can get around this by copying the url and changing the 7 to a 9, but shouldn’t this be linking to the correct thing?
Thanks!Works perfectly (sound, no system thrashing as with the last beta). Ubuntu Dapper Drake AMD64.
Thank you very much
Thanks Nick, it helps when you’re a web developer by trade
Thank you very much.
gcin 1.3.3 and later can work smoothly with flash9.
Do I have to be root to make the flash player system-wide for all users when installing?[ Generally, yes. Or your account needs to have access to write to the directory where the system-wide file lives. -Mike M. ]
Linux is a good OS just to mess around with but i would’nt use on a day to day basis for exactly this reason – not much is compatible with it! If more was compatible with it then i would probably use it cos its free but there isnt so i dont, but even with that issue at hand it still almost beats windows! doesnt beat mac though – mac rocks.
You guys rock, thanks for the hard work!!!
THANK YOU ADOBE FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS!!!
good work and good OS !! thx
I’m starving without a Flash Player for PPC Linux. Please help! (and yes, I have already used the Adobe “Wish Form”)
Thanks,I am using Adobe flash player 9 without any problem with Opera and Mozilla browser.I am sure that there are a lot of linux lovers like me waiting for Adobe to release Flash development enviorment for Linux OS. We are ready to pay for it and don’t want it be open source.Again, good work and thanks for your good efforts.
ERROR: Opera is not supported.:) I’m, blyac’(ru only), happy
ERROR: Opera is not supportedLOL?
Plans for a AMD64 Linux version?
Thank you, best regards from an italian penguin!
It’s great to find a big-time software company that supports Linux. Thanks Macromedia/Adobe! I’m so pleased that the community in general has adopted flash to the degree it has. It makes for watching Internet video content much less of a pain for Linux users like me
I have AMD 64 Dual Core and when I start the installer It have this error:ERROR: Your architecture, \’x86_64\’, is not supported by theAdobe Flash Player installer.Why? No is it plugin for64 Arquitectures?
Opera is not supported but it works better than Mozilla — slightly. Anyone have this problem? In Opera 9 the flash player just fails completely after a minute (max), but in Mozilla any Flash page crashes the whole browser.
I followed the directions as root and installed flash9. It works fine when I run as root, but when I run as a user, it brings up “download plugin” when I go to a url.It is already installed. Why doesn’t it know that?If I try to download the plugin as a user, it says “no plugins were installed. adobe flash player failed Manual install”.If I click on manual install, I just get to the download page where I got it from already.I am running slackware lionux with kernel 2.;6.21.3Luther Woodrum
Thanks Adobe. I’ve noticed a move towards the open community lately, and really just want to let you know that this is not going un-noticed… ie, lots of respect to you guys for doing this, and remembering that the open community is a huge part of the computing world. It’s good to get their business as well! So, thanks once again. Don’t let up! This kind of thing is what will help to make computing fun and exciting again, with a positive and exciting future. It really needs to move from corporate and back to community. That’s what computing does, and the internet has shown this to be true.
Interesting workaround for crashes… I’ve found that if I start up firefox, and go directly to youtube and get ready to watch a video… and then leave that tab open and carry on with the rest of my web browsing as usual, firefox & flash 9 doesn’t crash.Anything else… for lack of a better description… when firefox is ‘surprised’ by flash… it will crash very regularly.This applies to all of the Flash 9 versions I have tried… official releases and betas… sounds silly, but the ‘youtube’ fix lets firefox and flash 9 run for hours without a crash…
While Flash9 is sweet (thanks) the limitation for recording sound only from the microphone makes it unusable for a great number of Linux users. While all other programs are able to record sound (i.e. Skype, Ekiga), Flash can’t., at least not with my Soundblaster Live card. I wonder why? Any work around you could think of?
Any idea if there will be a minor update to try and compensate for the WMODE issue? I hate having to switch to Konq. to watch foxnews.com videos!
"Use root window" seems to be broken in standalone player.> flashplayer -root test.swf(flashplayer:20810): Gdk-WARNING **: GdkWindow 0x260004a unexpectedly destroyedSegmentation Fault [ The root window thing was an unsupported feature all along that will go away for good in the upcoming release. -Mike M. ]
Well, I tried it on Firefox 2, 3 and even Seamonkey. It crashes when I try to play flash video. Close but no cigar. I had to remove it since I can’t tolerate several browser crashes a day. I will check back in a year to try out Flash 10.
Is there nightly build location to download beta versions of the Linux Flash player?There is a problem with Firefox and Flash using very high cpu usage when watching full screen movies. I’ve tried the latest 9,0,115,0 version and reverted back to 9,0,48,0 to no avail. Turning off hardware acceleration didn’t help either.
It’s kind of a shame about the root window feature being deleted; I think this makes flashplayer incapable of use as an xscreensaver module, described here: http://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/faq.html#mpeg
Well, yes, thanks for releasing into GNUlinux, but… will you release a less buggy Flash plugin soon? Many sites are loosing customers because of it, apart of 64b GNUlinux users…
Will there be a fix for the WMODE issue anytime soon? Is this something that needs to be updated only in Flash, or also in Firefox?
Very good, still no 64 bit support. I have everything running 64bit but browser 32 because of this.Thank you Adobe! Great
