If you’re using an x86_64 architecture of Fedora, and having problems with Flash player installation for Firefox, follow this quick tutorial.
1. (This is optional) If you’ve tried installing Flash on your system, remove it first. Include nspluginwrapper too.
[root@hostname username]# yum erase flash-plugin nspluginwrapper*
2a. Install the rpm package for 64-bit plugin created by Leigh Scott.
[root@hostname username]# rpm -Uvh http://www.linux-ati-drivers.homecall.co.uk/flash.x86_64/flash-release-1-2.noarch.rpm
2b. You may also download the rpm package and install it from your downloaded directory. Assuming that the file is in your Downloads folder:
[root@hostname username]# rpm -Uvh /home/username/Downloads/flash-release-1-2.noarch.rpm
3. Install the plugin using yum.
[root@hostname username]# yum install flash-plugin
Check if Flash player is installed. This rpm works for Firefox and Opera and from Fedora 12 or newer.

doodle, flash, free, github, google, macek, pacman, swf
In case you didn’t know or you weren’t able to see it, Google rolled out the PacMan doodle to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the game’s release last Saturday, May 22. However, this doodle is different from the others – it’s interactive and playable. And yes, it’s now available for download and may be played offline.
The game may be downloaded from macek’s github page. Just click the “Download Source” button found on the upper right portion of the page. Extract the downloaded zip file and open the “index.html” document using your browser.
Sound issue is also resolved for the offline version. According to macek, you have to make flash trust your local SWF file. To do this, you must add the directory of your unzipped Google PacMan to the allow list using the Flash Control Panel.
On the Flash Control Panel:
1. Click “Edit Locations”.
2. Click “Add Location”.
3. Browse for your unzipped Google PacMan directory.
4. Click “Confirm”.

adobe, flash, shockwave, The Matrix, xiao xiao
Click this link to view the swf file: Xiao Xiao Movie 3. It takes a while to download depending on your bandwidth. It’s a 1+MB file. Make sure your browser supports shockwave files. You may download the player from the Adobe website and install it for your browser. I think you might also be given an option to download the file (the animation). If not, right click on the link and select “Save target as…” (for Internet Explorer) or “Save link as…” (for Firefox). Just make sure you have a Flash player installed in your system. And finally, you may also view or download Xiao Xiao games and movies from the Xiao Xiao website.
