Adobe Really Does Love Us!

In addition to this week’s announcement about a particularly awesome little beta release of Flash 9 Update, which features all sorts of treats such as native GTK support and fullscreen use, Adobe has gone one step further in easing adoption of Flash on Linux: particularly for PCLinuxOS, openSUSE, and Fedora users.

As of yesterday, Adobe now sports its own, maintained YUM repository for Flash. 😀

In order to install Flash, just run the following:

wget http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-1.0-0.noarch.rpm -O ~/adobe-release-1.0-0.noarch.rpm
su -c "rpm -Uvh adobe-release-1.0-0.noarch.rpm" root
su -c "yum install -y flash-plugin" root

Remember to restart any web browsers after installing Flash!
