Adobe Flash Player for Linux 9.0.115

Archlinux faild to Install flashplayer-installer!

After download and extracting the install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz I was trying to Install it.

#su
password:
#sh ./flashplayer-installer

When the Installer ask me where to Install the flash player I give the direction

/opt/mozilla/lib/plugins

but it looks like it doesn't work.
Error not a valid direction.

Anybody have any Idea?

I specified /opt/mozilla/lib/firefox and the installer worked just fine. BBC has just released the flash version of iPlayer and 9.0.115 does full screen

Huh, I was not aware that there was a newer version out for flash player. I'll have to try it out and see what happens :-)

Cheers
