Installing Flash Player in Arch Linux

Flash is often used on the web in form of videos, games & other flash based web applications. Love it or hate it but you can’t escape it atleast for now.Thus it becomes necessary to install flash plugin on your system in order to make sure all those flash content work flawlessly in your web browser. Here I’ll guide you to install flash plugin on your Arch Linux system(32 Bit & 64 Bit).

First, you’ll need to edit the pacman configuration file of Arch Linux i.e. ‘/etc/pacman.conf’. This can be done by issuing following at the shell;

vi /etc/pacman.conf

Once the file is loaded in the shell, scroll down & find the repository section. Under repository section enable the ‘Multilib’ repository by deleting the ‘#’ symbol from front of it. This is known as uncommenting. It should look like this after uncommenting.

[multilib] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

After the above is done, issue the following command to refresh & sync the enabled repositories.

# pacman -Syu

Now that we have repositories refreshed, its time to install the flashplayer like any other software using pacman. For that issue,

# pacman -S flashplayer

Now the 32 bit flashplayer is installed on your system. Verify it by typing ‘about:plugins’ in address bar of Mozilla Firefox. Try loading a youtube video or any flash site and it should work without any issues.

I will follow this post with installing softwares on Redhat, installing from source etc.

I love photography. I love to shoot different genres of photography but my favourite is ‘Tabletop Photography’. Under tabletop photography one is required to photograph an object on a table as the name suggest. Though it sounds a piece of cake its not so easy to do considering you’ve to visualise a lot of things beforehand. Sometimes you may get a perfect picture you want within a few seconds & at times you may end up waiting for hours. I like the challenging nature of tabletop photography & that’s the reason why I love tabletop photography. Recently I shot a tabletop photograph to express my love for the badminton sport. Here is an account of the same which will help you to begin with tabletop photography. I advise to begin with minimal equipment & then jump on to complicated setups. If you’ve a good vision then the possibilities in tabletop(or for the matter any type) photography are virtually endless.
