Add Adobe Flash to Firefox on Fedora 17

So you want to get Adobe Flash working on Firefox in Fedora 17? Here is a quick guide to doing it. Obviously you need root privileges to install the packages.

First you need to install the appropriate repository (32-bit or 64-bit) for the Adobe RPM packages:

# Adobe 32-bit x86 repository
rpm -ivh
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

# Adobe 64-bit x86_64 repository
rpm -ivh
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

If you cannot download these RPMs, check at Adobe for the latest version and download that.

Then run yum to install the following packages:

yum check-update
yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl

That is it. Restart Firefox and Adobe Flash should be working.
