    1st i'm posting this here as we don't seem to have a 'help' area.

    i'm trying to get the linux version of flash player projector 11.2 32 bit to run in debian 8.3 AMD64.
    i've downloaded it, and tried running it from my home folder. clicking it (KDE plasma) does nothing.
    tried installing libc6-i386, but it still doesn't seem to open.

    can some linux guru help a brother out?
    thanks

    Dude, check the version numbers. You're trying to use a version of Flash that's 10 full versions behind the current release. Yeah, there's no newer version for Linux, but that's because Adobe dropped Linux support years ago. Unless there's some particular reason that you need Flash 11, I recommend you just install Wine and use the Windows version. That what I do when I bother with Flash on my Fedora laptop.
