A note on installing flash player in Ubuntu

If you are using 'root user' during the installation of Linux Debugger and Standalone Players for Flash Developers, it will prompt an message to locate the installation path of Mozilla. Using whereis command to locate the mozilla folder, for my case, the path /usr/lib/mozilla will be shown. Unfortunately the installation wizard will complain that particular path was invalid. According to the suggestion from Ubuntu forum, giving this path /usr/lib/firefox- will be more accurate.

If the user wasn't a 'root user' during the installation, the installation will proceed just as normal. The destination of the installation files will locate at /home//.mozilla/plugins.
