Kali Linux comes with Iceweasel (Firefox) as an installed browser. For some reason, the producers of Kali Linux missed one thing, the vital Adobe Flash Player plugin. This simple tutorial will show you how to get Adobe Flash Player in Kali Linux’s Iceweasel.
Start Kali, login to root, open Iceweasel, and go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/.
When Adobe.com opens, it should already have detected what version you need (Mine is Linux 64-bit Firefox). So all you need to do is click on the drop down menu that says Select version to download… and select .tar.gz for other Linux from the list.
Now hit the download button
The download window will now open, and Iceweasel will ask you want you want it to do with the file, select Save file… and hit OK.
If Firefox asks you where to save the file too, select the root folder and hit OK.
When it has finished downloading, close Iceweasel.
Open a Terminal, type ls and hit Enter. Kali will then display all the folders/files in your root folder, the adobe flash player .tar.gz folder should be among them.
Now that we know the name of the Adobe Flash Player folder, we need to unzip it. Start by copying the name of the Adobe Flash Player folder.
Now type tar –xf and paste the name of the Adobe Flash Player folder. See example below:
Example: tar –xf install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
The name of your Adobe Flash Player folder might be different then mine, so don’t try to copy mine!
The complete command should look similar to this photo:
Kali should take a couple of seconds to unzip the folder. After it’s complete type this command: mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ and hit Enter.
Kali linux will do the rest, Adobe Flash Player has now been installed! To test your Flash installation, go to this URL in Iceweasel: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/, if you see the little flash animation, then you are good to go! You can also delete all the Flash Player folders/files in your root folder, they’re not important.
