Sorry to be such a nuisance. I have both packages
installed from repo. Untarred the gz from the above
link and the plugin.so file is the same size as the
one in my /usr/lib/firefox/plugins dir. Diff of the
/tmp/libflashplayer.so and the one in
/usr/lib/firefox/plugins show no difference. When I go
to a site with flash content and do flash conf or
setup it shows flash7 not flash9. In one of replies in
the past, someone on the list said I had to setup a
link in /etc/alternatives for flash to work. I have
that symlink in /etc/alternatives for flash7 but
nothing for flash9. These are some of the issues I
have in trying to setup flash9-plugin. The
libflashplayer.so is in the firefox plugin dir but not
in the mozilla plugin dir(and no symlink). I'm using a
global setup having rmed all references to plugins and
mplayerplug-in from $HOME trying to simplify my setup.
I am not all that familiar with the ways of linux
setup. Could you please offer some suggestion on how
to setup flashplugin-nonfree as I've read the readme
text from the untarred file an as far as I see it
should work for a global(root) setup. I have no idea
when or why one must use /etc/alternatives for setup.
Does flashplugin-nonfree show up in your about.plugins
if you use mozilla browser?
Do you have a symlnk in /etc/alternatives for
flashplugin-nonfree? Is one needed?
I assume the answer is yes to the question "Do I need
a symlnk for libflashplayer.so in
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ to the
/usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so file."
Do I need to copy 
to somewhere in my $HOME dir to get it to show and
Would appreciate your answer/comment on each question
to satisfy my ignorance of linux ways. 
Again I apologize for being so persistent but these
are to answers I need to understand the situation.
