Installing 64-bit Flash Plugin in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Linux
Now that I have already fixed my problem with my SATA HD in Ubuntu Linux 10.04 Lucid Lynx, I then searched google if there is a 64bit version of the Adobe Flash 10 plugin.
A week ago, when I first installed in my PC an Ubuntu Linux 8.04 Hardy Heron, I found this blog post on how to make flash work in a 64-bit Firefox browser - of course in a 64-bit Ubuntu Linux. I tried it and although I have encountered a minor problem with the script and made a minor modification, but the script work as expected!
The problem of the script was that path to the getlibs-all debian package (http://www.boundlesssupremacy.com/Cappy/getlibs/getlibs-all.deb) does not exist anymore. I replaced it with http://frozenfox.freehostia.com/cappy/getlibs-all.deb. And thats the only modification I made and the rest of the script worked well.
But it is worth noting that this method of is only a work-around on how to make the 32-bit Flash 10 plugin run in a 64-bit Ubuntu Linux.
This time, I found a new script that will download the 64-bit version of Flash 10 plugin and install it in my 64-bit Ubuntu Linux 10.04. You can download this script at the Ubuntu Forums site. I tried it just recently and it run smoothly.
So now if you have come into my site looking for ways to make Flash plugin work in your 64-bit Ubuntu machine, you can check those links above and decide which path you would like to choose: (1) make 32-bit Flash work in your 64-bit Ubuntu machine or (2) install the right Flash version that suites the architecture of your machine.
Either way, from my experience, you should get a working Flash plugin in your browser.
