Getting Adobe Flash Player to work in Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

I've been trying to get Adobe Flash Player to work on my new workstation. It's running the 64-bit version of Ubuntu 9.04 and Firefox 3. The normal 32-bit version of Flash Player doesn't quite work in 64-bit versions of Linux. Adobe has released an alpha version of 64-bit Flash Player 10 for Linux, but I did not have any luck getting it to work.

Finally found this recent blog post by voodoologic with a shell script he modified to install the player properly:

Worked like a charm!

Hopefully, Adobe's 64-bit version goes mainstream soon.

(Thanks to voodoologic...I'd comment on your original post, but it requires a Google account.)
