I’ve already written about installing Flash player 10 under 32 bit version. But, couple of our readers asked about installing Flash player 10 final version under Ubuntu Linux 64 bit edition. This small post will cover flash 10 Ubuntu Linux 64 bit installation.
Update [Oct-03-2009]: Please use this updated script for Ubuntu Linux 9.04 or above.
Alejandro has published a shell script to automate entire process. Open terminal and type the following command to install Flash 10 under 64 bit edition (please exit any browsers you may have running):
$ wget http://queleimporta.com/downloads/flash10_en.sh
$ sudo bash ./flash10_en.sh
Fire a Firefox and type about:plugins to verify installation:
Alternatively, visit Youtube to see flash videos.
