How to Install Adobe Flash Player 64-bit Plugin in Ubuntu 10.04/10.10 Maverick Meerkat 8


Adobe has just released Flash Player for 64-bit/amd64 operating systems codenamed ‘Square’ which includes full support for Windows, Mac and Linux systems, including Ubuntu. Because this is a preview version, you’ll have to uninstall it to install the stable version later in the future. There’s not a direct upgrade from the preview release to the stable version.

 

Getting started:

 

To get started, download Adobe Flash Player 64-bit from here.

 

flash_player_64

 

After saving the file, right-click it and select ‘Extract Here’

 

flash_player_64_1

 

After extracting the file, right-click it and select ‘Copy’.

 

flash_player_64_2

 

Then press Alt-F2 on your keyboard and type the command below and click Run:

gksu nautilus /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/

flash_player_64_4

 

Paste it in here and save. If there’s one already in there, back it up before replacing it.

 

flash_player_64_3

 

 

Enjoy!

 

flash_player_64_5

 

 

If you don’t see /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer, try /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/

 

Thanks for reading and please come back soon.
