ubuntu 8.04 hardy heron x86_64, firefox 3 and flash plugin

Posted by lazybit on June 4, 2008

I recently installed a fresh copy of Kubuntu 8.04 with KDE4. Quite nice I must say.

I always had trouble installing flash and firefox on my 64bit distros, but this time it was really painless.

sudo apt-get install nspluginwrapper flashplugin-nonfree lib32nss-mdns

That’s it. I tried gnash but it would not work. Hopefully in some future release.

Thank’s to Andy for providing a nice howto.

Update: Also read the post on Flash 10 if you’re interested

  1. Nice to know – thanks for the info

  2. Firefox on Ubuntu has a tendency to not display Flash properly, particularly with multiple instances of FF and Flash. Have you overcome this problem?

    What do you mean. I didn’t find any problems regarding playback or playback in multiple instances. Could you be more precise? Can I reproduce this problem somehow?

    THANKS! I was looking for this. I was trying to do it by myself but the flash installer was telling me the x86_64 architecture wasn’t supported. 😦
