I've been trying to install both these features and it does not work.
For Java i get this error message:Could not display desktop/jre-6ull-linux-x64.bin (there is no application installed for this type).

And for the flash player i only get read me files and thats it.

You could always install this package:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

What version of Ubuntu are you using? Try the following and see if you get different results:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Ok when i enter either of them i get this:

E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13 Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

And as far as i know im currently using version 8.10

Do you have Synaptic or Add/Remove programs open?

Make sure you don't have another instance of Synaptic running.

Do you have any other Synpatic programs open (Synpatic Package Magager, Add/Remove)

You weren't supposed to even enter that as a command, I was just pointing out you have Synaptic running somewhere. You need to close Synaptic, then install the package I told you to install.

It should most likely be minimized on your bar, it also appears you have Update manager running.

Ok so here do the following, enter the following command:

ps -A
Look for Synaptic in that list, there should be a process ID before the process name, so for example last time the process ID was 7020 for Synaptic, so it might be different now, so look through the list for Synaptic, once you find it, and the process ID, run the following command:

sudo kill 7020
I'm just assuming Synaptic's process ID is 7020, but you get the point.

Regardless, you have 64bit Ubuntu installed. The 64 bit flash plugin (or at least one that works) isn't in the repo's, so you don't need to worry about the package management system to install it. Go to http://labs.adobe.com to get flash player 10 for 64bit linux.

For java... this is slightly more complicated. If you just need to run java programs on your computer, the package to install is 'sun-java6-jre', or 'sun-java6-jdk' if you want to program in java. If you need the web browser plugin (for java applets online, for example), then you need the 64bit browser plugin. It is only available in the very latest java package from sun, so if you need this post back for further instructions.

Oh... and I would strongly recommend that you do NOT install the 'ubuntu-restricted-extras' package. This will install the 32bit java and flash plugins with a plugin wrapper that works really poorly. If you want the plugins, get the 64bit versions, even though the install is harder. It will make life much easier in the long run.

What do you want java installed for... apps like frostwire, or applets online?

So download the latest version from Java right here: http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp. My instructions are going to assume you're going to save it to your desktop and the file name is "java.bin". So what you want to do is navigate to the Terminal and run these commands:

cd ~/Desktop
chmod +x java.bin
sudo mv java.bin /opt
cd /opt
sudo ./java.bin

Once you've done that it will start unzipping the files in the /opt directory, there should be a new directory, and not sure what it would be called, but navigate to it:

cd jre_directory/bin
sudo ln -s /opt/jre_directory/bin/java /usr/local/bin/java
There's also instructions on Java's website if you don't understand mine, but if you followed mine, that should get Java up and running.

Ok when i try to install the flash player and when i try to extract it i keep getting these error messages

When i try to extract the files i get this message:
Could not open the file kmess-1.5.1.x86.package using the Western (ISO-8859-15) character coding.

or

Could not open the file kmess-1.5.1.x86.package using the Unicode (UTF-8) character coding.

Would strongly recommend this version (for 64bit plugin), not the default one java.com will give you: http://www.java.net/download/jdk6/6u12/promoted/b03/binaries/jre-6u12-ea-bin-b03-linux-amd64-22_dec_2008.bin

What is a synaptic? and how do i find it?

*Im still new to ubuntu.
Synaptic is the type of Package manager (software store) that Ubuntu uses. It can be accessed several ways:
Menus: Applications>Add/Remove or System>Administration>Synaptic Package Mangager
Some other ways it may be open: Update Manager via orange star icon on top bar near clock (or menu: System>Administration>Update Manager

As far as getting flash installed, the easiest way I do it every time, is I go to a website that has flash content (Ex: hulu.com (http://www.hulu.com)) and a bar appears at the top of the webpage w/ a button to install missing plugins. I click on that, select Adobe/Flash (1st one on list), click install/yes/ok a few times, close and reopen firefox and go the website again: Voila! I have flash.
- EDIT: Didn't realize you were running 64-bit, prolly best to follow other suggestions on this thread for 64-bit

Some useful links regarding Ubuntu Package Management, Flash and Java:
Synaptic (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto)
Flash (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash) (also Restricted Formats (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats) is a good read)
Java (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java)

In general, Ubuntu Official Documentation Pages (https://help.ubuntu.com/) are a good first step before jumping to the Forums for general questions. But, please don't hesitate to post here, especially if you can't find the answer in on the Help pages.

Ok

None of these downloads are not working properly, i am downloading the links that you guys are providing and when it's done i got to launch application and press ok and it goes onto the desktop.And when i try to open to file it says"could not display jre-6ul...3-linux-amd64-22_dec_2008.bin"
"the location is not a folder"

I've tried to download all other files from the java website and i keep getting the same thing.

You can't click to launch the files. You must use the CLI to install them. Follow the steps Codename listed above (note that he/she called his file java.bin, you should substitute the name of your file, which will certainly be different).

EDIT: Direct link to flash player: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-10.0.d21.1.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz

EDIT2: Extract the flash file, and move it to the folder /home/<your username>/.mozilla/plugins. Then restart firefox, and flash should work.

Ok now the flash player is up and running, now Java is the only thing left and im trying my best to find multiple ways in getting it but nothing seems to work.

Ok, that is progress, good to see.

So how is the java install going? Are you getting error messages?

So download the latest version from Java right here: http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp. My instructions are going to assume you're going to save it to your desktop and the file name is "java.bin". So what you want to do is navigate to the Terminal and run these commands:

cd ~/Desktop
chmod +x java.bin
sudo mv java.bin /opt
cd /opt
sudo ./java.bin

Once you've done that it will start unzipping the files in the /opt directory, there should be a new directory, and not sure what it would be called, but navigate to it:

cd jre_directory/bin
sudo ln -s /opt/jre_directory/bin/java /usr/local/bin/java
There's also instructions on Java's website if you don't understand mine, but if you followed mine, that should get Java up and running.

I used your instructions and Frostwire now works for me but it seems that I am still using update 10 when I am using firefox. Was wondering how to change this?
