I am using x64 edition. So, I am unable to install it directly by installing its package. Is there any alternate method made to install it on 64 bit editions?

Thank You

Put your question to Mr. and Mrs. Google. 3 of the things they came up with:

I trust one will work for you!

Adobe Labs has a 64 bit version out in alpha:

The only way I could get flash to be stable on 64 bit jaunty was to follow this (http://www.myscienceisbetter.info/install-adobe-flash-player-10-on-ubuntu-64bit.html) tutorial. has worked without a problem ever since.

Hello all,

I have used Ubuntuzilla for FF 3.5. No problem there.

I would like to try this for Flash player:

http://www.myscienceisbetter.info/install-native-64bit-flash-player-10-on-linux.html

But I don't know where to begin.

Do I just grab the Ubuntu script on the bottom of the page, and paste it in the terminal?

I have also tried this video, but it didn't work for me.

I am using firefox 3.0.13 for now. I'm wondering if I should just wait for Ubuntu 9.10? Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave

ubuntuzilla installs the official mozilla build, which is 32bit, so you have to use 32bit flash to go with it. see the ubuntuzilla faq for details.
