Hi,

I'm trying to reinstall flash. I got this message after going through all the installation steps in terminal:

Error: Your architecture, \'x86_64\' is not supported by the Adobe Flash Player installer.

How can I fix this?

Are you trying to install Adobe flash player from the tar.gz package downloaded from their site? Adobe flash is 32 bit only, and there is no way you can fix it, follow this guide instead http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=772490.

Thanks very much!!:) I found a fix a little while ago at this thread. http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=5587712&postcount=472.

My only problem now is that I can't hear audio. I think it's because of a plug-in I installed earlier. I'm trying to find it so I can delete it.

You'll become rather popular with Adobe flashx64 native support fix, however, having looked, I found no mention of it.

Thanks, Mike Whatever. I think you're right. I'm going to try the link you recommended. I'm right back where I started from. Can't play any flash videos on YouTube. YouTube tells me I have to download flash again. Argh.:mad:

Yeah - my Flash is working again. I installed Flash using the link for Gusty-Hardy (Ubuntu 7.10 and Ubuntu 8.04 versions) users here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=476924.

I also downgraded to Firefox 2 first by going to System/Synaptic Package Manager and searching Firefox-3. I deleted anything from the results with a green square next to it (aka anything installed) and deleted it. Then, I went to Add/Remove programs, searched for Firefox-2 and installed it.
