    How to install flash player for 64-bit Ubuntu 10.04

    Hi everyone

    I'm a begginner,new at the forum and I'm trying Ubuntu for the first time.
    I did install Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit at my Dell Inspiron 1721 laptop.
    Well I did some installations via Ubuntu software center only, and I'm not that familiar with the terminal.
    Hope you guys can help me with that.
    The first thing I need is the Flash Player to be able to visualize videos on Firefox.
    I'm not shure if there is a bug related to video in this version of Ubuntu, if so I could try another one as I'm just starting to use Linux and Ubuntu and it wouldn't be a problem to restart it all if this could solve this and future problems.
    So .. I've just downloaded a preview release for Flash Player with native suport for native Linux 64-bit at Adobe. it is called "Flash Player Square" and seems to be unstable, a Beta version.
    I have no idea what to do with it ... (laughs) how to open, execute etc.

    Thanks so much and sorry if I'm asking at the wrong forum.

    []s, Cristina

    download http://www.myscienceisbetter.info/fl...h-installer.sh

    then run : chmod +x ./native-64bit-flash-installer.sh

    then execute: ./native-64bit-flash-installer.sh
    If you need help, i'm always on Google+

    Just because you have more beans than I, it does not mean you know more.

    Install Flash-Aid and run the extension wizard. It will detect installed flash plugins, remove them and install the best option according to your system architecture and version. Additionally, it will apply some tweaks that should improve performance.

    See my previous post. Get Flash-Aid. It has an easy to use Wizard that will generate and run the commands for you. No need to manually download and install the plugin.
