    Red face Adobe Flash Player 11 on Ubuntu x86-64

    Ok, with the recent release of the native version of 64 bit flash player for Linux (and Ubuntu Linux), this post may seem obsolete... I'm just keeping some useful info !



    1) Experiencing troubles ? Be sure to remove previous existing versions of flash player: type in terminal, string by string:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge flashplugin-nonfree gnash gnash-common mozilla-plugin-gnash 
    sudo apt-get remove --purge swfdec-mozilla libflashsupport nspluginwrapper iceape-flashplugin 
    sudo apt-get remove --purge iceweasel-flashplugin mozilla-flashplugin firefox-flashplugin 
    sudo apt-get remove --purge xulrunner-flashplugin midbrowser-flashplugin xulrunner-addons-flashplugin
    sudo rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    sudo rm -f /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    sudo rm -f /var/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    sudo rm -f ~/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    sudo rm -f ~/.mozilla/plugins/*flash*
    sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/*flash*
    sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/*flash*
    sudo rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/*flash*
    2) Install the package, present in the ubuntu repositories:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin
    or install the adobe-flashplugin package via synaptic package manager or Ubuntu software center.

    That's all folks !

    Just, in the end, a thought for Steve Jobs who recently passed away. R.I.P.
