    Please be aware there is a bug with using flash and youtube, if you adjust the sound there it can go out. Go to another site and adjust it up to fix it.

    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    Could I install the official Ubuntu i386 Firefox package with --force-architecture ? Does it work?

    You would have some problems. But it may work in some ways. Take a look here the attached graphics as an example of problems you will see.
    You could just as easily use the .deb file on the main page that will avoid this and not have to force anything.

    I am running Dapper on an AMD64 and 32 bit firefox as described in this great howto!

    Help...?
    Yes I have seen this. Just a question did you follow the howto, or install the script?

    I installed it manually by following the howto.

    This is the section you need to go over to maks sure its done. If you still cant get it to work, or dont want to mess with it simply install the firefox32.deb file.

    Next

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /usr/local/bin/firefox32
    Copy the following code into the editor.

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh 
    export GTK_PATH=/usr/lib32/gtk-2.0 
    export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libpangohack.so.0 
    linux32 /usr/local/firefox32/firefox $@
    Then we make it executable

    Code:
    sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/firefox32
    Get the attached file libpangohack.tar.gz This file contains 2 lib's. The libs enable you to do things like open a downloade file with the file roller without saving it first. Extract the file to your desktop it will make a folder called libpangohack. Open a terminal and paste in the following.
    Code:
    sudo cp -r ~/Desktop/libpangohack/* /usr/lib32
    You can delete the files from the desktop now.

    Aaa silly me, I had that originally but removed the LD_PRELOAD line since I thought it didn't have any effect since I got the preload error on startup. I should have seen the connection....

    thx anyway!!!
