Yes it is, I and many others have done it!
But the script will install old versions of browsers and also flash is old version! So its better to update them! May be java too, I don't remember!!
You will find ways how you can do those updates if you look posts page or two or three back from this page!
Good luck and ask if you have problems!
Here is a stable version of flash 9(r31). Some users are reporting crashes in 8.10 with version 10.
Place in /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins and you're all set.
I have the following problem. I have kde4 and double-clicking the 3in1 file and selecting 'run in terminal' is not an option. So I assumeis sufficient...and I get this error. I found an earlier post addressing this but if a workaround was listed I missed it. Thanks in advance!!!Code:sh ./3in1
fredizdman@kubuntubox:~/ff32-3in1$ sudo sh ./3in1
mkdir: cannot create directory `/tmp/ff32': File exists

Also, I am running Intrepid, but most people said that wasn't really a problem. I just want to play on pogo.com

I also need a working Java plugin and can't seem to figure out how to do that.
I've fiddled with Linus for years now since before the v1.0 kernel was out. I'm really tired of taking days or weeks to get stuff working. I just want it to work.
Maybe its time to just switch back to 32 bit Linux.
Oh well... Many thanks to Kilz for keeping this effort going this far. His desire to leave it behind leaves us knowing how much of a difference he made.
Thank you for using so much effort for this, you have done great job!This howto is Obsolete
When I started this thread long ago on June 23, 2006 I never in would have thought it would last this long and help so many people. It may yet help someone. But for the majority of users this is outdated info. A 64bit Flash and Sun Java plugin are available. Granted they are still under development, but both seem to work as well if not better than the 32bit.
Its been fun, but I wont be actively supporting this thread any more. I encourage all 64bit users to move to the 64bit plugins asap.
with light junnuh
After getting fed-up with nspluginwrapper crashing ever few pages, I just got firefox working with all 64-bit plugins that were released two weeks ago.
Flash can be downloaded here: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html (see tar.gz link at the bottom)
It's a fairly straightforward install--copy the plugin into a plugins directory--make sure you have removed anything to do with "nspluginwrapper".
Java can be downloaded at http://download.java.net/jdk6/ (go the very last section, AMD64 Linux)
extract java to /usr/local/jdk (or jre).
For java, the plugin is in jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
(Don't look in plugins because that folder is empty)
Hope this helpsCode:sudo update-alternatives --install /etc/alternatives/java java /usr/local/jre/bin/java 100 sudo update-alternatives --install /etc/alternatives/jar jar /usr/local/jre/bin/jar 100 sudo update-alternatives --install /etc/alternatives/javac javac /usr/local/jdk/bin/javac 100 sudo update-alternatives --config java sudo update-alternatives --config javac sudo update-alternatives --config jar java -version sudo ln -s /usr/local/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
/usr/lib/firefox/plugins/ seems to work for me (Kubuntu -- 8.04.1 Hardy Heron AMD-64). I copied the v10 flash .so file to every damn plugin directory there is and it works. For now.
Someone should update that nice and fancy step-by-step guide with screenshots and all.
