Nice, thanks you very much
Does the script still work for Karmic Koala 9.10? I need a 32-bit firefox in order to install the pkcs modules for the ACR38U identiy card reader.
Do you still consider this guide obsolete considering that Adobe has pulled the 64-bit flash support?
I've been considering installing the Maverick in 64-bit when it's finally released but even the download page now stated 64-bit is NOT recommended for daily usage, and I wonder if that is due to the situation with adobe flash.

Quick and dirty log of how I got FF32 + Java6 to work on my Lucid install, starting with the script from the first post. Not all commands are to be executed in the same directory, you need to know your way with command-line and use common sense, sorry.
And for those wondering why we still need this: in my case I need to run a full Webex session and Webex's Java Applet is still broken on Ubuntu 64bits, trying to load 32bit shared libs.
Hopefully this will save someone some trouble...Code:wget http://home.comcast.net/~ubuntume/ff32_3in1_6294.tar.gz tar xvzf ff32_3in1_6294.tar.gz ./3in1 (choose Hardy + no browser, no flash; no java - but some packages will still fail to install...) #finish installing ff32bit wget -c "http://home.comcast.net/~ubuntume/firefox32-3.0.1-ubuntu_7.10-8.04_amd64.deb" wget -c "http://fr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/x/xutils-dev/xutils-dev_7.2.ds2-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb" sudo dpkg -i xutils-dev_7.2.ds2-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i firefox32-3.0.1-ubuntu_7.10-8.04_amd64.deb #so far should work on lucid, start it via menu or: /usr/local/bin/firefox32-3 # now install java 32bits wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/s/sun-java6/ia32-sun-java6-bin_6.22-0ubuntu1~8.04.1_amd64.deb wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/s/sun-java6/sun-java6-jre_6.22-0ubuntu1~8.04.1_all.deb sudo dpkg -i sun-java6-jre_6.22-0ubuntu1~8.04.1_all.deb ia32-sun-java6-bin_6.22-0ubuntu1~8.04.1_amd64.deb ln -fs /usr/lib/jvm/ia32-java-6-sun/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins/ sudo chown -R `whoami` /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins/ # Java should now work if you restart ff /usr/local/bin/firefox32-3

Holy cow, this is WAY too complicated. Wouldn't nspluginwrapper be MUCH better‽
Hi !Originally Posted by Kilz
I thought there will be some kind of guide on removing 64-bit Firefox, including all the plugins, from 64-bit Ubuntu, and then, install fresh 32-bit Firefox and Flash...
