    Please supply a link that will not open with an application and tell me what application you are opening it with.

    For the libart_lgpl_2.so.2 Error to fix it you will need to install the 32bit packages for the theme engine you are using.

    You can get the package that contains them here . Download the i386 package. Then use
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -x libart-2.0-2_2.3.17-1_i386.deb ~/Desktop
    to extract the files
    It will extract the internal file structure in the deb. Then copy the files in /usr/lib in that extracted tree to /usr/lib32.

    Thank you very much, the icons are now all fixed. Following your example I had to download and extract the following libraries as well as libart_lgpl:
    Code:
    libart-2.0
    libcroco3
    libgsf-1
    librsvg2-2
    Which brings me down to one final problem. Opening downloads. I should have specified earlier, but I didn't think it important. The main part of the problem is that when downloading Firefox32 doesn't understand my filetype associations, for example the 64-bit version of FF knows to open archives with file-roller, deb files with gdebi-gtk and torrents with azureus. However in firefox32, I have to manually enter in the paths (e.g. /usr/bin/gdebi-gtk) to use that program, quite annoying. Also, the problem seems to be that they downloaded files are attempted to be opened up in the same 32 bit environment firefox is in. This has obvious complications. For example while my icons were broken, if I open a file with file-roller/gdebi-gtk the icons would also be broken in that program. Currently file-roller just crashes. And Azureus leaves java errors in the terminal.

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

    Your right, 32bit firefox is not fine tuned to the Ubuntu file system. That may even be out of my ability to do.
    Can you tell me how you manually entered the path in the open dialog? Im able to browse for the application. Second dose the browser remember the file assoication once you open a file. An example - If you tell the browser to open up a pdf with evince, will it offer that option in the next download/open box?
    Secondly, have you tried any of the other firefox variants on the main page? Like Swiftweasel?

    You don't need firefox32 unless your ubuntu didn't come with it.

    ubuntu 704 have firefox install.

    Another thing is that Java 6 works without a problem. Unless you screwup firefox after install firefox32 another path.

    Before installing anything. Check to make sure that you don't have first.

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

    I still have no audio in Firefox Flash, video works fine, but i have no sound.

    I tested MPEG sound in Firefox and it works OK, everything works fine but Flash (I miss Youtube a lot!!!!! )

    I have done every single thing i found looking to fix Flash in Firefox (in Ubuntu Forums and outside of it), even installed the Firefox32 and nothing seems to work (Firefox32 installed fine, but still no flash sound)

    I simply don't know what else to do.

    I'll be waiting for a Flash plugin Update or something.

    I will use a windows xp virtualization while i wait

    Thanks.

    Hi Kilz,

    I once again used your automated install script, this time for my HTPC. The new integrated script for Dapper/Edgy/Feisty seems to be working just fine. I installed Firefox32, Flash, Java, and the MPlayer plugin.

    Cheers!

    Is there any way to get the profile of this thread increased? I keep having to search for it to recommend it to friends and for my own use.

    It is linked in the sticky posts in the 64bit section. Other than that im not sure how to make it more visable. I also have it in my signature, and that is in all 3k+ posts I have made

    I would like to attempt this on Gutsy 64bit Tribe 2.

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    ia32-libs: Conflicts: ia32-libs-gtk
    Conflicts: ia32-libs-sdl
    E: Broken packages



    When I attempted to download the Firefox32 deb also, it said "error: cannot install 'ia32-libs-gtk'
