    I downloaded the script archive. Unpacked it to desktop. Read the readme. Double clicked it and nothing! I tried right click and no choice to 'open in terminal'. I tried manually opening it in a terminal and I get 'sh: Can't open 3in1.sh"
    I checked the permissions and it looks like I don't need to sudo but I tried that anyway.

    I opend the script in Kate and saved it with a'.sh' I was then able to use a terminal to run it. This is the out put. Looks like something is missing.

    I installed the script on the root user, worked great.

    Couldn't get it to work on other users for weeks.

    Tonight, I got it to work for the other user ONE TIME!!

    Now, after shutting down Firefox (as other user) b/c it froze, when I returned and navigate to the web site I want, the page loads, but not the part of the page that says" to play video, click here"

    I went to the "aboutlugins" address, and everything seems fine and enabled

    Back in root user, it works fine...
    Haaaalp!!
    Thats because the plugins and everything is probably owned by root. You are going to have to chown the /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins directory to the users group.

    Please give me some information. What version of Kubuntu are you using? Secondly, is this all you did? What were the exact steps you preformed?

    I had to update the script. Try the new one please. Please dont rename it. Navigate to the directory and use ./3in1 to start it. If the choosing feisty will not install it, try Edgy. The script is the same except 1 package and that should auto update.

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

    Hi there.
    I too encountered script error.
    running Feisty, all current updates.
    Kubuntu and Edubuntu version installed.

    su to root, open terminal, unpack script in /tmp, cd to ff32-3in1, sh 3in1
    Gets to this point and fails:

    Selecting previously deselected package ia32-lib-firefox.

    3in1: 22: function: not found
    Suggestions?

    Is there any info on installing the mplayer plug-in under Feisty? I tried the installer provided under the original post, but it only works for Dapper and Edgy.

    Huge thanks to Kilz, by the way, without whom I'd never have gotten anywhere near as far as I have in getting 32 bit firefox working on my 64 bit machine.

    Don't run it with sh.
    Try:
    Code:
    ./3in1
    or
    Code:
    bash 3in1

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

    Very useful script. My only qualm is with the difficulties associated with making the new browser the default one.

    I started out with swiftweasel32, and set it to be the default in my preferred applications dialogue. While it opens links from the desktop ok, It wouldn't work with other applications that needed to open a browser, however, so I switched to firefox32, with the same results.

    cgmail, for example, outputs in a terminal "Warning: cannot execute ['firefox32', 'https://mail.google.com']".

    I'm really at my wit's end here. Is there any way to get these browsers to work just like the firefox that comes with Ubuntu?
