Visit an excellent place for program hook ups, two click or less install made easy!

mostly for i386 http://appnr.com/

eg.64 AMD adobe flash install will not work....solution

http://www.linuxine.com/2009/04/install-64-bit-flash-player-10-on-ubuntu-904-amd-64.html

http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-10.0.22.87.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz


Though the 64 bit flash player 10 for linux is still a beta version,it works fine on Ubuntu 9.04. Install the 64 bit flash player for Linux is quite easy.
1. Download the 64 bit flash player 10 for Linux beta from here (http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-10.0.22.87.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz)
2. Extract the libflashplayer-10.0.22.87.linux-x86_64.so tar.gz to yourhomefolder/.Mozilla/plugins

Note: .Mozilla is a hided folder,you may press "Ctrl+H" to see it.If you find there isn't a sub-folder "plugins" in the .Mozilla ,you can create this folder by yourself.
3. Restart the Firefox. Done!


my translation of the above for x64 AMD:



1.goto tab Places and open


2.click on Home Folder


3.press Ctrl-H on your keyboard


4.goto folder .mozilla

5.make a new folder inside call it plugins

6.drag the .tar.gz file and extract all in the folder of plugins

7.whalla DONE!

I hope this helps because this has diffenatly helped me as I been learning how to wean myself off M$$oft crap.


Good luck everyone! ;)
