I used the automated install for Firefox 2.0 on Edgy. It hung up a few times while downloading some files and made me reenter my sudo password but in the end it seemed to finish properly. When I try to run firefox from the menu, the little task bar thing comes up that says "Starting.." but then just disappears. Running firefox32 in a terminal gives me these errors:

ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libpangohack.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libpangohack.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

ALSO:
When clicking on the orange update icon on the top right of my screen, I get the following error:

My guess is the installer just did not get everything it needed to? What should I do? Thanks in advance!

Exact same problem over here. I've got Beryl (looks like you do too, Pejalo) if that makes a difference. Besides that, I've got a fairly fresh install.

nullaresnata and tonyr, I have no idea what caused the errors, but after playing around a bit I seem to have everything working. I may have installed something unneccessary, but this is what I remember doing. If any steps don't work as described, I'd stop the process and post your problem here so someone can help.

First, run 'sudo apt-get install -f' like the software update tells you to (and hit Y). This should fix any errors from Synaptic or the updater, also deinstalling Firefox.

Run
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32asound2 lib32ncurses5 ia32-libs-sdl ia32-libs-gtk gsfonts gsfonts-x11 linux32 as described in the Manual Howto section of this howto to get any packages Firefox might need. I don't know if these are even needed for 2.0, but I did it just to be safe.

This following instructions are taken from the 'automatic' script. It downloads libraries needed for Firefox 2.0, and installs them. It then downloads the browser, installs it, and permits the command firefox32 to be executable.


cd ~/Desktop
sudo wget -c http://home.comcast.net/~ubuntu64user/ia32-lib-firefox-amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite ia32-lib-firefox-amd64.deb

sudo wget -c http://home.comcast.net/~next/firefox32-2.0-ubuntu-amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/base-plugins/firefox32-2.0-ubuntu-amd64.deb
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/firefox32

At this point Firefox32 should be in your menu under Applications > Internet. Make sure you close all browser windows you might have open, then see if it works. Go to Help > About Mozilla Firefox and it should show 'Linux i686' somewhere. The 32bit version still kept all my installed bookmarks, cookies, even extensions. When I run firefox32 from a terminal, I still get similar errors to the ones posted above, but the window opens.

I then installed Flash 7 and Java using the directions from the manual how-to. The sound seemed to be way off while playing a video in Flash.. I might have forgotten the sound package from the manual how-to. But I remember the sound in youtube videos being terribly off back in the days of 32bit Ubuntu Dapper anyway.

I hope this provides you guys with some kind of direction, let me know whether you get it working!

edit: I just installed Flash 9 and the sound issue seems to be a lot better. Also, Flash 7 wasn't dispalying text correctly, as well as many of the objects in some Flash games I tried. I recommend just installing Flash 9. When you go to this site (http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer9.html) as described, you want the 'installer for linux' file, not the standalone player.

Has anyone else had firefox32 crashing on them? It seems that it only crashes with JavaScript, but I'm not sure if that's the only instance of it crashing. I don't know how to fix it or if I can. Can anyone help me out?

The script mplayer-plugin, used to install mplayer with all libraries, starts with an error. The second line reads
md ~/Desktop/install
This should be
mkdir ~/Desktop/install

I am working with edgy 64bit and have used the automatic install script, everything works fine except java, going to an applet page makes the browser crash, and I see the following on the console:
(firefox-bin:1475): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
(QFA)Talkback error: Can't initialize.
current locale is not supported in X11, locale is set to CX locale modifiers are not supported, using defaultINTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: SendRequest: Read of ack failed: 0

System error?:: Success

I tried this chown .. that is proposed on the first page and also some disabling,enabling as proposed somewhere on page 44 of the thread, but no luck. what else could I try?
thanx

Hey Kilz,
Do you think you could make a version with the ubuntu version?
Problem with the mozilla one is that it looks like crap with murrine themes :(
Hope to hear from you soon, keep up the great work,

I tried using the 64bit firefox with nspluginwrappers and java was crashing badly, so I tried firefox32, however,
although now flash is working properly, java is still crashing badly...it cannot handle the page and then it shutdown.
When invoking firefox32 through the shell this is what I get:


ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libpangohack.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
esd: no process killed
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libpangohack.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

(firefox-bin:19813): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.

now that is correct that it does not hurt the browser, but once I open a page with java this is what it
says:


current locale is not supported in X11, locale is set to CX locale modifiers are not supported, using defaultINTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: SendRequest: Read of ack failed: 0


I am running Edgy on Intel Core2Duo. I removed nspluginwrapper and I have still on the system
the j2re for 64. I think this shouldn't matter.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Okay, after two days of waiting for the author of this thread to answer my previous
posting, I went scavenging the net for answers and finally got Java running.
Well, basically this thread is similar to the following Ubuntu documentationpage
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxAMD64FlashJava

Although there is no large difference between them, I went and grabbed the latest java
version....this time from Sun (not BlackDown):
http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=10872

now everything seems to be running fine. However, I still get the following error message:
(firefox-bin:5815): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
but it does not affect it too much. I also commented the following line from /usr/local/bin/firefox32
#export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libpangohack.so.0
to avoid having the bunch of errors regarding libpangohack.so.0

Hope this works,

Alberto

Hello,

First let me thank you for the great job on the script and How-to. However, I'm having some issues getting Flash to work on edgy 64-bit. I installed firefox32 without any problems. It is working great, so is the java plugin.

But Flash will always crash the browser. It doesn't matter which version I use, 7 or the beta 9. I removed any trace of firefox from the system and completely reinstalled it. I made sure there were no double libflash.so files anywhere.

If I run firefox32 in a console and go to any website containing flash I just get the following error:


Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
The program 'firefox-bin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 86 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)


I really have no idea what could be wrong :(. I must say I haven't been able to get the stand-alone Flash 9 player to run either. It does not crash, but simply shows nothing :(.

Internet without Flash is kinda difficult in this day and age. Anyone have any ideas?

It is probably the x11 composite module.

Insert this into your firefox script /usr/bin/firefox:


export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1

Or disable the composite module by deleting


Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Solutions were found here (http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Xorg_X11_and_Transparency#Mozilla_.28Firefox.2 9_crash_Issue_with_Flash).

I finally got this FAQ to work after reformatting my laptop and installing Edgy final on it. I only have one problem: I cannot print in the 32-bit browser. Is there any solution to this, or am I just stuck?

gaillard
January 30th, 2007, 09:06 PM
Does it give you an error message or something because I don't see how that effects the printing command...?

Angafirith
January 30th, 2007, 09:21 PM
There's no error message, but the printer doesn't come up in the print dialog. The only thing present there is "PostScript/default". When I open my 64-bit Firefox, it lets me print without issue.

I figure that I'm just missing a library or something, but I don't know where to start. Can anyone here print from the 32-bit firefox?

gaillard
January 30th, 2007, 10:02 PM
Well in the properties beside the default I beleive you just enter a standard lp unix command. I am new to this too but to print in unix I think its the lp command and I noticed that was in there. With in the command you reference a printer, so perhaps you just include yours in that command, who knows though.. certainly not me...

If you notice 64 bit has the same thing, so you just need to put your printer device within the lp command.

Install went well however firefox32 is unable to detect DNS settings within resolv.conf loaded back to firefox64 and works fine no trouble at all. Went back to firefox32 and put in IP rather then name and site game up.

Anyone have any thoughts on how I could fix this?.

Thank you

Try using the command "firefox32" from the command line. If your launchers are set to run "firefox", it will probably still run the 64-bit version.

I also had problems with the Flash installer not accepting the install path. So this is what i did instead :D



wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
sudo tar -xzvf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
cd /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins
sudo mv ~/install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins/
sudo mv ~/install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer.xpt /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins/


I also was able to get mplayer plugin working in Firefox32, although I did it a couple of days ago and can't *quite* remember all the steps. If anyone would care to try out my solution and let me know if it works for them...


This is pretty much the same as the mplayer-script, just with a few modifications...



mkdir ~/Desktop/install
cd ~/Desktop/install/
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs gsfonts alsa-oss mplayer
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk lib32asound2 lib32ncurses5 ia32-libs-sdl
sudo wget -c http://ubuntu.mirrors.tds.net/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/m/mplayerplug-in/mozilla-mplayer_3.17-1ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -x mozilla-mplayer_3.17-1ubuntu1_i386.deb ~/Desktop/install
sudo cp ~/Desktop/install/etc/* /etc
sudo cp ~/Desktop/install/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/* /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins

sudo chmod a+x /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins/*.so

wget -c http://folk.ntnu.no/grannas/debs/mplayer32_1.0pre7-1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i mplayer32_1.0pre7-1_amd64.deb
sudo mv /usr/bin/mplayer /usr/bin/mplayer64
sudo mv /usr/bin/mplayer32 /usr/bin/mplayer
wget -c http://www.people.virginia.edu/~drf8f/MPlayer/releases/codecs/essential-20060501.tar.bz2
tar -jxvf essential-20060501.tar.bz2
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/win32
sudo cp essential-20060501/* /usr/lib/win32/
sudo rm -fdr ~/Desktop/install


um i can't remember, but i'm pretty sure i got that essential package somewhere else and already had it installed, so I skipped that step myself. after restarting firefox32, I went to apple's movie trailer site, and I noticed that mplayer would load, start pre-caching the video, but then fail to play it. So i right-clicked in the window, went to configure... noticed that the video output had nothing selected for it. Changed it to xv, i think i might've tweaked a few other settings but that was pretty much it, mplayer works right now!

I do remember fiddling with /usr/bin/gmplayer it seems that this is simple a symbolic link to /usr/bin/mplayer and handles the gui of mplayer in gnome. If you are having problems launching mplayer, simply make sure that after you replace the default mplayer with mplayer32 that this link is still valid.

hi, first of all, a lot of thanks for this script. i think it worked...
but: i have a few questions
after running the script, when i start firefox, everything works fine. Java works, whereas it didn't before. but when i go to "about mozilla firefox", it says " Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); nl; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061208 Firefox/2.0.0.1", while i would expect something with 32 instead of 64. same thing happens when i use "firefox32" in the terminal. so i wonder if i really installed the 32bit version of firefox.
also, when i use the update manager, it says:
Software index is broken

It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first.
when i run the command, it wants to install j2re1.4. should i do this? because everything's working fine now and i'm afraid it might effect something. i don't know.

thing is, i ran the script a few days ago, then i ran the command "sudo apt-get install -f" and today i noticed the java plugins had disappeared. so when i ran the script again, tha plugins were there again. i'm afraid to lose them when i install the j2re1.4.
i'm sorry if my question seems unclear...

try opening the system monitor
System > Administration > System Monitor
Close all firefox windows, and kill any firefox processes that may be running.
Make sure to start Firefox32, go to the Help > About Firefox
It should say i686 with nothing about x86_64.

ok, so now i've installed j2re1.4, and the Java plugins in both firefox and firefox32 are gone. but i think i have the solution. i have once installed j2re1.4 and the mozilla plugin through Synaptic, because i thought i would need it. but i guess it doesn't "work" with the script. so i removed it completely in Sybnaptic, i'll run the script again and i expect the problem to be solved then..

EDIT: indeed, problem solved. thanks again for the howto and the script!

OK. Checked the about:plugins on Firefox32 and Adobe is installed and works.

From about:plugins-

Default Plugin

File name: libnullplugin.so
The default plugin handles plugin data for mimetypes and extensions that are not specified and facilitates downloading of new plugins.

MIME Type = * / Description= All types / Suffixes= .* / Enabled= No


Is this why I got the error mentioned in my last post? Does this need to fixed? If so, how?

Kilz,

Thanks a ton for collecting all this, and doing all that work on the installer script. I now have Firefox32 running nicely with minimal headaches.

You might want to make it clearer that the script depends on being in the Desktop directory, though. I almost never put anything on the Desktop so I moved it to a location more in line with my organization, and wasn't I surprised when it ran for a while but nothing worked. :)

Thanks again,
Songwind

Yes, I am self taught, and while I have learned a lot. The script does need to be ran from the folder it extracts on the Desktop. I will add it to the next readme file. By the way, What version did you install the newest script for Edgy?

Kilz,

Another huge vote of thanks for taking the time to put this script together. Firefox32 with flash video works fine, but for the life of me I still can't get sound to work in flash. Here are three different approaches I've tried, each with appropriate browser restarts:

1.
killall esd

2. installing alsa-oss and changing /etc/firefox/firefoxrc: FIREFOX_DSP="esd". I also tried setting it to "auto" and "alsa", but with no luck.

3.
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libesd.so.0 /usr/lib/libesd.so.1
sudo mkdir -p /tmp/.esd/
sudo touch /tmp/.esd/socket

Thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to help out. Apologies in advance if the solution is somewhere in this 54 page thread; I admit I got tired of digging around.

Yep, first I downloaded the original script and tried it while you were uploading the new one. Quite a coincidence.

Then the new script had the same behavior, but rather than click it I used the terminal window and tried it that way, so I could easily go back and review the output. I saw that it was looking for ~/Desktop so I moved my extracted directories and it worked great.

Thanks warm Kilz!

I followed manual howto and everything went fine. Now I have Adobe, Flash and Java working.

But Mplayer not, the Script doesn't work, do you have manual howto for it.

Very warm thanks to you Kilz you saved my faith to AMD64.

Thank you Kilz for the scripts and the Howto again.
I successfully updated to 2.0 thanks to you.

I suggest to remove the remark in the Howto leading to my post regarding the languages.
It worked for 1.5 but didn't work for me in 2.0. So it can be misleading.
It is actually simpler, go to:

http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/2.0/linux-i686/xpi/

and drag+drop your xpi into the previously opened Add-ons window. Restart browser.
(Be sure, that the version number exactly match, first i tried .../releases/2.0.0.1/lin..., no wonder it did not work.)

The manual howto is real old. I mainly leave it up so people with old installs can trouble shoot problems if they pop up. I think the mplayer script was my first script :) I just replaced it in the plugins section. But I recommend people run the auto install script rather than the manual howto.

The auto install script tomplayer worked, Yeah!!!

But I have a problem with Adobe. It opens pdf-formulas ok and I am able to fill a pdf-formula in internet ( yes after 1 and half years when I left Win98 behind me and changed to Ubuntu) but I can' print it, it just goes to a plank Firefox window without any warnings.

Can you help me with this problem, I would be very gratefull.

Yes but flash works very well and so does Java and now mplayer so what I have learned: the most of it works!

Very warm thanks from junnuh

Its my pleasure to help. But I fear it may end with Edgy. I just installed Feisty and cant connect to the internet with the 32bit browser. But Feisty is only on herd 4, perhaps its a bug that will be fixed.

Printing from the browser has always been a problem. I havent been able to fix it because it would require a huge chunk of 32bit code (32bit printing system). But it is possible to print to a file, then open the file and print it.

Have you used mplayer as it is installed by your script? I got the ipv6 thing taken care of, and everything else seems to be working great, its just the mplayer plugin. The plugin is there, it just won't play the videos. :confused:

I got it to work by reinstalling all of the mplayer related packages (probably only one was necessary). I think your script broke a link somewhere or something, whatever it was it was fairly trivial to fix.

Hi,

I'm running Edgy (previously used this same method to run Firefox on Dapper and it worked beautifully).

However now, when I encounter certain sites (running Java I believe) Firefox simply closes.

I've tried reinstalling Java and using a previous release but to no avail. I'd be grateful if someone could shed some light on fixing this error.

I get this error:


(firefox-bin:6998): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.

Until Feisty is a release I will not be working on making the script 100% compatible. I am not a Ubuntu developer, just a user. At this point Feisty is still in development and a lot of bugs need to be fixed.
I also tend not to email anyone. That is unless you dont mind an email from my spam trap address, and dont count on an answer to any replies.

Dont hold your breath waiting for the Ubuntu developers to make a 32bit Firefox and plugins avilable, or default (like SuSE). Even after showing it can be done and wasting about a week on the mailing list trying to convince them to do it (https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2006-September/020552.html) last September for Edgy, we still have a 64bit browser. They are more concerned that Flash is proprietary, and that you may run proprietary plugins. Same thing with Wine, they write off giving you an open source application because you might want to run something propretary with it.

Automated Install
This page will be making more than just Firefox avilable. To do that some changes were nessasary.
First you need to make sure the repositories are enabled.
Second, install the Base-plugin script
The browser install files below can install other Firefox varients and are also used to upgrade to new versions.

Browser Install Script
This script allows you to choose the browser you want to install from the ones on this page. It also lets you choose if you want to install the plugins by asking before the plugin is installed. You only have to run this script once. The script needs to be ran from the folder that extracts. That folder should also be on your Desktop. After running this script once you can install any of the other browsers below by double clicking on its deb file. :D
Browser + Base Script Download = base-plugins-browsers-0-5.tar.gz (http://home.comcast.net/~next/base-plugins-browsers-0-7.tar.gz)
Edgy users try this new script (http://home.comcast.net/~next/base-plugins-browsers-0-8.tar.gz)with an Mplayer plugin option for Edgy. Please leave a post to tell me if everything went ok if you use the Edgy script.

I have used this script for Edgy, but it failed when browser installation started with code
Setting up ia32-lib-firefox (0.1) ...
base-plugins: 13: function: not found.

I have completed install by reading through the script and copy&paste lines. As you know line 13 introduces new variable to the script and it is not done correctly:

function strinput {
unset refstr
echo -n "$1"
read refstr
}

I am not programmer, but I can understand code... so you will have to figure it out :)

Also, add path to the SUN Java plugin 1.5.0 since it works, and remove that 1.4.2 repo package.

That is all from me, I got it running (FF/Flash/Java) but with Java from SUN.

What version did you run, the old or new one for Edgy? By any chance did you take the script out of the folder it extracts in before you ran it?

To get around IPv6 issues in Feisty, rather than disabling IPv6 by blacklisting the module, you can actually use the firefox "network.dns.disableIPv6" option (accessible through about:config). It is set to false by default. Set it to true and everything starts working.

Anyway, i got my firefox32 bits working, also got java working but i cant seem to get flash working running the script and doing the manual how to.

I'd like to know if there's a way for me to see what is actually the problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes you could, but if you want to run other 32bit applications like maybe Frostwire its better to just disable it altogether.

Im running ubuntu edgy eft, second, I ran the script that was posted on the second page, i think, the script that was for edgy eft users, the one that asked if you wanted to install the plugin for edgy eft or for another ubuntu relase.

Third, i did try to do the howto after running the script, I tried the last two things that you said to try if it wasnt working.

Finally, I dont think im running firefox 64 at the same time, neither during the script run or while im browsing with the 32 bits.

First off, thanks for the great howto! Most every thing is working I just need to figure out how to get around the following:


Please be aware there is a bug with using flash and youtube, if you adjust the sound there it can go out. Go to another site and adjust it up to fix it.

This bug is biting me in conjunction with another problem I'm having with the flash plugin...

I can't seem to save settings like flash local storage (I can't use http://www.pandora.com NOOO!)

When I go to YouTube the player is set to 0 volume... So, if I attempt to change the volume on a YouTube video, the sound goes out but when I go to another site reset the sound and return the voulme settings don't stick.

So if I could save flash settings I could use the YouTube work around.

It seems like a perms problem but I'm not sure what to set. :confused:

Thanks in advance!

I still do not have the flash plugin, what can I try now?

When you type
about:plugins into the firefox adress bar and hit enter , is there a Shockwave Flash section in the config page?

Here is whats weird. You are running the 32bit Firefox but in the about: plugins we find this.


File name: npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 9.0 r31

What is interesting is that npwrapper is telling us that you have the nspluginwrapper installed for this plugin. That will not work running the 32bit version. You may want to delete the flash plugins and replace them.
If this doesnt work, you may have to hunt down the place where you installed the version of the plugin with the wrapper and delete it.

Using the edgy auto install script on a fresh install of Edgy resulted in a timeout and a broken firefox32. I've tried installing with the script twice, results were identical. Here's the log:

Actually, went through the manual process and firefox works like a charm. Thanks. Only thing is now I have a jre1.5.0_11 folder with a lock on it on my desktop that I can't get rid of? Can I move this thing somewhere else?

That may be hard, you could use the
gksudo nautilus command. This will open up nautilus as a admin. You can then navigate to your desktop folder and delete the folder.

Using the edgy auto install script on a fresh install of Edgy resulted in a timeout and a broken firefox32. I've tried installing with the script twice, results were identical. Here's the log:



The mirror probably went down. I have changed the scripts to use the main mirror , mirrors.kernel.org

Yup, that worked. Actually I used that move the folder to my home directory in case I needed it but it's off the desktop and java still works. Thanks.

BTW, I also used you guide to install wine and that works great also. Thanks again.

That folder is not the place where java is stored. Its a folder left over from the install process you should be able to safely delete it. That you were able to move it and java still worked makes me positive of this.

That's interesting. When I use 64-bit firefox, spellcheck works as it should. On 32-bit firefox mispelled words do not get underlined like they should in text fields such as the one I'm typing in right now to post.

Thanks for hints but I'm preferring to have 64-bit Firefox on my system.Except it is native for x64, it also should be less hackable by script kiddies since there is very few exploits for x64 systems and it's harder to hack browser due to this fact (as well as there is very few peoples who is able to write x64 exploits).

So, I'm preferring solution with nspluginwrapper. I hope someone of universe masters will be kind enough to put this package to repository so users can get it without being IT pro's.Of course 32-bit flash is sort of security hole :) but attack surface is still smaller than with 32bit Firefox+32bit flash.

P.S. Special fu^H^H thanks to Adobe who claimed MULTIPLE platforms support but still fails to prove their words as usually.

The 64bit browser is built off the same code as the 32bit browser. So security should be the same. If we use your logic, the 64bit version will be less secure because fewer people are looking at it.
There is one problem with nspluginwrapper (other than its hard to install, hard to get it to work, and can crash the browser on some sites) The lack of java plugin support.

base-plugins: 13: function: not found

base-plugins: 17: Syntax error: "}" unexpected


Between error 13 and 17 i pressed enter as nothing happened for over an hour. im not a coder so i cant help track this one down sorry. Im about to try the manual install but i hope this helps track down the bug anyway. ill report back on any manual install problems.
Actually its tempting to not use Java on my C2D 64 bit machine and just use my old 2.4Ghz P4 for it lol. This has been painful.

Edit Ok a manual install worked but it looks like......... Anyone know how i can make it look the same as my 64 bit Firefox? Im guessing its a theme but which one? For now it looks poor so ill only use it to play java games. Im now trying to find where to whing to sun that they dont have a 64 bit Linux Java plugin or .debs and should have. I think we should all complain its not like Ubuntu is that rare a distro and 64bit is starting to come into use more widely and much faster than 64 bit 'doze which im certain they support

I would use ndispluginwrapper but the last tutorial on it didn't work for me. Could you give me a link to the tutorial you followed?

1) Installed 32-bit libs:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32asound2 lib32ncurses5 ia32-libs-sdl ia32-libs-gtk gsfonts gsfonts-x11 linux32

2) Added repository - see http://www.janvitus.netsons.org/repository/

3) Installed nspluginwrapper and flash as described on http://www.janvitus.netsons.org/2007/01/15/nspluginwrapper-adobe-flash-player/

Now flash seems to work...

Caveats: repository has other software as well, some versions are newer than current un Ubuntu but some are beta.You may want to remove this repository from sources later(when nspluginwrapper installed).

Note: install command to nspluginwrapper must be given from user who is willing to use browser.I.e. you should issue it as normal user, not as root (unless you want to run as root with flash)

As a warning to 32bit firefox users. Installing the nspluginwrapper to the .mozilla directory in your home folder will make flash stop working on 32bit Firefox. Also if you need java support, nspluginwrapper doesn't have it.

The 64bit browser is built off the same code as the 32bit browser. So security should be the same. If we use your logic, the 64bit version will be less secure because fewer people are looking at it.
No, there is another story.There is very few hackers familiar with x64 asm and fewer users so it is not so interesting target as x86-32, so there is very little chance someone will craft exploit for x64 even if bug known.Not a case for x86-32 though.

Once problem is discovered, in theory, any (?) architecture is hackable of course (but some architectures like "classic" x86 lacks "No Execute" setting are more hackable though).The practice however differs.Dozen of hackers familiar with x86-32 code (there is looooooooots of them) will craft exploit for x86-32 quite quickly, often in few days.Also because majority users running x86-32 so it is interesting target.x64 is another story: there is slightly fewer users up to date so hacker's "reward" is small.As well as there is very few people capable writing on x64 asm and even fewer can craft exploits.Of course this not makes things more secure in theory but gives much more time to apply updates in practice before bug is really getting exploited so YOU can be hacked.

Funny example: compare how many bugs were found in Mac OS when it existed on PowerPC only. Now, compare with x86 Mac OS.Do you really thinking Apple code quality dropped so low?I'm thinking that it remained exactly same but x86 is just more familiar to bunch of hackers so it has been much more carefully "tested" :)


There is one problem with nspluginwrapper (other than its hard to install, hard to get it to work,
Hmm, I seen things harder than that.But not very user-friendly solution, yes.I wonder why Masters of Universe will not put this into repository.If someone wanna to give a try, it is up to him, right?Maybe display warning it is beta quality solution.


and can crash the browser on some sites)
Did not noticed so far. Now I have opened 250+ tabs and there is some sites using flash.Well, let's see what happens.


The lack of java plugin support.
I'm personally do not need this right now.Under Windows or 32-bit Linux I'm always switched it off in browser.It is quite hard to keep up to date, and there is regular security issues (like sandbox bypassing) - this makes it a poor choise for web.Additionally it can be abused to track your real IP even if you using proxy, etc.And there is really very few sites where it really needed.Flash is another story due to video for example.

You are comparing 2 different code bases in the mac os for intel and ppc. There are actual differences in the code. Not so in firefox for 32 bit and 64bit. It is the exact same code with no changes. The only changes are the processor flags used when compiling.
Same code = same bugs = same flaws.

Im still working on a Feisty script, I will release one when Feisty is released. The reason Im holding off is things change so fast. But I have found that the Java that is installed (jre1.42 blackdown) has problems on Feisty. I went to the java site and was able to download the 1.5.0 or java5 software (http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=11020) version 11. This seems to work much better. The manual instructions on the front page should be all you need to install it to replace the existing install. But remove it first with


sudo rm -rfd /usr/lib32/java32

To be safe.

Thene
March 28th, 2007, 05:22 AM
Thank you for that, I actually got it working.

Funnily enough I was using 1.5.0 or java5 software version 11. The problem was that I had this all working with Dapper and when I installed Edgy that was when I first encountered the Java problem and I was never able to fix it.

Just going back over the installation, I think something went awry with the symbolic link. When I looked at the file in firefox32/plugins, it was locked. I simply removed it and reinstalled the Java and now it's all working again.

Thank you so much for your help. :-D

(The problem was so unbearably frustrating! Especially when a browser full of open tabs disappears. I am over the moon!)

Hey Kilz,

Thanks for all your hard work helping us relative noobs tackle the 64bit juggernaut ;) I got 32bit ff and flash up and running with no problems under edgy, but ran into the problem you mentioned trying to install it in feisty.
I saw your comment on the opening page, but was just wondering what ipv6 support is, and what the possible effects might be of blacklisting it, what other programs might depend on it? I ran into dependency hell under edgy, what with the kernel change I needed to do to get my 4318 wifi card working on my 64bit system etc etc... so I am trying to be a little careful to at least somewhat understand what I am doing ;)
another question, about the flash 9 installer... it looks like all the installer does is drop the plugin into your firefox plugins folder... so I tried dropping it into my 64bit firefox folder manually, no joy, so I went and looked at the installer script, which mentions that the .so file is just a symbolic link and that the data would be installed by the script, but could not find the data, which I assume is that other file that got installed... anyhow, is there any way to make 64 bit ff use the 32 bit plugin? you mentioned that the 32 and 64 bit ff code is the same... any insight would be much appreciated...
Cheers~ Ben

ipv6 is mostly a pain in the rear. It isnt used all over, and ipv4 is still in use if you disable ipv6. While I havent tried all 20k applications in Ubuntu, what I have tried worked. In any event if something you rely on stops accessing the internet, it is easy to just reverse the instructions since nothing is deleted.
There is one way of making 64bit firefox use 32bit plugins, or at least some of them. Its called nspluginwrapper. It is hard to install , hard to make work (read almost impossible), and doesnt offer any java support. Secondly if you try it, it will make 32bit firefox plugins stop working.
There is no way other of making 64bit firefox use 32bit plugins, because of the way they are compiled. If you are thinking you are missing out on performance, dont, since it is based on the 32bit code, any performance improvements will not be humanly noticeable. There will have to be a 64bit rewrite of the firefox code before 64bit users notice any difference.

Thanks, i had ff32 installed in edgy, (from your instructions here) and was pretty impressed, i actually think the 32bit was faster... I just want to make sure that I am not going to frack things up by blacklisting ipv6... but i'm gonna try it and see what happens.

It is funny that the 64 and 32 bit programs are basically the same but the plugins don't interchange. it seems like there should be a way to hack a fix script that would either make the plugins think it is a 32 bit system, or to make the program think the plugins are 64bit....

Well, I like everything else about feisty so far...

Hey Kilz, thanks again, I blacklisted ipv6 and now ff32 runs ok. Actually I would venture a guess it is about 50% faster than ff64 with ipv6 allowed... at least in terms of lag waitig for a site to begin to load.
Flash works great, no sound lag or any of the issues I had with edgy...
java... not so much... some sites that use java kill the ff session altogether...
wmp 9... Is there a way to get the codecs? mplayer doesn't seem to like it, and the plugin wizard doesn't seem to notice...

cheers ~Ben

the java problem is known. It was discussed a few posts before your first one. Its also mentioned in the feisty section on the first post. The older java in the Edgy script doesnt work well with feisty.

What version did you run, the old or new one for Edgy? By any chance did you take the script out of the folder it extracts in before you ran it?


Sorry for late reply.... was busy :-)

I have used latest script that was in your initial post... and I have executed it from the directory it created on desktop, as per instructions.

Actually I installed java via the manual instructions from the first post, in the first place, and it seems to be working for some sites that require it, such as ebay, but other sites, like webchatrooms, kill the ff window... I use Xchat, so that is not a big deal... I think I need to uninstall all the java including the 1.4 that seems to be the default (blackdown? I haven't really dug into it yet) and try reinstalling it manually...

The bigger problem is Mplayer...
I am not able to get it to play anything online, I thought it was just windows media player but quicktime and realplayer movies all act the same: I thought that feisty was s'posed to automaticaly install all the restricted codecs etc, but it seems like there aren't any accessable to mplayer... I get the mplayer logo and sometimes a buffering status bar, but at 99% it just stops... I know that this is an older problem, but I am not familiar enough with linux to try to fix this in feisty on my own... Any ideas?

Thanks~Ben

I think it has to do with the fact that its using a mplayer compiled for Edgy, Edgy did the same thing when we used a Dapper mplayer. I will be working on a fix as soon as Feisty is released.

... I will be working on a fix as soon as Feisty is released.

Any hints on how to get mplayer working in the meantime?

Also, some websites load kinda funny, the lucasarts site for example, for some reason part of the page either doesn't load, or at least doesn't display, it seems sort of like an easrlier post where for some reason menu items were displaying behind part of a website instead of on top, but in this case that part of the page is blank... Is it a problem with java? should I remove all the java on my system and try to reinstall it? if so, what do i need to remove? Do I need to keep the blackdown java for anything or are there some things dependent on it?

Thanks

I made mplayer work in Feisty by reinstalling all the mplayer related packages (probably just mplayer-mozilla was really necessary, but I just checked them all) after installing firefox32. Has worked great ever since.

been running these scripts for ages, but recently, I have a need to use 64bit Mplayer and mencoder for video editing, so cannot install the 32 bit version of mplayer anymore for browser use (realplayer/quicktime plugins in firefox).

I have flash9 and java1.6 working in 32bit firefox but want Mplayer plugins to work in 64bit browser. Is this possible??

I ran the script for firefox32+flash on ubuntu edgy, and i got some errors during the running of the script, i couldnt really see them because it was fast. anyway its finished but i dont see any menu entry, only the regular 64 bit firefox.
and if it means something- i didnt get any flash and java license during the installation.... maybe something went wrong but how can i find out what it is?

hi killz,
i installed your howto with the script and it worked fine. i have since installed beryl and my nvidia graphics drivers and somehow my flash doesnt work any more on the 32 bit firefox. i havent tried fixing it yet since im not sure which direction to go. im still a n00b with linux but im learning quickly. can i install your script again or will that just corrupt my files? are there some reports i should include in my next post that will help you diagnose my problem? if so what are the commands?

thanks for taking time to help me out

I have arrived at my first Ubuntu (6.10, 64 bit) problem that has stumped me. Both with the script and the manual method for installing firefox32 on my amd64 system, the following happens:


sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32asound2 lib32ncurses5 ia32-libs-sdl ia32-libs-gtk gsfonts gsfonts-x11 linux32

I am not sure why this happens. I believe I have the appropriate repositories enabled via Synaptic (the following are checked off in Synaptic-->Settings-->Repositories-->Ubuntu 6.10 tab: "Community maintained...," "Canonical supported...," Software restricted...," and "Proprietary drivers...").

Those packages exist in Edgy. Perhaps your download source was offline. I looked at the repo's in you sources file and it looks like the files are there.

Using the same sources.list that I posted above, I still get the same:


sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32asound2 lib32ncurses5 ia32-libs-sdl ia32-libs-gtk gsfonts gsfonts-x11 linux32
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package ia32-libs

I have no idea why this is, but it's preventing me from moving forward in this fix and others. They do not appear via Synaptic either. Is it feasible to manually download and install these packages? Possibly by adding a local path to sources.list where the packages reside on my machine, and then continuing with the "apt-get install" call?

Thanks

Problem resolved.

I found that I certainly am NOT running 64-bit Edgy (must have mislabeled one of the CDs I burned), hence not finding the 32-bit libraries that I was asking the OS to look for.

Thanks for the help.

Same thing happened to me, the script went well and without errors, but at the end the firefox32 still wasnt installed. but finally i managed to install it seperatly using this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxAMD64FlashJava
maybe after u will have to move the plugings to another directory, if u have problems ask.

It sounds like the install didnt install everything. Did you happen to take the script out of the folder it makes when it is extracted?

For some reason the chown, or who owns the files is messed up. This is easy to fix.

It sounds like the install didnt install everything. Did you happen to take the script out of the folder it makes when it is extracted?

It will read the 64bit settings if it was open first , please close the 64bit version when working on the 32bit one. You should also have the 64bit one closed first when trying to open the page with the java applet on it. The applet works , see screen shot.

No flash content is being displayed for me.

I installed 32-bit FireFox on my 64-bit Edgy system using the script linked on the first page. I opted to install Java, Flash, and the MPlayer plugin for Edgy. The installation did not give me any errors.

I am able to run firefox 32-bit (using it to type in this forum), but no flash content is showing. I have disabled my addblock plus for the time being, but this has not helped. I typed "about:plugins" in the address and the flash section reads:

3- Is there any way I can install a language pack or something like that to change the language of the .deb firefox? I managed to do translate it downloading another version and just unpacking it over the files, but that seems a little harsh.

The other problem is that it doesn't integrate with nautilus, for example when I download a file and want to open, it doesn't at all, or when I click to open the folder of the downloads, nothing happens. Is it supposed to be like this? is there any workaround?

According to the Browser, when you dont have the 64bit browser running first is shows everything is working. When the 64bit browser is running , and you open the 32bit browser, it opens a 64bit , not a 32bit. This is normal.

That doesnt sound right, because once a html, archive, or other file is on your computer it doesnt know how it got there. Files saved to one place should open as well in one directory as any other. The files saved on the desktop should open just as well as ones in a download folder.

That means that there are still plugins with the wrapper someplace on your computer. Where is a good question, they could be any place since there is no nspluginwrapper directory. The user chooses where its installed. You might want to do a search and delete what you find.

Perfect. I commented out one line in /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, and flash is now working. I had used ndiswrapper to try getting a broadcom 4306 wireless chip working in the past.

Dear Kilz,

1st thanks for all your efforts, you really help all of us out.
2nd I need some explanation about how the script and install is implemented. Explanation.

I used your script successfully and was a happy guy for quite a while. However, one day it no longer worked. I must have done something but since I did not use a lot of Java (at least not that I am aware of) the best I can come up with is: three updates of Firefox (in two weeks!),an install of a software that required full java. That didn t work so I installed full java. Then it worked. Now nothing works. Well MPEG works in Firefox but Java not in Firefox, Flash not always (version?) in firefox and Java not in any application.

To the point:
Can one safely(without loosing the correct settings for JRE32 etc?) upgrade firefox if initially installed via your script?
How does the 32 bit Java relate to the 64 bit Java requirds for other applications?Do they they somehow interfere? (e.g. Does my application ask for the wrong JRE and therefore not work?)
A bit out of the subject maybe: Can you explain a bit about all the things Java actually refers to? : JRE, JWS, JVM. I cannot get clear what is what. Hence: what is "full java"

Thanks Again

I am not a java expert, but I will give you the information as I know it.
First off, the script installs java 1.4 JRE. The jre is the Java Runtime Environment (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JRE). It is the files needed to only run java. The JVM is the java virtual machine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_virtual_machine). It is the same as the runtime environment. The JWS is the java web start (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_Web_Start) this is when java applications started online do not run in your browser. So called "full" java also includes development files to develop java software. If you dont, dont install it as it is a huge install of files you will never use. Lastly, the only way to upgrade the firefox 32 application is with the updated .debs supplied on the howto's first post.

If you are having problems with java running after you upgraded something you can do a few things.
1. Rerun the script to replace everything as it was.(this may not be such a good idea as you may need the newer version to run something)
2. Follow the Java section of the manual part of the howto. (Recommended as it installs a newer java than the script, that only the browser will use).

If you follow #2 do this extra step first to remove the old plugin.

sudo rm -rf /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Kilz:

I installed Feisty (Xubuntu) a couple of days ago. Before, I ran Dapper (Ubuntu) and had a 32-bit chroot environment to use flash and java but I've really had it with chroot so I was thinking about giving your method a go. There are some instructions for Feisty (i.e. disabling ipv6) but only scripts for Dapper and Edgy. Which one do I use?

/mojoman

ps: I'm sure this has been up before and I'm sorry if this has been covered already but I couldn't find the answer. ds.

I've upgraded to feisty yesterday and wanted to fix java and flash.

I use the 64bit version of feisty. I followed the guide on the steps for java and flash. Flash works but not java...

My first problem is that i cant start firefox32; here are my errors:

Thanks Kilz, :) I just now ran your Feisty script and successfully installed Firefox32 and Flash 9. I installed Java following your Manual Howto, as the Java agreement was not getting accepted, either by my hitting Enter or clicking the OK in the agreement. If you can spare the time, please let me know what I should have done to accept the agreement.

I'm getting the same error as Medeival_Creations when I ran the feisty script. Will also give manual a go

Edit: Just noticed you recommend not to do a manual install on feisty, seems as though the script downloads the package to the base-plugins directory but makes a reference to it to install from the base-plugins directory supposedly on the desktop, which isn't where the package is located. :) My workaround was to create a base-plugins folder on the desktop and put the firefox32.deb in it so the script can pick it up but again fell flat on its face when i got this output:

That file is part of ia32-libs, the script is set up to install it. What was the name of the tar file you downloaded?
You should be able to install the package, but if it didnt install I wonder what else may not have. You do have all the repositories enabled , right?
Open a terminal and enter.

Hi,

I tried to install through the Feisty script but encountered some problems. First, I couldn't start it by double-clicking on it. I don't know if this has something to do with me running xfce4 on Xubuntu but I can't see why it should because I can double-click on other file-types to run them. Anyway, I figured I might as well start it in a terminal so I opened one and punched in "sh base-plugins". Maybe that was a big mistake because although it seemed to start fine after a while of apt-get and download it came to a stop with the following error:


Setting up ia32-lib-firefox (0.1) ...
base-plugins: 31: function: not found

base-plugins: 35: Syntax error: "}" unexpected
mojoman@jukejoint:~/Desktop/base-plugins$

Now, I got a couple of downloaded .debs in the base-plugin folder on my desktop. I haven't tried to run the firefox .deb after this as the script obviously didn't install correctly.

Any ideas on what to do?

sudo chown -hR chris:users /usr/lib32/firefox32/plugins

Anyway, I downloaded the tarball to the desktop and extracted it there so I have a folder called base-plugins and in that folder I have the script called base-plugins.

Leave the script in the folder. The files it downloads go in it, and are then cleaned up when everything is done. Try

Please, just run the script. This will make sure that everything is done. If you are running Feisty (as most people installing now are) you need to use the script as the manual howto is only for Dapper and Edgy.

Try uninstalling the ia32-libs and then reinstalling them. but before you do run
sudo apt-get clean to clear out the downloaded copy on your computer.

Ok, I dont like that verify for java. It only checks the latest version. Sadly java 6 is to buggy to use. Try this page instead. (http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp)
So you have no sound regardless of the pulgin. I have a feeling some things didnt install on your computer. Please go to /ect/apt/sources.list and copy and paste the file into a reply.

Ok, at least the sources look good, But im not sure why you are not getting any sound, out of any plugin. Second, we can see that there is a java plugin, but the browser isnt seeing it.

Lets make sure the java plugin symlink in the plugins directory is actually linking to a file.


ls -al /usr/lib/jvm/ia32-java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0.11/jre/plugin/i386/ns7

For Firefox 32, the preload errors can be ignored, its using an alternate location for the C library, that is ok as far as I can tell.
Sadly Im not sure why firefox 32 isnt working like it should for you. Everything is in place and configured correctly.

Working fine here, thanks!

For newbies like me, if you have a Firefox shortcut in your bottom panel, right-click it, select "Properties" and change "Command" to "firefox32". Mine read "firefox %u", now it reads "firefox32 %u".

Also go to System - Preferences - Preferred Applications and in the Internet tab, Web Browser, select "Custom" rather than Firefox from the dropdown list, then change "Command" to "firefox32". Mine read "firefox %s", now it reads "firefox32 %s".

Correct me if I'm wrong here Kilz, but this keeps Firefox 64 for system help but uses Firefox 32 for everything else.

Yes, Firefox 32 doesnt replace the 64bit Firefox. Because there are some things that use the 64bit firefox like the help file reader that opens when you click on a help button in a program.

i did this and everything installed great and Firefox 32 bit showed up in my Applications menu...but
i still didn't get any sound. i killed all apps...still no sound.
i think it has something to do with the fact that i turned off my sound card in BIOS in order to run my USB
speakers which work...is there any way i could get Flash to recognize them? right now pretty much only
gaim and mp3s and movies make sound on my computer...
thanks for any help.

That means that there are still plugins with the wrapper someplace on your computer. Where is a good question, they could be any place since there is no nspluginwrapper directory. The user chooses where its installed. You might want to do a search and delete what you find.

Brilliant! This was the case indeed for me. If you are having issues with everything else working except for Flash, 'sudo updatedb' to reindex, then 'locate npwrapper' to see if npwrapper.libflashplayer.so is hiding somewhere. If you find it just delete it and restart Firefox32.

Thanks Kilz! :)

I haven't used this script with a Core 2 Duo, but I see no reason why your experience would be any different than mine. I just downloaded and ran the Feisty script with no problems. I used it to install Firefox, Flash, Java, and the Mplayer plugin. I've also used the script for Edgy in the past.
