    TIP: Kubuntu 11.04 64-bit faster Flash Player

    So I came across this tip on the Kubuntu Forums regarding 64-bit Kubuntu and Flash. This has actually made flash on my system speed up by 200%. Do the following:

    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer
    Close all Firefox windows, open them back up, and test it out.

    Works a treat!

    Thanks.

    I had the "official" 64bit Flash included with the kubuntu-restricted-extras/addons package running in 64bit Kubuntu on two machines for a while only to have it stop working for no apparent reason although still installed. I had been getting round it with Gnash but this works better.

    Anyone know why?

    Thanks again.

    It is no longer necessary to manually install flash. The package adobe-flashplugin will install the latest version of flash (currently 11).
