    Flash and 10.04 64-bit

    Hi,

    For those running 64-bit Lucid, did it come preinstalled with NSPlugin wrapper and 32-bit Flash or the Alpha version of 64-bit Flash for Linux? My system is still running Jaunty and I'm using the Alpha 64-bit version of Flash which works quite well, so just curious which one they included in 64-bit Lucid.

    Me, just download the Linux x64 Flash from http://labs.adobe.com unzip it and put it as root at /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

    Installing through the repos will give you NSPlugin wrapper and plethora of other packages along with the installer.

    If you install the package "ubuntu-restricted-extras" or "flashplugin-installer" it will install the 32bit flash with nspluginwrapper. I downloaded the adobe 64bit flash from their site instead.

    If your the only user just create a folder in .mozilla called plugins, and stick the 64bit player from adobe's site in there. It works great.

    I'm trying to do this and am getting the following error message...in LL-LTS...

    "You don't have the right permissions to extract archives in the folder "file:///usr/lib/mozilla/plugins"

    Any ideas? I'm the only user...

    You have to have root access to copy files to that folder. Use "sudo".
