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

    There's a typo in your mplayerplug-in script. I am guessing md should be mkdir. It works when I change that in the script.
    But I get the libaudio.so.2 error when I start mplayer, so I guess it's not much good for me.
    mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libaudio.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

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

    Thanks for this easy how-to. Followed the automated install and worked like a charm to get 32-bit FF with flash working on my new Edgy 64-bit Install. Just built a new system with a Core 2 Duo and have never had a 64-bit install before (first all Linux machine, no more MS). Hoping it sticks.
    I’ve been looking to get a Citrix ICAclient running to log into work (noticed that www.citrix.com does have a 64-bit version for windoze…ack!).
    If I download the 32-bit citrix client is there anything special I need to do to get it to work with 32-bit FF?
    I have it working on my other Ubuntu Dapper 32-bit system.

    EDIT: got Citrix client working and wrote up how here
    Thanks to Kilz for this guide and the Wine on 64-bit guide as well.

    I tried running your script and now synaptic is broken.........

    What version of Ubuntu are you running?

    Thanks in advance,

    The mplayer package and plugins are incompatable with EDGY and this is clearly posted on the main page of the howto

    I'm not saying you're responsible, but I would appreciate some help getting synaptic working again. I've unsuccessfully tried uninstalling j2re1.4. Should I try to install j2re5.0?

    It turns out that I never completely installed jre1.4. After running your script again and waiting for java to finish installing, synaptic is fixed and everything works as you said it would.

    I wanted to let everyone having mplayer-plugin issues in on a temporary fix for Mozilla-based browsers. I installed Iceweasel 32-bit and was able to get Flash and Java working, but I couldn't get the mplayer-plugin to get past 99% for streaming video. I searched the forums for at least an hour and didn't really find a solution. Then I made my way to #ubuntu on irc.freenode.net where someone had a solution that worked: The MediaPlayerConnectivity Browser Extension

    Go to http://membres.lycos.fr/sethnakht/ and look for XPI (Exenstion) download. Download the file to the directory of your choice. Once it's done downloading, Click on "Open File" in the "File" menu of your Mozilla-based browser. Find the XPI file you just downloaded. This will install the extension. To configure the extension, restart your web browser. You should now be able to view online streaming content albeit not embedded in the web page. But it's something that works.

    Good luck!

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

    I used your script earlier in the year, but after upgrading to Edgy, firefox crashes when I try to access the chess applets via games.yahoo.com

    Any ideas?
