Adobe brings back a Flash Player for 64-bit systemsFiled under: Events;
Few months ago, Adobe has discontinued the beta-testing the 64-bit Linux version of Flash Player. Now Adobe is back with 64-bit flash back, this time not only for Linux but for Windows and MacOS X. The current beta is called Square, and represents the three OS in a 32 – and 64-bit version. The installation is as always on hand, a source package, there are not as usual.
You the archive with the Flash Player Download from labs.adobe.com. Then when I would step on this preview version, but only with a 64-bit system make, for users of a 32-bit program can expect no benefit in my eyes, a little bit more on that later … The installation is running, for example, Sun from :
$ Tar-xzf FlashPlayer *. tar.gz$ Rm ~ / .mozilla / plugins / libflashplayer.so # is actually just a symlink$ Cp libflashplayer.so ~ / .mozilla / plugins /to unpack the archive
Over and then slide into the library libflashplayer.so to ~ / .mozilla / plugins / directory is not really necessary. Linux is, unfortunately, not Linux. From this you can look at this a bit differently, but I would not copy the beta directly into the system.
After restarting the browser you should say “About Adobe Flash” page that you are traveling with at least Flash 10.2.161.22. If there is something of 10.1.82.76, then the new library was not attracted.
Should you want to get rid of this beta again, then delete the plugin and set a symlink to the back of the package manager installed Flash.
$ Rm ~ / .mozilla / plugins / libflashplayer.so$ Ln-s / usr / lib / flashplugin-installer / libflashplayer.so ~ / .mozilla / plugins /
Again, however, re: Linux is not Linux. Have the notice applies only if you install Adobe Flash in Ubuntu through the package flashplugin-installer. If you flash from partner sources have installed from the package adobe-flashplugin, then the paths are slightly different.
It worth the effort? I have not tried now many flash sites, but in my eyes it's not worth it. Well, it IS a 64-bit plugin, but as long jerky in full screen flash like a slide film, I do not really mind.
