Quite a mission, but I learned the hard way to always go back to the Ubuntu Forums.
I’m running one of the first AMD64 processors which, I leaned, complicated matters.
Let me document this installation process of the flash plugin on the 64-bit version of Ubuntu 10.04 as I follow it.
- remove previous versions of flash like so
- install the flash plugin as described here
- if you have a older 64-bit cpu like me (like a Xeon or AMD64)Â do this
- Visit Adobe Flash’s test site to see if you were successful
The process above also gets flash working on Google Chrome.
Thank you to the community on the Ubuntu Forums.
