Back to 32 bit Linux Flashplugin again…

After Adobe released its 64 bit flashplugin for Linux 64 bit OS , I switched to that 64 bit version at once and hope that the problems can be fixed forever. But I am so bored with its endless crashing and decided to turn back to the 32 bit version.

Just make a record for myself :

1st: Remove the gnash (If you have)

sudo apt-get remove gnash

2nd : Install nspluginwrapper and Flash 9:

sudo apt-get install nspluginwrapper flashplugin-nonfree lib32nss-mdns

3rd:  Flash 9 is not packaged, but the package installer script will fetch it from Adobe’s download site and install it. Now simply install nspluginwrapper as a Firefox plugin:

sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/plugins/ /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/ sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/plugins/ /usr/lib/firefox-3.0/plugins/

OK, Bye
