Flash-Plugin for Firefox in Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 64bit

before we started, as usual I’ll wrote story how I’m ended in this enlightment.. LOL

OK, since first using my karmic 64bit, actually i had my flash installed via synaptic, (well, since it done via synaptic, it means it using nwrapper ones..). since then actually i went a certain problem like cannot see some embed video from youtube  in certain sites.. well, i find this was not that annoying since i always can do right-click-and-watch-in-youtube thing. since just now, i cant do that right-click thing.. so i do some googling, and i safely landed in here.

so, lets get started shall we…

first, what you need to do isdownload the latest flashplugin for 64bit linux from here, and you can extract it anywhere you prefer..

then open your terminal, and then type
sudo updatedb

then
locate libflashplugin.so

on my computer it look like this
/home/poche/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
/opt/Adobe AIR/Versions/1.0/Resources/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
/usr/share/ubufox/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
/var/lib/flashplugin-installer/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so

of course you can get it differently, and it’s OK

then, overwrite the plugin that had been in its place with the one you just downloaded, you can do it terminally (via terminal. LOL) with sudo cp but i’d rather use nautilus in root mode since it more convinient.
you can open root mode nautilus by pressing alt+F2 and typing
gksu nautilus

and then, press ctrl+L and copy paste the location that you obtained in terminal via locate command..
fr example after you press ctrl+L you copy paste this address to address bar

/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

after done replacing all the libflashplayer.so with the new one, if by chance you install flashplugin-installer via synaptic, don’t forget to uninstall it.

uninstall flashplugin that you install via synaptic, or you can do it terminally  by typing
sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer
or
sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-non-free
depends on which package that you had been installing

Restart your browser, and happy trying..
PS: don’t hesitate to  contact me, or google if you encounter something that shouldn’t
