64 bit flash -- system wide setting?


Just installed 64 bit Debian and wanted to test out the 64bit flash from adobe.


How to "install" 64 bit such that all users on the computer will get flash enabled?

Depends which version of Debian you are running.
The amd64 version is only available in Sid currently.
To install the package from Adobe,untar the package.
Then copy libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins


Regards.
The trooper.

Using Debian Testing.

Had previously did exactly when you've suggested,
however when I tried to verify the flash version installed by going to adobe flash site, iceweasel crashed.

Thanks

Did a reinstall of Iceweasel and dropped the file libflashplayer.so back into /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins and it works.
