How install Flash 64 on Debian Squeeze 64 bit?


I have installed the testing version of Debian (and for the moment i have mantain even the 32 bit stable version ).
As usual when i want tried a 64 bit OS flash at 64 bit don't function.
(I have had the same problem on Sabayon and on OpenSuse).

I have tried to copy the file on:
/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
without success.
I have tried to copy the file on:
/usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/libflashplayer.so
without success.

There is a way to use flash 64 bit or, as usual, i must use nspluginwrapper with the 32 bit version?

Indeed that is the best method. If it exists in your repo, don't try anything else.

Hmmm, I am in the same boat. Just upgraded to Lenny 5.0.3 64 bit. I need flash and something that will work with BBC radio's iPlayer. I have used Realplayer 10 in the past. According to previous post I added

Code:

deb http://mi.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/debian/ squeeze contrib
To my sources.list. So now I need the name of the file I should ask apt to look for.

In the meantime Happy Christmas to all.

If you are using Lenny,you can get flashplugin-nonfree from Backports:

http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php
http://packages.debian.org/lenny-bac...plugin-nonfree

Add Backports to your sources.list,install the keyring and install with:

Code:
aptitude -t lenny-backports install flashplugin-nonfree
I'd also remove the entry for Squeeze from your sources.list.

Hello, I did as you suggest, now this is how my sources.list looks like

Code:

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20090905-11:36]/ lenny contrib main

deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20090905-11:36]/ lenny contrib main

deb http://ftp.ie.debian.org/debian/ lenny main
deb-src http://ftp.ie.debian.org/debian/ lenny main

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib

deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib
deb-src http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib


http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php
http://packages.debian.org/lenny-bac...plugin-nonfree
This is what happened when I ran aptitude -t lenny-backports install flashplugin-nonfree



Code:
debian:/home/siawacsh# aptitude -t lenny-backports install flashplugin-nonfree
E: Type 'http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php' is not known on line 16 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
E: Type 'http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php' is not known on line 16 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
E: The list of sources could not be read.

No,the two links i posted were for your information.
So remove those and add the following to your sources.list:

Code:
deb http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports main contrib non-free
Then run aptitude update,you'll then get an error regarding the 'key'.
Install the key with:

Code:
aptitude install debian-backports-keyring
Then run aptitude update again,you should now have no errors.
Install the plugin with:

Code:
aptitude -t lenny-backports install flashplugin-nonfree

the trooper, you are a gentleman and a scholar. That worked a treat. Now if you can give me some hints to get BBC's iPlayer to work on my iceweasel. Is RealPlayer the only way? As it never aesthetically fitted the browser screen as well as other distros even with the 32 bit Lenny.

I would love to find some reading material dedicated to Debian packages and how to work with sources.list

Yes, your are correct. BBC iPlayer is working!

Once again, thanks a lot and Happy Christmas!

Hi, just thought I ask. I am noticing when playing flash movies I cannot get a full screen which I could with other distros. Do you think this has more to do with iceweasel or the flash player?
