Flash Player on AMD64 & Ubuntu 6.10 (64bit)


I have recently installed Ubuntu 6.10 (64bit) on my AMD64 (Turion) laptop. I can't install ADOBE Flash Player on it.

Any help will be appreciated.

There is no 64 bit Flash plugin available (yet).

IMO, just another reason to hold off on the 64bit distros. When you have the 64bit distro, and you're constantly setting it up to run 32bit apps, then whats the point?

Maybe I'm missing something, and I leave open the possibility to be swayed...

My PC will run the 64 bit Ubuntu, but when I was researching, etc, I was constantly reading about problems with 64bit vs 32bit, and opted to just download the 32bit, and thus far, don't regret that.

Good luck in getting it all working.

Gnash (open source Flash player) works for some Flash videos, for instance the ads on LQ. It's much better than no Flash at all. You need "gnash" and the gnash plugin for you browser.
