I am trying to install adobe Flash Player onto my ubuntu system(64 bit) it keeps saying wrong architecture 'i386' when I try to download the software. What can I do to fix this problem? I am trying to find out what the i386 is refering to, What is my computer running if it is not running i386? (where do i find it?)
also, I am downloading .deb for ubuntu 8.04+ and I have I believe it is 9.04 if I am not mistaken.
up til now it has been asking me for my password to make things that are admin only happen. Now, it says that my plugin properties are not allowed to be changed b/c I am no the owner, so I cannot change these permissions and it is not prompting me for a password. How do I get around this?
The sudo command runs a program as root (or with optional parameters, any other user). Its name means "Super User DO". The cp command is short for copy. So, when you put it all together you have copy the file libflashplayer.so to the directory /path/to/plugins and do it as superuser.
