Adobe Flash 9 64-bit Kubuntu 7.10


First of all I've got this:
uname -a
Linux SDI 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Tue Feb 12 02:46:46 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Apparently there's a problem with installing flash player 9 on the 64-bit Kubuntu 7.10. I've heard about it before but from what I've seen I can't figure out how to fix it. I'm still pretty newbish when it comes to Linux stuff, so even if you've explained it well expect that I'll still have a problem anyway. If you know what I need to do I'd be happy to hear. Thanks!

Are you talking about the flash player plugin?
If so then the web browser you are using is it 32bit or 64bit?
If say Firefox compiled as 64bit then you need to install nspluginwrapper as well to make use of 32bit plugins. If Firefox is 32bit then you don't need nspluginwrapper.
