Flash 9 beta in Ubuntu Dapper
Maybe I shouldn't do vacations anymore... This time I got a nasty flu two days after my return. Well, slowly I am feeling better and thought I might just tell you that the installation of the Flash Player 9 beta for Linux worked like a charm on my Ubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06) machine.
I just downloaded the archive from Adobe Labs, uninstalled the previous version using
apt-get and put the new
libflashplayer.so file into my private plugin directory. Apart from the
ds@yavin: ~$ sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-nonfree
everything is described in the
readme.txt file that comes included in the archive.
It is really great to have synchronous audio/video playback for the first time under Linux. About time, but hey, thanks anyway :)
