FLash AMD64 ubuntu! phew!

After solving the graphic card problem I had (did not quite solve it! it just worked…go by the book and restart :P) I thought of making flash work in ubuntu. All the standard ones u’d probably apt-get wont make youtube videos work. Finally, I do what all ubuntu users would hate to do…yeah get the .deb and make install it. But adobe.com does not provide flash support for AMD 64 systems which was really sad. So the only way out was using nspluginwrapper on the flash core packages –>

I found a web-page which has a script written to do it all. But as it says you will need getlibs before you get lucky –> http://meandubuntu.wordpress.com/2008/08/20/flash-10-rc-on-ubuntu-amd64/

Awesome script šŸ™‚ Videos and flash works! Things are good.
