Thread: Adobe Flash Player 11 For 64-Bit Linux - Beta

  1. #1

    Default Adobe Flash Player 11 For 64-Bit Linux - Beta

    Wow! Adobe catch up with late 20th Century technology at last and announce a 64 bit beta - See [Phoronix] Adobe Flash Player 11 For 64-Bit Linux Is Christened. I have no idea what Broadcom Crystal HD "support" means in practice, usually Broadcom goes hand in hand with "wireless" and means trouble... though I do hear their server wired cards are fine.

    Question Re: Adobe Flash Player 11 For 64-Bit Linux - Beta

    So far, so good and all seems to be working OK.

    BBC iplayer is fine and Youtube good to go as well.

    I have only tested this on my i5 system using the Nvidia 270 binary blob so this could go horribly wrong on my laptop which is ATI blob.

    after downloading this beta release i noticed a directory tree in addition
    to the ~.so file. copying these files into their respective locations
    under /usr, /share, etc., i now find an adobe control menu in my
    'systemsettings,' allowing me to adjust adobe flash player settings that
    were earlier available only by right-clicking on the player in a browser;
    quite handy.

    Update:

    Well so far flash plays nicely with the ATI blob too, so none of the usual "banging the head against a brick-wall" issues yet. Unfortunately Adobe still can't get their act together and support hardware acceleration on anything other than Nvidia

    I installed the 64 bit beta also and copied the files over to /usr. No problems found yet. I deleted nspluginwrapper and pullin-flash-player for the time being.

    There maybe other threads but this is the one I saw 1st. I installed it the way phanisvara did while I didn't get the control settings in the Configure Setting menu, that's OK everything else works & works well. In the interim I still get them on a rclick in a flash vid.
    When 12.1 comes out maybe the whole of flash 11 will be out. If this is an example I could get to like flash,maybe.

    All that we are arises with our thoughts.
    With our thoughts we make the world.

    I copied them over, too, but while the control for Adobe Flash Player is appearing in System Settings (under Lost and Found), it doesn't work. Clicking on it opens a window with the message "Could not find plugin 'Adobe Flash Player' for application 'systemsettings'Library "kcm_adobe_flashplayer" not found. Hulu works in Firefox, but Konqueror tells me I need to install Adobe Flash Player. Is there anything else I should have done besides copy the files?

    Go to the settings in Konqueror and have it scan for plugins
