Adobe Flash 64bit Refresh Available For Download

imageWe exclusively told you last week that a "refresh" (I.E. a new alpha version) of Adobe’s Flash Plugin for 64bit Linux was going to be released on the 8th of December and lo and behold – it was!

Download

Download the new flash plug-in @ http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10_64bit.html

Installation 
OMG!Ubuntu! reader and fellow blogger HumphreyBC goes over installation in a bit more depth on his blog, but for simplicity’s sake it’s as easy as pie: –

  • Extract the archive from the download link above.
  • Close all browsers.
  • Hit ALT+F2 and type gksu nautilus /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer
  • This will open up a new window.
  • Copy and paste the extracted libflashplayer.so file into this folder, overwriting the current version.

If you have Firefox installed you will also need to install the plugin to the following folder.

  • Hit Alt+F2 and type gksu nautilus /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
  • Paste the same file into this folder, again agreeing to overwrite the current version
Thanks to HBC!
