A new preview release of a native 64bit Flash plugin for Linux has been release via Adobe Labs today.

Adobe has previously made a testing version of their 64bit plugin available for users however this was discontinued, somewhat abruptly, earlier this year.

The new 64bit Flash Player, nicked named “Square”,  is available via Adobe Labs for Linux, Mac OS, and Windows operating systems.

Users should note that as this release is termed a ‘preview’ and should not be taken as a final stable release.



Installation of the Flash preview has to be done manually – but this isn’t that difficult.

  • Unpackage the file.
  • Copy the libflashplayer.so file to the plugins folder of your browser:
    • /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
