Install flash player 10 RC on Ubuntu
THIS POST IS OUTDATED, click here.
The first release candidate for flash player 10 is out.
Unlike the previous beta and flash player 9, this one actually performs pretty good.
Fullscreen playback isn’t choppy anymore for me.
Is Adobe finally listening to some of it’s userbase?
Before you install it, make sure to remove the libflashplayer.so file from /home/username/.mozilla/plugins
And if you installed flash player from synaptic, you are going to have to remove it also.
Run this code in a terminal to do so.
sudo apt-get remove libflash-mozplugin libflashsupport flashplugin-nonfree
(copy/paste one line at the time in the terminal)
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libssl3.so.1d /usr/lib/libssl3.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libnss3.so.1d /usr/lib/libnss3.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libnspr4.so.0d /usr/lib/libnspr4.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libsmime3.so.1d /usr/lib/libsmime3.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libplds4.so.0d /usr/lib/libplds4.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libplc4.so.0d /usr/lib/libplc4.so
Now for installation, one command should take care of the download and install of the player.
(close firefox before using the command)
tar -zxvf flashplayer10_install_linux_091508.tar.gz
Please note that this isn’t a final release.
However I haven’t had any crashes yet and the performance is much better.
