Adobe Flash 64 bits under openSUSE 64bits (11.2,11.3,11.4,factory)

December 17th, 2010 by

Non Free

Dear readers, we sometimes have to use non-free software. This post will learn you how to get the latest flash player supporting natively your favorite openSUSE Linux 64 bits distribution.

Keep in mind that it is preview software, actually pre-release code quality, and with it you will not receive any security updates. Keep an eyes on it, and refresh it manually if newer version are published

So why to try that software ? My answer is simple : it’s a native 64bits plug-in. So it’s interaction with your native 64bits browser, should give you a better stability. My experience using it in the last 4 months is pretty good, no Firefox crash due to flash. (Several pro week or day with the 32bits 10.0 version)

Get ready

Remove any installed 32bits packages

First things to do, remove all actual 32bits flash installed.

zypper rm flash-player pullin-flash-player

Get the lastest Flash square preview

Go the main project page Square
Read the informations, and the Adobe License you implicitly accept by using this software.
Then Download the tar.gz

cd /tmp
wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz

Uncompress & Install

tar -xvzf flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz
sudo chown root:root libflashplayer.so
sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so


Close any firefox or konqueror running, and restart them
under firefox, launch the about:plugins uri

and you should see

Shockwave Flash
File: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 10.3 d162

Have a nice surfing session, if you like flash website .

When I did talk about openSUSE. People came from a few persons in the room to suddenly filling the whole space available for that room.

Howto – Adobe Flashplayer for X86_64

January 3rd, 2009 by

Unfortunaltely no Flashplayer for x86_64 exists. So far. Now the Adobe Labs released the libflashplayer for x86_64. It is very easy to run it on openSUSE.

First of all, you must download it.  Go to http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html.

Then go to the bottom of the page, and klick on “Download 64-Bit Plugin for Linux”. Now you will see an Dialogbox. At this place you can download the tar.gz File to an Place, you wish.

After them, you go to your shell, and go into the Directory, that you have specified in the Dialogbox. Now you type: “tar xvfz libflashplayer-{insert your Version].tar.gz”. After unpacking you will see an file called “libflashplayer.so”.

Now you have two alternatives:

1.)  If you are the only one on your Computer, you can move the file to: ~/.mozilla/plugins.

2.) If you have more Persons at the computer, you move the file to: /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/

After an Restart from Firefox you can use this new plugin.

From the Developers Side the Plugin is in unstable Status. But it works for me very fine. If you would like, try it out. …
