It's been working very well on my machines for a couple of months now. Really glad that they finally got around to releasing it, as the absence of this package was probably stopping some from running 64-bit Linux.oz
I downloaded the 64 bit adobe flash player plug in.
I can't figure out how to install it.
There's no execute file when you extract it.
It's just a file and I don't know what to do with it.
I'm talking Ubuntu 8.10 64bit.
I see the instructions above for other distro's but Ubuntu is not mentioned and there aren't any instructions given (that I can see) even if I were using one of those distro's.
How do you open a 'terminal'?
Does it matter the location of the extracted file when you open one of these 'terminal' things and execute the code or will it find the file anywhere it might be?
Presently I have it saved to my desktop but I have downloaded it and deleted it numerous times and tried clicking on it every which way.
Ok, since I am not using gnome, this may be rusty.
Click on "Applications", "Accessories", Terminal
The commands will stay the same, just change the /path/to/downloaded/file.tar.gz to the path where you downloaded the file: ~/Desktop/whatever.tar.gz.
I found the terminal where you said it would be.
I copied and pasted the text from your post.
This is the result....
daryl@htpc:~$ cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
bash: cd: /home/daryl/.mozilla/plugins: No such file or directory
daryl@htpc:~$ tar xzvf /path/to/downloaded/file.tar.gz
tar: /path/to/downloaded/file.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Wait I see in your code the bit about path/to/downloaded/file.
I thought you were giving me an exact code.
Now I see that I was supposed to substitute the path to the file and that's how it finds it.
I am going to see if I can figure the path and the proper syntax to format it.
Here is the name of the file...
The extension is '.so'.
In the code you provided you are showing a .tar.gz extension.
Do I crop the '.so' from the file name and add the '.tar.gz' or do I add the '.tar.gz' after the '.so'?
Any spaces or anything?
Or do I have the wrong type of file?
