Install 64bit Flash from a PPA or .deb

from OMG! UBUNTU! by

With Adobe re-starting their 64bit Flash testing, Linux users are once again able to benefit from native flash on their 64bit desktops.

Installing it isn’t a great chore, as we outlined previously, but if you’re a PPA-kinda dude or dudette then a PPA maintained by SevenMachines is available for ease of use.

Installing 64bit Flash in Ubuntu via a PPA

I used to use this PPA myself so I can attest to the fact that it is a) genuine and b) works. Seeing that it was now updated with the latest version of 64bit Flash I couldn’t resist sharing!

Maverick, Lucid & Karmic users can add it via the following command below. Note that it *will* uninstall any 32bit version of Flash you have installed prior to replacement.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer

Installing 64bit Flash in Ubuntu using a .deb

If the idea of adding a PPA is a little bit excessive for your needs you can, of course, just download the relevant .deb file from SevenMachine’s PPA instead.
