    Hi all,

    Here's another: how to get the Flash Player working in Linux, three different installation methods, via the browser, via a .deb installer and by extracting a tar.gz. package and running a script.

    I hope you'll enjoy it.

    Comments and such are welcome.

    Do you need to uninstall previous versions as I noticed the name has changed from flash-nonfree to adobe-flash
    I uninstalled to be safe and installed using the .deb and works a treat.

    There's an even easier way to get flash in Ubuntu, even x64. Just load up Synaptic and get the flash plugin non-free and install that. Add the flash support and msfonts extras (right click on flash plugin non-free and select). You're done..... Works great on Opera as well as Firefox, x32 or x64.
