install Flash plugin on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn AMD64

I just want to watch youtube on my ubuntu linux.

but then I found out it is troublesome on 64bit ubuntu.

Here is the steps I follow on some tutorial online and it works.

First of all, you have to turn on some repository.

double click ./etc/apt/sources.list and turn on two Edgy repository.

And then run this command in terminal to get those 32bit libs

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk linux32 lib32asound2

and then install nspluginwrapper to wrap the 32bit flash plugin.

you can get it by adding repository from here http://www.janvitus.netsons.org/repository/

and then run this command

sudo apt-get install nspluginwrapper gsfonts-x11

Next, download Flash player from Adobe here.

untar it, moves the 2 files “libflashplayer.so” and “flashplayer.xpt” from that folder into the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

run the last command

nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

copy the file which we have just generated npwrapper.libflashplayer.so from

/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins to /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/

Now you can enjoy youtube on AMD64 bit Ubuntu. ^^
