After several tests in order to make Flash Player working on Amd64 with nspluginwrapper based on the reading of varies how-to and in occasion of the definitive version of Flash Player 9 I have thought to write this guide, taking cue from the several one how-to that I have read; I synthetize the things that I have made in order to make it to work.
First of all we must install one series of libraries for compatibility with 32 bit
Indispensable is to install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk linux32 lib32asound2
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk linux32 lib32asound2
Installation of the nspluginwrapper
# Alternative n.1: using repository kindly offered by Janvitus:
add the respository and update the sources list: http://www.janvitus.netsons.org/repository/
sudo apt-get install nspluginwrapper gsfonts-x11
# end of Alternative 1
# Alternative n. 2:downloading the last version of .rpm files the Plugin and Viewer from his site and debianizing with alien
sudo apt-get install alien
Let’s go into the folder with the downloaded .rpm files (in my case /home/maurizio)
And convert the packages
sudo alien nspluginwrapper-0.9.91.2-1.x86_64.rpm
sudo alien nspluginwrapper-i386-0.9.91.2-1.x86_64.rpm
And install the packages
sudo dpkg -i nspluginwrapper-0.9.91.2-1.x86_64.deb
sudo dpkg -i nspluginwrapper-i386-0.9.91.2-1.x86_64.deb
#end of Alternative n. 2
Download flash player 9 from Adobe site http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...9_linux.tar.gz
WARNING: At this point, make sure to close every open browser.
Let’s go into the folder with the downloaded file and untar it
the “install_flash_player_9_linux” folder has been created
move the 2 files “libflashplayer.so” and “flashplayer.xpt” from that folder into the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder
at last give the command
nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
if it is all right, it would have to return to the prompt without no messages
in the folder .mozilla/plugins/ in our /home we can see the file “npwrapper.libflashplayer.so”, created from the previous command.
Copy it into the folder /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ [Epiphany works]
and create a link (or copy it) into the folder /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/ [now Firefox works, too]
Now, (if I remembered to write back all steps) it would work,
try going on http://www.youtube.com/
and watch a video.
In my system it works, for stability we will see.
