Install Flash Player on Ubuntu 11.04 x64

I was under the impression that Ubuntu 11.04 installed a flash player during initial setup.

Well, I was wrong. After installing Ubuntu on my system and heading to Pandora, I discovered that flash was not installed. I installed the version from Adobe’s site, but that one still didn’t work.

Here’s a quick way to install it from the command line:

$  sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

Restart your browser, and give it a try. YouTube and Pandora should work now.

  1. The newest version of Adobe Flash Player x64 is always in 7machines repo. Here’s what you must do:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer

    This thing always works for me.
    Cheers
