How do install adobe flash player for my 64 bit 11.04? Also is it stable yet?

Previously, Flash for 64-bit machines was in testing and provided by the sevenmachines/flash PPA (see also What are PPAs and how do I use them?). If you've previously installed this PPA, remove the packages flashplugin64-installer and ``flashplugin64-nonfree and the PPA file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sevenmachines-flash-*.list (* = distro version). Terminal commands:

sudo apt-get purge flashplugin64-installer flashplugin64-nonfree
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sevenmachines-flash-*.list

Then, continue installing the flash plugin as described at How do I install Adobe Flash player?

  • Update: The package name is actually flashplugin64-installer (not *-nonfree).

  • And what about fullscreen FullHD (1920x1050) video in youtube? Doesn't lag?

  • @ Extender - I have no idea about that because I use the 32 bit version. :)

  • @ monotasker - I visited this page > launchpad.net/~sevenmachines/+archive/flash and there, the package name was flashplugin64-nonfree. :)

    Who is this sevenmachines in charge of the PPA? An Adobe employee?

Flash was never completly stable to be honest.

You can install flash player by searching "adobe flash plugin" in Ubuntu software center.
