  1. Hey, this isn’t working for me. When I do the apt-get update, I get some error messages at the end:

    Err http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org dapper/3v1n0 Packages
    404 Not Found
    Fetched 3189B in 1s (1774B/s)
    Failed to fetch http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/dists/dapper/3v1n0/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
    Reading package lists… Done
    W: GPG error: http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org dapper Release: The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 2D6CFB44DD800CD9
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    Afterwards I went ahead and tried apt-get install’ing the flashplugin-nonfree package:

    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree… Done
    E: Couldn’t find package flashplugin-nonfree

  2. you need to run this command to copy the key

    sudo wget http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/EDD1E155.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add –

    and the run

    sudo apt-get update

    now you try to run the flash plugin installation.

    hope this helps

  3. Yeah, I’ve followed your instructions 100%, and when I had trouble, I did it again. Merely repeating part of your instructions because you apparently assume I’m a moron who didn’t bother to read them is not helping. Thanks for playing anyway.

  4. try this from flash source code

    sudo wget -c http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer9_update/FP9_plugin_beta_101806.tar.gz

    sudo tar -xvf FP9_plugin_beta_101806.tar.gz

    sudo mv /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.7

    sudo cp flash-player-plugin- /usr/lib/firefox/plugins

    sudo chmod +x /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so

    hope this helps

  5. Which part of the fact he’s running an AMD64 isn’t making sense to you people?

    Chuck – you’re stuffed. The Flash player is only for 32 bit systems. You might be able to get it to work by setting up a 32 bit system in a chroot as you would for FLash 7.

  6. my problem is
    cannot open display: (null)
    Run ‘gedit –help’ to see a full list of available command line options.

  7. thanks for helping to set up kubuntu if I served many thanks
