How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?

Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    Black screen on Facebook Slotomania and can't retrieve requests

    Run this on the command line:

    "sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin"

    that should update it to the latest version.

    Another one is
    "sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer"

    One of those will work.

    I hope this helps :)

    Hi tanis59
    You are probably using Windows 7 64 bit . IE 64 bit is not yet ready to integrate Flash Player 10.1 and you need to use IE 32 bit . You will find it here : Start / All Prgrams / Internet Explorer . Select IE and not IE 64 bit . It will download and install Flash Player on your machine .

    I have installed flash player but on different things it still tell me that i have to install flash player but i can't get it with a 64 bit browser

    Hi msyoung89,

    these kind of problems are usually solved by fully uninstalling (in Control Panel), then reinstalling as you mentioned. I do not know however why it wouldnt work on a 64 bit browser?

    Good Luck,

    I play a game on facebook, and every time I go into the game, a screen says my plugin has crashed. What do I do to fix it?

    Depend on your OS. If is Windows IE, some issues has found on this.

    Try this :
    our version of Windows is either a 32-bit operating system or a 64-bit operating system. A 64-bit operating system can run both 32-bit applications and 64-bit applications.Your browser, such as Internet Explorer, is either a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application. Flash Player works only with a browser that is a 32-bit application. On a 32-bit operating system, your browser is always a 32-bit application. However, on a 64-bit operating system, your browser is either a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application. Make sure you are using a 32-bit browser by following these instructions:

    Windows with Internet Explorer
    To make sure you are using a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer, follow these steps:
    1. In Internet Explorer's Help menu, select Help > About Internet Explorer. (In some versions of Internet Explorer, select the question mark in the upper right corner to select About Internet Explorer).

    2. If you do not see the words "64-bit Edition" next to the version number, you are running a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer. Continue to Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.
    3. If you do see the words "64-bit Edition", go to Flash Player on 64-bit operating systems (TechNote 6b3af6c9) to continue troubleshooting your Flash Player installation.
    Windows with other browsers, such as Firefox, Google Chrome, or Opera
    No official 64-bit version of these browsers is currently available on 64-bit Windows operating systems. Therefore, unless you are using a test version of a browser (not typical), your browser is a 32-bit application, and therefore, works with Flash Player. Continue to Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.

    2. Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any

    Before you troubleshoot Flash Player installation, determine the version of Flash Player you have installed, if any. You can see if it is working and whether it is the latest version available for your operating system. Follow these steps:
    1. Go to If you have already successfully installed Flash Player, the page displays the Adobe Flash Player version as shown in the following image:
      Note: The version number in this example might be different than the version you have installed.

      If you have not successfully installed Flash Player, you will not see the image.
    1. The same page has a table that shows the latest Flash Player version available for your operating system (for example, Windows or Macintosh) and your browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox). If the version information shown in step 1 does not match the latest version shown in the table, upgrade to the latest version. To upgrade, continue to Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player.
    Note:Internet Explorer uses a different Flash Player than other browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome. Therefore, if you sometimes use Internet Explorer and sometimes use another browser, you might have installed a different version of Flash Player for Internet Explorer than for other browsers.
    3. Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player

    Before you install Flash Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous Flash Player versions and restart your computer. Follow these steps:
    1. Uninstall all previous Flash Player versions and restart your computer. For Flash Player uninstall instructions, see Uninstall Flash Player (TechNote tn_14157).
    2. Restart your computer after uninstalling.
    3. If you are using Internet Explorer, continue to Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings. Otherwise, continue to Download and install Adobe Flash Player.

    4. Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings (skip for other browsers)

    Make sure that Internet Explorer security default level is set to Medium. This level allows viewing ActiveX controls, such as Flash Player. To set browser security to Medium, perform the following steps:
    1. Open Internet Explorer.
    2. Choose Tools > Internet Options.
    3. Select the Security tab.
    4. Select Trusted Sites zone.
    5. Select the Default Level button. (If the Default Level button is dimmed, continue to the next step).
    6. Move the slider until the security level is Medium.
    7. Select Apply.
    8. Select the Internet zone.
    9. Repeat steps 5 - 7. When done, select OK.

    I have a windows 7 64 bit version. I cannot install adobe flash player. can i install a32 bit version to accomodate adobe flash player, if so how?

    There isn't a 64-bit version of Flash Player (at least not yet).
    While IE8 64-bit is your default browser, Flash content should open in IE8 32-bit.

    I need to change the settings on my computer from 32 bit to 64 bit so I can install Adobe Flash Player to play video clips in Real Player. What is the best & easiest way to do this?

    It is not the settings that change Windows from 32 to 64 bits. It is the Windows Operating System and the PC/laptop that too has to be 32 or 64 bits. You can install 32 bits Adobe Player from the net.

    Flash player 9 on suse 10.1

    NOTE: Since many proprietary video codecs, flash player etc.. are not available for 64-bit platforms, it is difficult to configure 64-bit machines for a complete multimedia experience. Hence it is advised that users new to linux use the 32-bit version of SUSE (32-bit SUSE works fine on 64-bit AMD machines)

    Way to check would be open a terminal
    type uname -a

    If you use 32-bit Follow this page -
    I use ubuntu and to be able to compile flash you need dependencies to be met.
    If you need more help, ask.
