Player 10.1 beta 3 was released on February 23, 2010.
If you want to install the debugger version of this release on a 64 bits Linux box you have to install a current 64-bits non-debugger version first.
After that you can replace the installed
libflashplayer.so by a 32 bits debugger version of this file.
This also applies if you want to install the debugger version of the current release, see note2 below.
This is how i did it on 64bits Kubuntu 9.10:
First install the non-debugger non-free version:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
Check if the flashplayer is installed by typing
about:plugins in the address bar of your browser. You should see something like:
The installer should have made a folder
/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/, go into this folder by typing:
In this folder you’ll find libflashplayer.so, this is the 64bits non-debug version. You are going to replace this version by the 32bits 10.1 beta release debugger version, so in order not to loose this file lets rename it:
mv libflashplayer.so libflashplayer.non-debug-64
Now download the 10.1 beta 3 version from adobe into your tmp directory:
Untar the tar ball:
tar xvzf flashplayer10_1_p3_debug_linux_022310.tar.gz
Now you should find a file libflashplayer.so in your tmp directory, this is the 32 bits debugger version. Move it to the flashplugin-installer directory. You have to be superuser to get this done:
sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
Now the debugger version is installed! Type
about:plugins in the address bar of your browser and you should see something like:
Note1: Firefox shows both the non-debugger version and the debugger version. Sometimes you have to scroll down to the bottom of the
about:plugins page to see the debugger version listed.
