Linux Daily

Daily usage of linux, raw style

Have you tried flash 10? Almost good. Works better than 9 with pulseaudio, more lightweight and  gives smoother videoplayback.

First off, remove flash 9 and libflashsupport if you installed it (if you have sound normaly in flash, without killing or tweaking pulseaudio, then you probably have). Close firefox or whatever browser first!

sudo aptitude remove flashplugin-nonfree libflashsupport

Now finally to download and install Adobe Flash Player 10 , issue the following command :

sudo dpkg -i install_flash_player_10_linux.deb

Done. In Firefox if you type “about:plugins” in the address bar you should see flash 10 listed.
If you don’t like the command line, use synaptic to remove the packages, go to adobe’s site to download the .deb and double click it. But it will take 10 times more time than just copy paste this ; -)

Now, if you don’t have any sound like I did, this will probably do the trick

sudo aptitude install libasound2-plugins
asoundconf set-pulseaudio

But I haven’t rebooted so I’m just hoping the fix survives it because I have no idea what asoundconf does.
If it doesn’t work, then probably this post in ubuntu geek is the place to look.

This post was worth 1h30m of my time digging in google. Goddamnit sometimes linux pisses me off.

And by the way, my last post achieved some notorielaty. Quite amazin. Thx for reading, hope you enjoy the blog and give linux a try!
