Chrome Linux x64 and Flash
Q: I installed Google Chrom in Linux x64 but when I try to open a site like youtube it asks me to install the latest Flash Player. How can I get flash to work in Chrome under Linux x64?
A: I’m a Mozillla Firefox user but I’ve received this question trhough a mail and when installed Google Chrome udner my Fedora 13 I noticed that when opening a flash site, youtube for example, it asked me to install the Flash player.
To solve this problem just open a command prompt and issue the following command :
ln -s /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
Chrome is actually using the 32bit version of Flash player wrapped for Mozilla, the installer should take care of creating this link but I’ve noticed this does not happen so issuing the above command should solve the problem.
Try that and you’ll be all set to use flash with Linux x64.
