unixnadHi I use ubuntu 10.04 x64 . Is it good idea to use applications ubuntu software center to install adobe flash player... ?02:42
unixnadshall i get x64 support this way?02:43
holsteinunixnad: you can try it.. i usually suggest trying chrome with its installed flash..02:43
holsteini have 10.04 64bit with the flash from the repos on my production machine02:43
unixnaddefaulty but i use sync settings in mozilla so its my favorite browser02:44
unixnadi mean i wanna use firefox02:44
holsteinunixnad: sure.. try it and see how it works you you :)02:44
holsteinif you have troubles, try chrome as a troubleshooting step02:44
unixnadi downloaded file from flash player's site to install and couldn't managed :)02:44
unixnadI installed from software center but Youtube videos seems starts slowly..02:47
holsteinunixnad: maybe you can install chrome as a troubleshooting step.. or a firefox PPA02:48
unixnadwhat is firefox PPA?02:50
holsteinunixnad: to get the updated version of firefox02:50
unixnaddo i have to remove firefox then? or http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppas/14 is this link shows complete process02:52
holsteinunixnad: you update the sources with the PPA, then upgrade FF02:53
unixnadok sorry again how do i update sources ?02:54
unixnad(completely noob at all)02:54
holsteinunixnad: if flash works, i wouldnt bother.. if you say is "starts slow"... flash is just not all that great02:55
holsteinunixnad: at this linke http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppas/14, you can see some commands...02:55
unixnadok i will do that then..02:55
holstein3 sudo commands.. thos will upgrade FF02:55
holsteinOR, you can try chrome... thats easier for you to "recover" from02:56
