Installing Flash Player on Ubuntu 11.04 – 64 bits


Just installed my Ubuntu 11.04 - 64 bits, and decided to install flash. I thought to install the Romeo-Adrian Cioaba script that I published as
Install Flash in Ubuntu 10.04 - 64 Bits.

I decided to update the script to install the last available flash version. The newer version that I found is Flash Player Square 10.2.p3.

Native Flash Player 10.2 Preview 3 installer
Native Flash Player installer (Recommended, seems more stable)

Give it, execution permission:

$ chmod +x native-64bit-flash-installer.sh


Execute it.

$ ./native-64bit-flash-installer.sh

I commented the line that create a symbolic link to XUL-Runner, because I couldn't find it on my computer. If you have any problem, let me know.

Tested and working!

There is a Flash version on Ubuntu repository. (It is older and I can't guarantee anything about it. But it is there)

$ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

Remove or Disable Overlay Scrollbar – Ubuntu 11.04


I like the normal scrollbars. So when I installed Ubuntu 11.04, I didn't like the new type of scrollbars. If you want to remove it:

$ sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar

If this doesn't work, try this (tips from Joonas)

$ sudo apt-get remove liboverlay-scrollbar-0.1-0

Or if you just want to disable it (I think it is betters), do this:

$ sudo echo "export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0" > /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars

Reboot your system.

That is it!
