Flash Player 11 Beta (64 bit) on Ubuntu 11.04

EDIT (07/29/2011)

I just found the following directions from http://www.linuxnov.com/install-flash-player-11-beta-in-ubuntu-11-04-natty-narwhal-ppa/

This is how I reccomend installing flash player 11 beta from now on:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer


Here's the steps I took to install the new Flash Player 11 Beta on Ubuntu. There were no instructions in the package (fail on Adobe's part), but I figured it out and am putting it here for posterity.


sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer
mkdir flash
cp flashplayer11_b1_install_lin_64*.tar.gz flash
cd flash
tar xvzf flashplayer11_b1_install_lin_64*.tar.gz
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/
sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplugin.so
