install flash player for x64 in ubuntu

1) download the tar.gz flash version from here
2) purge existing flash :

sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer flashplugin-nonfree nspluginwrapper

3) cd ~/Downloads

4) tar zxvf

5) sudo cp /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

6) restart firefox
7) done!


This is an annoying nvidia bug with the latest Firefox (Shiretoko) version 3.5.
To fix it you need to load the flash plugin before firefox.
To do this you have to find the firefox startup script (mine is in /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/ and add the following line at the beginning of it (be careful to not wipe the “#!/bin/sh” line!):

export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/

Now you can have full-screen videos again in youtube ;) 


Here is how i create a package list with the current software installed :

dpkg --get-selections > package.list

To restore the list after a new clean install and automatically re-install the packages :

sudo dpkg --set-selections < package.list
 sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade

As simple as that!

To enable scrolling with middle click all you have to do is :
edit -> preferences
go to the advanced tab, and check “use autoscrolling

it is working under ubuntu linux 9.04

Ubuntu: first things after install

Posted: 16 March 2009 in English, Ubuntu

I installed ubuntu, now what ?

I asked myself the same question today, after a clean Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 install

So i’ve decided to keep a big one line install command (aka donwload the world!) just to make things easier

Here it is

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get install vim banshee gnome-do-plugins
fusion-icon emerald compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported compizconfig-settings-manager openssh-server
flashplugin-nonfree padevchooser wallpaper-tray wine gparted

i ‘ll updating the above one line command regularly

this is an easy way to download multiple file (batch download) from anywhere including rapidshare with or without premium accounts using command line.

Create a file named “down.txt” and paste the rapidshare links there, one link per line.

Next create a bash file named “multidown” and paste the following in it, replacing the “YourUsername” and “YourPassword” with your data :

for i in $(cat down.txt); do
wget   -nc  --user=YourUsername  --password=YourPassword "$i"

then alter permissions for this fileto make it executable

chmod u+x multidown

and run it


or you can also put a launcher in your desktop ;)
