I have Firefox 3.6.8 on Kubuntu 10.4 64 bit and I have a working
flashplayer installed. Trouble is my memory is bad, I had a hell of a
game finding a version that would install and I don't remember where
I got the following , I 'think' that I finally just put the resultant
libflashplayer.so in "/home/$USER/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so",
but I'm sure there is a systemwide directory for it.


Sorry to be less than 100% on this - if you want a copy of the .so file I
can email it to you.
