Installing Flash 9 on Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft)

I will show you how to install flash 9 on Ubuntu 6.10. After many research that I made, I came up with a very short way to install Flash 9 on Ubuntu 6.10. Many people in the web did many ways to install Flash 9 on Ubuntu. Some of them take long way to install Flash 9 on their Ubuntu.

The following are the 5 easy steps to install Flash 9 on Ubuntu 6.10:

1.) Download the install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz from this site:

2.) Now, we have to unzip the install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz file. In the terminal, type the command below:

tar -xvzf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz

3.) New directory was created to your current directory. The name of the new directory created is: install_flash_player_9_linux

In that new directory, and flashplayer.xpt must exist.

a.) Copy and flashplayer.xpt to /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
b.) Copy and flashplayer.xpt to ~/.mozilla/plugins/

Type the following command:

sudo cp install_flash_player_9_linux/ /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
sudo cp install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer.xpt /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/

sudo cp install_flash_player_9_linux/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/
sudo cp install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer.xpt ~/.mozilla/plugins/

4.) We will delete the directory install_flash_player_9_linux since we don't need it anymore. Type the following command to recursively delete the directory.

sudo rm -r install_flash_player_9_linux

5.) Open a new firefox browser, and type the following in URL


The following must appear:

Shockwave Flash
File name:

That's my five easy steps when I installed Flash 9 on my Ubuntu 6.10.

PHP to generate report

Today, I developed a page which generates a Loan Report. I am using Microsoft SQL Server. It's quite easy to generate a report if you know the basics of Structured Query Language. I am using simple queries to generate reports but sometimes I can't avoid to use complex queries.

That's all I've done today.
