Fedora Google Chrome 64-Bit with Flash and Java

By • May 28th, 2010 • Category: Linux

Here is how to install the 64-bit version of Google Chrome with the Adobe Flash Player and Sun Java plugins on Fedora Linux 13.

First, Import the Google Key:

> wget https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
> rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub

Log into root, download the Google signing key, and import it with RPM.

Set Up the Google Repository:

> vi /etc/yum.repos.d/google64.repo
[google64]
name=Google – x86_64
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

Create a yum repository file for Google and add the 64-bit information above.

Next, Install Google Chrome:

> yum install google-chrome-stable

Install the Adobe Flash Plugin:

> gzip -d libflashplayer-10.0.45.2.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
> tar -xvf libflashplayer-10.0.45.2.linux-x86_64.so.tar
> mkdir /opt/google/chrome/plugins/
> mv libflashplayer.so /opt/google/chrome/plugins/

Download the 64-bit version of Flash Player for Linux from Adobe’s site here and uncompress it. Create a plugins directory for Google Chrome, and then move the Adobe Flash Player plugin file into the newly created directory.

Install the Sun Java Plugin:

> cd /opt/google/chrome/plugins
> ln -s /usr/lib/java/jre1.6.0_20/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so .

If you have not installed Sun’s Java runtime, follow my CentOS instructions here. These instructions work for Fedora too. Simply link the 64-bit Java plugin file to Google Chrome’s plugin directory. Do not forget the period at the end.

Finally, Check the Installed Plugins:

Launch Google Chrome and type about:plugins into the address bar. You should see both the Adobe Flash Player and Sun Java plugins installed.

  2. This is unaceptable. All of these basic configurations should be enabled by default. Fedora is moving backwards. Linux is moving backwards. This must change immediately.
