Two bits of good news. Firstly, MyChores is finally back up and running, to my great relief. We lost data, but people are being very lovely and just reassuring me they are happy it is back.
Secondly, i just installed Flash player! I have been without it since i re-installed my computer a couple of weeks ago and it decided to become 64-bit! But a little bit of Internet-poking revealed these instructions which worked a beauty!
You do this as root:
su echo "deb http://www.dipconsultants.com/debian etch main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list apt-get update apt-get install markybob-keyring apt-get update apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk nspluginwrapper exit
Then this as yourself:
wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz tar -zxf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins/ mv install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/ nspluginwrapper -i ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
And, just like magic, youtube works! :)
Now i just need to get Skype and SecondLife working properly …! :)
