FlashTracer in Ubuntu (Hardy) 64-bit

author Posted by: thijs on date Apr 25th, 2008 | filed Filed under: flash

There is this nifty firefox plugin that lets you see the trace messages of Flash files in your browser called FlashTracer made by Sephiroth.

To use this plugin you have to download the flash debugger player.
As you cannot use the provided flashplayer installer in the package, as it collides with the 64-bits architecture, you have to use ndiswrapper to do the job.

After unpacking the archive, find where the libflashplayer.so file is located (probably flash_player_9_linux_dev/plugin/debugger).
Then open-up a terminal and type:

  • nsplugginwrapper -i /full/path/to/libflashplayer.so

(in my case: /home/myname/flash_player_9_linux_dev/plugin/debugger/libflashplayer.so)

After that, hit Alt + A (default shortcut for the flash tracer) or go to Tools -> Flash Tracer to start tracing away!

  • OS: Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron ) 64-bit
  • Using: Firefox 3 beta 5, Flash debug player 9.0.124 (also works for 9.0.115)
