[SOLVED] Getting Flash to Work in Steam on x86_x64

SOLVED - The latest Steam update fixes this problem.

This is Valve's solution for Ubuntu 12.04.

What is the Arch equivalent of the Ubuntu libxt6:i386 package?  I have libxt, and lib32-libxt.  A pacman query doesn't pull up an libxt6. 

What do?

When a solution is found, I will also post it on Github.

To get flash working you need to download 32-bit flash and copy libflashplayer.so to ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/plugins


Archlinux + xfce4

This solution is what was given at github as well.  For some reason it isn't working for me though.

Re: [SOLVED] Getting Flash to Work in Steam on x86_x64

that's what i did:
installed lib32-flashplugin from aur and then did a symlink. i had to create the plugins directory in ubuntu12_32.

ln -s /usr/lib32/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/plugins/libflashplayer.so

I was unable to fix this problem myself.  However, with the latest Steam update, the problem was fixed on their end.
