install flash on ubuntu, firefox 64bit

To "install" flash for 64bit you have to download the right version of the flash player (64bit linux, very easy)
then you have to locate the firefox's plugins folder. mine was in /usr/lib/firefox-4.0.1/plugins and extract here the .so library you just downloaded.

to extract the file in the command line you can use
tar -xf filename
where x means extract and f means filename

Converting numbers to hex in ubuntu terminal

I found out that to insert characters by ascii number one way is to type ctrl+shift+u and then the hex number of the char

To find the hex you can use in terminal

printf "%x\n" 34

to find the code of a char or special char that you have on the keyboard type for example

printf "%x\n" "'{'"
