This script searches for w32codecs, and errors on not finding them. For 64-bit systems, you want to install w64codecs.

Additionally, you left a "6" out of one of the Java strings, and flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound is a x86 package only, I think.

the script is very simple, just open it using some edit and make and save the necessary changes... and execute it again.

===================
echo deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ lucid free non-free | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
echo deb-src http://packages.medibuntu.org/ lucid free non-free | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:clipgrab-team/ppa
sudo apt-get install w64codecs non-free-codecs sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jre sun-java6-javadb sun-java-jdk sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts flashplugin-nonfree flashplugin-installer flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound

Nice script ... But a really good script with lots of features(along with GUI)is already available in the name "Ubuntu 10.04 Start Script"

Check here for details: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/04/ubuntu-1004-first-time-use-script-02.html

Download Ubuntu 10.04 Start Script : http://launchpad.net/ubuntustart/0.4.x/0.4.9/+download/ubuntu-10.04-start-0.4.9.10.tar.gz

Let me say something:
I'm the developer of the script.The script has been updated to a better version.
Now support for amd64 and i386 are both available(Now there are 2 different versions, one is for i386 and the other for amd64).I invite you to try it.
