For some reason, I can't get the flash plug-in to work properly. I am running Ubuntu 9.10 x64, which I think might be the issue. It seems to be able to run flash games and videos etc. but it won't let me interact with it. So if I want to pause the video, I can't or if it doesn't automatically start, I can't watch it. With games, it runs, but I can't click on it at all.

Found a fix for it on the forums. I don't get why it wasn't working before, but I completely removed all adobe flash plugins and then used this script.

OMG THANK YOU!

I followed the steps (although apparently there was absolutely nothing flash related in either plugin folder [and yes, i did have flash installed though oddly])

only thing is that it still does the non-interaction thing every now and then, like now instead of clicking thousands of times to get something to work, i just click 2 or 3 times.

I find that Ubuntu still has a bit to go for a lot of things on x64. So for that reason, I dual boot ubuntu with windows 7.
