Flash Aid, or install the package ubuntu-restricted-extras (which will also install some other things like codecs for MP3s and other files). I think you can also get the package flashplugin-installer

What way did you already try? (apt-get, Synaptic, etc)

FLASH-AID will not only install flash, but also remove possible conflicting plugins. You can install both anyway.

of coruse of this is 64bit it may complicate things, I say that if you want flash compatibility use the 32bit version of Ubuntu, it works just as well if not better then the 64bit version.

Nah...I'm using (and have been using) 64 Bit Ubuntu, and I've had no problems anywhere with the Flash Player, either on my laptop (integrated Intel video chipset) or my desktop (Nvidia graphics card).

The only thing I've done on both computers is install ubuntu-restricted-extras (and "libdvdcss2" from Medibuntu...I watch DVDs occasionally), which installs flash player, Java, and a few other things. I've never had an issue with Flash Player on 64-bit.

But yes, lovinglinux's Flash-Aid will install the correct flash, for sure.

Only problems I had on 64bit with flash was when playing videos on sites like YouTube some of the flash buttons wouldn't work when you clicked them. In the end found out that disabling compiz (visual effects off) fixed it...

Since then I have managed to fix it. Lost the original link I used but believe I did this to fix it: http://astoryworthtelling.wordpress.com/2009/11/09/cant-click-in-flash-using-ubuntu-9-10-karmic-try-this/

Yes, that is the fix for that problem.
