View Full Version : [ubuntu] 11.10 issue with not able to use flashplayer

November 8th, 2011, 09:58 PM
I upgraded to 11.10 as prompted to and all has gone well except that I can no longer view youtube videos etc. It says to download flashplayer which I have done, upgraded etc but to no avail.:confused:

Personaly I always install flashplayer manualy, by dowlnoading it from adobe and copying it to ~/.mozilla/plugins/. You can try that. Before that it's better to deinstall the pakckage version.

I guess this could already be solved but I go through Synaptic Package manager search for "flash" select the Adobe one and then apply. Job done

I can't play flash stuff in my browser until i install the ubuntu-restricted-extras from within the synaptic package manager. Or maybe that's using a nuke to shoot a sparrow..dunno.
