View Full Version : [SOLVED] Flash Player

April 8th, 2012, 05:25 AM
G'Day, Done an update/upgrade yesterday, seems Firefox upgraded as well, when i opened Firefox later and went to You Tube I had to reinstall Adobe flash player (??) so I downloaded the .tar.gz and installed using the code in the readme, after extracting,
cd Downloads
sudo tar -zxvf (file name)install_flash_player_11_linux.tar.gz
sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

Now when i go to You Tube the skin tones are all blue (???) any ideas ?

I believe this is related to the proprietary NVIDIA driver. There have been a lot of complaints about this recently, and some people have had luck with some tweaks.

Google around for stuff from the last few days or so. I can't remember the exact place to find the fix myself.

Temporary solution:

If you use the NVIDIA driver, but don't really need it, try removing it from the Additional Drivers application. Nouveau should be enough for basic usage and non-gaming.
