sudo apt-get install flashplayer-nonfree
This package downloads the official Adobe plugin from their site and does the job automatically.

I get this when I run sudo apt-get install flashplayer-nonfree:

E: Couldn't find package flashplayer-nonfree



And I want to remove the flash player I have already.

Thx

Note: I am using Firefox 2, on Hardy

go to Main Menu -> System -> Administration -> Software Sources then select the multiverse and universe repositories, then do the sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
