    Adobe Flash Plugin in Lubuntu

    Hey all, just got an old Gateway Solo 9300 laptop back in business by installing Lubuntu. It's pretty awesome, especially for a beta release. One thing that I was confused about though was installing the Adobe Flash Plugin. How do I go about doing that? I was trying to watch a youtube video and I clicked the link to download it but it gave me several linux options. Which one is correct?

    The correct way to install Adobe Flash Player is to use the repositories. Search for "flash plug-in" in Ubuntu Software Center, and then install it from there.

    Or run this command:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
    Pretty much the correct way to install ANYTHING in Ubuntu is through the repositories.

    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    That didn't work. It said it couldn't find the plugin.

    @OP - goto synaptic package manager and install Lubuntu-restricted-extras if you cant install "flash plug-in" in Ubuntu Software Center. Hope it works....Goodluck

    Lubuntu does NOT have Software Center, it has Synaptic as the Graphical Front End.

    To install Flash Plugin:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin -y
    or

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer -y
    I have installed the first package and both my Chromium and Firefox (latest versions for both) are working fine.
    Not quite sure what are the difference between these two packages.

    By the way, this thread is old
