    You seem really angry to the extent you forgot to mention "What exactly the problem??"

    And could you describe the problem? I see people who had luck with a plugin called flash aid. Did you try that?

    I've tried downloading the .deb package from the adobe website but all i get when i try running it is i386 wrong architecture. so then i tried it from the terminal and it says the file does not exist. so i dont know if i'm supposed to change the location to desktop on the terminal before i even do anything???

    Thanks to Alejandro for this nice script.First you need to Download shell script from here
    Using the following command
    wget http://queleimporta.com/downloads/flash10_en.sh
    Now you need to give execute permissions using the following command
    sudo chmod +x flash10_en.sh
    Run the script now
    sudo sh ./flash10_en.sh
