Clicking the video ahead or behind the play point caused yet another crash. At other times the player simply crashed without provocation.
    Untick the option HWDecode in Flash-Aid tweaks to avoid instability. But then you need to disable hardare acceleration in Flash Settings.

    That's because Adobe removed the last beta from their site. You need to click "Check Update" in Flash-Aid menu, so it can rfetreive the new ulr. However, since there is no more Beta, the downloaded file will be the same as the stable version from the repos.

    Results:
    Pros: The Flash player at the Youtube site no longer crashes, no longer has difficulties when jumping through the video's time line.
    Cons: Wasted too much time trying other solutions.
    Keep in mind this is the unsafe solution. Besides, you could simply puth the file inside ~/.mozilla/plugins.

    Re: Lucid Lynx Flash update today not working. Version 11.2.202

    It depends on how you installed flash. You may have /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin instead. If so, libflashplayer.so goes in that folder.

    However, that linux.softpedia.com link won't help anymore -- it's been updated and now contains the same
    11.2.202.228 version that's causing the problem. Instead of that one, you can download this file:
    http://ubuntu.wbac.ac.th/archive-can...ucid1_i386.deb, extract it and use the libflashplayer.so contained there.

    Re: Lucid Lynx Flash update today not working. Version 11.2.202

    I had problems with this too. First of all, there is a difference between "flashinstaller" and "adobe flash".

    I am using chrome, and for some reason Chrome came with 2 different outcomes when I had either one of them.
    When I had flashinstaller i would just go black when playing flash movies, and when having adobe flash, it wouldnt even recognize that I had flash installed...

    So I deledted everything and installed adobe flash from adobe.com.
    Went to a terminal and entered; sudo nautilus.
    Went to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin and copied libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins
    Restarted chrome... Bang, worked like a charm

    Had same problem with flash not working.
    With adobe no longer supporting flash for linux I went to youtube site that tests html5:
    http://www.youtube.com/html5
    I clicked on the link at the bottom which says "Join the html5 trial"
    then refreshed by browser (Firefox).
    Lo and behold Youtube videos would play again!
    Apparently Flash is dying on the web due to Html5 replacing it. Many websites now use html5 instead of flash. However not all websites use html5 yet so this "workaround" won't work for all sites. Most major sites do however use html5 though.
    Hope this helps someone.
    Its a lot easier than constantly fiddling with system files.

    No they don't. Most major sites still use flash.

Click the Script tab, then execute.


    Thanks for the advice. It has put an end to a week of hair pulling and teeth gnashing. I now have flash working on Ubuntu 11.10

    Re: Lucid Lynx Flash update today not working. Version 11.2.202

    For those that are still having problems and can not find a copy of an old version, you can get it directly from Adobe

    https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/ge....x86_64.tar.gz

    Apparently if you want a different version just replace the version number in the link above.

    good luck

    Re: Lucid Lynx Flash update today not working. Version 11.2.202

    Just want to say a couple things for folks still searching flash installation problems. First, I've been using flash aid for a while now, and I think it's really great. I still have trouble remembering where everything gets stored, so it's really nice that I can just trust flash aid to remove any potentially conflicting copies of flash before installation. It's reliable and pretty easy to learn all its ins and outs.

    The other thing I wanted to say, I recall someone mentioned that flash was recognized in their browser as being installed, but still seemed to be uninstalled and not working. I had the same issue with my laptop's lubuntu installation. I had manually copied the zip file from adobe to my /user/local/src directory as root, unpacked it, chose the correct version and deleted the rest, then installed it. It showed up in "about plugins", and in the plugin menu in firefox, but there was only a blank screen - basically a hole in the page where the video should've been. I discovered it was a permissions problem. For some reason lubuntu assigns read and write status to the owner (root), but gives no rights at all to either "group" or "others". By right-clicking the flash plugin file (where I had put it in /usr/local/src - which is owned by root) and selecting properties (as root), I changed the permissions for both group and others to "read", and it was fixed.
