    Flash problem

    I have an old Shuttle computer in my garage that runs Ubuntu 10.04 and all of a sudden Flash has stopped working.

    I decided, after many failed attempts to sort the problem, to reinstall 10.04.

    A full installation later, updated to 10.04.4, Ubuntu Restricted Extras loaded and Medibuntu repository enabled and still no Flash

    I have other computers running 10.04.4 and Flash works well.

    Attached is the output of lshw should it help.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    go to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and make sure that flashplugin-alternative.so or flashplayer is there or a link to it. If not do a system search for it and make a link to it into this folder.

    If it is there let us know we will go from there.

    Another thing you may want try is go to Firefox>tools>addons and add the add on flash aid it will install the adobe flashplayer on the system and give that a try.

    Re: Flash problem

    kc1di, thanks for these tips but everything seemed to be in place but Flash still refused to work

    lovinglinux, thanks as well. Flash-aid did lots of downloading etc but the outcome was the same. I followed the instructions in the link you provided and I have been able to get Flash to work in Chrome (which is great and all that I need), but it wont work in Firefox or Opera! As this is only an old machine I use now and then I am marking this as "Solved"

    Thank you both for your input.
