    Re: 12.04 Flash Issues -- FLASHPLAYER DOES NOT WORK

    john@landallc:~$ sudo apt-cache search flashplayer
    [sudo] password for john:
    flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound - Adobe Flash Player platform support library for Esound and OSS
    john@landallc:~$

    Is above correct? Is Adobe Flashplayer supposed to show as an add-on or extension in Firefox?

    Re: 12.04 Flash Issues

    Hello All

    I have been struggling with flash on my Presario 2100 for a week now

    Ubuntu 12.04

    When I go to a flash webpage it tells me I am missing the plugin. I have tried a few posts including pasting .so file from version 63. That seemed to work last night but it stopped this morining again.

    Firefox and chrome no work. To not for a while chrome wold not even run it would just crash.

    Code:
    trevor@Presario:~$ sudo apt-cache search flashplayer 
     [sudo] password for trevor:  
     flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound - Adobe Flash Player platform support library for Esound and OSS

    Well done, Corvax!

    I was puzzled because graphics performance suffered severely when trying to watch full-screen videos. Curiously, this problem didn't happen until after I changed from a two-screen setup to a single 27&quot; display. I've been working around this by downloading videos using Flashgot and then playing them back in Totem. Installing Hal fixed it.

    Thanks to you, I got to watch the Curiosity rover land on Mars in full-screen glory.

    Re: 12.04 Flash Issues

    Same problem - I have Chromium & Firefox, Ubuntu restricted extras installed, Adobe flash plugin as well as hal. Still no dice. I tried downloading the package directly from Adobe, but that did not work either.

    I even installed google chrome stable, which should be using it's own flash plugin, but that did not work either.
    Any ideas?

    I can confirm this.

    I did an installation of the ubuntu-restricted stuff
    I also did an installation of the latest flash-player using the ubuntu software center (prompted by the thing you click on inside amazon)
    I did a reboot.

    The thing that finally 'got it working' was installing the hal package.

    Thanks to all.

    Re: 12.04 Flash Issues

    I have been fighting with my flashplugin-nonfree for a couple weeks now. I posted another thread here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2136693 but I was wondering if this thread is closer in subject to what I'm dealing with. I cannot, for the life of me, remove flashplugin-nonfree from my machine! I am running 12.04 on a sony vaio vgn-fe770g. I have tried through synaptic to remove it, I have tried installing flashplugin-installer which would remove "nonfree", still no luck. I am running into the same error code over and over.
    Code:
    (Reading database ... 640508 files and directories currently installed.)Removing flashplugin-installer ...
    Purging configuration files for flashplugin-installer ...Setting up flashplugin-nonfree (10.0.1.218+10.0.0.525ubuntu1~hardy1+really9.0.124.0ubuntu2) .../var/lib/dpkg/info/flashplugin-nonfree.postinst: 38: cd: can't cd to /var/cache/flashplugin-nonfreedpkg: error processing flashplugin-nonfree (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2No apport report written because MaxReports is reached already                                                              Errors were encountered while processing: flashplugin-nonfreeE: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)A package failed to install.  Trying to recover:
    I am sorry for posting this in more than one location, so if mods would like to merge these threads or delete mine, I am just trying to get some insight into this problem.
