So first i tried to install adobe flash, with no success. Firefox kept telling me that i needed a plugin. so i was going to try another flash player. I had used gnash before, but i noticed it was a new plugin on the list, so i decided to try that. I won't go into detail on how bad it was, but it din't really do the job for me. I really don't know what to search for in the package mamanger. Ive tried to search for flash, but i only get one package up with flash in the description and thats the adobe package.

So how can i remove this? anyone know the name of the plugin?

go the the applications menu, add/remove and install the "ubuntu restricted extras"...it contains flash player, jre, and codecs..
