Hello,
Where can I find the command codes for all upgrades(ex;adobe)? Also, where can I find the instructions on how to configure compiz?

Thanks

What do you mean by that? sorry... With Synaptic/apt/aptitude must be enough...

Search for "installing compiz ubuntu"... you may find a lot of tutorials about that... Usually the only thing you need is how to setup your video card and enable composite in your X11 config file. The rest is pretty easy...

Can anyone help me with this? All I need is to add adobe flash. I tried add and remove programs but its not coming up. Is there a command line for this?

Thanks

theres a CLI for everything, but i don't have a clue about that. why not just download from Synaptic Package Manager?

System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager

I know about the Synaptic Package Manager. I did all my updates when I first install. That is my point I look for adobe flash player in Synaptic Package Manager and I could find it. Is there a different name for adobe flash?

I did notice when I went to websites that require a flash player. They ask to install plugins with three different types of flash players including adobe. I tired all three and in they still didn't work.

It is not working. This what I am receiving:

mike@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg-iflash_player_10_linux.deb
sudo: dpkg-iflash_player_10_linux.deb: command not found
mike@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg -i install_flash_player_10_linux.deb

Nothing is working.
Hi, you should be able to install the adobe flash plugin by opening a terminal and installing with

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

Open a terminal

sudo aptitude search flash

This will give you the exact package name for your Ubuntu version among similar others. Then

sudo aptitude install <package name> (without <>)

This will install the flash-plugin you need.

Can do the same from Synaptic, typing "flash" in Search field.


Edit: I hadn't seen the last post. I agree.
