I can't view any of the pics when I go to the Flickr web site. All I see is empty boxs where the pics should be with small icon in the upper left corner of the box. Any idea why this is happening ?

The link to the site is : http://www.flickr.com/

check your flash plug ins, install from synaptic

Adobe flash-pugin is already selected in synaptic. Flash plugin-installer is not. I'm not sure if I should select both. Please advise.

You would want to look for flash-plugin-nonfree. Be sure it is installed.

Installed the file as instructed but no change. I still see empty boxes with icons. I noticed the progress wheel (if that's what it's called) just keeps spinning. I waited like 2 min but no pics. Any other suggestions ?

it could be a Java thing, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

I typed the following command into the terminal and it ran fine :

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

However, it did not fix the problem of not seeing ANY pics on flickr. What else can I do ? ...this is a frustrating problem.
