View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cannot get adobe flash

December 7th, 2009, 09:33 PM
I tried to get the flash plugin for firefox on ubuntu 9.10. however when i tried it came up as
E:I wasn't able to locate file for the adobe-flashplugin package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package.:Then I tried to go into a terminal and used the "sudo apt-get remove flash" and heres what i got
kitty@kitty-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get remove flash
[sudo] password for kitty:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
any suggestions on how to fix this problem? Thanks.

Have you tried something like this already: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/flash.
Otherwise, try to update your archives: sudo apt-get update.
Hope this helped.
