I'm still using the last LTS 8.04. Getting ready to upgrade to the newest version

Flash was working perfect until one of the last software updates. Now all I get is "The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed."

I tried running:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer and got the following message"


Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package flashplugin-installer


If anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated. I'd really like to get Flash working again before I build a new box and upgrade to 10.04.

Thanks

Type about:config in Firefox address bar, then type plugin.expose_full_path in the filter, then double-click the same item in the results to make it true. Then type about:plugins in the address bar, find Shockwave Flash, copy the corresponding Path and Version and paste here.

Ok, I followed your instructions and this is what I get for Shockwave Flash:


File: /home/noble/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
Version:
Shockwave Flash 9.0 r48


Thanks again for any help with its. :D

Download the tar.gz flash 10.1 version from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Extract it and move to /home/noble/.mozilla/plugins/
