View Full Version : [ubuntu] troubles with Flash 10

September 9th, 2010, 09:00 PM
with ubuntu 8.04.4 I could not get flash 10 installed correctly , and I version upgraded (online) to ubuntu 10.04

however, although maybe a clean install would have worked ok, after the upgrade, I still could not get flash 10 installed and working.

I removed ubuntu restricted extras.

and then, following


in particular, from 'lidex':
Try entering these commands - one at a time - into terminal:
sudo apt-get remove swfdec-mozilla
sudo apt-get remove mozilla-plugin-gnash
sudo apt-get remove adobe-flashplugin
sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-nonfree
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
Restart browser.

flash 10 (and BBC iplayer) worked ok, in ubuntu 10.04 that is.
I then re installed ubuntu restricted extras.

still ok.
Thanks lidex!
