hey guys im needing to view a adobe flash crash report, or preferably watch the crash happen(in the code)
Ubuntu 11.04(up to date)
flash plugin - v11,0,1,98
flash aid - adobe beta, from adobe labs
Firefox - 6.0(according to the "about firefox" under help)
i have installed and reinstalled both the flash player and flash aid
is there a way to do this and how?
the player works on some sites and not others is it possible that im up to date and there not?

Hi chaps,

cannot say this will help but it should, put the following in a terminal:

32 bit:

sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-installer
sudo dpkg -r adobe-flashplugin
sudo rm -rf "/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/"
sudo rm -f "/usr/lib/opera/plugins/libflashplayer.so"
sudo rm -f "/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so"
sudo rm -f $(find "/home/" -name "libflashplayer.so")
sudo updatedb
locate libflashplayer.so

then

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

For 64 bit:

sudo apt-get purge --yes adobe-flashplugin
sudo apt-get purge --yes flashplugin-installer
sudo apt-get purge --yes flashplugin-nonfree
sudo apt-get purge --yes mozilla-plugin-gnash
sudo apt-get purge --yes swfdec-mozilla
sudo apt-get purge --yes browser-plugin-lightspark
sudo apt-get purge --yes mozilla-plugin-gnash
sudo apt-get purge --yes konqueror-plugin-gnash
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install flashplugin64-installer

Hope this helps.
