View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing adobe-flashplugin with Synaptic Package Manager

Pandora won't work on my computer.

I have installed "adobe-flashplugin" version 11 with Synaptic Package Manager. Under "Installed Version" it says "". But in the "Add-ons Manager" in Firefox it says I have "Shockwave Flash 10.1 r999 the GNU SWF Player" player installed.

Can someone please tell me how to get it working with Synaptic?

For Flash support it is best to install the ubuntu-restricted-esxtras package since this package contains a Flash plugin as well. Adobe abandoned Flash on Linux (http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/02/adobe-adandons-flash-on-linux), so no future updates will be available for Flash for Linux, just security patches.

And check if you have swfdec and gnash installed. These 2 packages might interfere with Adobe Flash Player.
