View Full Version : [ubuntu] Help needed to uninstall swf flash player

April 26th, 2008, 11:52 PM
Hello all,
I am new to Ubuntu and I am still learning from the scratch. I did install Hardy Heron and everything is working very well. However I navigated to Firefox 3 and ignorantly installed swf flash player which is not really opening up some embedded videos in Firefox. I want to install adobe flash and I'll be grateful if someone can instruct me on how to remove( or purge out) swf-mozilla plugin first.
Thanks a lot.

sudo apt-get purge swfdec-mozilla
