View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Hwot upgrade Flash

November 11th, 2008, 02:30 PM
about: plugins (about:plugins) in Firefox says I'm running Shockwave Flash 9.0 r124. Currently sound in flash has stopped working. How can I upgrade to the latest flash and have sound?

All links I find who's similar to this one seems very outdated.

i assume you are using hardy as in your sig? ..if so:

open synaptic and search for flashplugin-nonfree, right click on it and choose "mark for complete removal".

do the same for libflashsupport and gnash.

after those are uninstalled, search for "adobe-flashplugin"

install it and you should be set.

"adobe-flashplugin" doesn't show up on my install, are you sure you haven't included an extra repository in your install?

Or enable the partner repo it only contains flash from adobe and opera.
There's even a .deb file for linux. Make sure you uninstall flashplugin-nonfree.

Does this plugin have the same issues that libflashsupport has? (Crashing firefox all the time)

Whats up with the iTunes Application detector plugin?

November 12th, 2008, 06:24 PM
Not sure actually. I haven't installed it myself. Looks like it came with the clean install. Strange.

Anyways, even stranger is that no today after rebooting my machine sound is missing once again. Ima is very good and CPU is much better than in flash 9. But how can I get my sound back again?

Got a prompt for an update for Mozilla Firefox today. After upgrading from 3.0.3 to 3.0.4 once again flash plays without sound. Why is this happening? And how do I solve it. Every time I seem to find a solution there seems to be something new causing the same problem to appear.

jaysoun: Really far away from your own thread one should think.

Solved my recurring Flash problem with an upgrade from Hardy to Intrepid. Had some trouble with getting my ATI driver up and running. But after following: Installing the restricted drivers "the Ubuntu way" (http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Intrepid_Installation_Guide#Installing_the_ restricted_drivers_.22the_Ubuntu_way.22) Everything boothed fine and dandy. With working flash, java, ATI ccc, Compiz, SAMBA, NTFS, Google Earth etc.

Seems like I once again (for the third time) mark this thread as solved.
