    Problem with Adobe Flash Player on Ubuntu 9.04

    So I just clean installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my lap top and I can't seem to install adobe flash player. It worked fine with Ubuntu 8.10. When I try to install the Adobe flash player plug in for Firefox it has an error message. Any idea for help is appreciated.

    charleskw, I did the exact things but after some restarts playing with other things I tried flashplugin-nonfree and it was able to install. I guess just put it back on your list of things to do with Jaunty for a few minutes then try it again.

    Unfortunately, I can't get Hulu.com to work...youtube works...but I don't want youtube.

    It's in the multiverse. You'll have to enable the repo.

    I can't test hulu.com for you as I'm not in the states. Sorry. Should work. I've not come across anything I couldn't play.

    I'd suggest looking into the ubuntu-restricted-extras package.

    I suppose I enabled the multiverse along the way as well...whoops
    Just fixed my flash problem...swfdec was hindering everything...REMOVED AND VOILA!!

    flashplugin-nonfree all the way!

    thanks for the insight nandemonai

    Ah yeah I should have mentioned, only having one flash player really helps
