    I would do this but when I got ready to install Flashplayer, I would go to the REAL Adobe website and download and install the latest full version of Adobe Flashplayer for Linux, I think you will find that that will give you a much better/fuller Flash experience than just trying to install Flashplugin-nonfree from Synaptic.
