    choppy flash, trouble reinstalling

    I've just loaded up Ubuntu 8.10 on a clean hard drive. I installed Adobe's flash player, but it ran too choppy. I followed the directions on another post to uninstall using this command line:

    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree --purge

    Then it download and installed another flash program. How can I get this off my computer and try again?

    The solution to your problem is in the Troubleshooting section of Firefox optimization and troubleshooting thread.

    To remove conflicting flash plug-ins and install only the one from Adobe open "Applications >> Accessories >> Terminal", then paste (CTRL+SHIFT+V) the code below in the terminal window and hit enter:

    sudo apt-get remove swfdec-mozilla mozilla-plugin-gnash && sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
