    Re: ubuntu 9.10 flash player

    Ok, so, what command are you issuing to install flash, and what errors are being reported?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    will generally bring in most everything you'll need, including Flash.

    What is the exact error do you get when you try to install it?
    Currently Running: Linux Mint 7, Fedora 11, Fedora 12, and Ubuntu 9.10

    For me it worked out of the box. I only installed yesterday, so I don't think I had to install flash. It may already have been installed.

    For 32 bit simply do the following:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
    For 64 bit get the 64 bit flash plugin from:

    http://download.macromedia.com/pub/l...6_64.so.tar.gz

    Install it in your ~/.mozilla/plugins folder.
    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.

    Re: ubuntu 9.10 flash player

    I've also had a problem with Flash. I tried the two suggestions above, and in both cases, got this response:
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    It also has Synaptic mucked up, returning the following error before closing:

    Code:
    E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    E: Internal error opening cache (1). Please report.

    Re: ubuntu 9.10 flash player

    hey i also have this same problem after u tried installing adobe-flashplugin



    the problem is i can't use synaptic coz it it isn't installed, and i can't install anything AT ALL, i keep getting this error no matter what i try to install or remove:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    here r my details:
    after the flash installation failed, and everything seemed broken becoz flash wasn't installed properly, i tried installing it again using this command:

    sudo dpkg -i install_flash_player_10_linux.deb
    this gives me the following error:
    Selecting previously deselected package adobe-flashplugin.
    (Reading database ... 87770 files and directories currently installed.)

    dpkg: error while cleaning up:
    subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    install_flash_player_10_linux.deb
    so i tried removing it using this command:
    sudo apt-get remove adobe-flashplugin
    but i get this error:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
    so i tried this command:

    but also got an error:

    Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should
    reinstall it before attempting a removal.
    Errors were encountered while processing:

    so i tried forcing it:
    sudo dpkg -r --force-remove-reinstreq adobe-flashplugin
    but still it wouldn't work:
    dpkg: warning: overriding problem because --force enabled:
    Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should
    reinstall it before attempting a removal.
    (Reading database ... 87769 files and directories currently installed.)
    Removing adobe-flashplugin ...

    Re: ubuntu 9.10 flash player

    Get the adobe-flashplugin package from http://packages.ubuntu.com (the same as what's in the repositories) and then put it into /var/cache/apt/archives. You should be able to reinstall it now using:'

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall adobe-flashplugin
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
