    Hello,

    Then try this:
    http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    you should download a tar file in your pc. Extract the content and place it in the correct path as expressed above.

    Regards!

    when i click on 'download' absolutely nothing happens. thanks for your help though!

    edit: my most common error message when trying to install various flash players is E: broken packages

    edit 2: i've just double checked the adobe flash player package on the ubuntu software centre and it says 'flash is not available on this computer (amd64). flash works fine when i use windows, just not when i use ubuntu

    Claus, I think I can get the TAR file of the "square" flash player, now what? Keep in mind you're talking to a total linux/ubuntu newbie!

    Re: More Flash problems

    It means you've got broken packages on your system that are not letting you install any other software. Go to System >>> Administration >>> Synaptic Package Manager, click custom filters and select broken and see if any packages are listed there. If there are some try to fix them and then try to install flash player from any of the sources you want to.

    If you are already getting problems with flash and you are also a newbie, I won't recommend you to install the "square" flash player. Just try to install it from the repositories at first.

    Re: More Flash problems

    Hello,

    thing is that something has broken down your system, with such a way as not allowing you to install some new packages as far as I can tell.

    One thing would be to fix that with the guideline from sikander3786.

    What I suggested you is to install manually flash, in case something else was hindering the process. That way at least, if everything else was ok, you would be able to use flash.

    It might be that fixing the broken packages issue might fix the flash installation from synaptic making the installation process pretty easy.

    Just a query: what do you mean with the word "square"?

    And something else. If some packages are broken I have not understood why you are facing downloading problems with firefox. Are you able to download anything else? Thinking your ubuntu partition is an independent one, I would not like to mess things with other partitions you might have.

    That is up to now,
    Regards!

    Right click on the .tar.gz file, select 'extract here'.
    You'll see a .so file.
    Go to your Home folder, click View > Show Hidden Files
    From your Home folder go into .mozilla/plugins
    Put the .so file there, restart Firefox

    Square is a new (beta) offshoot version of 10.1, and includes an official 64 bit version: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html

    I just released version 1.0.12 of FLASH-AID, which supports the new 64bit version of flash.

    Interesting extension, thanks for putting it together.

    Please make sure you include legal notices (otherwise what you do is probably illegal. I am not a lawyer, so check with lawyers if neceesary).

    1. Adding "Adobe Software License Agreement", see reference on page http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/
    Important: Installing the Flash Player prerelease means you have accepted the terms of the Adobe Software License Agreement. This is prerelease software, not a final release.
    2. Providing links to additional Adobe licenses, see references on page http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html

    "By downloading the software listed below, I acknowledge that I have read and agreed to the terms of the Flash Player "Square" License, the Adobe.com Terms of Use and the Adobe Online Privacy Policy."

    3. Clarify that you are not redistributing software, rather, you include links to download from Adobe site.
    License above clearly states that "3.3 Distribution. This license does not grant you the right to sublicense or distribute the Software. "

    A. as in other thread, it is not illegal (breaking any law).
    B. showing Adobe legal text will make no difference to EULA validity of other actions performed anyway, so your three "suggestions" are pointless
    C. besides protecting a product as an income stream (not applicable here, as Flash is free to non-commercial users), EULAs main function is just to protect [Adobe] from liability arising from use of it's software, so stop panicking: your quote in #3 is protecting them in this case.
