    yes just tried this set to 1 and flash will crash
    You have to make that folder and file, mine did not exist.

    I can set it to EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0 and firefox works without any hardware acceleration, normal colors except it looks awful, chrome still blue, does not respect setting to 0

    Try an older version of Flash.

    I'd go with an older flash version but if you wish to disable hw acceleration in the flash settings you must do it in the player while it's in fullscreen
    (scrollbars make the settings box unclickable

    I am running precise beta and none in that list shows 11.1 for precise.
    Do you see one?

    Thanks!
    This finally worked. make it full screen then uncheck hardware acceleration, skin colors are normal again.
    You may have to keep clicking settings, I notice it takes 2 or 3 clicks to bring up the dialog box.
    I cant even show that menu with firefox, only with google chrome. Firefox is also missing the fullscreen box, right click to select that, but the flash menu will not appear for me in firefox.
    I must be not using the flash player in firefox.

    Glad you got it - if performance issues then use an older version & re-enable hw acel

    *was wondering where this thread went to - there was no sign of it in the precise forum when I went to reply a while ago..

    edit - yeah - 2 clicks here to bring up settings in fullscreen

    I noticed something about Chrome, I removed the flash plugin using synaptic. But Chrome still has flash 11.2 installed. I seem to recall chrome was going to do that having a version of flash built-in.

    Sorry. My mistake. I was merging several threads dealing with the SMURF effect in flash and didn't realize one was from the Ubuntu +1 forum.

    Type about:plugins, then diable the version that comes with Chrome.
