    Lubuntu Flash problem

    Hello,
    after installing the flash pluggin in the Lubuntu-Software center videos on youtube and other flash contents look like on the
    picture below.(i tried firefox and chromium)

    I also tried Gnash but firefox don t even list it in the plugins after the installation.

    Is there some way to get flash running on ubuntu without beeing an expert.

    Hello and Welcome

    Please provide some information about your computer hardware. Flash will no longer work on some older CPU's . The following terminal command will indicate what processor you have.

    Obviously do what Frog's Hair has asked; but I'm curious, is this a new install of Lubuntu, and hence it's first Flash player, or is it just the latest Flash update that screwed it up?

    I don t know if this problem also accured with the preinstalled flash i can just remember that i installed the flashpackage from the lubuntu-software center one month ago and then i don t cared about the problem because the person for who i installed the pc told me that he doesn t need flash.

    Flash is removed at the moment, i tried lightspark but at the place where the flash content should be shown I only see an gray rectangle.

    The image you posted is very similar to one posted here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/33512...ayer-a-big-bug

    It's possible the same solution may work for you.

    BTW, I don't wish to sound negative but I'd forget about Gnash and lightspark, etc.

    Don't install the Intel drivers into a 13.10 system. Better to add an xorg.conf as described here:

    Re: Lubuntu Flash problem

    I have installed an older version of kernel which fixed the issue. Previously it was 3.11 something, but now with 3.2.1-030201-generic it is fixed.
