Adobe Flash Player in Ubuntu 10.04

Post  WinonuX on Tue Feb 21, 2012 12:44 pm

I have to say that I was gonna switch from Ubuntu 10.04 to something else just for this problem. It was a pain when I couldn't see online videos correctly; they just went out of sync, were too slow and it took nearly a minute for it to go to full screen. But after some searching in Synaptic package manager, I finally found a package to solve the problem. So let's get started.

First of all, if you installed gnash swf player or any player else than Adobe Flash Player, remove them. Then open up a terminal and issue the following commands (for Kubuntu, follow the next one):

$ sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin adobe-flash-properties-gtk

If you're on Kubuntu, issue these in the terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin adobe-flash-properties-kde

This command removes the flashplugin-installer package and its dependencies to prevent any conflicts. In Most websites I visited, they say this package (flashplugin-installer) does the job, but it just doesn't. When you open youtube or a website you want to watch videos, you'll notice that you're faced with the website's built-in plugin, not yours.

That's all. Open up your browser and enjoy! :)

Hi kaddy

No problem! Just wanted to help the community. I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 right now, and this Flash Player was becoming a pain.

Cheers friend
