Welcome to Adobe Forums.
You can follow these steps :
1) Login with "root" user on your Ubuntu 12.04
2) Launch "Terminal" (Keyboard Shortcut : Ctrl +Alt +T)
3) Type this command and hit Enter : sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
4) Launch Firefox and check do you have Flash Player (http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/)
There is a procedure of Manual Installation of Adobe Flash Player on Ubuntu, follow these steps :
- Open http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/
- Choose Linux 32-bit on Step 1
- Choose Flash Player 11.2 (tar.gz) on Step 2, download the file
- Once download is complete, right click on the flie (tar.gz) and click on "Extract here"
- Launch Terminal (Keyboard Shortcut : Ctrl+Alt+T)
- Go to that location where you extracted the file
- Run this command : sudo mv libflashplayer.so \/usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins
- Launch Mozilla Firefox and check do you have Adobe Flash Player
Thanks again. The link and the tar.gz file points to an image for Intel 386
architecture. I confirmed it using readelf -h <lib-name>. I need it for
Then I unpacked the .apk files of android releases from your websites, I
was able to find the libflashplayer.so for ARM LE target there. If I copy
to the /usr/lib/.../plugins/ directory, and if I type www.youtube.com, the
browser crashes. But the same browser works fine if I browse pages that
dont have flash content in it.

A few days ago I actually had Flash under Firefox and Kubuntu 12.10 working correctly, but some update or other seems to have killed it -- in two stages. First, I wasn't able to play Flash pages on the Flash Media server -- I kept getting the "not available" error. In my attempts to correct that I instead made things worse; now I can't view any Flash pages at all.
I've done the obvious things. I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled flashplugin-installer. I've downloaded both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of that package and tried to install the software from the downloaded packages instead of from the repositories. I've copied libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins. Nothing seems to help.
I'm running out of ideas.
