    Latest Flashplayer Version Not Downloading

    D12345678910

      OS - Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit

      Browser - Firefox 22.0
      Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0

      Adobe Flash Player version 11.2.202.297 is supposedly the latest version.

       

      But if I go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ and select .tar.gz for other Linux from the picklist it gives me 11.2.202.291 which sites like pogo, and even the Firefox built-in plugin version checker (in Tools -> Add-ons, the link that says Check to see if your plugins are up to date), all claim is outdated.

       

      If I instead go to

      http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

      and select

      Linux (64-bit) then

      Flash Player 11.2 for Ubuntu (apt) and click the Download Now button,

      it won't download anything, even though the page says:

      Thank you. Your download will start automatically.

      If it does not start, click here for troubleshooting Flash Player Windows installation.
      If a dialog box appears with the option to run or save, click run.
      For additional Flash Player help and support, click here.

       

       

      Well, the instructions for troubleshooting Windows installation aren't much help in Ubuntu,

      there is no popup/prompt for run or save, and

      the final click here eventually brings me to these forums.

       

      So,

      1) why is the install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz available from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ not the latest version?

      (i.e. it's 11.2.202.291 instead of 11.2.202.297)

      and

      2) why isn't there an install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.apt file for Ubuntu and other Debian kernels available from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ like there is for yum and redhat package manager (rpm) based linux versions?

      (which is actually redundant, since yum will install .rpm packages.)

       

      Thanks.
