          My Ubuntu is a virtual machine so I've had nothing but trouble getting it to install, because of a recognition problem with the virtual optical disc drive and HD configuration, but....

          There is a procedure of Manual Installation of Adobe Flash Player on Ubuntu, follow these steps :


          1. Open http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/
          2. Choose Linux 32-bit on Step 1
          3. Choose Flash Player 11.2 (tar.gz) on Step 2, download the file
          4. Once download is complete, right click on the flie (tar.gz) and click on "Extract here"
          5. Launch Terminal (Keyboard Shortcut : Ctrl+Alt+T)
          6. Go to that location where you extracted the file
          7. Run this command : sudo mv libflashplayer.so \/usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins
          8. Launch Mozilla Firefox and check do you have Adobe Flash Player
