Hello all, I have been running the free version of flash player for months on Linux with no problems, but recently it stopped playing online videos. Although I reinstalled it through the terminal, it still does not work.... Also, I am not sure if it even installed properly here is a screen shot of what I did through the terminal(you may have to click on it to see it in full) Btw I erased the original "CPU" username from the terminal. So don't be alarmed if you don't see it in the terminal.
Can someone please tell me how I can fix this problem!
i believe that command is for the older flash 9 plugin. first you'll want to remove it entirely. run the package manager and uninstall all other instances of the player as well.
sudo apt-get erase flashplugin-nonfree
then try the following
sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin
note: i always prefer to use the tar.gz and copy over the libflashplayer.so binary to ~/.mozilla/plugins
hope that helps...
