    Installing Adobe Flash Player in Ubuntu 10.10


    Hi every one,
    I currently am using UBuntu 10.10, and I cant do anything online that requires Adobe. I tried installing, but I always get the message, Not Found, There isnt a software package called "Adobe Flash plugin in your current software sources" Can someone help me with installing Adobe? THanks!

    Make sure that you have the repository (I think it's in Multiverse, but could be Universe). Use System>Administration>Software Sources and check the boxes.

    You can install flashplugin-installer in Synaptic Package Manager, or it should be available in the Software Centre.

    This program installs the Adobe Flash Player from Adobe.

    When you install the system, the installation ask if you want to install the extra packages, just clic yes and everything works, just for future installations.

    Correction: I am running Ubuntu 11.04 on an Acer 5336 Aspire

    EDIT: I have installed Adobe through Flash Aid 2.1.1, which found it for me. Google is a wonderful thing. Thanks to those who tried to help!
