    I would not use the standard linux flash as soon flash will be gone in linux.
    The better choice is to install google chrome and use that for flash as it has a native plugin called pepper.

    See if sse2 shows up like in mine. New adobe flash 11.2 requires it. If no sse2 support in your cpu. You need to rollback to flash 10.3.
    Google is your friend on how to do that. I run flash 10.3 and Greasemonkey and linterna magica on my older gear that does not meet
    the minimum requirements on the newer

    Shockwave Flash

    Another way to copy text in the terminal is:
    Tab: Edit > Select All > Copy
    then paste (Ctrl + V) into text editor or webpage
    then delete sections you don't want.

    Rmember this is not widnows and Linux is not that simple at the start but once you get to know it you'll love it.
    Here is your solution I just copied from another forum.

    You can follow these steps :



    1) Login with "root" user on your Ubuntu



    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

    This cmmand should install all necessary plugins for you web browser.

    Regardless of what anyone else in this thread has told you, just install Google Chrome. Get it from Google, by googling for 'google chrome.'

    Google Chrome ships with a custom-baked verison of flash in it, so you'll have nothing to worry about.

    I'm not a fan of Chrome, but if you are new to Linux this is the best solution to get you Flash support now.

    Google Chrome is for windows, I don't have windows and I can't find an ap for linux. Everytime I click on the download chome now box, the screen goes dark and asks me if I want to save, I click save and the screen goes dark and the cycle continues.

    Chrome is built on chromium - but it is also available for Linux. https://www.google.com/intl/en_ca/ch...&utm_medium=ha
