    The "flashplugin-nonfree" is in the "multiverse" repository. You can enable it like that :

    It is a bit messed up. I guess you should clean it up a little, so it looks like that :

    You'll notice that I commented the backports, as I think it is better not to use them.

    I just notice you have the 64 bits version of Ubuntu, I'm not sure there is a working flash plugin for that.
