I don't see what any of this output has to do with installing flashplayer. What it shows is that you have many dependency/broken package issues which could be the result of you trying to install or remove something. Unless you can provide more information I fail to see how anyone can help. FWIW flash is pre-installed in mint so shouldn't need installing anyway.

Do like remoulder said:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin
or
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

@jungle_boy: this is unnecessary, especially downloading from a 3rd party site, why not just d/l direct from Adobe? All you need to do in mint/ubuntu is
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin
or
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

both of which will d/l and install correctly the latest available version direct from Adobe. This is unlikely to help the op however as they have dependency issues/broken packages they need to resolve first.

adobe flashpalyer 11 is in the repository go to menu> Administration> synaptic and do a search for flash. one of the first ones that comes up will be adobe flashplayer you want to install the one that says adobe-flash-plugin it will pull flashplayer with it.
good luck

Thanks remoulder;

The flash plugin in Adobe is the same in synaptic (xxx.403), the link that I posted have a xxx.328 version; yes sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin fix the problem.

Thanks!

Thank you all for your input. I guess I need help in resolving the dependency problems. I had just updated my system and then tried to install the lasted version of the adobe flash when the trouble started. So how do I resolve the dependency problems. Anyone able to walk me through the process?

I'm not sure I understand what your asking did you install adobe flash plugin for the repository? if now try that first. your really do not have to install it from adobe.
go to synaptic search for flash-plugin and one of the first ones that comes up is adobe flash. install the plugin and it will pull all the dependencies and adobe-flashplayer 11.

go to a terminal and do the following one command at a time.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get purge flashplugin
sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin


that should do it for you. open a browser and check to make sure flash is working.
good luck

The easiest way I have found to fix dependency errors after trying to install new programs is to use Synaptic (Package Manager in Mint menu).
Click reload to refresh the database of software installed on your computer and software available in the repositories, then use the menu option: Edit >> Fix Broken Packages.
Follow any instructions (depends on what the problem is).

Good luck
