Adobe Flash 10

Postby Sasafrass452 on Wed Oct 15, 2008 8:51 am

Adobe just released the flash player 10, so I downloaded the .rpm file. But I can't figure out how to install it.... I tried following the instructions at adobe.com, but it didn't work. It said I need to be "root" to install it, but I have Mint set to auto-login for my user account. Can I use the sudo command? What exactly do I type in the terminal for that? I can never remember these things.... :P Btw, I'm still using Daryna, so I can't download the .deb file which is for Elyssa/Ubuntu 8.04. Or will that still work? PLEASE HELP!

I think I had to go into terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install rpm

Then I just logged in as root. I think if you just switch users to Root, you should be golden. I just opened the file as root and had no problem.

I don't know if this really helped, but it worked for me when I was trying to open an rpm file earlier this week.

I tried it, but I got an error that said it couldn't find the package. Now what?

You can download Flash right from Adobe and install it. Just download the .deb for Ubuntu 8.04+ and install it. When you have it installed, the old version will be in "residual config" in Synaptic, simply remove it from there and you should be good to go.

I installed Flash 10 final with no problems. Image quality is better and the audio is a much better. No more cranking the speakers up to be able to hear.

Another failed attempt.... "dependency is not satisfiable: libcairo2". But that's already installed. Now what?

Have you tried to remove the old version?

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove flashplayer-nonfree


I removed the old version and installed the .deb file. It's working
much better for me than old version. I no longer get crackling noise
I was getting from some websites.

Yes, but I still can't install the new one. I also logged in as root & tried it, but no luck.

Dear colleagues
I had this problem, which occured suddenly without warning. I did try some of the suggested remedies. But the problem was that although I seemed to be able to successfully download and install the relevant Adobe Flash 10 plug in, my Firefox did not acknowledge :roll: it and it was not shown in the add on section of Firefox. However I downloaded the Flock browser from the get Deb repositries and that now works in that I can play you tube videos. I did try other browsers, such as the Mint version of the Epiphany browser but I could not get that browser to work at all ,and I had similar problems with the Gecko-mozilla browser.

Well, I'm still unable to install Flash 10. I installed a few dependencies, but now the installer tells me there's a conflict with "libnss3-0d". However, removing that in order to install a newer version(via debian.org) will also remove Firefox, Thunderbird, plus many others which I don't want to do. Now what? PLEASE HELP!!!!!
