I am trying out Mint as a replacement for an ailing Ubuntu system and after having solved an install problem with 14.1 this weekend I just started som use testing (is Cinamon too heavy for old HW etc). To my surprise I can not get Flash to work in 14.1. Everything seem to be installed and ready to go but all I get from YouTube or TED is 100% CPU load and a black rectangle. Even less heavy things like http://www.visuwords.com/
So I booted into LXDE 12 which is also a fresh install with no tweaking. Now flash works right away! It is heavy on the HW so I can only run YouTube at low resolution but it works.
What is going on here? (Same version of Flash plugin as far as I can see...)
