How to install flash plugin in Mint Debian 201303 [solved]

I've just installed Mint Debian. Have always used regular Mint. I thought Flash would be installed. It isn't. How do I install Flash plugin?

Updating linux generic, headers, image

I'm running Mint 13 w/cinnamon 64bit.

I see in Synaptic; Linux headers, generic, and image upgrade from 3.2.0.35 to 3.2.0.39 . Do they hold these back because something may break? Or is it OK to upgrade them?

Does it make any difference?

Adding password for wifi on HP4795

How do I type in my wifi password to set up wifi printing on my HP C4795 printer? I turned on the wifi and it printed up a sheet with my network listed, but I don't see where to login with my password to connect. How is this done?

I'm connecting with a Lenovo G580 laptop running Mint 14 64 bit

For the last few days updates for Mint 14 have not worked.

Re: Lenovo G580 and wifi

I decided to delete Win 8 and install Mint 14 on my new Lenovo G580. The wifi was picked up in the live session and during the install and after the reboot the wifi connection stayed on. It runs great. No problems at all and didn't have to install any other drivers. So far so good.

Re: Lenovo G580 and wifi

I haven't had trouble with the touch pad. No more than any other laptop. If you type a lot, turn off the pad so your thumbs don't get in the way. Did you watch the video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_Yd2jK-7Jg Don't think that will work? Your instructions are very extensive. I may just install M...
