The stable release of Adobe Flash 10 is finally out but as always with proprietary components the upgrade path isn't straight forward. For the very first time Adobe provided a Deb package, but only for i386, not for amd64.
Linux Mint 5 comes by default with Flash 10 RC1 (10.0.218). The Romeo repositories feature Flash 10 RC2 (10.0.525). Both packages are named flashplugin-nonfree.
Adobe released a deb package called adobe-flashplugin (even though the filename is actually different) which both provides and conflicts with flashplugin-nonfree. In other words adobe-flashplugin replaces flashplugin-nonfree.
The version of Flash you're running
Installation on x86 editions
Get and install the package directly from Adobe:
http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/fl ... _linux.deb
If things don't work, uninstall the package by typing "apt remove adobe-flashplugin" in a terminal, followed by "apt install flashplugin-nonfree".
Installation on x64 edition
Warning: This is tricky... because Flash is proprietary and it isn't compiled for amd64. If you're afraid to break Flash or if you don't know how to reinstall it on x64, stay with version 9. If you're adventurous, open a terminal and type the following:
Code: Select all
wget http://queleimporta.com/downloads/flash10_en.sh && sudo chmod +x flash10_en.sh && sudo sh ./flash10_en.sh
