linux mint 18 ship-in software

Post by jaabir »

hi, is adobe flash player and vlc media player integrated in Linux mint 18 cinnamon like in linux mint 17.3 ? I'm asking because i didn't find these in the beta version and without them online (facebook) gaming is very difficult .

Or install them with Synaptic or Software Manager, where you will find just about anything you could ask for. Always the first place to look.

which method did you try installing the software--apt-get, synaptic, software manager? do you get any error messages? if so, share them.
