[solved]flash install issues in linuxmint 14

Postby heyitsjeff » Mon Apr 08, 2013 6:19 pm

ok,

I'm having some trouble using apturl, specifically downloading flash (daughter likes flash games). I tried using apturl and I got an error saying "nadia-partner is not known".

I downloaded the tar.gz and when I extracted it, I have a usr folder and a libflashplayer.so file. I tried looking up how to work with an .so file and got nowhere.

I realize this is probably a slap on the forehead "oh, yeah." thing but right now I'm a bit lost.

Thoughts/advice?

Try in terminal.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer


It might want to remove mint-meta-codecs but it is safe to let it do that.
