Flash player install question

Postby rivers79 » Sun May 17, 2009 3:19 pm

When I go to youtube.com and try to watch a video it tells me that I need to download the latest version. When I go to the Flash Player site it says to select a version to download. Which one am I to use?

Cheers,
Colin

The one for Ubuntu is the one you want. You can also use Synaptic and install flashplugin-nonfree.

Thank you exploder, after a restart of the system everything worked fine.

I have been using Mint on my laptop for about a week now and have enjoyed it thus far. I just did an install on my desktop and am in the process of getting everything working.

Thanks again,
Colin
