Here comes a newbie who needs help. I hope I post in the right section, I didn't put this in the newbie section because I suspect there is no easy answer to my problem.
Anyway... I have just installed Linux Mint 14 MATE on an older pc, running dualboot with win Xp. When installing Mint I had a problem with the installer. It crashed when starting to show the slideshow during the installation process. I fixed this using
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove ubiquity-slideshow-mint
BUT, I haven't been able to open any flash clip from youtube or any other source. I have read these forums about many different flash problems, (I have had too many problems with flash in windows also) and tried many different suggestions that where supposed to solve the problems. I have tried installing/re-installing different versions of flashplayer, tried firefox, opera and chrome, and haven't got any flash clip to play. I only get a black screen or a symbol saying flash have crashed/ no flash installed or something, I soon don't rember everything I have got or I have tried, but nothing I have done seems to be working, that's for sure. According to the forums sources, flash should be working with firefox directly after installation, otherwise nobody seems to have much clue what could be wrong. Somewhere I saw someone suggesting the installation slideshow crash could have something to do with flash not working, but no suggestion to how or why. I hope someone here could try to help me. Please tell me what more information could be needed to help solve my problem, and I will try to give any information I can. Now I don't really know what to do.
