When trying to use for listening guitar tablatures i get a few second lag between diplay and audio. Also, while playing on, moving the pieces is quite horrible because they are draging and responding really slowly - imagine playing blitz chess like that. I have two laptops, one is using Linux mint other Ubuntu. Both computers have the same problem. No problem when using Windows with VM. What can i do to make flash work properly? Thanks in advance.

Not much. Even now, Flash for Linux is a lot less efficient, and it used to be much worse.

It's sad that this answer is true. Flash is a pretty closed black box. It has never been reliable and it never will - thankfully it's dying a death. – Caesium Feb 22 '12 at 16:25
what about flash alternatives?? – jyriand Feb 22 '12 at 18:38
You could try gnash, but it probably won't work with most games. – mikewhatever Feb 22 '12 at 21:57
