10.04 Install Flash Player, Get White Screen
higher cpu usage in ubuntu 12.04 than windows 7

I have a very strange problem with flash on my 10.04 system. (An update to 12.04 is not an option, because the system is just too old and slow.)

After a recent update flash has just stopped working altogether. Youtube just shows a white square, vimeo a black one. After a 10.04 reinstall the problem stays the same. Not even chrome displays flash content, just a message that shockwave flash could not be loaded.

'ubuntu-restricted-extras' 'flashplugin-nonfree' and 'flashplugin-installer' are all installed in version

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Ŵhat really gets me is that flash doesn't even work in chrome. And isn't flash bundled with chrome now? –  Béné Oct 6 '12 at 19:05

I suggest you to reinstall Flash Player from official pages

I have recently answered that question right here

That doesn't work either, the flash applet that is supposed to display my flash version doesn't show up. –  Béné Oct 6 '12 at 19:05
