I've tried most of the things suggested on this site and others so far. It's kind of frustrating because this is a home computer and I mainly use it for browsing the internet and watching YouTube videos. When I try to install something that might fix it, it just downloads a bunch of files and says to extract them or whatever. I'm not sure what to do with the files after I extract them. That's probably the main issue: I don't have a lot of experience working with computers at this level. I'm used to Windows, which seems to make most software installs idiot-proof. Any suggestions are appreciated!!
The Flash Player can be installed from the Multiverse repository:
An easy and quick way to get it working though is to just install Google Chrome by going to this link and following the directions: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/
Chrome builds Flash into the browser itself so it means if you have the browser, you have Flash.
You could install Adobe Flash Player for flash support:
The Shockwave player is only available for Windows. You can use mozplugger(a program that lets you "embed" other programs in your web browser.) along with wine and windows version of firefox
then open the /etc/mozpluggerrc file
Add the following two lines to the end of the file:
Now open a Terminal ( Ctrl + Alt + T ) and paste
Now run the native version of firefox and test the shockwave player by visting this site .
