Like many others (How do I fix Flash issues?) I am having flash issues with firefox

  • Ubuntu 12.04 64bit
  • Firefox 20.0

And for the life of me I can not get Flash to play.

I have tried:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree


sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

And When I, lets say watch a video on YouTube, its just a black frame where the video should be.

I am running it headless via XFVB, so I am unable to use FlashAid. I want the solution to be scriptable so I can autoconfigure the box via Chef or the like.

Any help would be much appreciated
