Press the Windows Key on your keyboard, also known as the "Super". Type the word "soft" without quotes and press enter. After the Ubuntu software center has completed loading. Type the word "gnash" without quotes and look at the screen. There are two choices. Unless you are using Kubuntu, don't install the one designed for KDE.

There can be a noticeable mismatch when files are being transferred to a USB device and their apparent progress as it's shown on-screen. If your USB drive has an indicator light, check that it has actually stopped flashing or otherwise indicates that the transfer is complete. One way I've found to ensure large files are transferred is to use eject option ...

I believe I understand the problem, to a point, and I, for one, overcame it. By the way, if anyone down-votes this "answer" I'll delete it, and then there will be one fewer post on this site that actually helps people. I'm a little touchy on this subject because of the two down-votes I received the last time I posted this solution, which you can read ...

This is a guess, but I think you need to activate Canonical Partner and then do: sudo apt-get install --reinstall flashplugin-installer

You may want to try something like pipelight sudo apt-get install pipelight pipelight-plugin --enable flash This has the advantage of also supporting unity3d and silverlight if you enable them, and should be up to date, as it runs flash through wine.

The Standalone Flash Player for Windows can be used with Wine without issue, and actually is more efficient for Flash applications. Unfortunately, VLC does not provide the intractability with interactive SWF files. I have written a test result for this on the AppDB for Wine, here. Note that this is on a Trusty system with the Wine PPA. Simply download ...

i've done some research at mozilla and adobe and tests with both recent LTS-versions (14.04 and 12.04) and i'm pretty sure it is just a numbering problem of the flash-plugin! to make a long story short: if you open in firefox "tools" - "add-ons" - "plugins" respectively look at the mozilla check and you've got version 11,2,202,425 (notice the commas!), you ...

I have increased Flash performance in Chrome by removing fglrx drivers and installing default xorg instead. Even time spent on compiling special build of fglrx didn't help, Chrome GPU process was crashing which results less Flash performance.

As far as I could tell (and I scoured Google to try and find an answer for this, and didn't find one even 15 pages in), there is no standalone runtime / projector / player for Pepper Flash. However, as an alternative, you could use the Flash 15 Standalone Player executable for Windows(AppDB Entry) (or even the Flash 16 beta Standalone Player executable for ...

Since Adobe no longer supports Flash on Linux, Chrome is one of the remaining options that ships with Flash included. You can use Pepper Flash (called "Fresh Player") on Firefox. Webupd8 even commented on it here and how to get it working (the linked article was posted on May 29, 2014 and may be out of date). The plugin may be usable as it seems to be ...

I had this problem on my laptop today, which I had upgraded at some point from Ubuntu 13.10. It turns out the problem was that the adobe-flashplugin package had no updates, but this was due to the file /etc/apt/sources.list having a reference to saucy still for the partner repository. Editing this file and changing these instances of saucy in the file to ...

Its available in the partner repository. If you goto System Settings > Software & Updates, then to the "Other Software" tab check the "Canonical Partners" checkbox. You should get prompted for a password and then to reload. After this you will be able to load adobe-flashplugin using the method in your question. You can also install flash (exactly the ...

You can configure Amazon prime to use flash for web browser streaming via their settings page. It will work with firefox using pepperflash, however, I cannot get chrome with pepperflash to work (Chrome: Version 39.0.2171.95 (64-bit), Ubuntu: 14.10). This will avoid the need for wine, but you still will not be able to cast it.

Obviously some sort of error occurred. I've seen something similar a couple of times. Often what works best for me is to boot the computer to a live cd and use gparted from that cd to pretend to try to slightly resize any partition. It seems the action causes gparted to check and adjust its partitions so everything is corrected.

It sounds to me as as though something is interfering with your internet speed. Several causes are possible. If you have cable as opposed to FIOS, comcast in particular is well known for dialing back your performance if you exceed their predetermined expectations of your "unlimited internet". Other possibilities include wifi interference if you are using ...

I still had the problem, even when I had installed the PepperFlashPlugin. Since then, it has started working. ie. I have been able to play videos on that website. The only difference between then and now is that I now have broadband internet (ie. > 15Mbps). Previously, I only had ADSL (~3Mbps/864kbps)

To download youtube videos without software extensions is possible, seeing as we are using ubuntu and thus have perl preinstalled and the great wget at our disposal. There is a Perl script at Calomel's site that I use for this purpose, which extracts the path of the video file and passes this path as a parameter to wget. If you haven't got wget installed (I ...

Well the flash has been simply locked by its internal mechanisma, and the manufacturer of the flash just replaced it.
