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.


All you need to do is go to the Ubuntu Software Center and install the Adobe Flash Player.

Make sure you disable any other plugins in your browser that could be conflicting like lightspark or gnash.


If you find problems with the installation of Adobe Flash for some reason, you can also download the Google Chrome browser, which includes built-in Flash software.
