Since I upgraded to ubuntu 13.10, my flash isn't working anymore in firefox or opera. It only works in Google Chrome as it is included in the browser. I did check that I have flash plugin for firefox and so on installed. Everthing did work before the upgrade. When I try to install from adobe's website, it doens't pick up anymore the apt installer/ software center. You have to physically to go and look for the correct program to install flash, but I don't know where to look for it or choose it. Is there a other way like in terminal or somewhere else to reinstall it? Or what can I do?
I don't know that is bug or may be older version like.
download the tar file from this location and install this tar file.
it is updated version of the flashplugin.
I had to do a manuall install of libflashplayer.so to make it work.
This is how I did..
Go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Download the tar.gz from the dropdown list.
mkdir -p ~/src/flashplayer sudo mv ~/Download/install_flash_player_11_linux_x86_64.tar.gz ~/src/flashplayer/ (or whatever your download folder and architecture are) cd ~/src/flashplayer/ tar zxvfp install_flash_player_11_linux_x86_64.tar.gz mkdir -p ~/.mozilla/plugins cp libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins
Restart Firefox and see if it works..
