youtbe videos are not playing on my system. system asks me to install latest flash player. and when i do so, i am getting the response "unable to change to sudoers gid: Operation not permitted"

the command i am giving is " sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer"

i am working on ubuntu 12.10


It seems that some programmes are creating this issue. Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and issue the following (replace user with your user name):

sudo chown -R user:user /home/user/.*

And then try installing the flash plugin again:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

  • upvote for sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer not for the first command. – don.joey Jan 12 '15 at 20:44

Try this

  • Type chrome://plugins in the address bar
  • Click on details
  • Look for Adobe Flash Player connector
  • Deactivate PPAPI
  • Close/open chrome and check it

HTH :)
