you tube does not work with 8.04

Asked by spiepie on 2008-12-13

Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) and 8.04 (Hardy Heron)

This method will install the latest flashplayer from the Ubuntu repositories, for Firefox, Konqueror, Mozilla, Epiphany and other browsers.

    *

      Enable the Multiverse repository if you have not yet done so.
    *

      Install the package flashplugin-nonfree.
    * Restart your web browser. Flash should now work.
    *

      After installing flashplugin-nonfree, sound in Flash will not work. To fix this, install libflashsupport.

I have done all this and still it does not work

any other ideas please!

Hi i am new to ubuntu.
I loaded 7.10 from book cd then after many tries managed to upgrade to 8.04. I have chosen to use the Kubuntu front end.

Firefox is the browser and i am using the 32 bit software on Intel celeron M370 chipset. How do i find out the 'bit' of the laptop

thanks for your help

I have had trouble after trouble so far with Ubuntu and am thinking of sacking it...................but stubbornness prevails.
