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.
