Need flash player for web browser

Asked by rajsh on 2009-04-24

By using add/remove application i get this problem . I am using ubuntu alpha

Cannot install 'ubuntu-restricted-extras'

This application conflicts with other installed software. To install 'ubuntu-restricted-extras' the conflicting software must be removed first.

Switch to the 'synaptic' package manager to resolve this conflict

Ok, to open Synaptic go up to the top taskbar and click on

System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager

it asks for your normal user password, not your SuperUser/Root one. While you've got this open I really recommend upgrading from the alpha release but just clicking on "Edit" and "Fix broken packages" might be enough to at least fix this problem.

Good luck and regards from

Ooops, once you have sorted out the Synaptic issue then try downloading the best adobe-player from
The drop-down list in the middle of the page has Debian/Ubuntu at the end of the list

Good luck with this, regards from

Hi rajsh,

It seems you're using AMD64 architecture. Try this one:
- download Flash from here:
- extract to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
- restart your firefox

Hopefully will help you. Cheers..
