Please give the output of this terminal command:

lsb_release -crd; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'

Thanks

There is a difference between the two request.
You gave actionparsnip answer.
Could you give marcobra request.

lsb_release -crd; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'

There will be a different answer.

You might want to install: Gnash SWF Viewer, from Ubundu Software Center.

sudo apt-get --purge remove flashplugin-downloader flashplugin-installer
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
