You have not mentioned which Operating System do you use.
Are you using Ubuntu ?
If Yes. Then there are 2 ways

Do you have internet connection ?
If yes. Then go to software center
- Then type "flashplugin-installer"
- After you find click install.

Another option is

Open a terminal CTRL+ALT+T and enter

-------------------------------------------------------------------
apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
-------------------------------------------------------------------

assuming you are running ubuntu

This installs flash player and more see here for details
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats

What is the output of:

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

Thanks

Copy the command and paste it to terminal, don't try and retype it. That is why I give the exact command.
