Running 14.04 LTS Need newer version of Adobe flashplayer to use some things on Chromium web browser. It shows that the flashplayer is installed. I don't think it is a newer version.

The newest version of Adobe Flash for Linux, is 11.2.202.442. What is output of?

dpkg -l | grep adobe

If you are using Chromium, I believe you can use pepper flash. See sites below.

What is the output of:

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

Thanks
