Can you give the output of:

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

Thanks

Will clean out the old flashes, you can then enable the partner repo in software centre and install adobe-flashplugin and you will get 64bit flash

Hi actionparsnip
that didnt work having done the terminal part.
In synaptic it says it is installed but in software centre it is
unticked as if to say it is not installed!?
thanks
John

Did you enable partner repo?

thank you very much actionparsnip

You had too many flash plugins dude. All I did was pull them all out and then install the ONE package to then give you flash.
