Hello,

In Ubuntu you find a lot of applications available in the "Ubuntu Software Center".
So you open the "Applications" menu, then select "Ubuntu Software Center".

After that, the easier way is to type the name of what you are looking for as search keyword.
In this case type flash, you will find it. Then it is downloaded from the closest Ubuntu repo and will install itself.

If you don't know Ubuntu, it's the most simple way to install applications, and it's cool because you don't
have to risk downloads from sites that you know nothing about.

Regards
Enrico

Can you give the output of:

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

Thanks
