1) Can I play bbc iplayer on my Acer Aspire One?
Yes,I can! I found out that all I needed to do was download the latest version of Firefox 6 first (it updated to 7 by a download). Following Mark Greaves instructions on http://linuxforums.org.uk
Then I download flashplayer10 before Version 11. Again, I followed Mark Greaves instructions.
2) If so where can I find detailed installation instructions to download and install adobe flashplayer11. Note: I have never downloaded or installed software on a linux laptop.
Comment: I cut and pasted instructions into the Terminal . Its easy once you have the right help.
