Flash does not install on Opera 9


I have Ubuntu Dapper running. downloaded Opera 9 using automatix. but it doesn't have flash support. but flash downloaded from adobe does not install. Here's the following message:

Macromedia Flash Player 7 will be installed in the following directory:

Opera installation directory = /home/shivkumar/.opera

Proceed with the installation? (y/n/q): y
cp: cannot stat `/home/shivkumar/Desktop/libflashplayer.so': No such file or dir ectory
chmod: cannot access `/home/shivkumar/.opera/plugins/libflashplayer.so': No such file or directory

Installation complete.

what to do?
