Which flashplayer and what exactly are you trying to do?

Here's the old school way, as long as you don't mind using Adobe: Download the tar.gz from Adobe, decompress it, and, as root, copy libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for Firefox or whatever the appropriate plugin directory is for your browser, then restart the browser and test.

What version of lubuntu are you using?
If it's an older version it may be unsupported.
