It might help to answer if you start the browser that you use the flash player with in a terminal - just type 'firefox' or whatever. Will it be 'gnome-terminal' on your thing? Then try to run the flashplayer as you normally would.

The point is the error messages for what is wrong may now be written into the terminal. If you still cannot fix it then click and drag across what it says and post it here.
