Which distribution of Linux (there are over 500) did you have to update to 10.04? To 10.04 or from?

Hi,

I'm assuming this is Ubuntu and really you need to go further than 10.04 and update to 12.04 which is the latest long term release. If you use Firefox to watch youtube etc then download an addon called FlashAid which will download the necessary flash versions to run those sites on your browser.

Hope this helps,

Steven

10.04 for Dekstops (not servers) is no longer supported. It is highly advisable to upgrade, as said above, to 12.04 if you wish to stay with Ubuntu LTS.

Have you tried getting it directly from Adobe?

Try this:
  1. Download the *.tar.gz file from Adobe.
  2. Uncompress the file.
  3. cd into the new directory.
  4. As root, copy libflashplayer.so into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (for Firefox, or to the appropriate directory for the browser of your choice).

This method has never failed me.

Did you update or did you do a clean install?

What browser are you using? Chrome (from google) has pepperflash built in so it may be worth your while installing that and seeing if you can use YouTube and play games using Chrome.
