Problem with copy command


I had a similar problem before but I'm likely not too smart. I have Ubuntu installed on my laptop (dual boot with windows 7). I downloaded Flash Player as a rpm file and it appears to have been installed but no videos. From my previous thread I found that I needed to copy libflashplayer.so to the mozilla plugin folder. I've tried to copy libflashplayer.so and in Terminal it says there is no such command as "copy". I didn't have this problem before. How can I copy this libflashplayer.so to where it needs to be to allow me to see videos?

Is there an easier way to get Flash player to work? this seems like a lot of muss and fuss. Thanks.

Why don't you just install the Flash plugin with your package manager? Like this:
Code:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
or with Synaptic or the Software Center.
By the way, the teminal can't find the copy command because it doesn't exist, the correct command would be cp.
