Ubuntu Netbook Remix : flash not working in firefox
 
I just can't get flash to work inside firefox on an Acer Aspire One with Ubuntu Netbook remix installed.

I have installed almost every flash / swf / codec from Synaptic.

I have installed the .deb-file from the site of adobe flash (after solving some dependencies).

Applications on facebook don't load and also on youtube the video-files don't start.

The left-bottom-corner shows the status 'ready'..

try
Code:

$sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree sun-java6-jre sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-plugin
$sudo update-java-alternatives --set java-6-sun

BTW, do you have flash enabled in the preferences from firefox?
no add-ons to block flash, like noscript ?

Everything installed except the flashplugin-nonfree...

Javascript is enabled, java is enabled.

The tab "applications" shows that for an SWF-file Shockwave Flash is used inside Firefox. Changing this to swfdec-player does not change anything.

Nothing has changed yet...

EDit : and yes I have restarted firefox after every change I made

Code:

There is Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_16
filename : libnpjp2.so

and then a whole series of plugins...

About Flash there is :
Shockwave Flash
(libswfdecmozilla.so)
