What version of Adobe Flash Player do I want?
In Ubuntu - the one which comes from repositories.

I know that the poster is genuinely looking for a technical answer. But I would like to point out something more security related: Adobe* stuff are security nightmares.

In the last month alone, there have been at least 50 vulnerabilities found in Adobe software. A fair high percentage of which was Flash.

Search any security site for information.

I do not install Adobe Flash, Air, Reader or any other software on my computer. I do use Adobe Photoshop, but that is on a computer that is not connected to the internets.

I must apologize for stating that it appeared that OP had successfully installed flashplugin. I neglected to fully read his previous post.

Kind regards

This is absolutely self-explanatory.
Download the deb for Ubuntu 8.04+ and double-click it to install.

**However** this is the proper way to get support for just about everything (including flash).
Type this command in yourself (no copy/paste), enter in your password and you'll be fine:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
Have fun.
