I've just installed Ubuntu 9.04 and am having agonising problems trying to get Flash to work with Firefox. When I first used the browser to look at Flash content I selected some plugin other than the official Macromedia Flash plugin (under plugins its listed as 'Shockwave Flash 9.0 r999) this plugin is practically useless so I've been trying to install the official plugin, heres what I've tried so far, and nothing has worked:
Installing using ubuntu's Add/Remove option
Installing via apt-get (sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree)
Installing via the .deb from the Macromedia stie.
Now all of these seem to install Flash fine, but when I go into Firefox its not there under plugins and I still can't load flash content.
Any suggestions? ideally I think if I can uninstall the other shockwave plugin I should be able to just install the official one next time I try some flash content, but I can't figure out how to uninstall the other one either (it doesn't show when I go to about
