Opera is often times problematic in handling plug-ins. That said, under Tools, open Preferences, then Advanced, then Content, then Choose Plug-in paths. A window should open with your choices. You can play around here checking them one at a time or several, opt out of Preferences, close Opera, open Opera and see if works.

I had to download Flash onto the desktop and it showed up in the paths window and when chosen in the path choices window, it worked. I can't remember but sometimes you have to reboot to get this stuff to work.

Good luck, Michael

Opera can be a problem sometimes although it is my favorite browser. You might try some of the following experiments to see if you can get it to go.

You didn't mention whether you were running Firefox on the same machine. Maybe loading up FF and getting flash to work there and then activating its flash plug-in in the Opera Advanced content window as I talked about might work.

Opera 9.62 is also out now. Maybe . . .

Then there is the "uninstall and reinstall boogey" rebooting between each operation. I dunno.

Below is a link for installing Flash 10 in Ubunto. Maybe it might help:

Good luck, Michael
