You should have sun-java-jre in synaptic

Here's the brute-force way. It works because the "install" consists of putting one file in the right place.

Download the install_flashplayer*.tar.gz from Adobe.

Decompress the file.

As root, copy the contents (libflashplayer.so) to your browser's plugin directory (for Firefox, that's /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins).

Restart your browser and test.

tres bien
 
Yah!

I tried installing by rpm but it didn't work, and then uncompressed the tar.gz and copied the lib file on /lib and on /usr/lib and then the /usr folder on /usr and on /usr/local/share and then my flash worked for youtube and facebook games. Didn't know that only searching application directory works so I copied the files through all possible locations and to me it worked on /usr/local/share

My advice is that the tar.gz is the best way to install linux applications as far as the linux is concerned;)
