I have just installed my first Ubuntu and i can tell that it's the easiest linux installation i have never seen. Also the system rest with the essencial SW to work with it and there is no more needs to most of the users. Also you can configure the sources.list to get the all universe SW, and then you can access to the rest of debian aplications. It's really wonderfull.
I have experienced a problem trying to set up the flash plugin. If I have it installed and i try to access to any flash page firefox crash,... well it doesn't crash exactly, it rest hanged off. I I uninstall the plugin then firefox works fine but i see the need to flash plugin installation. If i try to install the plugin pressing the button that appears in the browser, the searching plugin window rest hangued too.
If somebody know what is it happening and/or how to fix the problem, I would be thankfull is he or she tell me.
Please tell me which flash sites works fine without installing flash plugin externally.
I also try to install the flash lib from ubuntu universe (libflash-mozplugin with apt-get) but then when i want to access to flash pages firefox rest waiting and waiting sice i must to kill it. I found this problem whrn i want to use the web yahoo messenger to find you to assist me to configure the gaim client, since I don't know how to create an account and connect to the server.
Then what are the steps i have to do to install a propoerly flash support ???
Originally posted by amimusa the problem is fixed. I ahve added some new repositories and then i can install porpoerly the plugin. Also the automatic plugin installation shown by firefox when it's needed for a flash page.
Hi mate! I'm happy you to find this link usefull. Somebody tell me in linuxquestions (frimann i think)
It's the best page to test the internet connection at the first Ubuntu installation, because there is the easiest way to tune your ubuntu. Also it's explained how you don't have to modify the sources.list, since i think you can say in the synaptic current session which repositories to look for. Universe,Multiuniverse and to add another.
I think that when you use something as Ubuntu you have to search the most automated method, since it is though for that and if you have to go to some text configuaration file and touch waht there are there it's because something it's not good in ubuntu and it have to be fixed.
If you want to hack and play with your system, i recommend you to install SARGE.
