How to install Adobe flashplayer on Kubuntu 9.04


I want to install Adobe flash player on my Kubuntu 9.04, but I can't find it inthe repositories.

So I tried to download and install the .deb file (it is indicated for Ubuntu 8.04+ on Adobe site). Using Gdebi I get the message that the plugin gets installed, but then in Mozilla Firefox nothing happens.

What am I getting wrong?

Try this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...dFormats/Flash)

Click on the link for Jaunty Jackalope.

This will install flashplugin-installer which will install flash. Restart browser and it should work.

Or you could install flashplugin-installer using Synaptic.

I had already tried any of those before posting, without success.

Actually, synaptic installer now shows the Adobe flashplayer as "installed", but my Mozilla Firefox doesn't agree!

Maybe I should paste manually the libflashplugin.so in somedirectory of firefox?

Maybe the problem is my installation, looking in the usr/lib directories I see that I have installed both firefox 3.0 and 3.5, and the icon on my desktop actually launches the 3.0 (strange! I made only automatic update..).

However, I tried running the 3.5 manually, but the result is the same, my firefox doesn't see the Adobe flashplugin, even if according to synaptic it's there!

Copy it to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
And restart firefox
