Hello

I'd recommend using the latest version of the 32-bit or 64-bit flashplayer release, depending on which version of Ubuntu (32-bit vs 64-bit) you have installed.

This is my preferred method. It should always work. Just press ctrl+alt+t to open a terminal. Then, in the terminal window, type this command:

Code:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
The system should now prompt you for your system password. After typing your password, it should automatically download and install the correct Flash Plugin from the PPF server. Nothing else should need to be done. To test, go to YouTube and try to play any random video.

Ubuntu 10.04 will reach end of life after April 2013 for the desktop version. See this:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases
After 10.04 reaches end of life the repositories will go offline and you will no longer receive security updates or be able to
install additional software.

You should upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 if you prefer using the long term supprt versions of Ubuntu:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PreciseUpgrades
Or better yet, just do a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04. I always do clean installs of Ubuntu and never do system upgrades. A clean install
is often the fastest and easiest way to upgrade to a new version and it is the best way to avoid problems with upgrades.

Write back if you need more help.
And welcome to the LQ forums!
