G'day from Australia!

Ok - so I'm almsot sold on ubuntu 7.1 but....

Firefox is missing a plugin - Flash - and the auto loader thingy doesn't work. I'm a complete noob who strugles to put the tooth paste onto the right tooth brush each morning so keep it in simple terms please.

I tried the synaptics manager thing and it didn't find anything. Can someone point me in the right direction?

The error I get is flash-free something or other not available...
Cheers fellas! (lady's included in that)

For the flash issue, make sure the multiverse repository is enabled and then search for ubuntu-restricted-extras and install that.


flash, mozilla, plugin
