Flash player
 
I download the flash player from the adobe's site as an APT file but while i click to install it shows me an error saying

Unknown channel 'lucid-partner'
The channel 'lucid-partner' is not known


I searched other ways of installation like download the deb file and opening it but i got that error

Looks like you downloaded a package for the wrong architecture. What are you running? i586? x86_64? (uname -a)

I think the wrong architecture message is likely to shed light on the problem. What kind of computer are you using? Macintosh? Computer intended to run Microsoft Windows? What brand and model?

Why don't you install the flash-player from the Ubuntu repositories (assuming that you are using Ubuntu because you have the icon in your post)?

Right, so you downloaded the 32-bit package when you're running a 64-bit Linux. That can cause problems.

Open up the Add/Remove Programs dialog from the menu, search for flash, and try installing the flash-player from there.

Basically, after i installed xubuntu, i have screen adjustment problems in windows xp. The thing that you move the screen up down right and left so you got all the screen. You know what i mean?And what can i do now to "solve" this "problem" with the 32 bit package on 64 bit linux?

Is your screen problem with Windows xp or with Linux? If it's with XP then you'll probably find a quicker answer on the Windows forums.

64 bit Linux requires 64 bit Flash Player. You can get it at this link.
http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/

First use the advise given above to remove the 32 bit Flash Player. Then install the 64 bit Flash player.

rayven18,

This add-on for Firefox,FLASH-AID, will "Remove conflicting flash plugins from Ubuntu Linux systems and install the appropriate version according to system architecture.": https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/161939/ . I use it and find that it does an excellent job.

Edit: rayven18, since you are new to Ubuntu, here are a couple of resources for you: http://ubuntu-manual.org/ and: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Lucid .

I would strongly recommend to get the flash-player from the repositories and not from Adobe's website. You will get updates automatically.
