Arrow Kubuntu 11.04, FF/Adobe Flash plugin does not install

Toshiba Satellite, P755 series laptop,
dual-boot w/Win7,
6GB ram
Kubuntu 11.04 64-bit
Firefox 7.0.1

For every install of Kubuntu 11.04, out of 4, I have had the same persistent and extremely frustrating Adobe Flash problem. I get the update message from Firefox, and follow the prompts to install it, but it never ever works. I never get an error message.

I have searched LQ and Kubuntu Forums for the remedy. No luck.

Please help

You may have to install it via your package manager instead. You may also have to enable a third party repository, not sure though. But that's on the side note; After you installed via adobe's website, go to aboutlugins and see if anything is even being loaded.

Yea I already tried many times via package manager. No help.

Also, I ended the FF session, and restarted computer. I expected that to help.
