Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: mozilla-plugin-gnash

When I uninstalled Adobe's Flash, and installed the latest Gnash from
the Gutsy repositories, it wasn't working.  Firefox complained of a
missing flash plugin.

Upon closer inspection of my system, I found that there is a broken
symlink in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, called flashplugin-alternative.so

This leads to /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so, the non-
free version of Flash that adobe develops.

To fix this, target the symlink to /usr/lib/gnash/libgnashplugin.so, and
have the mozilla-plugin-gnash conflict with Adobe's flash plugin.
