Yes. I know you have this working now, but for others:


I don't know why, but I subscribe to this bug & always get a chuckle
when I received an email for the bug every time there is a new flash

As you know by now, you don't need flashplugin-nonfree on a 32bit

sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

or download the .deb directly from Adobe.

For 64bit see:
