Download the file from adobe. I think is is
install_flash_player_9_linux.bin, make sure that it is excutable:
$ ls -lh /PATH TO FILE/install_flash_player_9_linux.bin 
if it is not executable then type:
$ sudo chmod +x /PATH TO FILE/install_flash_player_9_linux.bin
then shutdown all of your browsers and run:
sudo /PATH TO FILE/install_flash_player_9_linux.bin
You will be asked where your browser is installed, if you're using the
default install you will type in : /usr/lib/firefox
That should complete it.  It will ask you if you want to install again.  You
can answer no if you like.
To check it is installed with firefox, start a browser and type in the
address bar:  
This will give you a list of installed plugins and tell you if they are
Hope this helps.

I guess this is a really easy one:

I am running Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy), kernel 2.6.22-14-generic,

I arc up Firefox web browser, go to look at YouTubes in Facebook;
Click on unistalled plugins, then click on "Next" to install Adobe Flash
Player, I get an error dialog:

Can not find 'flashplugin-nonfree'

It looks like a package is not installed, but none of the commands:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
sudo apt-get install flashplugin
sudo apt-get install flash

Have the desired effect. Can somebody please help me out

TIA, fcG.
