Try the following on a command line. Adobe flash plugin is now
installed from the repositories. The following works on 10.04 Ubuntu.
What version of Ubuntu do you have?
echo "Removing previous installs of flash:"
sudo apt-get remove -y --purge flashplugin-nonfree gnash gnash-common
mozilla-plugin-gnash swfdec-mozilla libflashsupport nspluginwrapper
sudo rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/*flash*
sudo rm -f ~/.mozilla/plugins/*flash*
sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/*flash*
sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/*flash*
sudo rm -rfd /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper
echo "Installing Adobe Flash Plugin:"
sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin
