Hi Tarun thanks for the super instructions! I got to the last and
that failed. It appears the Ubuntu name has changed. I used
"adobe-flashplugin" and it complained "no such thing" but said it was
close to something they have.
All the sudo rm appeared to work. When I went back to the web page it
didn't show the thing to click on but allowed me to d/l the whole mp3
file Which I did and watched it on my Good VLC vieo player :-)
I guess a new name for the adobe-flashplugin is reuired.
