Default Upgrading Flash - 12-27-2011, 06:50 AM

Hey hey,

Just bought a Mini 9 running Ubuntu 8.04 and want to upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Flash. Do I need to move to a later version of the operating system?

Thanks for humoring a newbie.

If you look in Administrative, System, Package Manager & search for Flash you should find 'flashplugin-installer'. Just click on it & then click on the green check mark which is apply. That will install flash for you.

Got the "install_flash_player_10_linux_tar.gz" through the Package Manager, but still no dice. Adobe says Ubuntu 10 is required...

Considering an OS upgrade. Any reason why I shouldn't take this route?

Are you going to do a clean install? If you chose my release (10.04) you will need to connect via Ethernet to get the Broadcom wireless driver downloaded. I think 10.10 to 11.10 have it included. You can try out any releases before installing & if you like it, then install. It will run off your thumb drive & is a bit slow to boot up. Make sure you have you boot sequence set in BIOS so USB boot is 1st & legacy is enabled.

Just in case you needed a link.
