Default Flash doesn't work - 07-27-2009, 04:32 PM

I just installed netbook remix on my Dell Mini 10v, and everything seems to work fine. However, I am not able to install flash player. When the bar pops up in firefox, none of the three options are able to install, first saying they can't be found, then saying Flash was installed successfully, which is wasn't. Then, I downloaded the .deb file from the Adobe website, however, when the package installer appears, it gives me the following error: Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libcurl3

Has anyone had the same problem or a fix?? Thanks

To install Adobe Flash, I'd use "sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree" in a terminal.

Maybe you can change the status of your thread to "solved"?
