Though the Software center is showing that “Adobe Flash Plugin” is installed in my computer, which is a Compaq Presario c700 running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, yet some websites like www.youtube.com is prompting me to download Adobe Flash Plugin to view online streaming.
I ran into the same issue. dpkg showed that flashplugin-installer was already installed but no flash in Firefox. I resolved it by running
sudo apt-get --reinstall install flashplugin-installer
After encountering a problem with adobe flash player not being clickable on cam chat sites I became very aggravated..and it takes that for me to fix stuff I guess.
Remove Flash player plugin from within firefox [is what I use]
sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get autoremove then,
use terminal to re-install flash plugin:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
After doing the exact above actions the adobe flash player problem was solved.
I had the same issue before, on another computer, and after trying countless different ways to fix it (including completely removing and installing
adobe-flashplugin, the version from adobe’s website, pepper flash, etc…), I finally fixed it by using an older version of flash.
I basically went here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html, then I downloaded 11.1 (no real reason why, it’s just because I didn’t want to try each version, so I decided that it would be better to have a version too old, than to have to download test each one).
flashplugin-installer again, then I extracted the archive, went to
64bit if your system is 64-bit), extracted
x86_64 if you system is 64-bit), and then copied
After I had restarted chromium, everything worked fine! This should work for firefox too.
