I tried to install "flashplugin-installer" in Ubuntu but it didn't work for me.

The reason that I can't use the Adobe version is because this happens:

client socket: Invalid argument
*** NSPlugin Wrapper *** ERROR: failed to initialize plugin-side RPC client connection
*** NSPlugin Wrapper *** WARNING:(/build/buildd/nspluginwrapper-1.2.2/src/npw-wrapper.c:3156):invoke_NP_Initialize: assertion failed: (rpc_method_invoke_possible(g_rpc_connection))
Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display ":99.0".
server socket: Invalid argument
*** NSPlugin Viewer  *** ERROR: failed to initialize plugin-side RPC server connection

The easiest thing for you to do is install Google Chrome which has Flash built-in. – LawrenceC May 2 '14 at 11:46
Asking for product recommendations (i.e. "what do you recommend for a Flash plugin") is off topic here. The problem below it would keep it on topic – Canadian Luke May 2 '14 at 19:46

i'd recommend 'flashplugin-nonfree' or 'ubuntu-restricted-extras'. The other flash plugins might be ideologically purer (the main advantage) but for most part, the adobe flash plugin has the best functionality.

I get an error message. – user3695 Sep 11 '09 at 23:18
"an error message" ? what error message, specifically? – Journeyman Geek Sep 12 '09 at 0:38
Look at my edit. – user3695 Sep 12 '09 at 0:39
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

Adobe Flash plugin works very good. Maybe you should explain what did you do, and what do you mean by "didn't work" (at all or just some flash objects), so somebody can help you to solve this.

Ok , this scripts automates the installation of flash plugin for firefox and removes the exiting version from the machines and install a clear version of flash and adds a plugin to firefox

(-1). Please explain briefly what the script does. Asking people to execute a script, with no explanation as to what it does, sets a dangerous precedent. – nagul Sep 11 '09 at 9:08
Thanks. I've removed my downvote. – nagul Sep 11 '09 at 12:01
