Ubuntu 11.04 (alias : Natty Narwhal ) has got new Desktop – Unity ; Although you can switch to classic GNOME Desktop from the login menu, if you want (for any reason – may be you don’t like the Unity desktop or your computer doesn’t support the 3D effects in unity), but it’s not recommended, give it a try you might like it.

All other features are almost same, so as usual – Ubuntu 11.04 doesn’t include some basics softwares and libraries by default, due to licensing problem (just relax you don’t have to worry about that). Ubuntu Software Center has ratings/reviews and comments, so it will be very helpful in choosing/installing applications. Banshee is the default media player and Firefox 4, the default Web Browser. The left icon bar , is pretty good for launching favorite apps quickly.

That’s enough about Ubuntu 11.04! Let’s come to our point – how to install adobe flash player on Ubuntu 11.04, because you want to surf Internet (having more than 60% websites,...

For Linux, the latest version of Adobe Flash Player is 11.2 which you already have. Sorry, but it cannot be updated to 11.8. Adobe provides security backports to Flash Player 11.2 for Linux.

To install the Flash plug-in on Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail), please follow this process:

Open a terminal window (press Ctrl + Alt + T) and copy paste this line:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

When the Flash Player is installed, close the terminal window and restart your browser.

Adobe no longer provides Flash Player updates for Linux except for security backports.
From the Abobe Flash Blog:

For Flash Player releases after 11.2, the Flash Player browser plugin for Linux will only be available via the “Pepper” API as part of the Google Chrome browser distribution and will no longer be available as a direct download from Adobe. Adobe will continue to provide security updates to non-Pepper distributions of Flash Player 11.2 on Linux...

Well I post this here, in hopes of helping someone. I'll state what was happening and how I solved it.

Running 12.04 from a WUBI installation.

When I searched in the Ubuntu Software Center the keyword flash, none of the options posted here appeared except ONE for a flash plugin for Mozilla. When attempting to install it, I got a dependency error.

Tried installing it through the Ubuntu Restricted Extras from Ubuntu Software Center, however the flash plugin portion of this installation did not work because of the dependency error.

Kept searching and found this command to install the plugin

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

and ran it from the terminal.

Same dependency error with this output:

Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Note, selecting 'flashplugin-installer' instead of 'flashplugin-nonfree' Some packages could not be installed. This may mean...

Not so long ago I was telling you about Fresh Player Plugin, a new wrapper that's currently in alpha, which allows Linux users to use Pepper Flash (which is bundled with Google Chrome) in Firefox and other NPAPI-compatible web browsers.

Well, in just over a week, Fresh Player Plugin evolved a lot and in my test, I actually didn't encounter any major issues: the sound works, video playback works with YouTube and other websites, full-screen videos work with multi-monitor setups, etc. So I've decided to upload Fresh Player Plugin to the main WebUpd8 PPA so you can test it easily and stay up to date with the latest code from GIT.

As a reminder, the latest Adobe Flash Player versions are available on Linux only through Google Chrome, while other browsers are stuck with version 11.2.

The Adobe Flash Player plugin that's bundled with Google Chrome is in the form of a PPAPI (or Pepper Plugin API) plugin and Mozilla

isn't interested

Sadly, Adobe has dropped support for the GNU/Linux version of Flash Player (though security updates are still being provided). However, there are still two ways of getting newer versions.

The first is to run the Windows version through Wine, a software emulation layer designed to make Windows software work on Linux and other Unix-like systems. You'll need a Windows web browser (such as the Windows version of Firefox), with the Windows version of Flash Player.

Or, you could install Google Chrome, as it always has a recent version of Flash, even on Ubuntu. If you choose Chrome, you won't need Wine.

Update: I now know of a third way to do this: Pipelight! Pipelight was originally a browser plugin meant to use a fork of WINE to run Microsoft Silverlight. However, at some point, the developers decided to add support for Flash as well. See Here for instructions on how to install Pipelight, and enable Flash Player.

However, this method isn't perfect; if you...

As you probably know, the latest Adobe Flash Player versions are available on Linux only through Google Chrome, while other browsers are stuck with version 11.2. If you want to use Chromium browser instead of Google Chrome, here's an easy way to install Pepper Flash Player.

The latest Adobe Flash Player that's bundled with Google Chrome doesn't work with browsers like Firefox for instance, because it requires an API called "Pepper" that's only available in Google Chrome and Chromium. A while back we wrote about

using Pepper Flash from Google Chrome in Chromium

browser by installing Google Chrome and manually adding the Pepper Flash plugin but here's an easier way to do it under Ubuntu: by

using a PPA.

In case you're wondering what are the differences between Google Chrome and Chromium (besides the logo), here are a few:

Google Chrome is not open source (and thus not available in the official distribution repositories) while Chromium is; Google Chrome is...

If you want to install Flash, Java, MP3 playback, and a lot of other popular proprietary codecs all at once, install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package instead.

The procedure for installing Flash is pretty similar from version to version of Ubuntu. This page uses screenshots from Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat). You can also see specific instructions for Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) and Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala).

If you use 64-bit Ubuntu, apparently, it's quite a more complicated procedure to get Flash installed.

When you visit a page that requires a Flash plugin, you will get the message that the plugin is missing.

VMware Player is the best application for desktop and server virtualization in Linux. I prefer it more than Oracle’s VirtualBox. In this small tutorial, we are going to see how to install VMware Player in Ubuntu 14.04.

With a virtual machine application like VMware, you can run another operating system inside the current OS. For example, I want to review the latest launched Pear OS 8 Linux.

In this scenario, I’ll be happy to install Pear OS inside Ubuntu as a virtual machine. I’ll be able to use it without leaving my main OS Ubuntu 14.04. Lets see how to install VMware in Ubuntu 14.04.
