Ubuntu: How to get a direct download of alternative flash player for Ubuntu (Adobe page launches Ubuntu Software Centre which reports 'file not found')


To be frank, this page is useless: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

Clicking download causes Ubuntu Software Centre to be launched which reports file not found.

Frustrating. So how can I get a direct file download of the flash player?

I would like this as I'm having the video playing too fast problem see by a few others around here and elsewhere and the alternative flash may solve the issue.

Hardware: ASRock 775 G31M-GS R2.0 Motherboard Intel Socket M-ATX 1333FSB (with internal audio) R700 Audio Device [Radeon HD 4000 Series]


Remove the alternative plugin first

apt-get remove flashplugin-installer  

You can download the adobe flash plugin directly from here (64 bit version) type at the terminal:

wget -c http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/pool/partner/a/adobe-flashplugin/adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.406-0trusty1_amd64.deb  

or (32 bit version)

wget -c http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/pool/partner/a/adobe-flashplugin/adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.400-0trusty1_i386.deb  

To install

sudo dpkg -i adobe-flashplugin*  

Alternatively, you can enable in Software Center under Edit -> Software Sources... -> Other Software Tab, and select Canonical Partners. Then you can search and install it.
