Flash player 8
 
Hi everyone:

I am running Ubuntu 8.04 (gnome desktop) and I am trying to watch some
instructional videos but I can't due to I have a message on my screen
that I need to upgrade to flash player 8. I have downloaded flash player
for the .deb for Ubuntu 8.04+ and installed it but I still can't get the
videos to work. I am still being told to upgrade to flash player 8. Is
there any way around this? Thanks.

Mark

The problem here is not you nor Firefox/flash, but moronic web
programmers who test whether you have exactly version 8, and if not they
show you a hardcoded "upgrade!" message. These idiots forgot to take
into account that you might have 9 or higher. Probably they coded the
page a few years ago and never got around to updating their braindead
version test. I have come across such sites several times.

Hi Steve:



Thanks for the info. Where can I get

Shockwave Flash 9.0 r124 and libflashplayer.so? Are they for Ubuntu? Thanks.

hi, if you dont already have it, which I suspect is the case

sudo apt-get install flashplayer-nonfree

make sure you have all repositories enabled in synaptic before you do
this.

and a friendly reminder, list general consensus is to bottom post replies.
