    Failed to install twice. Ubuntu 15.04 has some bugs but this one is a pain in the neck. I’ve been forced to discard Firefox and use Opera instead not happy.

    • Hi ,

      From the terminal first try to install synaptic package using the command “$ sudo apt-get install synaptic” and then try to run “$ sudo synaptic ”

      Once the synaptic Starts and click on Reload option and then search “flashplugin installer”.

    Flash play is out dated in 15.04 and in synaptic. how do we install the latest version ?

    • Open the synaptic and Click on ‘Relaod’ option to refresh the repository then search “flashplugin installer” and marked it for upgrade

      Hope Above Steps will resolve the issue.

    This doesn’t work for me. I’ve tried a dozen different ways to install flash, including the adobe instructions in the readme (extract, copy into /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/) and NOTHING is working. Flash is still not installed. (Oh and I’ve enabled flash in Chromium, so that’s not the issue either.)

  11. Netjera says:

    What finally worked for me – after two weeks of struggling – was enabling Canonical Partners and getting their flash update as per these instructions: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2339506 Incidentally, should’ve mentioned that I’m running Zorin 12 which uses an Ubuntu 16 core, I believe. So the older directions for flash do not work with the newer Ubuntu/Zorin implementations.
