You have to install a flashplugin-nonfree but you still get a message in Firefox about installing the Adobe Flash Plugin when you want to show up a Flash from somewhere. It's strange! :)

This post will show you how to fix this problem. I have tested in Ubuntu Gutsy already. It's OK.

First you need to remove Flash plugin installed before.

sudo apt-get remove --purge flashplugin-nonfree
Then you download and install a proper debian package for your Ubuntu architecture.

    The link to the i386 deb package does n't exist now. You can navigate upto

    and then select the most recent package by sorting it based on date.
