Do you have to use flash player to play youtube videos?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 18, 2010
I would really like to know if there is something more lightweight you can use to watch Youtube videos. I have an older system. Athlon 1ghz with a 32mb nvidia graphics card with Linux Mint LXDE operating system running the Midori web browser. Everything works fine until I play Youtube videos with the flash player plugin. It plays non-HD stuff okay but when you hit HD it just lags the hell out of it. There has got to be a way to make it run more efficient. Thanks!
Trying to use Zorin. Wrong distro choice? Advice invited from Linux experts
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 5, 2015
Hello Linux experts (because I suspect experts are what I need). Being a newbie I tried to choose a linux distro that I could use most like windows XP in particular, to include apps, maintenance and ease. To me it seemed like ZORIN fit the bill so I installed Zorin 9 on a 500 gb HD and configured a desktop with Cairo Dock (that dock being like the quick launch bar in Windows). So far so good.
Two main tasks I have is finding a back up (clone) utility I can use to clone the entire HD to an external USB HD so that I can simply plug in that clone and have the identical Zorin back exactly the way it was. Secondly I want to install my Canon printer (all in one print, copy, scan, and fax) so that I can use it the same way as with XP.
So far I've been disappointed for both because the clone apps I see available are "dd" (terminal) which does not seem to work and/or if it did the advice is that a clone could take days or weeks? Say what? Is that nuts or what. In windows I can

Flash player on Ubuntu 10 not working after Flex builder installation
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I've just installed Flash builder on my machine, which went ahead and installed the debug version of Flash on my machine as well. It appears now that this has broken Flash in my browsers or at least the browsers have no idea where flash is located on my machine. When I open a browser and navigate to a Flash page I get the message,
"Alternate HTML content should be placed here. This content requires the Adobe Flash Player. Get Flash "
This is from Google chrome but FF is also effected.
How do I fix this to use my installed debug version of flash.
[SOLVED] Having trouble installing Flash player onto ChrUbuntu on the ARM based Chromebook
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 9, 2013
I am on a Samsung Series ARM based Chromebook. I installed an alpha of Ubuntu 12.04 that was redisigned for the Chromebook (The download and install is here http://chromeos-cr48.blogspot.co.uk/...pha-1-now.html).
I installed it fine, got most of what I needed working, all I couldn't get to work was the flash player. I was using Chromium and I couldn't figure out how to install the flash player into ChrUbuntu. I found various sources saying to copy the flash player from the ChromeOS and then paste it into the ChrUbuntu side.
Is there anyone who could give some instructions on this? I love Ubuntu now that I have seen how capable it is on this netbook and I would love to have flash on it so I could use it full time, could anyone help? Any is appreciated!
PS: I only posted in this board since I'm new to Linux and this forum, so if there is somewhere in the forum that would be better suited to this question I'd appreciate if someone told me, thanks again!
Flash Player Firefox vs. Google Chrome Ubuntu Lucid
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 17, 2010
New to the forum and Ubuntu,
I am wondering why Flash in Firefox is much slower than Flash in Google Chrome. Also, according to the Adobe website, Google Chrome has a newer version of Flash installed than Firefox. Why the difference in versions and performance? ookla with Firefox is exactly 1/2 as fast as Google Chrome. Hulu with Firefox sets video to 360p and with Chrome it sets to 480p. I have tried everything on Google to fix Flash in Firefox, some even claim it is a Kernel problem, but how can that be if Chrome is not affected? Shouldn't chrome have the same problems as Firefox? I want to use Firefox because of the Totem, VLC, and Mplayer plug-ins, but Flash is a killer.
Which One to use...... trying to get wide view
location: linux.com - date: August 11, 2011
I had desire to get out/stop using Windows and I hated working on it everyday I worked for more than a decade........ My option to go for was Mac which is might expensive!!......
I tried ubuntu, Hated it for used interface plus it got into habit of crashing on my machine
Tried Mint, but could not get it to start working on my machine
(my work has been on Adobe-CS, and I cannot do without a system where I can open my old files...... came to know of inkscape, gimp and scribus and tried them on my windows OS, liked them (specially, inkscape and scribus what a great softwares!!)
Last I came to know of Mandriva, tried installing on dual boot first and failed miserably........ but, I was pissed with my Windows enough to take a plunge into unknown, so backed up my entire data and installed Mandriva as solo system...... it was not easy by any means, had to format my HD trice because of trial and error of learning period that I was in!!
But I managed and I am very happy with it, just wondering

Ever since I installed Zorin 6 Lite on my laptop, I've experienced repeated crashes with shockwave flash player, no matter what browser I try to use. I've tried every reinstallation I can think of, but to no avail! Adobe Flash's website say they are not going to support any new versions for Linux. VOT GIFS??
[SOLVED] Installing flash player on Ubuntu 11.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 23, 2011
I seem to be going in circles here. I want to get flash player working on Ubuntu 11.04. I click on the apt 10 + of the adobe site and click download. Up comes Ubuntu software, tells me I need to use this with Ubuntu software installer, natty something. I if I look under applications, it tells me adobe flash player is installed, but it don't work. I think what is installed is the adobe installer.
Can someone give me a command line to install adobe flashplayer? I am used to yum
and that would just be yum install adobe-flash-player. If you have the adobe repo, that's all there is to it.
