Netflix & Amazon prime video (flash)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 13, 2013
I installed tonight; I am a woman of very little needs; I need my Netflix account to work, and I need to be able to watch my Amazon Prime videos.
I managed to figure out how to start a terminal window, AND get the commands to install Netflix. At the end, I got screen asking me to agree to Micrtosoft's terms, with an [ok] at the bottom. I could not click on this. typing ok did nothing. nothing allowed to to acknowlege that I did, indeed, agree.
I tried again.
I restarted the computer.
I can't re-install, I can't get to where I wanted to go. I don't understand what is being told to me in the terminal window. I'm simply that new. However all I can tell you is that I can't get to that [ok] window again. Until I get past this, I can't watch Netflix movies.
At Amazon, I get three versions of Linux flash versions that I can download. I need to know the path to Firefox and type in commands, but I have to idea how to find the path to firefox.
This is a steep learning curve for an
[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.

Flash Drive File Server Distribution Recommendations
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 19, 2013
I'm hoping that someone can recommend a file server distribution that is suitable to run from a USB Flash Drive. I have looks at the FreeBSD offerings but none really hit what I want. Mainly because I'd like to run software raid in Linux so that I can have an expandable Raid 5 Configuration.
I have looked at a couple of the file server distros but they say they aren't suitable to run from a flash drive, I think it because they write log files to the flash drive and wear the flash drive out.
Are there any distros that will alow me to run on a flash drive without problems, and raid 5+ Sata drives, as a samba file server??
Unable to boot from trisquelmodified USB flash
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 23, 2013
I have used the method in the following url to create a trisquel-modified.iso.
I wrote trisquel-modified.iso in a cdrom and it boots fine without any problems.
Then I used my usb stick and did the following. (The usb stick was having one FAT32 partition).
dd if=trisquel-modified.iso of=/dev/sdb1
It wrote the contents of trisquel-modified.iso to sdb1. Then I tried booting from the usb stick, but it never boot. It is just showing the screen "Loading the Operating System..." and it stays there.
Please help me to know, what is wrong here. My intention is to boot trisquel-modified.iso from a usb stick that is having iso9660 filesystem.
ubuntu 8.10 vs Windows XP flash performance
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 3, 2008
Is ubuntu significantly slower than XP or am I missing something?
I Installed 8.10 from www.ubuntu.com, on an older XP system (2.4Ghz P4, 1Gb ram, Nvidia 6600GT). After installing the basic OS, installed the recommended nvidia driver, then installed the recommended flash player, as directed by Firefox.
Visiting www.hulu.com in firebox v3 on both systems I see the following results:
XP in browser window - perfect framerate, avg 35% cpu use.
XP full screen - maybe misses the odd frame, avg 90% cpu use.
Ubuntu in browser window - perfect framerate, avg 65% cpu use.
Ubuntu full screen - very noticeable framerate drop, cpu maxed out at 100%
After reading about its efficiency over XP, I was a little disappointed with ubunto. Unless there is something I've missed, XP is clearly faster at playing back flash video. Maybe the flash drivers or nvidia drivers in XP are better?
How to play DVDs, Flash, Java, MP3s and all other restricted extras easily with Ubuntu.
location: linux.com - date: October 18, 2011
While searching through the Ubuntu Software Center on my Kubuntu system I noticed something that I don't recall seeing before that would make new arrivals lives a lot easier, although that doesn't mean it wasn't there already lol. It's a package that includes all the restricted extras like mp3s, DVD play back, java, flash etc... all bundled into one easy to install package.
How nice and simple this is.Even tho I am on Kubuntu I always install the Ubuntu Software Center, because by default Kubuntu uses Muon Software Center and I just like using the Ubuntu Software Center a lot more. If your not using "Ubuntu Software Center" and you can't find this package I am talking about, try installing Ubuntu Software Center and finding it that way.
In your software center in ubuntu 11.10 search for "Ubuntu Restricted Extras" I'm on Kubuntu,so I installed "Kubuntu Restricted Extras", If your on Xubuntu they have a "Xubuntu restricted extras".

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??
