First thing to try - uninstalling and reinstalling the flashplayer.

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:
Code:
sudo apt-get remove --purge flashplugin-installer

then
Code:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

now close ALL web browser instances and fire up a single Chromium browser to test.

How is flash now ?

=========================================================

If that doesn't work .. run:
Code:
sudo updatedb

then post the output from:
Code:
locate libflashplayer.so

and
Code:
dpkg -l | grep flash

hi.
thanks..


trying to install it again, I got this:
yishay@yishay-Inspiron-1012 ~ $ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package flashplugin-installer is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'flashplugin-installer' has no installation candidate


thanks again

Is this a fresh install? If so, try running...
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Then follow PCNetSpec's instructions again.

sudo apt-get update

do you get any errors ?

yishay@yishay-Inspiron-1012 ~ $ dpkg -s flashplugin-installer
Package `flashplugin-installer' is not installed and no info is available.
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.


no results for the other


no errors for the update..

Do you still get an error when you run:
Code:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

?

If it installs this time, you might want to do a full system update:
Code:
sudo apt-get update

then
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade

then
Code:
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

then REBOOT.

Now let us know if flash improved or not ?
