SOURCE: Adobe Flash Player

Savvy, no doubt you have solved this problem already. For anyone having problems like this here is the fix. You must downlaod the Uninstall Flash program from Adobe website. Using Windows Add/Remove programs will NOT work. After running the Adobe Flash Uninstall download the Flash and install. Viola

What browser are you using? Firefox? Internet Explorer? I have had this same problem. Try to uninstall the flash player and reinstall it. If that doesn't work and you are using Firefox, try to
uninstall and reinstall Firefox, just remember to save (export) your bookmarks first. Good Luck.

Download Mozilla Firefox onto a Flashdrive from a friends house, or the Library, etc. You could even download flashplayer onto this and bring it home and install..... But I just assumed that your first problem was that you were using Internet Explorer.. lol Try firefox, You'll never have silly problems like this again

Yea i am useing a system called ubuntu and it keeps asking me for a password to instill updates or apps but i dont have a password on it how do i get it off

Ubuntu has Two different passwords a root password and a user password. When you say you do not have a password you mean a user password. The System is looking for a root password. It asked you for one when you installed the system. If you do not know it the only way I know to get around it is to reinstall. Ubuntu and most linux distro is free. Download one and make a cd or dvd then reinstall if you do not have one.

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?

Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    "Yes" for installing any flash or any type or program you might Administrator password.
    As default Ubuntu has no password set for the root user. To gain root access you have to type in your own user password. This is the password you set for the first user while installing Ubuntu. To manually set a password for the root user, type in the following in the shell:

    sudo passwd

    After that you are asked to type in the new root password twice. Finally, your root user has its own password.

    Now you enter the your password to install the flash or any other program.

    Ubuntu is a Linux distribution. You will need to purchase and install (or have someone install for you) a copy of windows.

    I would advise that you take it to your local Staples and have them set it up for you.

    First of all, try this:
    Username: root
    Password: root

    Second of all, you only specified that you had Vista. If you manually installed Ubuntu, then you must've specified a Username and Password during the setup.

    If none work, then go ahead and format the Ubuntu partition, then re-install Ubuntu. This time, try to remember the Username and Password.

    Ubuntu Change Root Password


    This is the way i do it, maye there's an other way.

    Ubuntu has no set password for the root user. The defult root password is your own user password, the password you set for the first user while installing Ubuntu.

    These are the steps to change the password -

    1.Applicatons > Accessories > Terminal.
    2.In the new window that opens write "sudo passwd".
    3.the system will ask for the new root password.
