hey., i downloaded flash from adobe site and chose the .rpm i ran it and installed flash. but it dosent work. i try to play a flash game but it just loads the game and dosent connect to the server. for instance i play a flash game of poker on facebook. it loads the "connecting to server" but dosent go any further. i used ubuntu before and had no problems. i also was using kde, using gnome now. i checked the repository and it says flash is installed. im lost as to what is causing this?

The BLAG repository has a free version of Flash called "Gnash", which might actually sort things out for you. Try the following:

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install gnash gnash-plugin

Have you tested other sites? How do they work? Facebook could be down or is wonky for something. Or Flash in general could be pooched. No idea with info that has been given. It should work with what you did and has when I used to use flash player in the past. I've never used facebook, so I can't comment on that.

My experience is flash is a pain in the butt on any Linux. It would lock Firefox up on Blag and the entire system on Ubuntu. I know use Gnash, it lets me watch dumb videos on youtube.

I haven't used it for a bit, but since gnash deserves its name, you may want to check out swfdec (swf-dec?) as well.

gnash sucks as far as i saw when using it, it is constantly outdated not to mention that it produces lower video & sound quality.
while using flash 9 with blag 70k i had a number of issues solutions for which appeared to be flash 10 beta, which still runs for me quite well up to now.

The most recent gnash in debian is damn good. Personally I just use a downloader like clive or similar. I prefer to use my browser to browse and a media player for media.

flash kept locking up my browser, it's like throwing a time bomb into your browser, not worth on anything production.

Flash is lag.
I despise it.

The definitive, sequence is to rid oneself of it permanently.
I know it's daunting and since adobe has such a massive monopoly on multimedia online, it can drive one mad. But if we just roll over and die, we'll be allowing these cons to think for us and act for us, until the cycle drive us to the edge of sanity.

Mozilla has a gpl addon called Flashvideoreplacer. It allows the playing of Youtube via a media player, such as Totem or Mplayer. (I don't know if VLC works though)

Gnash and Lightspark exist, install them if needed. However my favorite flash exterminator is Linterna Magica. it's a script that replaces flash with a pleasant and lovely interface that makes Youtube and flash videos play better and faster then before.

It's not going to be a complete replacement for the proprietary garbage they feed us but it's as close as we can get for now.

For youtube, you can use gnash and greasemonkey with youtube without flash script.

nah.. gnash9 eats a lot of my resources

I'm testing now "linterna magica" script and is really good, you don't need gnash neither shockwave! also is quite good documented
