Ubuntu – Adobe Flash installation problem in Xubuntu 16.04.1 i386


This question and answer may be applicable to other Ubuntu distros.

After I installed Xubuntu 16.04.1 on my i386 laptop I noticed that I soon got a notice from the updater that the Adobe Flashplayer could not be found. I also looked at Firefox and when I visited a game on Facebook that I play with my spouse I could see that Firefox requires flash because I was prompted to have it installed.

I searched for the Adobe Flashplayer in the Xubuntu software but I was unable to find it.

Best Answer

You can install Flash by enabling Canonical Partner and running

sudo apt update
sudo apt install adobe-flashplugin
