[ubuntu] The eternal struggle - ubuntu and adobe flash

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I cannot remember how many times I had problems with flash player in different versions of Ubuntu, but before coming to 12.10 I was able to resolve them somehow. But now I am really stuck. Here is the scenery: freshly installed Xubuntu 12.10 with all updates, the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox and flashplugin reinstalled several times. As you can guess in both browsers the page at http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ shows nothing good, namely "... a plugin is needed to display this content". In Firefox the Add-ons Manager page proudly shows Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202; li (Hardware)
