You need to free up some space on your had drive

a) if possible move some of your saved files from your home folder off to something like a USB stick

b) empty your recycle bin

d) run these 2 commands
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove -y
then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
df -h
again

Yeah, it's small SSD. Got another HD to be pout in it it- 2 years' now, but need to persuade someone from LUG group to put it in for me and then help me load Mint back on!

Rubbish bin is empty and got very little files on it.

Most of my files are on my Maxtor portable HD.

Dunno where this has come from "/home/karij/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so" but it shouldn't be there.

Delete it with:
Code: [Select]
rm -v /home/karij/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
now close ALL web browser instances, then reopen Firefox.

and test Flash.

Try it again, but this time without chopping the "o" off the end of the command ;)

So have you closed ALL web browser instances, reopened Firefox, and tested flash ?

Now the adobe is ok of sorts but I noticed some lagging on BBC iplayer last night ( but a live streaming event worked ok but not tonight), then I got that my firefox is out of date, when I was on it before but we just did it a few days ago...
I am talking about Mint netbook.

Please can you post the result of:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep firefox

Also, are you sure all updates are done? Load up Update Manager and click on the Refresh button at the top
