No flash on my mint netbook
« on: February 16, 2015, 08:33:49 pm »
I am well pissed off- was prompted to update Firefox, so did so, now adobe not working. Went into package manager and chose it but still not working. It is FREEZING downstairs and wanted to watch iplayer under the duvet- please help Mark! Now I have to go sit in freezing lounge and eat my supper there and watch prog there.

Checked firefox plug in page and it was deactivated- god knows why. I ticked it reebooted and it works but says its vulnerable. At least I can have my supper up here under duvet and watch it. Will be back later Mark!

See above for the sudo stuff! Thanks Mark- I thought too that it was still trying to recognise the older version. I had the caps on hence the p/w problem. I wish the netbook had a caps lock- I can't tell if it's on - no light as the laptop has.

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
and if that completes without errors, try the instructions in my last posting again
