Have got myself into a right old state trying to install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. Could someone point me to a text only tutorial please. Just to watch YouTube videos lol.

Hello there rburkartjo

 

I have tried using the first step from the link you supplied which is sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash

but all i get back is:

 

Cannot access PPA (https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~sevenmachines/+archive/flash) to get PPA information, please check your internet connection.

 

I have checked my Internet connection and it is working other wise i would be unable to post this message?
