Bug Description

For the last few weeks whenever I attempt to install flashplugin-nonfree on Ubuntu Gutsy AMD64 I get the "md5sum mismatch" error output under "ERROR OUTPUT" below. In the meantime for those experiencing this problem you can execute the following commands to manually install the flash plugin in firefox (make sure to close all open browsers before installing):

cd
rm .mozilla/firefox/pluginreg.dat
sudo aptitude remove flashplugin-nonfree
sudo aptitude install nspluginwrapper
wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
tar -xzvf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
sudo cp install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
sudo nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
rm -rf install_flash_player_9_linux
rm install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz

Sometimes after updating firefox, and sometimes for no reason, the flash player will stop working. If this ever happens simply execute the following command to get it working again:

sudo nspluginwrapper -u /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
