Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

The installer should have a debconf option for setting a proxy, or at least a configuration file somewhere.

Currently many upgrades on our campus are broken due to the flashplugin-nonfree postinst failing.

If Adobe's licence of flash to Canonical permits it, distributing the blob in the package (as on partner) would be preferable.

Would Bug #580523 solve this issue as well? It's a request to respect the system proxy settings.

I think the right fix here is to respect the system wide proxy settings (that is fixed in natty now). I don't really see a use-case where that is not sufficient?
