This workaround fix all my flash problems

Elimina nspluginwrapper

$ sudo apt-get remove nspluginwrapper

* Elimina paquetes obsoletos y ficheros de configuracion:

$ sudo apt-get remove libflashsupport
$ sudo rm ~/.pulse/* ~/.asoundrc* /etc/asound.conf

* Instala las siguientes dependencias:

$ sudo apt-get install padevchooser libao-pulse libasound2-plugins

* Añade las siguientes lineas a tu fichero /etc/apt/sources.list:

# PulseAudio Fixes -
deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main

* Actualiza la lista de repositorios y despues actualiza tu sistema:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

* Fija Pulse Audio como el dispositivo ALSA por defecto (esto ejecutalo como
tu usuario normal, no como root):

$ asoundconf set-pulseaudio
$ echo "default_driver=pulse" >~/.libao

* Ve a Sistemas > Preferencias > Sonido y en todos los checkbox fijalos a
"Auto Detectar".
