How to Install adobe flash player on Ubuntu 14.04

Installing flash player on Ubuntu 14.04 is not a very complex scenario. I frequently face it because you need to update it in a regular interval. Adobe flash player is one of the most essential applications you need to play video.
For Ubuntu 32 bit you can either manually add it through the software centre or you can better add it through the command line.

Open your terminal and type:

sudo apt-get update
Next type:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

Hopefully it’ll work for the 32 bit. But for Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit the procedure is little bit different.

Open the terminal and type:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
It’ll open the ‘sources.lit’ file. After opening it you need to uncomment the below lines .


deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu trusty partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu trusty partner

Then you have to update the repository by typing

sudo apt-get update

Next install it.

sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

Now just open Adobe Flash Player Version in your browser and you can see the flash player version details.
