Failing flashplugin

I’m just puttign this here so I can rember it JUST in case i happen to change up things again. While I was trying to install the flashplugin i came upon this:

Unpacking flashplugin-nonfree (from …/flashplugin-nonfree_7.0.68~ubuntu1~dapper1_i386.deb) … Setting up flashplugin-nonfree (7.0.68~ubuntu1~dapper1) … Downloading… done. usage: update-rc.d [-n] [-f] <basename> remove update-rc.d [-n] <basename> defaults [NN | sNN kNN] update-rc.d [-n] <basename> start|stop NN runlvl [runlvl] […] . -n: not really -f: force dpkg: error processing flashplugin-nonfree (–configure): subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: flashplugin-nonfree E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) A package failed to install.

basically all u do is change the line 35 of /var/lib/dpkg/info/flashplugin-nonfree.postinst

from

/var/lib/dpkg/info/flashplugin-nonfree.postinst

to

update-rc.d flashplugin-nonfree defaults >/dev/null

then away u go… Ofcourse i would have never of known this if it wasn’t for this post in the ubuntuforums

  1. this was really starting to piss me off (falco from starfox 64 huh huh. get it…. probably not).. after every apt-get install i did it brought up that. and before it could install the new apps i download it asks me if i wanna download and install the non free flash plugin only to tell me it failed and i should run dpkg –configure -a whichh always fails anyway.
