when you go to Adobe <http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=BUIGP>
you will find that they no longer offer a “debug version” as specified
in the forum post…a couple of days ago i downloaded the version
called “tar.gz for linux” which resulted in a downloaded file named
“install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz” which has inside the 9.7 MB
file named “libflashplayer.so” and a “flashplayer-installer” file
which i ignored as directed in the forum posting…
should work…does here…if it does not there then you have worse
problems than a flash that does not work…

Thank you so much, srschifano! That worked for me! Now I can watch countless hours of funny YouTube videos again! Though, I’m still curious as to why the flash player/nspluginwrapper from the repos didn’t work… oh well.
There are probably tons of reasons why the wrapper doesn’t work. It is, after all, a wrapper designed to get a finicky plug-in of one architecture to work on another. The possibilities for the whole thing breaking are great.
