FLASH-AID: removes conflicting plugins and installs proper flash plugin for Linux

Earlier today I had a chance to install Ubuntu on my friends Laptop(Intel system architecture). All was fine until I landed on a youtube page for checking if the flash was installed right,  and that's when I noticed some glitches in the video stream with very poor sound quality.

I decided to install Flash-Aid, an extension designed to remove conflicting flash plugins from Ubuntu Linux systems and installs the appropriate version according to system architecture.

I remembered having it installed on my system with AMD architecture, and I never had any problems as such. So after a successful install of Flash-Aid on his browser I ran through the wizard that installed the appropriate Flash version and removed the conflicting plugins. And after I restarted the browser things started to straighten up on youtube's page, the video was streaming flawlessly and the sound quality was a whole lot better than before.

Here's how you can install Flash-Aid on Ubuntu.

Open up Firefox and from tools option click on Add-ons.

Search for "Flash-Aid" extension from the search bar, and install it.

After install restart Firefox, and you should be seeing a red flash icon on the right side of the address bar.

Follow the instructions on the screen and you will have the most relevant and latest version of Flash installed on your system.

flash aid is gone. as usual i'm late to the party. I'm now stuck with a piece of shit distro called backtrack that can't run anything in without complications. Accidentally deleted my windows trying to fix this piece of crap. now i have nothing. i hope whoever created backtrack dies a horrible death.

Backtrack is not meant to be used as a desktop distro.
For that you have Ubuntu, a debian distro and BT is based off of debian.
Backtrack is meant to be used as a live cd for security and such.
