This tutorial is a detailed guide on how to install Flash in Ubuntu, specifically Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander. I documented three ways to do it, two methods covering installing from the official repositories and one method for installing it manually from the official website. Screenshots for beginners on how to use the USC are also available.
This tutorial focuses on showing the use of one of the new features introduced in Ubuntu 13.10, namely Smart Scopes. With Mir being postponed, Saucy Salamander didn’t have a lot of new features, focusing on stability rather than trying to break new grounds. Smart Scopes is one of the main additions to Dash in Saucy.
With Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu ships a solid desktop based on the work that has been done since 13.04, with few new features that are noteworthy, and no major changes. Saucy will be supported for 9 months, until July 2014. With 13.04 support ending very soon, Saucy is a good replacement to feature newer packages and a decent lifespan.
