Manually install Adobe Flash / Temporary flashplugin-nonfree fix

I realized the other day that the flashplugin-nonfree package appears to be broken.  It’ll act like its installing but at the end, if you pay close attention, it’ll give an error about the md5sum not matching and give up.  This applies to installing the package manually or via the browser notification itself.  I wanted to post a temporary fix while we wait for the package to be updated.

Manually Install Adobe Flash

  1. Download the Flash for Linux archive
  2. Unpack the archive (/tmp perhaps)
