How to install Adobe Flash plugin on Ubuntu 12.04

I switched to 64-bit Precise Pangolin last night and couldn't install flash plugin from Firefox or Chrome. This is because flashplugin-installer has an older download URL ( that doesn't exist anymore.

To solve this, go to, download latest version of plugin (adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.236.orig.tar.gz at time of writing) and move it to /var/cache/flashplugin-installer/. Then go to /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ folder and execute
sudo ./install_plugin adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.236.orig.tar.gz

Update: or remove flashplugin-installer and install adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.236-0precise1_amd64.deb directly.
