Was pointed to this tutorial by my friend Raju.
It worked well for me.
After following the instructions mentioned above I installed the package " adobe-flashplugin " from the repositories using the command:
$ sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin;
Also if you experience any problems with dependancies, the following command can be used to check the broken packages.
$ sudo apt-get install -f
where the '-f' option checks for depedancy breakage.
Here is the original tutorial:
