I can't remember how exactly to do it, having never really had the issue, but I would suggest a few things:
Going on Ubuntu forums (if that's what you are using, sounds like GNOME at least) would probably help.
Also, you'll need to specify what exactly your system is, eg Distribution, 64/32 bit, application, hardware etc.
From my experience, if it's 64 bit flash, you're going to have fun. Take that up with Adobe, it's their player.
