    OK, so my brother removed Karmic Koala and installed Lucid Lynx with a Maverick Kernel for my Wifi Card. All good there, but: he disabled all flash-ads, all ads in general. Now I can't use Picnik Photo Editor, b/c it is full of flash animations. I don't know how to add that site to an "ads_allow" list. There is a file called "ads_allow" and one called "ads_deny", but no way to add/remove sites from a list (if there even is one). Can anyone help me? I need Picnik to work with this. HELP!

    agree with TM... also you can go to adobe's site and click on see if you have flash installed and what version. Sometimes linux programs need certain versions installed. It'd help to know if you had it, and what version. Now if he merely turned off ad's on firefox, why not download google chrome for linux? Still the faster browser [​IMG]

    Where is the software center? I can't find it. I don't know where to look for installed programs. Linux seems to hide everything, even from the intended user. [​IMG]

    K, well I just installed Adobe Flash Plugin 10.0? Picnik still won't load. Now what? I think the ads_deny thing is not browser specific. I think my brother ad-proofed my whole machine. [​IMG]

    Check your browser for an addon named "flashblock" or "Add Block Plus". If they are there try disabling them.

    Oh, and for future reference, to open The Software Center: click the Applications menu in the top bar and down at the bottom of it click Software Center. All the software you will ever need, installable with a single click.

    Please help me. What now? What could be blocking Picnik? (something my brother did by blocking all ads)?
