I just got flash-player going on a new gutsy-Ubuntu install on my home PC.
I had to enable the multiverse repository. Synaptic package manager --> Settings 
--> Repositories --> check: restricted nonfree (multiverse).

Then "sudo aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree" in the command line terminal.
(Thanks Rick Moen)

The player still didn't work in Firefox,
So: In Firefox menu -->Tools --> Add-ons navigate to Extensions tab --> click the 

"Get Extensions"link. In the side pane click Plugins --> Click Adobe flash-player.

You have to use the tar.gz package for Ubuntu. Download it and save it to the Desktop

In the command line terminal;

    $  cd Desktop      

    $  gunzip install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz

    $  tar -xvf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar

    $  cd install_flash_player_9_linux
    $  ./flashplayer-installer

Follow the screen instructions closing the Browser and typing y when needed.
(I didn't find any  'xpti.dat' file anywhere on my system. 

After logging out and back on I am now able to watch youtube and google video!!

Happy New Year,
Ken Bernard
