Not getting Sound in flash in Ubuntu? Try this! Worked for me!

Found this at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=204022

This is awesome.Flash looks for /usr/lib/libesd.so.1 and expects /tmp/.esd/socket to exist. By using these 3 commands, you can create them and flash will work. you will have to restart firefox if that is what lead you here ;-)

the commands are as follows:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libesd.so.0 /usr/lib/libesd.so.1
sudo mkdir -p /tmp/.esd/
sudo touch /tmp/.esd/socket


This worked for me, so I share it with you in hopes it helps. Because now I can listen to the portal "Still alive" theme XD
