No Flash Sound on Ubuntu

It’s been perplexing us for some time why Flash seems to install fine on Ubuntu, but we get no sound. Apparently there is a simple solution for this, as posted on the Ubuntu forums.

# Flash also looks for /usr/lib/libesd.so.1
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libesd.so.0 /usr/lib/libesd.so.1

# Flash expects /tmp/.esd/socket to exist.
sudo mkdir -p /tmp/.esd/
sudo touch /tmp/.esd/socket

It's only fair to share...
