Gnome over remote SSH
It seems that the "owner" of the ".dbus" folder in a users home area can be set to "root" during the update process. This will mean that you will get a lot of errors when trying to use any graphical programs remotely over ssh. This problem can be fixed by running the following command in your home area:
sudo chown -R UserName:UserName .dbus/
The required flash plugin can be installed through firefox. When the user goes to a site that requires a flash plugin an install option is offered.
Adobe Flash Plugin: has been tried and seemed to work well.
If you have installed Ubuntu within a vmware virtual machine you will also need to run the following two lines to get the vmware tools to build properly.
sudo ln -s /lib/modules/YourInstalledKernel/build/include/generated/utsrelease.h /lib/modules/YourInstalledKernel/build/include/linux/utsrelease.h
sudo ln -s /lib/modules/YourInstalledKernel/build/include/generated/autoconf.h /lib/modules/YourInstalledKernel/build/include/linux/autoconf.h
