How to Install flashplugin-installer (Ubuntu) behind a proxy

Seems that the package flashplugin-installer do not honor the proxy setting. Here the workaround:

sudo http_proxy=http://yourproxy:8080 apt-get install flashplugin-installer

To force a package reinstallation:

sudo http_proxy=http://yourproxy:8080 apt-get install --reinstall flashplugin-installer
