Firefox flash plugin on ubuntu linux displays no text

I’ve installed firefox flash plugin on ubuntu as firefox asked me to install. But I found out that text is no displayed. After some hours and google searches i found out that the problem is gsfonts-x11 package which was not installed on my ubuntu distributon. As I did
[code]sudo apt-get install gsfonts-x11[/code]
The text suddenly appeared in the flash movies displayed by firefox web browser.

    Great tip! I remember this problem from before, but when I reinstalled my OS I completely forgot!

    Thanks so much for this tip. But please tell me how one would know that this was a necessary prerequisite to get Flash to display text in the browser?
