Iceweasle and flash issue
« on: January 31, 2015, 11:01:20 am »
Everytime I visit a new web page which has flash app's  on it keep telling me my flash is old and to update flash and confirm that I want to run the flash app, how can I get it to stop asking and just run flash without asking, it is becoming a pain in the rear...........

It's not an issue, it's security check.
Firefox found that you have out-of-date flash plugin installed.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

Best thing to do is, use Google Chrome .deb

Sadly Adobe doesn't provide any updates for Linux anymore (the NPAPI/Netscape-compatible version). It's stuck at 11.2 (might still supply some security fixes, but not for long now). The only browser that has an up-to-date Flash plugin is Google Chrome, which uses PPAPI version of Flash, which still is supported by Adobe.
There isn't a single thing that's impossible. Just the things that we don't yet know how to deal with. ;)

I am well aware of Adobe non support of flash in Linux but up until about a week ago I was using Firefox (with another distro) and I never had an issue with playing flash, it just go on and played it no warning message's nothing. Is this something that has just brought in or just something common to Iceweasel??

There are several modern, good alternatives to the trouble-ridden iceweasel-firefox duo.   See http://lxlinux.com/#2 for names and links.

Indeed, there is. There's a "PPAPI host" NPAPI plugin available, but it's still experimental and requires manual building. I'm still setting up my new development environment, so I can't make a quick DEB package, yet. For those interested in trying to build it themselves, here's the link to the project: https://github.com/i-rinat/freshplayerplugin (description at the bottom of the page)

Has anyone tried pepper flash? Flash didn't work in latest Opera and installing it helped.

If anyone wish to give it a go, try

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree

Pepper flash is available in synaptic package manager. The problem is, there are no more updates for flash player outside Google Chrome built in plugin.

I was suggesting to use pepper flash instead of Adobe's plugin

And I thought pepper flash is also out dated. I thought Google Chrome based flash player is the only flash player that receives future updates.

Go to here and install pipeligjt for Debian Jesse.   http://pipelight.net/cms/install/installation-debian.html

You can install flash, silverlight, widevine...whatever you need.  I have it installed in open box 4.0 rc3 and it works like a charm.  Didn't even need the spoofer to trick the websites into thinking I'm using windows to use the flash 17 that pipelight supplies.


Enjoy!

Thanks.


It took 3 hours for me to install all plugins and 5 minutes copy and install all those plugins in Desktop to Laptop.

Desktop around 3 hours and copy .wine-pipelight to Laptop and it took 5 minutes in Laptop.
