Flash player in Opera Beta 42 not working
« on: December 08, 2016, 03:46:55 pm »
Hello everyone,

As in the title, flash player does not work on fresh installation of SparkyLinux 4.5 LXQt with this packages installed

browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash

flashplugin-nonfree_3.7_i386.deb


When issued this command locate libflashplayer.so I get this

/usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so


I tried Chromium and Firefox to see if it works but without luck.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Ohoh, Flash... if there is a real pain in...it must be it. Seriously I do not have a clue, but found a page where they were discussing something like this. It is probably a bit old, but read and see if you find something to work with. :)

For the flash part
https://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer

"man update-flashplugin-nonfree"

and as root (or via sudo)

"update-flashplugin-nonfree -iv"   ###  Will update if and only if you have non-free enabled.         Result presently
Code: [Select]
upstream version 11.2.202.644 is already installed
sidenote:  I loved Opera for years, over a decade, but they strayed from their in house crafted web engine and ... bleah.

I managed to make flash to work eventually. Not all the websites works but it's better than nothing.

I simply installed flash plugin downloaded from Adobe website and followed installation instruction.
