Flash issue with Steam

Postby Lantesh on Tue Jun 03, 2008 6:11 pm

I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem, and how to solve it. PlayOnLinux released their new version, 3.0, and I used it to install Steam, which worked flawlessly. My issue is Flash is being a royal pain in the arse. It's maxing out my CPU at 100%, and making Steam unusable. If I minimize steam down to the task bar my CPU % drops back down to normal since the window is not being displayed, but as soon as I open the window back up Flash pegs the CPU back to 100% again. Does anyone have an idea on how to go about fixing this issue? I'd really like to be able to play Counter Strike Source in Linux, and have one less reason to ever need to boot Windows.

Edit: I should note that the main Steam screen is stating that Flash needs to be installed in order to view things correctly. I'm wondering if I need to install the Windows version of Flash through Wine.

Edit2: Ok I just installed Flash 9 for Windows through Wine and that didn't make any difference.

With flash there's a large difference between Elyssa and the older versions
Is this in an Elyssa beta?
If it is in beta032 an upgrade to 048 may solve it - if in 048 - well....

It's the 032 Beta. I'm holding off on 048, and waiting for the final release. Maybe if I'm lucky that will fix it.

I don't know about steam but 048 solved (most of?) the other flash problems

Well that sounds promising then. I guess I'll know soon enough.
