Adobe Flash Netscape v Pepper Flash

Post by Drygar »

Hi there.

Running Linux Mint 17 XFCE edition for quite some time. Running fine.

Since day one I have Firefox and Chromium installed.
Firefox's Flash player has been running fine + I installed PepperFlash for Chromium. It would be difficult for me to run without Flash (unfortunately).

All was running fine since the latest Flash Player package update. I noticed it is now called a bit different (previously its name contained the version as per the Adobe's site).

Since then, Chromium no longer recognizes PepperFlash. Chromium thinks its Adobe Flash is version 11.2 just like Firefox. I can see this from www.whatismybrowser.com and from chrome://plugins commands

What I did - tried to update PepperFlash, to re-install it. I completely removed Firefox, Chromiun and re-installed them. Removed all Adobe Flash, PepperFlash, mint meta codes, mint-flash-player-steam . Re-installed them and still the same. The new adobe flash player breaks it all.

Anybody have any suggestions ? Every idea :idea: is much appreciated ! :)

Hello everyone.

I did not see a reply about this question and I was wondering if anybody have any idea.

If I search Synaptic about Adobe, I see these two entries (see attachment)

Currently, I uninstalled all Flashplayer and adobe stuff, Firefox has no Flash plugin.
I installed only PepperFlash plugin which added Adobe Flash Player only to Chromium.

Any help is much appreciated

I have both FlashPlayer and PepperPlayer installed. Neither work any more. And I have been on Mint since version 13, and before that, Ubuntu since version 9, without problems with the FlashPlayer. I would love to know why it suddenly no longer works. I have tried Firefox, Chrome and Chromium, with NO success.

If you can get live radio link to work (http://www.wbap.com), please let me know:

Thanks in advance! :cry:

Hi.

It doesn't work with me - the radio.

As I mentioned above, only PepperFlash works with Chromium, no Flash in Firefox anymore. I am unable to install it so that it is as it used to be there.
