The instructed command says <<it's not there>>, but the search shows it. My inclination is to select all from the search, and hit <<delete>>. Or, is there a better command line option?, (the instructions look like they only would remove the installer).

Thanks

That's a lot of files that aren't the flash plugin...

What does dpkg -S /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so tell you? Does it list which package owns this file. That's the flash plugin.

And don't delete files owned by packages from your system directories manually; use your package manager! (especially if your plan is to delete hundreds of unrelated files from other packages...) Sure fire way to bork your system.

Xeenopeek:

Here's what it tells me:

Code: Select all

x@z:~$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so
adobe-flashplugin: /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so
x@z:~$ 
Does that mean I should nuke this (/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so) directory?
Thanks.

No it means you should just uninstall the adobe-flashplugin package.

re: apt purge adobe-flashplugin may be what you are looking to do now. Please close browser(s) before running command to remove flash.

edit to add: dpkg -l | grep flash may be useful as well, eg. my results:

Code: Select all

dpkg -l | grep flash
ii  adobe-flashplugin                                           1:20190108.1-0ubuntu0.18.04.1               amd64        Adobe Flash Player plugin
ii  libhal1-flash                                               0.3.3-2                                     amd64        Compatibility library to allow playback of Flash DRM content
and based on that I'd run: apt purge adobe-flashplugin libhal1-flash if it errors prepend sudo to the command (should prmpt for password regardless)

Xeenopeek:

I must be using the wrong commands, all I have tried return a message saying that Flash isn't there.

Thanks

Yup, that did it!
Is there a safe alternative?

Thanks.

flash and safe don't belong in the same sentence :lol:

best bet is to look for alternatives for the sites you use that still use flash. HTML5 is the way forward (and away from flash anyways)

chrome/chromium uses pepperflash and I imagine they will stay on top of it or make it go away when adobe abandons their own flash-ship for even security updates, this year (iirc)

There is freshplayer (in the repos), which is a wrapper that brings pepperflash to firefox browsers, but it is not considered safe either (according to dev notes on it) unless you run firefox sandboxed (eg. with firejail and/or apparmor) since shimming pepperflash into firefox opens some other vulnerabilities.

I just purged adobe flash from system, had forgotten the mint-meta-codec installs it :/
going to run for as long as possible to see where I might still need flash and if I find something and no alt then make a hardcore locked down browser profile for just that site :evil:

edit to add: run sudo apt autoremove to get rid of the rest of the flash installed junk left behind, which will take care of libhal1 that I mentioned finding in my grep result, as well the other stuff

It seems hard to believe, (after all this is 2019 isn't it?) that so many pgms (Kodi for example) still need this piece of crap!

WHVW I do feel your pain, however, i haven't used kodi, or other flash/flash-required-to-renderstuff progs (afaik, inc kodi) for quite some time.

Know this: For sure, flash is dead- time to bangup the devs with requests to migrate to something "safer" and/or search for alternatives :/

ps, that adobe article seems different than announce I found before saying adobe no longer will support even security updates to it sometime in 2019, but my brain is fried so let search engine of preference guide you to better results for the EOL of flash itself :wink:
