Adobe flashplayer gone down?
Did an update, no idea if that has anything to do with it, not anything to do with flashplayer that I noticed but could have been perhaps, and flashplayer has gone down. So no videos from youtube etc.
Anybody know what this is about? Has Adobe suddenly gone down the tubes for 64 bit or something?
At this point flashpugin-nonfree is useless on amd64. Adobe no longer supports the 64 bit player. See this bug report http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=586273
Howto get Adobe Flash working in 64bit - http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=53036
Thanks for the heads-up Craig,and the link to the guide for nspluginwrapper.
Worked great for me.
Unhappily still does not work. No youtube for example.
Unless the problem with Adobe happened yesterday - adobe did something yesterday - it is presumably me updating my Debian backport that buggered things up. Bit ignorant but is there some way of going back to previous?
aptitude install flashplayer-mozilla
I changed the howto, no reason to wget the file when you can install it using aptitude
Also make sure you use stable and not squeeze if you aren't running squeeze.
If someone looks up this thread it might be helpful that installing VirtualBox software computer and then installing Debian Lenny 5 i386, i.e. 32 bit into virtual box and then installing the backport as it says on the Debian wiki, flashplugin-nonfree. Sorts things out. You may use flashplayer inside the virtual computer.
Unhappily when trying to use BBC iplayer, a resource demanding thing, then, on my quite powerful box, the picture is a bit jerky on full screen. This did not happen outside virtual box.
Just another conspiracy theory
Maybe I'm just stoopid paranoid after spending a whole day installing 3 different distros and getting the same ridiculous result:
NO FLASH Period
Then about 11PM I gave up and re-installed Ubuntu Natty
Heck I KNOW adobe-flashplugin works on that right?
After all...I have Natty on my 3 other computers
So I install Natty...updates 'n all
What do ya know?
"flashplugin has crashed"
In disgust I grab libflashplayer.so
On one of my other 'puters
Copy it to this one...overwriting the file there
It works!!!! !
Considering the percentage of users for whom flash is of vital importance
(Heck I might croak without my Southpark fix)
It would be pretty easy for adobe to sabotage the thing
Making it unusable in Linux
Making Linux completely undesirable
Windozed yet again?
More dirty tricks?
More corporate hooliganism?
All I know is...
I'm saving this plugin and sitting on it
You resurrected a two year old thread. Flash works just fine if you install it properly.
apt-get install flashplugin-installer
apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
apt-get install flashplayer-mozilla
using the dmo repo
thx a million
Only been running Linux since friggin modem days
Guess I have NO idea what I'm doing
"apt-get install flashplugin-installer"
who woulda thunk it?
What would I do without you're in-"f"-able wisdom
It must be getting cold and damp in the lair. The trolls have emerged irritable and hungry.
This is the Debian forum, the 'buntu forum is here: https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/ubuntu-63/
(There is a reason this board is divided into sub-forums.)
Flash can be installed in Debian in the way craigevil describes, if it doesn't work you can post and ask for help in the relevant forum providing full details. Resurrecting a two year old thread just to rant won't get flash working...
First you resurrect a 2 yr old thread, then you whine when told exactly how to install flash.
More than likely you are some sniveling 12 year old playing on his shiny new laptop mommy just bought you.
