Question How to purge "libfreshwrapper-pepperflash.so" (aka: SWF 15.0.0.152)?


Hello,

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome 2 desktop and the latest Firefox and T-bird.

I need to purge "libfreshwrapper-pepperflash.so" from my plugins. It is causing Firefox to totally hang (gray screen) for about 30 seconds every time I go to a page that uses Flash 11.2. I tried to get rid of Flash 15.0 by using the terminal and "sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer" but it removed only Flash 11.2. I have Chrome browser installed also. This problem was occurring before Chrome was installed.

When both were in my FF Plugins, I could not enable just the one I wanted (11.2). 15.0 would enable itself when I enabled 11.2. Could not watch video that called for Flash. Video works fine when HTML 5 is used, like on YouTube.

Is there a way to purge 15.2 from my plugins? I don't know how to compile, so I didn't get 15.0 that way.

Thanks

Hi,

It seems you have the Fresh Player plugin installed (it's a different package than the flashplugin-installer). Do you remember how did you installed it? Maybe you added a repository for it to your install? Or maybe you added a plugin directly to Firefox?

In any case, this might help determine what package is providing it (in case it is being provided by a .deb package installed on your system):

Code:
apt-get install apt-file
apt-file update
apt-file search libfreshwrapper-pepperflash.so
Post the output of the last command here.

There is an easier way to find out what package provides the plugin (in case it is provided by a .deb package), simply execute this in the command line:

Code:
dpkg -S libfreshwrapper-pepperflash.so
It should tell you which package (if any) contains this file. Then you'd simply need to purge it.
