Flash, the wiki and midori

Long time Bodhi user, from 1.5ish.

First off, great job on 5, everything's working as i like it, I have no fluff and can just go with what I need. As always, great job devs.

It's been a while since I last did a fresh install and today i got 5 up and running, while i had no problems getting things set up the way I like, I didn't get flash working as per the wiki's instructions as on this page here:

While I rarely use flash on websites, and youtube on chromium seems to work (I did install flash-plugin from the command line, but that's about it for my effort to make flash work) I gave up.

One other thing, as always, midori was a thoroughly meh experience, while i did find it relatively easy to get flash working, I couldn't get past registration for this forum while using midori. The forms were slow and un-responsive and attempting to select a timezone crashed midori.

I should point out my hardware is more than capable of performing, amd fx-8370 and an nvidia 970.

Jesus I'm glad to be using bodhi again though. I've been stuck in propriety hell for the last year and a half with both work and home.

Regards, BB

I had similar issues with midori. You couldn't use the old official bodhi forum with it either. It only barely works enough to get another browser for me (before I knew how to use command line etc).

I feel like, and I'm only speculating, they don't want to install firefox or chromium by default as they don't want to make that choice for people, plus it's always useful to have a backup browser around. I personally think they should replace midori with palemoon to serve that purpose, cuz it works on all sites.

I've never installed anything for flash that I recall. What site needs flash? I'm curious if it works for me magically or why I've never noticed the need to install it.

I've noticed lots of the stuff on the wiki is only applicable to older versions of Bodhi. It would be useful if the wiki noted what version(s) it was applicable to.
