Flash on Slackware 14.1


I am overall very happy with Slackware 14.1, everything seems to be working, and most of the problems I had before I upgraded (from 14.0) are fixed. However flash player is not working. I installed chrome, which is supposed to have flash built in, but didn't. I downloaded the plugin and installed it in firefox according to slackware directions, but that didn't work. I installed in Chrome (even though it is supposed to be built in) according to the plugin instructions, but that didn't work either. Any other ideas for what to try?

Using 64-bit.

Hi bvbellomo, Did you try the Slackbuild from SBO? Did you install the 32 or 64 bit versions?

Good luck. ;-)

I believe I installed the 64 bit version from Chrome's website (not Slackbuild). Is there a way to check? Everything I read says this should be built into Chrome, so it should not matter.

So you installed the deb or rpm version? Please post the result of the following.

Code:
$ ls /var/log/packages | grep chrome
$ ls /var/log/packages | grep flash
Good luck. ;-)

Have you tried installing the Slackware package from /extra?

http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackwa...player-plugin/

I believe this is the same package as above, but from an official Slackware mirror and you can build it yourself.

Good luck. ;-)
