Thread: Flash 0n x86_64

    Default Flash 0n x86_64

    I had heard the Flash would work natively in 64 bit in 11.1, but the
    Flash pullin, did nothing for me, and I am still having to run FF in
    32bit to use Flash, (but that causes java issues)...

    I've poked around, but I haven't seen much on the topic. Can anyone
    point me to a good resource or fill me in on how to fix things.

    PS. My updater is not working, so that may explain the Flash pullin
    issue, but I can see the update repository in Yast and get the updates
    manually. No joy...

    Odd. Even in 11.0 Flash in 64-bit FF should just work, using a nsplugin layer. In 11.1 Flash should be installed by default too. Did you not get a popup dialog asking you to accept the Adobe terms? Flash is non-OSS software and should have been pulled in from the non-OSS repo on install. What do you get when you search for flash in YaST, is it installed?

    With the nsplugin, some Flash worked, some didn't. Some things worked
    sometimes, but not other times. Very aggravating. I have had to go with
    Flash and 32 bit Firefox without the nsplugin. (yes, it's all installed)

    You need to download the alpha version of Flash for Linux.
    You can uninstall nspluginwrapper then.
    What You need after downloading flashplugin is to move it to /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/
    I personally didn't have any problems with that one even though it is an alpha version.
    How does a linux geek make love??

    - rtfm; unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; zip; sleep;

    You can also place the plugin in ~/.mozilla/plugins for a user only install.

    I had to remove the /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    line as well but leave the npwrapper.so for another plugin - flash wouldn't
    work until I also got rid of the /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so
    entry. Looks like there are is some potential for some weird collisions
    under some setups. Anyway, it works well now.
