Thread: Annoying Adobe Flash Player...

  1. #1

    Default Annoying Adobe Flash Player...

    I've downloaded the "YUM" and ".rpm" versions of Adobe Flash Player, and ran the installers that come up when I click on the file that was downloaded to my desktop. But it didn't make a difference. I still can't play YouTube videos and other flash features.

    Forget those. Do this. Open a terminal and type: su
    then your root password. Now type:

    Code:
    zypper in flash-player
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Deactivate the DEBUG Repo, you certainly don't need it.

    With YaST => Software Repositories
    Thanks, done it!

    And your internet connection is otherwise OK?
    Yep.

    from su terminal
    ...
    I think that's correct.
    Everything went fine up until the "zypper ref" command, where I got the same error:

    Code:
    Retrieving repository 'openSUSE-11.1-Non-Oss' metadata [-]Download (curl) errorfor 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/non-oss/suse/setup/descr/packages.en.gz':

    I'm sorry you're having that problem, mine worked fine, using OpenSUSE 10.3 with FF2, and now with 11.1 and FF3, the YouTube videos work fine, and the flash plugin worked fine in 10.3 and in 11.1, but there's a stand-a-lone Linux flash player from Adobe that works fine for flash games, like one site I visit that has flash games on it, those .swf flies I downloaded to an external hard drive.

    I'm going to post a problem with OpenSUSE 11.1, which I'll post elsewhere, if after searching I don't see the problem already addressed or answered somewhere, but I never had any problems with OpenSUSE 10.2, 10.3, and FF2, but with OpenSUSE 11.1, as I feared, FF3 is giving me problems.

    I'll just mention that I'm going to do a search in the forum to see if anyone else is having a different problem with FF3 than what you're having, and that is, that FF3, just like the Windows Firefox3 version, crashes, closes on me, it does surf the Internet faster than FF2, but these problems are giving me headaches.

    View the Screen Shot thread, you'll see a sample of what I had, which was 606 infections, or something like that, and I had to deal with that, but now again, today, when using Firefox, I again have adware coming through.

    I never had that problem with FF2, only FF3, nor did I have any problems with OpenSUSE 10.2 or 10.3, except there was a slight "glitch" in 10.2 in the installation procedure I needed to work around.

    Anyway, again today I need to "deal" with another problem, maybe I need to contact the Firefox "team" with that problem...I was playing games on Facebook and this is what I saw.

    I'm sorry to say I really dislike FF3, I should also post another thread somewhere "begging" them to give me FF2 back. I just really dislike FF3.

    I know there's another choice in KDE for a browser, but I need to check to see if there's an alternative to FF3 in Gnome.







    My system lets in all sorts of adware, trojan horses, etc., and OpenSUSE never allowed that to get in before.

    The firewall is active.

    Anwyay, I'm either going to post several problems I'm having with OpenSUSE 11.1 compared to versions 10.2 and 10.3, or I'll go back to using Windows as I only had 3 problems with that since Windows 95, but already, with Linux, within just a few years maybe 5 or so, I've had more adware, trojan horses, etc, and I don't want to sound like I'm complaining, it's more like I'd like to spread it around, the problems I'm having with Linux, now I'll need to deal with this a third time...I just don't know what to do.

    Have a Great Day,
    Bernard
