    Question Pepper Flash 32 bit

    Does anyone know if this exists? Or at least how to properly install the version that Adobe provides? I would like to get this working on my copy of Tumbleweed.

    I have searched and searched and the only versions of pepper flash are for 64 bit systems. I did find one in the OpenSuse software section from a 3rd party but some of the repo links are broken so it will not install.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Pepper Flash today should be automatically installed in your Firefox web browser and should not need to be installed separately (but might need to be activated).

    pepperflash is part of google chrome - and google stopped developing 32bit chrome for linux - so this might explain why there is no separate 32bit pepperflash download for chromium.
    Adobe flash for firefox is available in 32bit for use in Firefox from Packman (in Tumbleweed).

    I noticed a little less than a year ago that Flash support was being bundled with all the major browsers I was using and read not that long ago a statement which confirmed my observation.

    So, although Adobe flash might be available has a separate download and install, I wouldn't consider it a first option.

    hmmmm . . . really?
    I don't have flash installed from packman and when I visit a website in firefox that requires flash player it complains that I need to install flash to view the content.
    I know that mozilla was developing shumway as a replacement for flash but abandoned this earlier this year.

    I think I mis-spoke.
    Integrated support for Java is now being deployed in all modern web browsers by default, not Flash.

    The following should be interesting to anyone regarding Flash both client- and server-side...

    Flash plugins may be blacklisted
    (you can't get it to work by design, no matter what)

    FF will be blocking those insidious "Flash cookies" starting next month, then all advertising using Flash and Silverlight, then by next year you will have to "click to activate" each and every Flash on the page.

    Hi
    FWIW, I'm finding more an more sites are flash free or using jwplayer. My recommendation is to run without and see what sites work and what sites don't.. you might be surprised.
