Sorry to say, but the most recent 32-bit package from adobe-flashplugin do not identify itself correctly under Chromium, what make that browser block all flash content by default, display an erroneous warning (Adobe Flash Player was blocked because it is out of date), and ask for a choice between update plugin and run this time!

The motive, I believe, resides in files /etc/chromium.d/10-flash and /etc/chromium-browser/customizations/10-flash.

In version 1:20170808.1-1mx15+1 it is:

Code: Select all

flashso="/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so"
if test -f "$flashso"; then
   CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --ppapi-flash-path=$flashso --ppapi-flash-version="
   echo "Using PPAPI flash."
else
   echo "PPAPI flash has config file in /etc, but library does not exist and won't be used. Package is uninstalled, not purged."
fi


While in version 1:20170711.1-1mx15+3 it was:

Code: Select all

flashso="/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so"
if test -f "$flashso"; then
   CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --ppapi-flash-path=$flashso --ppapi-flash-version=26.0.0.137"
   echo "Using PPAPI flash."
else
   echo "PPAPI flash has config file in /etc, but library does not exist and won't be used. Package is uninstalled, not purged."
fi


Users can easily fix it by just editing those files with the version informed in /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/manifest.json.
But the package maintainer probably want to know about that...

Yes, thanks for catching that. It seems to have something to do with the fact that those versions were built on a Jessie QEMU pbuilder machine instead of the way we've been doing packages. I'll rebuild them the standard way to fix it, and see if maybe there's a way to get it to build correctly on QEMU, too.

Version 2017.09.12.1 with Flash plugins versions 27.0.0.130 is in the repos, but unfortunately I uploaded a version that still had the Chromium problem when I built them on pdebuilder. It was up for a few hours, but I could not tell if it was up there, so the fixed version still has the same version. If you have the above Chromium bug, you can try refreshing the apt database and reinstalling it:

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get install --reinstall adobe-flashplugin


If this does not fix it after a Chromium restart, directly download and reinstall the adobe-flashplugin package for your architecture from our repo, that will keep the version in your cache from reinstalling it:

64-bit: http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/non-free ... _amd64.deb

Version 20171010.1 has landed in the main repos, which contains the security updates to 27.0.0.159. As always, restart your browser after the upgrade to use the new version. You can check your version here:

https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/

All Flash users should update. There are also packages for MX 14, M12, and MX 17 testers.
