What version do you have running? Try going here: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/

What happens if you either update flash and pepperflash in the Flash-manager,

or

install adobe-flashplugin (the preferred method now)

and restart the browser?

My /usr/lib/mozzila/plugins and /etc/alternatives libflashplayer.so entries are symlinks pointing to /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree entry.
I download manually from adobe 1st the npapi and extract just the libflashplayer.so file to my /home/harry/Backups folder

Then open rox as root

Code: Select all

password then root terminal prompt shows.

Code: Select all

rox
again open another rox file manager

Code: Select all

rox
draag and drop from /home/harry/Backups folder the libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree and pick copy from the menu

Then go to rox file file manager where I have /home/harry/Backups open. Then go to /etc/alternatives and //usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

Drag and drop from /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so over to those other 2 folders I have open earlier.
Pick symlink relative to create my symlinks.

That way when I update adobe flashplayer manually again later on. I only need to copy my new downloaded libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree to update everything. My existing symlinks I made earlier do not need to be touched.

My way works in Iceweasel/Firefox and Seamonkey. I don't use Blink browsers out side of my Chromebook. Which I also own and use from time to time.

HTH.

I don't know if your post is aimed at MX users or antiX users, for MX users it's easier now to just install/use the adobe-flashplugin package and you should be able skip those manual steps.

I think both MX-15 and MX-16 came with flashplugin-nonfree preinstalled, but if they've upgraded to MX-16.1 (and even if they haven't) they should install adobe-flashplugin, because I don't think it gets installed automatically during the upgrades.

The MX-16.1 isos have adobe-flashplugin preinstalled by default.

And fwiw adobe-flashplugin is up-to-date at version 26.0.0.137 .

I now see that adobe-flashplugin is also in the antix.daveserver.info repo, but it looks like it needs to be updated to Stevo's latest.

I don't know if your post is aimed at MX users or antiX users, for MX users
Could be either ,or, Ken.

Edit: I guess since I mentioned rox file manager one can take my post as just AntiX specific instructions. But my way works in in my MX installs using Thunar also. I don't rely always on scripts doing installs. This is just my way of understanding our distros file system structure.

I only answered because I saw AntiX in namida12's inxi -F readout.

I know there are tools and scripts included for users if the packages are available. I just taught myself how to do things manually instead is all. Figured I'd share my method. That's all. One can use my way or ignore it. No sweat here, in the desert. :tumbleweed:
