MX Flash Manager uses the `update-flashplugin-nonfree --install` command, installed by the flashplugin-nonfree package, to update flash.
Sometimes it lags behind whatever's the current version.

Stevo has rebuilt the flashplugin-nonfree package to include a `update-flashplugin-nonfree-direct` command that will directly download the current flash version from Adobe and install it.

Stevo's version of the flashplugin-nonfree package is in the M12 testrepo, which you might not have enabled.

Run the command

Code: Select all

apt-cache policy flashplugin-nonfree
If it shows that the installed version is 3.6.1mcr120+1, then run the following

Code: Select all

sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree-direct


If some other version of flashplugin-nonfree is shown as being installed (other than the 3.6.1mcr120+1 version), then download Stevo's flashplugin-nonfree package from here:
http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/testr ... +1_all.deb.
Install it with gdebi, then run the last command above that I posted.
