Quick questions about the flash plug-in

#1 Postby joany » Wed Mar 22, 2017 9:48 am

Hello,

I've been away for a while, so forgive me if these question have been answered already.

1. I've been updating my flash plug-in manually from the Adobe web site and notice that the version of flash for Linux is now in sync with Windows and Mac OSes (the current flash version is 25.0.0.127). Does this mean the Pepperflash option is no longer needed?

2. The MX-Flash update tool is still in the MX-14 repository, but it seems to be defunct. Is this tool still supported?
MX-14; 3.12-0.bpo.1-686-pae kernel using 4GB RAM
2.4GHz AMD Athlon 4600+
NVidia GeForce 6150 LE; 304.121 Display Driver
You didn't slow down because you're old; you're old because you slowed down.

MX-15/16 version of MX-Flash has been kept updated, but the MX-14 version is probably as you say 'defunct'.

The standard NPAPI flash is now keeping up with Pepperflash, and will work with the current Firefox, but Firefox is going to drop support for it soon and just use Pepperflash directly.

I'll see about rebuilding the latest MX-Flash for the M12/MX 14 repo. I think we have our updated Flash download tools that it uses already in the repo...yes, they're all in main. Until that's updated, you can use (as sysadmin):

Code: Select all

updateflashplugin-nonfree-direct
from our flashplugin-nonfree package to update the standard NPAPI flash, since the current Debian scripts are broken.
