Adobe Flash Player Update

Recommended Posts

Chrome as nothing to do with flash updates on Archlinux as they are separate projects altogether. This shows the current version of flashplugin on Archlinux:

 

x86_64 Extra flashplugin 11.2.202.235-1 Adobe Flash Player 2012-05-04

i686 Extra flashplugin 11.2.202.235-1 Adobe Flash Player 2012-05-04

http://www.archlinux.org/packages/?q=flash

 

Maybe your mirrors are out of sync or you are using an AUR version.

That's odd...

 

root_Arch/home/vtel57:# pacman -Qi flashplugin | grep Version
error: package 'flashplugin' was not found
root_Arch/home/vtel57:# pacman -Ss flashplugin
extra/flashplugin 11.2.202.235-1
   Adobe Flash Player

 

Yup, you do not have the version from the Extra repo installed as it would say installed beside it. See:

╚═══ ~-> pacman -Ss flashplugin

extra/flashplugin 11.2.202.235-1 [installed]

Come to think of it, I think I have my flashplugin manually installed in Arch just like I do in Slack. :)

 

From about:plugins in FF:

 

			File: libflashplayer.so			Version:			Shockwave Flash 11.0 r1

Why? There aren't going to be anymore Adobe Flash updates for Linux. I may as well just stick with the one that works now. :)

Hmmm, when did they say that?

 

They are still showing links to various Linux installers for both 32-bit and 64-bit here and here.

Here we are caught up in stupid format wars ... yet again!

 

Good thing there is HTML5 and we can all say good bye to Flash!

Yup. You may have forgotten this discussion in BATL a while back --> http://forums.scotsnewsletter.com/index.php?showtopic=52633entry343607

 

That's understandable, though... you've been a busy girl lately. ;)

 

Sadly, I think HTML5 has a long way to go before we can say the last good bye to Flash. :( Better hang on to your plugins. ;)

Ah, yes. There was something niggling in the back of my mind about this but couldn't find it right away. Thanks!

 

This is just plain laziness on Adobe's part.

 

Not everyone will be moving to Google Chrome or Iron.

 

Many of us still will use Firefox, Opera and other cross platform browsers.

 

Yep...still feel the same way. ;)

Yeah but the majority of content sites still use Flash. I would be very happy if HTML5 took over but I do not think that will happen anytime soon.

The quicker Flash goes away, the better it will be for everyone if they are going to be that way.

 

Not everyone wants to use Chrome.

Well nothing has happened yet, they just mentioned requiring the "Pepper" api and Mozilla said that they would not be using the api. This has not happened and who knows with the tech world, this could change quickly.

Adobe has updated a couple more times since their announcement that they were ending flash support for Linux (other than Chrome). The latest version direct from Adobe is 11.2.202.235. :)
