Flash Player version 11.2.202.359 not recognized?[Solved]

Postby linuxfluesterer » Sat Jun 07, 2014 14:16

Hallo guys.
Some days ago, I've upgraded my Sab system with KDE 64bit. There was a new Chromium also.
The version is now 35.0.1916.114 (270117).
I'm not sure, Adobe Flash was also upgraded. However, on some websites opened with Chromium, e.g.
http://www.nationmultimedia.com/national/MH370-May-Have-Crashed-Close-to-India-30235548.html

I get a message, that I have to install Adobe Flash Player, which is provided as Pugin.
When I open the matching Adobe Website (by click on the link), I see the Flash version to be installed is:
Version 11.2.202.359
Then, when I check in Rigo, I see my installed Flash Player is of same version number also.
So, why does Chromium (or the website maybe?) doesn't work correct with my (the latest) Flash Player?
Do I need maybe (a)nother plugin? I don't remember, I have ever installed a separate Flash Player while using Chromium.
Any idea? I have reinstalled Flash Player from Rigo, rebooted and reopened Chromium, no change, same message, Flash is necessary. Can I maybe install a working alternative to Flash Player?

And: On the Adobe Flash website I've read, that this version of Flash will be the last one which will support Linux platform. What does it mean?
Will html5 substitute Flash then fast or are Linuxers in a bad luck?

Chromium dropped support for NPAPI: http://www.chromium.org/developers/npapi-deprecation
You need to install chrome-binary-plugins

After installing chrome-binary-plugin (from Rigo) it looks good now, Fabio. Tante grazie.
I will close this thread as solved now.

Yeah .. well that solves the flash .. but the NPAPI drop hits badly because that makes the chromium unusable with java plugins.. Those morons dropped the NPAPI too soon ... before anyone had done any replacement plugin for java.
Any chance the v34 of chromium could be put back to weekly repo ???

Maybe I can help you with the following. Every time, when you install or upgrade, the packages (ext .tbz2) for chromium, they are downloaded in:
Code: Select all
/var/lib/entropy/client/packages/packages/amd64/5/www-client/

So, then, if you have a 64bit system, it's amd64, you can list all chromium packages which you have downloaded since last (new) install. In my case, I have listed:
Code: Select all
www-client:chromium-34.0.1847.132.899835cac3456603c9ba69d0008ba94c76b0de07~0.tbz2
www-client:chromium-34.0.1847.132.899835cac3456603c9ba69d0008ba94c76b0de07~0.tbz2._entropy_package.lock
www-client:chromium-34.0.1847.132.899835cac3456603c9ba69d0008ba94c76b0de07~0.tbz2.mtime
www-client:chromium-34.0.1847.137.88d425fa75ed50000fc4f4cee52f322fe9a9a41e~0.tbz2
www-client:chromium-34.0.1847.137.88d425fa75ed50000fc4f4cee52f322fe9a9a41e~0.tbz2.edelta._entropy_package.lock
www-client:chromium-34.0.1847.137.88d425fa75ed50000fc4f4cee52f322fe9a9a41e~0.tbz2._entropy_package.lock
www-client:chromium-34.0.1847.137.88d425fa75ed50000fc4f4cee52f322fe9a9a41e~0.tbz2.mtime
www-client:chromium-35.0.1916.114-r1.d764f9f6df20ed38b46e0a32d4b3c8c2fd22dada~0.tbz2
www-client:chromium-35.0.1916.114-r1.d764f9f6df20ed38b46e0a32d4b3c8c2fd22dada~0.tbz2.edelta._entropy_package.lock
www-client:chromium-35.0.1916.114-r1.d764f9f6df20ed38b46e0a32d4b3c8c2fd22dada~0.tbz2._entropy_package.lock
www-client:chromium-35.0.1916.114-r1.d764f9f6df20ed38b46e0a32d4b3c8c2fd22dada~0.tbz2.mtime

You see, that I still have packages of chromium 34? So, if you have also, then you can install yours, with opening a root console, change to the specified directory, list your content and then install with:
Code: Select all
equo install www-client\:chromium-34.0.1847.132.899835cac3456603c9ba69d0008ba94c76b0de07~0.tbz2
or
equo install www-client\:chromium-34.0.1847.137.88d425fa75ed50000fc4f4cee52f322fe9a9a41e~0.tbz2

and the 34th version of Chromium will be /re)installed. But, be conscious, you must type all the package name beginning with www-client: (after chromium-34 resp. 132 use tab key) ending with .tbz2. And: I have 2 versions of Chromium 34: see 132 and 137!
Nevertheless, I'm not sure, this will really prevent kicking off NPAPI.
Anyway, provided, it works, then you should mask chromium after installing version 34 to prevent upgrade (automatically) with:

Code: Select all
equo mask --ask chromium

Hope this will help...

Tnx linuxfluesterer .

That sure did the trick ..

I hope that someone will pick up the task on creating PPAPI plugin for java .. asap ..
as if that is going to take while ... that would trigger an exodus of people using chromium back to firefox.

With the latest repo update (sabayonlinux.org + limbo), chrome-binary-plugins are gone! Chromium 37 has no flash support, at all, this way. Why? Is there a way to get flash back?
