Chromium: Shockwave Flash has crashed

Postby linuxfluesterer » Wed Feb 26, 2014 14:14

Hallo guys.
Since some days, maybe 1 month I use my Chromium (Version 32.0.1700.102 (246481)) with KDE 4.12.2, Kernel 3.13.3, (Sabayon 14.02) and I almost receive a message 'Shockwave Flash has crashed'. I have in mind, Chrome (or Chromium has a built in Shockwave or similar).
Before last upgrade I could reopen a tab, then Shockwave was fine (for at least some time), but now, I can no more (re)open a tab without Shockwave being crashed.
So, is there anyone here, who appears the same crash? Any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

Yes, I am also having this crash and have found it in other Distos as well. https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=9731.0

Problem is I can't use their answer.
I bad answer is just reload the tab and it starts working again.

Same issue here for a while. Annoying, but until the open source version is fixed, google-chrome (binary distributed copy) works fine.

Where do you get the Binary version and how do you install it?
If you go to their website it does not have a Sab version. :-(
Thanks!

in rigo, search for google-chrome,

via command line (my preference ;-) ):
Code: Select all
equo install google-chrome


Hope that helps,
andy

Yes, That helped. Thank you! It does have another problem though. Now the mouse does not work on the player on the second video monitor at full screen setting. I can live with it but would be happy to have any help or ideas about fixing that problem.
Thanks.

Douglas_E_Knapp,

Care to share any details on your video setup? nvidia, intel, or amd/ati video card(s)?

I have (often frustrating) experience with both nvidia and ati/amd cards in dual head and/or dual card setups (I've been running dual-headed display for 25 years now :-) solaris then linux....fun stuff, but awful details getting it working satisfactorily). with both nvidia or ati cards, their proprietary drivers support twinview or multidisplay(?) as an alternative to xinerama. xinerama has minor issues which may be the problem on a second screen. Not much experience with the open source drivers, but I'm sure folks here have plenty.

Or is your setup two cards with two separate screens (two X server instances), in that case, yes, there are issues with video overlay on the second screen. Sorry for the run on list of questions :-) So many choices, it's tough to guess easily....

cheers,
andy

forgot to mention, two of my systems, one ati, other nvidia, both run their proprietary drivers' version of "twinview/Multihead" and both seem ok with fullscreen video on the second screen. Both setups have one card handling output for two screens, although ati setup has second card setup for crossfire (basically useless in linux). ATI keeps changing the name (big desktop, hydravision, etc)....

I don't currently see the setting but I could have sworn it was Twin view.

You have the xinerama setting enabled, which if I recall correctly, may be the source of the second screen video problem. comment that section out, along with the nvidiaXineramaInfoOrder in the Screen section, then proceed with the nvidia control panel to setup twinview for you.

make sure you've got nvidia-settings, the nvidia control panel, installed ("equo install nvidia-settings") and run that to enable twinview rather than xinerama. Since nvidia-settings can be run as you, rather than root user, I would suggest "chown username /etc/X11/xorg.conf" to allow it to write that file after nvidia-settings creates the new settings for you.

I'd also suggest "systemctl disable x-setup" which disables the boot time "best guess of the OS" setup of X.

Good luck and hope that does work out for you ;-)
