Software :: Cannot Uninstall Flash-plugin From Yast - Deleted Flash-Plugin Directory

Aug 15, 2010

In my frustration to get adobe flash working in firefox I deleted the /usr/lib/flash-plugin folder. Now when I try to uninstall "Flash-Plugin" from YAST it fails as it can't find the sub-folder. I also cannot install the latest version of flash player as it says that it is already installed - So I am stuck in a loop.

I am running SUSE 11.2.

Is there a config file of installed programs that I can modify to remove the "Flash-Plugin" entry, or is there another way to get over this problem.

Debian :: Firefox 4.0.1 Can't See Flash Plugin?

May 18, 2011

I dislike Iceweasel as it has older versions, so I installed Firefox 4.0.1 on my new install of Debian Sid. Downloaded the tar.bz2 package, unpacked it in opt, linked /usr/bin/firefox to /opt/firefox/firefox, figured out why it wasn't running (it needed ia32-libs-gtk), got it to run, and now it doesn't see the flash plugin.
My usual technique was to put firefox in opt, close it, then aptitude-install flashplugin-nonfree, which pulled the plugin and made it work with both Iceweasel and Firefox. But right now, only Iceweasel has the flash plugin installed.

I found in /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/; usually I'd try copying it in /opt/firefox/plugins, or ~/.mozilla/firefox/plugins, but neither of these directories exist. In fact, I can't seem to find a dedicated plugin directory anywhere firefox-related. What do I do?

I have the same machine and software as Carlsewell (software version: Eee pc; Biosversion 0802) and I followed this advice to the letter:

Paste this file into '.mozilla/plugins/' in your home directory - this is a hidden directory, so you'll have to select 'show hidden files' or similar from your file manager. restart firefox.

Fedora :: Firefox Wants To Update Flash Plugin?

Oct 29, 2009

Fedora 11, 32-bit, updated daily manually via yum (console). Today got the Firefox update to 3.5.4. After restarting Firefox, the fist page reads: "You should update Adobe Flash Player right now." The link leads to Adobe site, which offers me Flash Player version All is fine so far, excluding the fact that I already have this player:

[root@pc ~]# rpm -qa | grep flash

Just for the record, on "aboutlugins" page Firefox confirms I do have the correct player version:

Shockwave Flash
File name:
Shockwave Flash 10.0 r32

Does it mean Firefox does not detect correctly the Flash plugin version? Or am I missing something?

Fedora :: Flash Plugin Not Working In Firefox 3.5

Dec 24, 2009

I have never had a problem with flash plugin before. Just recently I decided to try gnash to see if it plays flash videos better then flash plugin (it doesn't). So I updated flash plugin from the 10.0 r32 version to the 10.0 r42 version and went under Tools > Add-ons > Plugins in Firefox and disabled the gnash plugin and re-enabled the flash plugin and now flash does not work any more. I've tryed uninstalling gnash, reinstalling flash plugin, reinstalling Firefox. Flash just will not work. Flash works in Google Chrome or if I run Firefox as root.
I have Fedora 12 32bit

I disabled the new version of flash plugin (10.0 r42) and re-enabled the old version (10.0 r32) and now flash works. I dont understand the new version of flash plugin works but only in Google Chrome or if I run Firefox as root?! Also Firefox (as my user) shows both versions of flash plugin 10.0 r32 and 10.0 r42 Firefox as root and Google Chrome only show the new version.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Flash-plugin Does Not Seem To Work In F11 Or F13

Jun 29, 2010

I'm having the same issue when running F11 or F13 x86_64 and getting the flash-plugin installed just doesn't seem to work. aboutlugins in the browser does not show that the plugin has been installed.

I've followed the instructions at [URL] to no avail. This problem is common to both Firefix and Chrome.

The file referred to in this step ( for google chrome does not exist on the filesystem, sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/ /opt/google/chrome/plugins/

I've ignore the sticky thread for this as I believe that this version of the adobe 64 bit plugin is vulnerable to this issue, [URL]

I've also tries the gnash-plugin and still no flash in either browser.

Fedora :: Flash Plugin Signing Key - Cannot Update

Running graphical software update, fc13. Attached are screenshots, which appear in sequence. The first seems to be asking if I trust the source, Adobe. (The Help for this window says I can go to the adobe website to confirm details of the signing key, which I will do if there is not a simpler fix.) If I respond in affirmative to the first window I get the failure window, second shot, with traceback.

Fedora :: Flash-plugin Settings Not Accesable?

Mar 14, 2011

The hardware acceleration in the Adobe flashplayer gives strange side-effects (distorted "after-image") when using it in combination with the Nvidia hardware drivers. No problem, because you can right-click in a flash-player field (like a ..... moving image), go to settings - and disable hardware acceleration. The strange thing however is.. you can only do this ONE time. After that setup is greyed out an cannot be used any longer. Very bad, because after an flash update the hardware acceleration is set to "on" by default.

Even stranger... I can be used in another browser (say Opera or Google chrome) when "blocked" in Firefox - but only ONCE. When doing setup in Opera it only works one time, and after that it is also greyed out. The same thing happened with Chrome. This is very bad, because I am running out of browsers very fast. If flash is being updated/upgraded now I have no browsers left....

I have been looking for setting files in my home directory (hidden files), but did not find anything that leads to a solution. I am running the KDE desktop if this is of any help.

This has happened on two independent systems. Does anyone has the same problems? And if so - does anyone knows how to "repair" this strange behaviour?
