Chromium and Pepperflash 11.9

Postby rokytnji » 26 Nov 2013 19:23

This is just something I have been doing with with my Debian testing boxes.
Usually I stick with Iceweasel or Seamonkey (iceape support was abysmal for awhile)

Anyhows.

First before I do anything like a new application install. I do a

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
first. T pull in latest libs and anything else first. Close terminal. Open Synaptic Package manager and type in search box
chromium
Tell it to install then let it finish and then close synaptic. Then to check my install is OK. I open terminal and do

Code: Select all

$ apt-cache policy chromium
chromium:
  Installed: 30.0.1599.101-1
  Candidate: 30.0.1599.101-1
  Version table:
 *** 30.0.1599.101-1 0
        500 http://debian.solydxk.com/testing/ testing/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
If you type into synaptic
pepperflash
you will see it and can install it.

Next.

If you type in
chrome://plugins/
into a blank address bar in chromium browser after you have launched it you will see:

Adobe Flash Player (2 files) - Version: 11.9.900.152
Shockwave Flash 11.9 r900

Now as far as I know. This is only available in testing and unstable and experimental Debian, not stable. Firefox is still going to be set with the Flash 11.2 version and use that. This is just something I am using because the availability is there and I have the choice of whether to enable it or not.

my solydx sources.list to compare with yours

Code: Select all

$ inxi -r
Repos:     Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list
           deb http://packages.solydxk.com/testing/ solydxk main upstream import kdenext
           deb http://debian.solydxk.com/testing testing main contrib non-free
           deb http://debian.solydxk.com/testing/multimedia testing main non-free
           deb http://debian.solydxk.com/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
           deb http://community.solydxk.com/testing/ solydxk main
Lastly, just jaw jacking here. My Debian testing AntiX Chromium installs are at version 31 instead of 30. Just saying is all.
Not a big Ho Haw for me. I figure since ya guys do all the heavy lifting maintaining SolydX repos.
A little thing like that is nothing to get ones panties in a wad over. :lol:

I don't know if this fit's the criteria for a how to or not. If a mod thinks so. Go ahead and move this thread.
It won't hurt my feelers.

Edited: Figured I'd clean it up since it was moved to the how to section.

and an important heads-up:
from next April Chromium will start blocking the old NPAPI flash player (flashplugin 11.2) so this method here and the use of pepperflashplugin will be the only way to view flash with Chromium

Hmmm, given SolydXK's move to quarterly updates and Flash's reputation for insecurity, I wonder if the update to pepperflash would qualify as a security update?

I guess so; solydxk-updatemanager (v. 0.1.0) presented it (pepperflash 12.0) as an "Emergency Update"
So now I have 2 flashplayer-plugins. Better disable one....:-)

you don't need the PPA to be up-to-date regarding pepperflash ;)

either you redownload the pepperflashplugin-nonfree (same version) and it will pull the latest pepperflash available at the time from google [this method has the disadvantage of requiring manual intervention every time and you remembering when google updates pepperflash]

I just installed the pepperflashplugin-nonfree 1.1 available in Synaptic on SolydK64. I use Google Chrome and my sources.list is ' Google Chrome' enabled. After it finished installation the traybar icon of solydxk-updatemanager v. 0.1.0 flashed up and stated that there was an "emergency update". It was for the same pepperflash-plugin-nonfree. I ran that and installed it: the download from Google started, and this was the final result:

Code: Select all

 lappy ko # /usr/sbin/update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --status
Flash Player version installed on this system  : 12.0.0.41
Flash Player version available on upstream site: 11.9.900.170
lappy ko # 
  
I don't see any difference with your result. I'm sure somewhere later there'll be a popup from apt-notifier (or solydxk-updatemanager) that states there is an update available for pepperflashplugin-nonfree. Then the same process will be repeated.
