How Update FlashPlugin for Opera ?

Post#1 by Kulle » 30 Jan 2017, 14:06

I have used Porteus v3.1 Xfce for a long time.
I've now in addition stored Opera-42.0...xzm in the folder modules.
It works well, VPN works well, but video is not supported,
Message: Adobe Flash Player is out of date
That's why I downloaded flash_player_ppapi_linux.i386.tar.gz
unzipped and and stored in
rootcopy/usr/lib/opera/plugins/libpepflashplayer.so
But it doesn't work (same message: FlashPlayer is out of date)
I need help. Thanks in advance
I'm sorry, but my English is very bad.

Hi Kulle

Until someone else can give a better advise -- ( i use Pale Moon)

I did (loop) mount the opera-42.0.2393.85-i586-1.xzm, but i don't
see a path like your "/usr/lib/opera/plugins/libpepflashplayer.so"
in "usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/opera/resources/" is a file "pepper_config.json"
with following content

"PepperFlashPaths" : [
"/usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/usr/lib64/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/usr/lib/chromium-browser/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/usr/lib/chromium/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/usr/lib64/chromium-browser/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/usr/lib64/chromium/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/opt/google/chrome-beta/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/opt/google/chrome-unstable/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so",
"/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so"

It looks like a table where opera will search the plugin
so you may have to put it there or to adjust the path in the settings of opera.

You need to install Pepper Flash plugin. Just download this, convert it to a .xzm module and put it inside your USB stick /porteus/modules/.
