Chromium and Flashplayer

Post#1 by wread » 23 Jul 2017, 15:49

I like Chromium better, because it is open source. :Yahoo!: But it has no Flashplayer built in....

The solution is not trivial. Installing a Flashplayer plugin is not enough. You must extract chromium and edit the file 00-default.conf to tell chromium which version of Flashplayer you are using and where did you install it.

My 00-default.conf reads:

# Default settings for chromium.
# This file is sourced by /usr/bin/chromium

# Options to pass to chromium:
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libpepflashplayer.so --ppapi-flash-version=26.0.0.131"

The colored text is my edit. You must edit yours correspondingly and repack your chromium.

Cheers!

You are making it hard while it is in fact easy.
If you took my chromium package (the "00-default.conf " is the proof of that) and made a Porteus module of it, you should also grab my "chromium-pepperflash-plugin" package and make a Porteus module out of that.
The pliugin package installs a file "/etc/chromium/pepperflash-plugin.conf" which contains the information Chromium needs. You should never have to edit that "/etc/chromium/00-default.conf" file.

@wread, just need to download Pepper Flash module. Here's the link: Pepper flash plugin 25.0.0.127

I'm using it with last Opera 46, and so far so good, but let me know if it works for you. :)

@alienbob: Sorry I didn't find your flashplayer. I got it from Adobe.
Besides, I don't remember having used your chromium slackware version; I built it from chromium.org, otherwise I had given credit to you in the package, as I usually do with KDE; take a look at this:
This is from my unofficial KDE5; the only file modified for Porteus is plasma-workspace....it is tainted with Porteus distro files...

My complete 003-kde5 is a folder -not a compressed module (you update kde5 every month!) - with a premium selection of files for a basic decent operating system.

A compressed version of it is here, you can try it! And all members of Porteus of course.

Slackware was my first approach into linux; I also adopted Slax once, then switched to Porteus. Fanthom and Brokenman thought me how to make Porteus and now I cook my own versions with no guest user and no "su" stuff - I use root in AF mode always- (a good reason not to become a maintainer of Porteus-KDE), if I mess a system I can get backups and put it to work again.

I don't intend to become administrator or even "maintainer" or Porteus. If I can help, I do it gladly, without compromising my time. I guess I am the oldest member of the Porteus family, born 37 (I am on the xzm team) and had my hands on an IBM already in 1960 at TH Hannover, Germany.

@fulalas: My Flashplayer is 26 as you can read from my post, more advanced as the USM version...

Un saludo cordial para todos!
