Re: flash player plugin not run in Devuan

I ran into this a few days ago and ended up downloading it from https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ for a friend. We can't get it to work. I already have flashplugin-nonfree installed from long ago, and when I go to about:plugins, I don't see it listed. And neither of us could see some items on one site that requires flash. Debian wiki looked helpful, but as I said, the plugin didn't seem to work and doesn't show up in the list of plugins. I don't know what's going on with it.

Re: flash player plugin not run in Devuan

Hi, I haven't used flash in a year, I use html5 extension in FF, and it is working very well with youtube, and movies.

Re: flash player plugin not run in Devuan

Regarding the flash player situation in devuan, I had this problem some time ago.  I found that the problem was that the .deb package may not have been putting it in the proper location.  What I did was to search (google search, not file search) for the correct location of the flash player in linux and then symlinked to these locations that were mentioned. 

So, if I remember correctly, I downloaded the adobe flash player from the adobe website and put the file libflashplayer.so in /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/ .  Then I created symlinks to this location with

ln -s /usr/lib/flashplayer-plugin/libflashplayer.so /etc/alternatives/libflashplayer.so

If that does not work, try

ln -s /usr/lib/flashplayer-plugin/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flash-mozilla.so

If that does not work, try

ln -s /usr/lib/flashplayer-plugin/libflashplayer.so /home/USER/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

I apologize for not being able to give you the exact location that I symlinked to in order to make it work, but it should be one of these.  I did not symlink one location at a time, but I created the symlink in Thunar and them copied it to these locations and one of them worked.  I just don't know which one is the correct location.  Thus, in not knowing which location was correct, I left them all in place.

Edit:  removed duplicate location

Re: flash player plugin not run in Devuan

You mention /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flash-mozilla.so twice already, so if I mention it once more, it'll sure be the right place smile

Yes, I didn't catch that from the notes that I copied + pasted from.  Thanks.

Re: flash player plugin not run in Devuan

Nothing to worry about. I'm pretty sure it's the right pathname.
But it just made me think about the Bellman.

Re: flash player plugin not run in Devuan

Another way is to grab the adobe-flashplugin package from MX16 (for Jessie, of course). And, if that package could be added to the Devuan repo......
