Pepper Flash Player installation problem

Postby acukcroy » 2017-10-20 08:29

Hi, I am trying to install the Pepper Flash Player as per instructions from:

https://wiki.debian.org/PepperFlashPlayer/Installing

If I follow them then:

Code: Select all
apt-get update
apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree


I get the error:

Package pepperflashplugin-nonfree is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source

My sources.list:

Code: Select all
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.1.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 NETINST 20170722-11:28]/ s$
#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.1.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 NETINST 20170722-11:28]/ st$

deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main non-free

# stretch-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main non-free
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main non-free

deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free


Same with:

Code: Select all
aptitude install pepperflashplugin-nonfree browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash


No candidate version found for pepperflashplugin-nonfree. Unable to apply some actions, aborting


Help appreciated.

Thanks

Change your sources list to include contrib.
See this section of the page you used: wiki.debian.org/PepperFlashPlayer/Installing.

Hi, I have changed my sources - as far as I understand - see the last line in my sources.list

Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free

There is no pepperflashplugin-nonfree package for Debian stretch:

https://packages.debian.org/search?keyw ... ection=all

We will probably repackage bunsen-pepperflash for a stretch base soon.

OK, thanks.

The page at https://wiki.debian.org/PepperFlashPlayer/Installing may need to be updated then, as it says:

aptitude install pepperflashplugin-nonfree browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash

Actually, I've just realised that I'm still using the BL-H² version of that package in my Debian stretch systems and it works fine (I had an update popup just the other day):

Or the MX 17 adobe-flashplugin package, which contains both the NPAPI and PPAPI (pepper) plugins, since we have permission from Adobe to redistribute the plugin binaries. But that makes it a lot more of a pain to rebuild those packages with every new Flash release. :?

http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/non-free ... ashplugin/

The wiki is outdated--the procedure and package that's in there broke a long time ago, (though I did hack it enough to get it working again at that time) which is why it's not in Stretch. But I have no idea whether my hacked version is still working:

http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/non-free ... n-nonfree/
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Krita 3.3.2.1, Pale Moon 27.6.0, Audacity 2.2.0, mpv 0.27.0, Corebird 1.7.1, Firefox 57.0, SMPlayer 17.11.2

Thanks everyone - I installed bunsen-pepperflash & common via a .deb.

Seems to work in chrome now :)

Although it's a pain when chrome keeps asking "allow flash on this site".

I'm not sure,seem OP's problem is for chromium?
AFAIK adobe already provide standalone PPAPI Flash Player file for linux.
But you need manually install it.(I'm forgot that how-to but that should is easy thing. I now trying re-googling)
Also see:http://www.webupd8.org/2012/09/how-to-make-chromium-use-flash-player.html

if you mean chrome, chrome is self-containing PPAPI Flash Player .
I'm sorry for my bad English skills
I'm don't want to be a nuisance.
