steve_pusser replied by private message:
Debian doesn't care much about fixing their broken Flash installers and updaters, but there are the MX adobe-flashplugin packages: http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/non-free ... ashplugin/ that I keep updated, or the Ubuntu PPA version is also safe to install in Debian:

http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/poo ... ashplugin/

https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/canonical_partner

or there are the flashplayer-chromium and flashplayer-mozilla packages in the non-free section of deb-multimedia.

There are two different kinds of Flash, depending on what browser type you're using. The MX and Ubuntu packages install both, deb-multimedia has two separate packages.

But I think this question affects a lot of users besides you, so why not have it in the public forum?

Idownloaded file from mxrepo and got gdebi error in package adobe-flash-properties-kde: dependency is not satisfiable: adobe-flashplugin (=1:20181205 1-1mx17+1).
I believe this is latest version for my arch and kde.
I also installed pepperflashplugin-nonfree from buster as wiki recommends, but pesky website still complains about adobe flash player not installed, package installed in /usr/lib/chromium

The reason I asked is that I don't use Flash any more and rarely find any site that pretends to need it. Anyway, if you still want it, use the MX one from Steve's repository.

You need to install the adobe-flashplugin package, as the error message said, since that one contains the plugins. The properties-kde package just has a KDE settings module to set the plugin's properties, and other users can use the gtk version, but they are just frosting on top of the main plugin package, which should work without those.

Well, what does Adobe say you have installed? https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

Allowing Flash in Chromium fixed the issue, now how to make it permanent for all websites using Flash?

Flash 13.1.2 is ancient, you need 32.0.0.101, like what I get with the MX packages:

You need to install the adobe-flashplugin package

I cannot find this package in repo, I am using stable + backports, how install in order not to get the dependency error?

Please read this thread again and follow the link to get the MX packages, and install the right one this time.

Sorry, but for the life of me I cannot understand which package I need to install, I installed the MX -17 repo now, so please give me instructions on how to update the mozilla package.

I downloaded the latest adobe-flashplugin from ubuntuupdates.org.
Is that the one?

You need to install the adobe-flashplugin package. If you did add the MX repo, with the non-free section, then
Code: Select all
apt update
apt install adobe-flashplugin


Otherwise, you can directly download the adobe-flashplugin deb for MX 17 for your architecture from here: http://mxrepo.com/mx/repo/pool/non-free ... ashplugin/

and install the local deb file by any of the means that are repeated countless times in these forums (hint: gdebi). Note that I DID NOT SAY the adobe-flashplugin-properities-XXX debs, those are optional.

The Ubuntu packages are set to work with their variant of the Chromium browser and will not work with Debian's. I have modified the MX packages to work with Debian's.
