Upgrade killed flashplugin-nonfree

I just performed an update and it killed the flash plugin. Any suggestions on how I can fix this or is it just a waiting game?

Ran across this article at LJ about adobe's abandonment of 64-bit flash plugin...
http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/ado ... flash-beta

I always run 32-bit, even though all my systems are amd64, so I'm not sure this is the root of the issue.

64bit flash went the way of the dodo.

Adobe euthanizes Flash 10.1 for 64-bit Linux • The Register
Adobe has murdered Flash for 64-bit Linux. At least for the moment.

On Thursday, the company took the beta tag off the 32-bit Flash Player 10.1 for Windows, Linux, and Mac, and it released a slew of security updates for versions 10.0.45.2 and earlier. But at the same time, it posted a statement to the Adobe Labs page announcing the end of the Flash 10.1 for 64-bit Linux beta.

However, the company says it intends to offer 64-bit Linux support in a future release.

"The Flash Player 10.1 64-bit Linux beta is closed," the statement reads. "We remain committed to delivering 64-bit support in a future release of Flash Player. No further information is available at this time. Please feel free to continue your discussions on the Flash Player 10.1 desktop forums."

Ah, but if you visit the desktop forums, you're told not to discuss 64-bit Linux Flash, and you're pointed to the 64-bit Linux forum. And as a Slashdotter points out, the 64-bit forum has been set to read-only. "Like in a Kafka novel," says another Slashdotter. "I'm not sure whether I should laugh or cry... but it reminds me of reading The Trial."

Meanwhile, others have no intention of crying. "That's one down," reads the first comment, as Slahsdot points to the death of the 64-bit Linux player. "Now, get them to cancel flash on i386 Linux, then on MacOS, then Windows, and we'll be all set."

This does not appear to come from Steve Jobs.

Though it has closed the Flash 10.1 for 64-bit Linux beta, Adobe tells us that it still intends to offer 64-bit Linux support in a future version of the player. "We remain committed to bringing native 64-bit Flash Player for desktop operating systems," the company says. "We expect to provide native support for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux 64-bit platforms in an upcoming major release of Flash Player."

Any suggestions on installing the 32bit version :?:

I've removed the 64bit version.

debian-multimedia (unstable repo) has a working 32 bit version
with all required ia32 libs ready to install on amd64 systems

There a couple of others way take a look at http://osdir.com/ml/debian-user-debian/ ... 00842.html

That is too bad. Security flaws aside, it did preform better for me.

I am ashamed I removed gnash and will not be abandoning it in favor of any adobe solution again.

For amd64 flashplayer-mozilla is needed, http://www.debian-multimedia.org non-free sid amd64
and after install nspluginwrapper.

Goodbye Flash - with any luck you won't be missed for much longer.

Just a little typo - nonfree should be non-free

It's possible that you have libflashplayer.so still on your system too. Check these locations at least:
/usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/
/usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree
~/.mozilla/extensions/

I simply copied libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/ and Chromium on 64bit is playing flash videos.

Re-Installing flashplugin-nonfree is working for me now, Squeeze 64bit.
Squeeze 64bit has had a number of breakages the past couple of weeks, probably due to the high number of updates being pushed through, most appear to have been fixed within a day or two. :D

How did you get flash working again in squeeze? I get:

# aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree
Code: Select all
...
Setting up flashplugin-nonfree (1:2.8) ...
wget failed to download http://people.debian.org/~bartm/flashplugin-nonfree/fp10.sha512.amd64.pgp.asc
Try again later with "update-flashplugin-nonfree --install".

Adobe killed Flash for amd64, it was updated for 32bit in the Debian repos and removed for 64bit because it had security holes in it big enough to drive a tank.

Adobe Flash 64 bit is dead, ding dong the witch is dead. Good riddance.

Gnash works on youtube, and there is minitube .

Yes, and an increasing number of YouTube videos are available in WebM format. These work very well with Firefox 3.7a6pre which you can get from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ ... est-trunk/

64 bit or 32 bit on amd64

Etch (oldstable): The 32 bit version of Adobe Flash Player 9 is installed. On amd64 the 32 bit plugin is accessed via nspluginwrapper, and the 32 bit plugin uses libraries made available in the packages ia32-libs and ia32-libs-gtk.

Lenny (stable), Squeeze (testing), Sid (unstable): The 32 bit version of Adobe Flash Player 10 is installed on i386. The 64 bit version of Adobe Flash Player 10 (still in Adobe labs) is installed on amd64. Users of amd64 who prefer to use the 32 bit version of Adobe Flash Player 10 can install a browser and the 32 bit plugin in an i386 chroot as well described in the AMD64 HOWTO

Security considerations

Users of Adobe Flash Player should follow security bulletins and advisories published at http://www.adobe.com/support/security/ .

Recent news: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/b ... 10-14.html

Are OK now:

* 32 bit player of flash player 10 on i386 systems : 10.1.53.64
* 32 bit player of flash player 10 on amd64 systems via chroot : 10.1.53.64
* 32 bit player of flash player 9 on i386 systems : 9.0.277.0
* 32 bit player of flash player 9 on amd64 systems via nspluginwrapper : 9.0.277.0

Are not yet OK:

* 64 bit player on amd64 systems : 10.0.45.2

Users of the 64 bit player on amd64 systems are advised to switch to the 32 bit player, at least until Adobe has released a fixed 64 bit player.

Gnash doesn't work for me. Youtube gives me the following error message, other sites don't work either:

Code: Select all
An error occurred, please try again later.


What happened with the nsplugin option. I tried installing adobe flash with nspluginwrapper however I ran in all sort of missing libraries :(

$ nspluginwrapper -v -i libflashplayer.so
Code: Select all
*** NSPlugin Viewer  *** ERROR: libflashplayer.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
*** NSPlugin Viewer  *** ERROR: libflashplayer.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
nspluginwrapper: no appropriate viewer found for libflashplayer.so
