Re: [opensuse-factory] FF56 Flash Player - Working on Windows 10 not working on Tumbleweed

My system: openSUSE Tumbleweed with Firefox 56, Packman repository
added, everything works fine.

Ignore the pepper thing and the freshplayer. There were several years
that Adobe had stopped updating flash player for Linux. During the
time only Chrome for Linux is able to view swf contents.
This is because Chrome is using their own way to implement Flash -
Pepper Flash API (PPAPI).

So at that time there was a way to make the newest flash player
working on Firefox, that is the freshplayer project, which turns the
PPAPI plugin into the traditional NPAPI which Firefox is using.

However, now Adobe is providing the newest NPAPI flash player for
Linux again, and you can find it in the Packman repo (just search for
flash or flashplayer etc. I didn't remember the exact package name).
That means you don't need the freshplayerplugin and flash-
player-ppapi packages, just install the original flash player from
Packman repo and it should work fine.

Regards,
Charlie

No, sorry.
You probably confuse me with Wolfgang Rosenauer...

I will try to do *AGAIN* what you suggest because I already did it
(uninstall fresh+ppapi letting just Adobe fp latest version installed
w/out success).

You can leave flash-player-ppapi installed I think. Firefox shouldn't see it
anyway.

If that doesn't help, you could also try with freshplayerplugin and flash-
player-ppapi installed and flash-player removed.

I have no idea which one should work (or even if one does) though.
I neither use Tumbleweed nor FF56.

Kind Regards,
Wolfgang
