Adobe Flash plugin for Firefox

Post by amtrakuk » Fri Mar 08, 2019 4:44 pm

Hi just a quick one and I hope it is something I am doing wrong but Firefox is having problems installing adobe flashplugin using the ports. I use flash because I play (still) "The settlers online" which is very flash intensive

I followed

Code: Select all

http://wiki.ghostbsd.org/index.php?title=Installing_Adobe_Flash_Plugin
but the port

Code: Select all

 /usr/ports/www/linux-c6-flashplugin11
seems to have gone missing.

After a fresh OS installation and after the updates I ran

Code: Select all

portsnap fetch
then

Code: Select all

portsnap extract
and installed nspluginwrapper ok but then tried to navigate to the linux-c6-flashplugin11 location only to find it is not there!

IIRC I navigated to

Code: Select all

 /usr/ports/www/flashplugin
which said it installed correctly - so, then ran

Code: Select all

nspluginwrapper -v -a -i
however Firefox is not picking up the flash plugin

Basically I ran the instructions as per the guide but Firefox is not picking up the plugins. I'm guessing Mozilla has moved the location of plugins in the new version of Firefox. If anyone knows where the .SO file needs to be copied I will do it manually.
A
rapid will be welcome.

Thanks

I think the documentation is outdated, but also I would not recommend using flash at all it is very vulnerable.
