Hi kamal,

Just checked adobe package and it’s okay, so try following:


rpm -iv --replacepkgs http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

These instructions do not work!
Flash appears to install, but plugin is missing from Firefox.

Hi Gaxxian,

Could you post output of following commands:

uname -i

Yep, of course.

uname -a
Linux raspi.local 3.6.11 #1 PREEMPT Fri Jun 14 13:05:58 EDT 2013 armv6l armv6l armv6l GNU/Linux

uname -i
armv6l

Im not sure if has any importance, but its a raspberry pi with pidora (based on fedora 18v6) ^__^

Thanks, looks like problem is not Pidora, but problem is your hardware platform, which is armv6l and you try to use i386 packages. So you will need armv6l build of flash, but I think that you have to find/use some other flash than Adobes original flash.

Good place to start is from Pidora’s own packages:


yum search flash

yum search flash |grep -i player

yum search flash |grep -i plugin

Please let me know if you have problems?

Hi KR,

Just tested this on CentOS 6.5 and it worked smoothly with Firefox 17.0.10.

First did you restart whole Firefox after installation?

Then, could you post output of following command:


rpm -qa flash-plugin nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl

KR

Yes , I restarted Firefox after installation completed.

Here is the requested output :

rpm -qa flash-plugin nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl
flash-plugin-11.2.202.327-release.i386
libcurl-7.19.7-37.el6_4.x86_64
nspluginwrapper-1.4.4-1.el6_3.x86_64
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio-1.0.21-3.el6.x86_64

Hi KR,

Your problem is 32-bit flash-plugin on 64-bit system.

Try following:


yum remove flash-plugin adobe-release

rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

yum install flash-plugin

Thanks! I installed both 32 and 64 bits, then the problem never stop, till I remove adobe-release. Other posts suggested removing flash-plugin was enough, but it never works for me. So, thanks for the help!

Hi lsborg,

I just tested Adobe Flash Player with Firefox 26 on Fedora 20 and it’s working normally (I added also screenshot and tested flash content). Could you tell little bit more specific about your problem, errors?
