Couldn't get it to work in Slacko, but none of these Flash wrappers ever worked for me. Oh well, back to Flash 10.3.183.90.

Hi, ttuuxxx.

A question, if I may? Despite FireFox being my 'back-up' browser (i'm a long-time Chrome user), I'd like to try using the 'fresh-wrapper' thing with FireFox; it would be marvellous if I can get PepperFlash working on FF in all my Pups.

We all know Adobe are supposed to be finally dropping support for 11.2.202.xxxxx come April next year, so.....

Now; when you say 'Reset the browser', what do you mean, exactly? Different people mean different things with any given expression..! Laughing Just need a wee bit of 'clarification', please.

Oh, BTW: What d'you reckon would be the easiest way to update Pepper in this? Does it 'read' from an already installed version of Pepper.....or does it use its own, built-in version (and if so, where's it located?) And are we talking the 32- or 64-bit version?

Reset a browser usually means restart it, This is a 32 bit version, This version I compiled some of it, When it comes to updating it, If I make another package all you would have to do is uninstall it using the package manage and install the newer pet release. You also might be able to just update a couple libs files.
I've been using it in FF 38.4 for months now and its been really good with slacko 6.3.0

I found out the problem. The reason it didn't work was because I'm using an older version of Firefox. On 38 it works though.

Hallo, ttuuxxx.

Looks like I must be in the same boat as Sailor Enceladus. I was in Slacko 570 when I came across this post; decided to try it, and, as I suspected, no joy.

I tried Kostas's version last year; couldn't get his to work, either. I use 64-bit 630 myself, along with Tahr64 and Lighthouse 64. Keeping 570 company are Tahrpup(32-bit), ETP's 'Chromepup', Precise 571, LupuSuper2 (which I'm in now), and X-Slacko 2.3.2 (based on 570).

Did you compile this for 32-bit 630? Might explain why it won't work in 570, I suppose. But having installed this, and deleted libflashplayer.so from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (and performed a re-boot), FF37 in 570 now says there's no plug-in installed.....so my system(s), for some weird reason, just aren't 'seeing' these wrappers at all...

(*scratches head*)

Hey, Sailor.

You must have posted while I was editing. I wonder; just out of curiosity, which version of FireFox were you using before?

I tend to stick with the ESR versions, y'see. I wonder if that's the problem...

Haha good timing Mike! I'm using 28, the last one before Australis (and sometimes 17ESR) and have no plans to "upgrade". Wink

Tried it with 43.03. Still doesn't work. Methinks there's summat about my hardware that's just incompatible with these kinda wrappers...

Oh, well; not to worry. I still have bang up to date Pepper in several copies of SlimJet and Chrome running on various assorted 64-bit Pups. Problem? What problem??... Laughing

'Twas worth a try..!

Yup, it doesn't show up in Pale Moon either. If I type "about:support" in the browser url, then click on the "Open Directory" icon beside Profile Directory, then open the file called pluginreg.dat in a text editor, this is what it says at the bottom:

Quote:
[INVALID]
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libpepflashplayer.so:$
1446861902000:$
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libfreshwrapper-flashplayer.so:$
1463801810000:$

Pretty sure that's the same error as in Firefox 28. Does yours say something like that Mike? Like you said "Twas worth a try". Laughing

Well its for a 32 bit version of Slacko like 6.3.0, With a newer version of Firefox like 38.4 and newer. Its probably not working with your backend and bit versions.
