Hiya, Geoff.

Easy fix, edit line 109 in /usr/bin/update_flash, change grep -A2 Linux to grep -A3 Linux.

make sure you delete the ~/.flash_update folder if it exists before running the script.

tell me if that fixes it for you...


Flamin' Adobe..! I wonder if they'll ever get tired of playing 'musical URLs'? Laughing

I'm running a slightly adapted version of your Auto-Updater; I've modified the target path to point to my remote data partition, from where I run all my browsers, sym-linked into all my Pups so I only run one instance of each.....using davids45's method.

I've got a single instance of PepperFlash linked into all the Chromium-based browsers.....so I figured it'd make just as much sense to have a single instance of FlashPlayer, sym-linked into every Pup at /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, for the Mozilla-based ones, too.

Which works nicely.

I keep Pepper updated with a slightly adapted version of the modification sfs made to your original script, so's it'll work for Pepper:-

And it works beautifully.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand. I've substituted

Code:
grep -A3


...for

Code:
grep -A2


.....deleted /root/.flash_update, re-run Menu->Internet->Update Flash, and she's behaving herself again. (For the moment... Rolling Eyes Laughing )

So, go ahead and re-publish. Sorry to have put you through all that again...! (At least it's working once more.....for the time being.)

Thanks, Geoff. It's very much appreciated. I may be a wee bit 'sloppy' with some stuff in Pup.....but Flash is one thing I am strict about (and running around 10 Pups, it's a nightmare keeping on top of them all manually!) Automating it makes one less thing to worry about...
