Merry Xmas, y'all!

One little tip, for anyone who's interested. This only seems to work for SlimJet; doesn't work for Chrome, or Iron. If you want to update within the same series (14-series, 15-series, 16-series, etc.), download the tarball, extract the contents, and just swap over the main 'slimjet' file within the '/slimjet' directory.

This will give you the newest version, without needing to change anything else. Probably because, with SlimJet, every release within a given 'series' is based on the exact same version of Chromium.....and FlashPeak simply modify the main 'shared library'.

I'm not trying to put Oscar out of a job here (honest!), but I thought the information might be useful to all concerned, packagers and users alike.

How do I manually update the slimjet flash? Can't seem to find libpepflashplayer.so anywhere. I'm on slacko puppy 5.6 with slimjet 15.1.6.0.

The 2 files libpepflashplayer.so and manifest.json are in the PepperFlash sub-diectory which is inside the main slimjet directory. This will normally be found under /opt or /usr/lib

Delete those 2 files. Download the correct PPAPI tarball from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer
Extract the 2 new versions of those files.
Chown them to root:root
Put them in place of the old files.

I have no /opt & no Pepperflash in usr/lib/slimjet. Only Pepperflash I see is in /config/slimjet, but it's empty. I have an old flash installed, but located where I have no clue. Suggestions?

It sounds like you have got some things going on which are non-standard and that makes it more difficult to advise. However, if you enter slimjet://version in the address bar it should give you (among other information) the location of libpepflashplayer.so

@sleeper48:-

You say you can't find /opt? So you're telling me you've lost part of your filesystem? Rolling Eyes

Click on 'file', top left corner of the desktop. That opens up ROX-Filer. Look at the 'menu bar', above the main window. There's a bunch of icons there, including a picture of an eye.

Look at the far left-hand end. You should see an upward-pointing arrow.

Click on it, and it'll take you into the file-system (one level up), of which your 'root' folder is but a part.

What d'you see?

Although you should find /opt there, that may or may not help you to find PepperFlash. As Oscar says, it should be inside the 'slimjet' folder. There should be a folder labelled 'PepperFlash', which, when you click to open it, should contain libpepflashplayer.so and manifest.json.

If you've installed any of Oscar's packages, Slimjet should be inside /usr/lib. If you're running 64-bit, and have installed one of mine, you should find the Slimjet directory inside /opt. Yet, according to your readout above, you're running 32-bit.....and your Slimjet is apparently in /usr/lib. Where you'd expect it to be.

So the location of your PepperFlash is, indeed, something of a mystery.....

---------------------------------------------------------

Go to Menu->Filesystem->Pfind file finder. Enter 'libpepflashplayer.so' into the search box. Check the radio button for 'System Files'.....and hit the 'Search' button.

What results do you get?

Success!!! I was trying to find /opt by clicking on the eye instead of the arrow. Now that I found it, it was easy to update flash. Thanks to all. Very Happy

Oh, to answer your question, I get: /opt/slimjet/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so

Good, good. It's an easy mistake to make. We've all been there in our early days...!

Glad you're sorted.

Thanks again for that tip. Do you have any idea if it is possible to uncheck that option permanently without creating an extensive "machine-specific" profile? (which seems to happen when I try to turn that flash option off).

I would like to package slimjet in a puppy for distribution but don't want my own machine profile included.

Morning, GG.

You might find something here that's applicable. It's the full list of 'switches' available for including in the wrapper script's 'exec' line.

https://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/

Don't forget, Chromium is the base for all these browsers (Chrome, SlimJet, Iron, etc). I warn you, it's a very long list.....but it just goes to show how complex the code base really is. (Something most folks just don't appreciate).

Oooooooh, thats a tasty list. Thanks Mike.
I may not surface till xmas 2018 Smile
cheers!

EDIT : Actually no - didn't take long at all - it was quite a simple matter to search for:
- flash
- youtube
- html5

but unfortunately I saw nothing to address my needs Sad

Although I don't want to change the slimjet defaults by creating a profile specific to my own personal machine I have just noticed that OscarTalks' slack 14.0 pet includes a "default" directory in /usr/lib/slimjet/ so I am hoping there is some way for me to configure some settings by including a simple text file (maybe .json?) into that directory.

Currently in that directory there is information specifying only the Quickdials that appear on a new tab. It appears that these can be changed to match what I want to display in my generic pup. Maybe other defaults can be set there too?

The reason why don't I want to create (and save) a "machine specific" profile is because I like to boot all my software in "generic" mode - in exactly the same state that it would boot on any other machine too. That way my profile doesn't accumulate session info or get "locked" to my specific machine.

This means that I dump any changes at each shutdown - so the Slimjet "personal profile" that gets created each boot (in /root/.config/slimjet) gets chucked out.

Therefore when I boot my system it has no /root/.config/slimjet directory at all so Slimjet is on "first run" every time - which means it builds a new /root/.config/slimjet directory by referencing the basic default one in /usr/lib/slimjet/. (maybe in other versions of slimjet the files are in /opt instead...)

I want to distribute my generic pup without the /root slimjet profile, yet still set up some very basic configuration (especially "no youtube flash") in the tiny default profile that already exists.

Whew. Wordy way to explain what I need. Brevity is not my strong point.
Confused

I think the default settings are coded into Slimjet and these will define the condition before any profile has been created (and before the user has changed anything). This includes the tick being present in the force flash on youtube option.

The only idea I have is that you could generate the file named Preferences which is found inside the profile. Make sure this has the code to untick the option and then include it in the package or the Puppy remaster (in the correct location). That way you just put in that one text file but not the rest of the profile (which would be created on first run as usual).

Thanks for the idea. Just tried that by saving the Preferences file that Slimjet created after I unticked "youtube flash" - then copied that file into /usr/lib/slimjet/default - but it seems to ignore it.

It uses the updated Quickdials from that default folder but ignores the Preferences file.

I will try various options.
cheers!
