Vivaldi Can't Find Adobe Flash

  • I know this topic has been discussed on the forums before. I know, because I've tried following some of the past advice given on the subject! OS: Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa, 32-bit Browser: Vivaldi 1.4.589.29 Installed Vivaldi. It couldn't find Adobe Flash. Uninstalled Adobe Flash. Reinstalled. Vivaldi still couldn't find it. Removed Flash. Installed Pepperflash. Vivaldi couldn't find it. Removed Pepperflash. Installed last Chromium 32-bit version. Installed Adobe Flash ... again. Chromium found it! Vivaldi ... still didn't. Tried putting the Adobe Flashplugin file in different Vivaldi folders ... creating a plugins folder ... putting it in the Chromium-Browser folder .. whatever ... Vivaldi can't find it. Any ideas? 🙂

    The procedure to get it on 32-bit Linux is at bunsenlabs.

  • Thank you! The fix was very simple, and actually didn't require all the steps listed on that site.

    For anyone else having this problem, the fix is fairly simple assuming you have moderate Linux navigation know-how:

    1. Uninstall (purge) any old version of pepperflashplugin-nonfree you might have on your system.
    2. Open select "Linux (32-bit)" and then "FP 22.0 for other Linux 32-bit (.tar.gz)-PPAPI"
    3. Click the "Download now" button and put the .tar.gz file in some directory.
    4. Open the directory with your file manager & extract. (You can probably just right-click "extract here".)
    5. In the new "flash_player_ppapi_linux.i386" directory you should find (among others) and manifest.json
    Copy (as root) those two files into the system directory (you'll need to create it): /usr/lib/PepperFlash
    6. Restart Vivaldi
