Flash-player-problem AGAIN :-/

  • When are we going to get a working solution to get Flash-player working in Linux? Every time i get different answers. Are users of Vivaldi using Adobe Flash-plugin, or are we using Google Pepperflash? Since Vivaldi is an Google Chrome-clone, i tought we must use Google Pepperflash, but when i read forums then i read about Adobe Flash. What is the truth about this? The day Flash is permanently killed, destroyed, buried and forgotten, then i will open a bottle of expensive Champagne. So to my problem: System: OpenSUSE Tumbleweed 64bits Vivaldi: 1.4.589.29 (Stable channel) (64-bit) -- Best regars, Ronny Simonsen Narvik - Norway

  • Hi, I am on Opensuse Leap 42.1 and Flash or other formats are always working for me because I have Chrome stable installed.
    Not Chromium!
    Vivaldi takes Flash from the Chrome install and so all is working.
    I used Pepperflash before but broke often after updates/ Netflix not working and so forth.
    Btw. I have Flash disabled per default, it is not often used anymore.

    Cheers, mib

  • You need pepperflash. For netflix, amazon video you must have widevine install too.

  • Vivaldi Team

    Install the Official Adobe Flash package:

    sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu `lsb_release -sc` partner" 
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install adobe-flashplugin

    If you have Vivaldi older than 1.4.589.41, create a symlink so that it is found:

    sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/PepperFlash
    sudo ln -fs /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so /usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so
