How to install and enable Adobe flash player plugin on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Linux - LinuxConfig.org


#1

Scroll down to section "5. Verify whether Flash Player is installed". Hit "Activate Adobe Flash" and click on "Allow Now" to enable flash player only for a current website or click "Allow and Remember" to enable Flash Player on all websites:

This link: -https://helpx.adobe.com/fla... - results firstly, the page loads correctly for 1-2 seconds then crashes with this message: - Gah. Your tab just crashed. - i’m assuming this crash message is from Firefox not Adobe.

I’m afraid that this hasn’t worked for me. Xubuntu, actually. I’ve tried several different suggestions, including Adobe’s own APT package and the .tar.gz package. When I installed,

The following packages will be REMOVED: adobe-flash-properties-gtk adobe-flashplugin

and then the new package installed. On the flash-player.html page, step 2 says that it’s not installed (it says the same after the Adobe install too). Step 5: no “Activate Adobe Flash” comes up, no clouds come up in the animation, just a two-circling-arrows icon. If I click on that icon, it refreshes the page to no effect. Rebooting the VM does not help. Would anyone have any suggestions about what else to try?

EDIT:
An answer elsewhere said “browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash does currently not work with recent versions of Firefox”. I uninstalled it and the tree / cloud animation works now. Unfortunately, the Flash game that I want to play still doesn’t work, but at least there’s this much progress.
