After updating to Firefox 13, Chromium started displaying the following error “The Flash plug-in was blocked because it was out of date.”
Needles to say, this is quite annoying. I checked the latest version of Chrome 64-bit Linux libflashplayer.so, which is currently at v.22.214.171.124.
Fixing the Problem
Updating using Adobe’s version did not work for me. However, installing the Linux package flashplugin-nonfree did the trick.
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
You may have to add the “Restricted Extras” package to your software sources. However, the Terminal output from the command shows that data are downloaded from Firefox, Ubuntu Archive and Adobe.
You can add a flag to Chrome/Chromium launcher that allows outdated plugins. Right-click your browser launcher and add the following statement
- How to monitor file/folder access using auditd
- Install Cinnamon and Firefox to Debian 7
- Debian 7 mirror now live nwlinux.us
- Major changes to nwlinux.us applications repository
- MiniDLNA added to NW Linux application repository
