Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the default browser on Elementary OS 0.2 Luna is Midori.In this article I will show you how to install the Flash Player Plugin in Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, needed for Midori, in order to be available to watch youtube videos and many others.
Do the following tweakings and everythings should work like a charm:
First, install the flash player plugin and nspluginwrapper:
$ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer nspluginwrapper
Get Flash Player Ready:
$ sudo nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
$ nspluginwrapper -v -a -n -i
Update: Lewis Goddard has created a script that fixes flash in Midori if the above does not work for you here. Just follow the instructions provided there: https://gist.github.com/lewisgoddard/6223985
thank you for the tip!
Yes the script is there. Do you mind to share me how i can use the script then? Sorry for the silly question. Beginner here, interested to Linux since met Elementary OS. Thanks in advance if you would like to provide me step by step instruction accordingly 😀
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock – open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
do sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock, and repeat the commands.
Thank you very much for the tip!
I can’t get it work, when I tipe this:
sudo nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
I get this message:
nspluginwrapper: no appropriate viewer found for /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
Any idea how to solve this?
just want to say thanks for the post, just what i was looking for and very much appreciated 🙂
