Flash links are done, still not enabled

Unread postby Dylanlip » Sat, 13 Jun 2015, 17:24

Using Pale Moon 25.5.0 on Fedora 22 x64 4.0.4, and I just can't get flash to show up.

I've got 32 and 64-bit flash-plugin 11.2.202.466-release installed from adobe rpms, and have all proper symbolic links for /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins with the proper respective flash versions linked. Steam detects and picks up flash correctly, but not Pale Moon for some reason.

Just tried lpf-flash-player which installed flash-plugin 11.2.202.460-1.fc22 after I removed the version above, and still nothing. Not even disabling extensions.blocklist.enabled does the trick. Is there a setting I'm missing? Is there some output I could show to help me out? Is it the appended "fc22" to the version number that tricks PaleMoon?

Please post the output of:

Are you using some custom build configured with some custom options?

Also, post the output of:

Code: Select all

file /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
readlink -e /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

Re-installing from the installer and using a fresh profile seems to have the same effect.

Code: Select all

$ file /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins: directory


Code: Select all

readlink -e /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

I see that you have installed both 32 and 64 bit versions of Flash, which likely means that you have the 64-bit version in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins, but PM doesn't read from there.

Please add the following to /etc/profile:

Code: Select all

export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins

Aha! There we are! All working now. I'll need to keep a note of the solution for later installs.

When I have a bit more time, I might send in a PR for the installer to do this automatically.

(My other PR is still sitting around, though...)
