Re: Flash Player not working

Does Flash appear in about:plugins (in Firefox)?
Also in Tools>Add-ons, it should appear under 'Extensions'.

Re: Flash Player not working

After you installed the adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm repo, did you then do?:
Code:
yum install flash-plugin

After installing the rpm, did you do

Code:
 yum install flash-plugin
The rpm sets up the adobe flash repository but does not install the flash plugin, if I recall correctly.

Re: Flash Player not working

The reason you had all that trouble is because you should not use the "glob" character "*" without escaping it with a backslash. Otherwise the shell interprets * to mean "find all the files in the current directory and insert here"

so your
Quote:
yum search flash*
ended up finding a file in your current directory starting with "flash" by coincidence (flash_plugin_20120810.txt) and that was pasted to the command and run as:
Quote:
yum search flash_plugin_20120810.txt
Try this:
Quote:
yum search flash\*
or
Quote:
yum search "flash*"
The others failed because of the missing dash.
Quote:
yum search flash-plugin
would have worked fine

Thanks for your advice.

Before advised to install "flash-plugin" I have no recorrection of its name. Therefore I started searching.

$ yum search flash\*
Code:
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Warning: No matches found for: flash*
No Matches found
$ yum "flash*"
Code:
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Warning: No matches found for: flash*
no Matches found
Still failed.

I suspect you just don't have the adobe repository installed that has the flash code. Query yum for what the repositories are it has active:
Quote:
yum repolist enabled
this should have as a repository in the list of either "adobe-linux-i386" or "adobe-linux-x86_64" depending on your Fedora architecture If it's missing, just do the steps here:

then do:
Quote:
yum install flash-plugin

1: There is no beta version of the flash plugin. 11,2,202,258 is the latest and adobe will not be updating it any more except for security updates. Now if using Chrome, it has pepper, which the latest version is 11.5.31.5

2: Setting up the adobe repo and installing the flash plugin with yum means it automatically updates when you update the system, no option to automatically update in the flash player. You can check for updates, but no option to automatically update.

3: The original poster already stated they fixed their issue.

Looks like a spammer. Several other posts with no Linux help.
