  • I have confirmed that installing adobe-flashplugin will give Opera version 21 of Flash (and will not interfere with the old NPAPI version 11 which Firefox is using). I suspect this is merely a new name being used for the pepperflash plugin.

  • Hi jamesisin,

    Don't forget to add NoFlash for Opera browser from Opera's store. This will help protect you from Flash when you don't want Flash to be active.

    Did you get a chance to read this form the BBC yesterday?

  • VMware (for no apparent reason) is still using Flash for their Web interfaces (like Horizon View Administrator and vSphere). It's about the only reason I need it on my work machine. I do hope they stop.

    As to NoFlash, I just change plugins to click-to-run and use exceptions for my sites.

  • Hi jamesisin,

    I can't believe that CBS News is still using Flash, but it is. I'll be glad when Flash is gone too.

    Hi there, @jamesisin! For me, adobe-flashplugin gave only flash version 11 to my Opera browser. In order to get the flash up-to-date, I had to purge adobe-flashplugin and install pepperflash. To remove adobe-flashplugin:

    sudo apt-get remove --purge adobe-flashplugin
    

    To install pepper-flashplugin:

    sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
    

    Well, that was when I still had Linux Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Upgrading the distro till 16.04 LTS, all the problems seemed to vanish just like that. And yeah, both of them 64-bit. Cheers!
