I cannot use Soundcloud and Mixcloud because of Adobe Flash player with Opera 39.0 on Ubuntu 12.0

  • Hi,

    I've just installed Opera 39.0 on my laptop, on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Something is wrong with Adobe flash player when I go to Soundcloud or Mixcloud sites. But when I use Firefox, both sites work......

    I read some instructions about a file called libflashplayer.so which I found finally and I was supposed to copy that file in a folder called /usr/lib/....opera/plugins (forgotname exactly now). There is no such folder !!

    Then I went to the address opera://plugins but there is only a Chromium pdf viewer there !!

    Where should I put that file, in which folder of Opera ???

    I am not a specialist, just an user. Could please describe me step by step what to do.

    Thanks,

    Peter

  • Firefox and Opera use different types of plugins, the one for Firefox will not work with Opera. You need the one for Chromium, commonly called "pepperflash".

  • ok..... thank you. But where is this pepperflash, how do I install it and how can make Opera to find it. I forgot to add that I am on ubuntu 32 bit and as far as I know google do not make updates for 32 bit. I removed Chrome some time ago.

  • Older versions of Ubuntu listed pepperflash separately; newer versions will update both types of flash at the same time. Look in your package manager and see if you can find pepperflash-nonfree. If you can - that is it. If not, then reinstall Adobe flash.

  • I've similar problems as you said & solved by the instructions from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Chromium/Getting-Flash . Hope it will solve your problems too .
