[Solved]Latest update broke Flash

  • Latest stable Opera update broke Flash.
    I thought it was supposed to go only in December?
    I need it to play my online game.
    (I use Ubuntu 18.04.5)

  • Hi @yakuzakyuu, first of all, please make sure you have installed the latest version of the plugin (sometimes, when it's too old the Opera may refuse to use it, usually for security reasons).

    At the time being the latest version is 32.0.0.433. If you can't update to it for some reasons, you can download it from this official link.

    Unpack the files "libpepflashplayer.so" and "manifest.json" from the archive, and copy/move them to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin.

    Launch the Opera, go to https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about (or the website on which you play your game), click on "Plug-in was blocked" icon on the right of the URL, and select "Manage Flash settings", then turn on the switch on the right of "Ask first", go back to the website and click on the Flash content and select "Allow".

    Please be aware, that using the Flash plugin may be risky and quite unsafe, especially on not well know websites.

    Please also note that "Your Flash settings will be kept until you quit Opera", so you will have to repeat the above steps every time you relaunch the browser.

  • Thank you for your help!

  • @yakuzakyuu You're welcome ;-)
    Does that mean that this helped in your case?

  • Yes.

  • @yakuzakyuu Good, nice to hear that!
