Hi all,
I have just read the possibility to have flash 11.3 for those who use chromium (in my case 21.0.1180.11) typing this command:
Code:
mkdir /usr/lib/PepperFlash
cd /usr/lib/PepperFlash
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/964512/misc/chromium11.3/manifest.json
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/964512/misc/chromium11.3/libpepflashplayer.so

Source: http://www.lffl.org/2012/06/installare-flash-player-113-su-chromium.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+LinuxFreedomForLive+%28LinuX+Freedom+for+Live%29&utm_content=Google+Reader

I have tried on my gentoo box but nothng changed still with 11.2. Has anyone tried?

Thanks

Copy libpepflashplayer.so and manifest.json somewhere.

Edit /etc/chromium/default with your pepperflash path:
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--ignore-gpu-blacklist --ppapi-flash-path=/put_your_pepper_flash_path_here".

Disable npapi flash in chrome://plugins/.

YT says that i have accelerated video rendering. This is on gma950 with gallium3d. I think that opengl 2.0 is minimum for acceleration, which i915g supports.

Flash has never been so smooth on linux like with pepper flash.

You could also copy libpdf.so to /usr/lib/chromium-browser/ for pdf support.

This is tested on chromium x86 20.0.1132.43. It reports that i hava flash 11.3*.

It would be nice if gentoo had ebuild for this or use flags.

Interesting... I did not know about that --ppapi-flash-path parameter. I'll have to try that out.

Thanks for reply, for me worked adding "--ppapi-flash-path=/home/vasco/Images/libpepflashplayer.so" to chromium flags

It would be great to have an ebuild for pepper flash instead of adobe flash

In my opinion pepperflash is a way better, I don't have any more the blue-red problem, and all the browser seems better (can be a mine impression).

Does it work properly for anyone with nvidia twinview setup? I tested it like 3 days ago with both latest and 295* drivers, and in full screen I got something looking like a left-half of the video in the right half of the screen. And no accelerated video decoding too. But aside from that - quite smoth. And you can have full screen video on one screen and do something on the other, to bad that is only a half of the video for me :wink:

seems like this would be tricky to get to run with ~amd64 / x86_64

just download the lastest google-chrome build for x86_64 (eg. --fetchonly --nodeps), extract it and copy those two files mentioned it the first post.

Hmmm... l when I install both google-chrome and chromium, and then configure chromium to use the libpepflashplayer.so installed by google-chrome I see different flash versions reported in chrome://plugins

google-chrome-21.0.1180.57_p148591

Code:
Flash (2 files) - Version: 11.3.31.222
Shockwave Flash 11.3 r31
Name:   Shockwave Flash
Description:   Shockwave Flash 11.3 r31
Version:   11.3.31.222
Location:   /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so
Type:   PPAPI (out-of-process)

Name:   Shockwave Flash
Version:   11.2 r202
Location:   /opt/Adobe/flash-player/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
Type:   NPAPI


vs chromium-21.0.1180.57

Code:
Flash (2 files) - Version: 11.2.999.999
Shockwave Flash 11.2 r999
Name:   Shockwave Flash
Description:   Shockwave Flash 11.2 r999
Version:   11.2.999.999
Location:   /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so
Type:   PPAPI (out-of-process)

Name:   Shockwave Flash
Version:   11.2 r202
Location:   /opt/Adobe/flash-player/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
Type:   NPAPI


Looks like the version reporting is bogus. Flash works fine, and right clicking in a flash plugin window says reports the version as 11.3.31.222 in both browsers.

I took the "easy" route and installed google-chrome in parallel


a headsup:


Code:
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--ignore-gpu-blacklist --ppapi-flash-path=/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so"


worked for me



whereas

Code:
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--ignore-gpu-blacklist --ppapi-flash-path=/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/"


reported the correct plugin but it wouldn't work - showed an error message

weird :?

[~] $ grep CHROMIUM_FLAGS /etc/chromium/default     
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib64/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so --ppapi-flash-version='11.3.31.222'"
[~] $


add --ppapi-flash-version='11.3.31.222' to CHROMIUM_FLAGS that will show the correct version of flash

As history has shown us, decoupling a shared object from its version leads to famine, plague and ass pain for everyone. Ignoring the manifest doesn't seem too clever either.

So what's the deal then? the bundled with chrome version is preferred over the adobe one still?
Sorry to bump on an old thread.

Personal preference I think.
The chrome one is kept up to date with all other platforms though rather then just security updates.


Also, there a package www-plugins/chrome-binary-plugins in tree for pepperflash and chrome pdf if you don't want to download and move stuff manually for chromium.
