Flashplugin is non-operational in x32



Looks like flashplugin installs the wrong architecture possibly. The plugin doesn’t show in Firefox browser after restarting. Also the Adobe flash plugin settings manager fails to launch.

[Unstable Update x32] 2017-12-21 - Kernels

Confirmed with flashplugin=

Rebuilt package incoming to x32-unstable. PR made to arch32 packages:

Please test:

sudo pacman -U https://mirror.netzspielplatz.de/manjaro/packages/x32-unstable/extra/i686/flashplugin-


That works now. Can you take a look at pepper-flash I susspect the same there. :slight_smile:


That package was pushed the same time, just:

sudo pacman -U https://mirror.netzspielplatz.de/manjaro/packages/x32-unstable/extra/i686/pepper-flash-





Needs updating again…stuck at 28…137


In future, please report any out-of-date packages here:

This thread is already “Solved”. :wink:

I’ll look at updating the plugin if there’s a new version available; it hasn’t been updated upstream yet.

Edit: new version in x32-unstable, it will be in x32-testing shortly. I’m building Firefox 58.0.2 now so I can snap everything over to x32-stable later today.
