Flash plugin

flash-player-propertiesLatest Adobe Flash plugin package for supported Fedora and RHEL/CentOS distributions.

Package information

This package tries to comply as maximum to the Fedora Packaging Guidelines; this means the packages has debuginfo packages, default Fedora’s GCC compile time options (where possible) and standard locations for binaries, data and docs.

Features:

  • Separate Control Center integration package for the native architecture (64 bit/32 bit).
  • No copying of the plugin around the filesystem after the package is installed; installation in the original Adobe package is all done in %post section!
  • 32 bit plugin can also be installed along the 64 bit one in a 64 bit environment; this is useful for example with the 32 bit Steam client or 32 bit browsers.

Supported distributions:

  • RHEL/CentOS 6 – i686/x86_64
  • RHEL/CentOS 7 – x86_64
  • Fedora 19 – i686/x86_64
  • Fedora 20 – i686/x86_64

Installation

To install the repository on a supported Fedora distribution, run as root the following command:

# wget http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-flash-plugin.repo -O \
    /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-flash-plugin.repo

For installation on CentOS and Redhat Enterprise Linux:

# wget http://negativo17.org/repos/epel-flash-plugin.repo -O \
    /etc/yum.repos.d/epel-flash-plugin.repo

Then, to install the plugin, perform the following commands:

# yum -y install flash-plugin
# setsebool -P unconfined_mozilla_plugin_transition=off

If you are on a 64 bit system and would like to have the 32 bit plugin as well, launch the following command:

# yum -y install flash-plugin.i686

For the control center, install the flash-plugin-properties package.
