aarf, it would be appropriate to list the update for what it is- Security update available for Adobe Flash Player.

I vaguely remember that it was rather easy to do it.
The embarrassing thing is that despite I know it was super easy
to do it last time with help from you guys now when I need to do
it again then I have no clue how it should be done and me making
bookmark to the description fail to remember how to find that book
mark even.

I should do it but it is embarrassing to ask how do I do it again.
I rather pretend me did it than reveal I already forget how to find
that knowledge. yes I have a search in my signature but one need
to feed it the right words.

nooby- back up one of your existing libflashplayer.so files, then extract the new and overwrite the old.

Then again- you might be able to use this..

Semme you are right. Now that you remind me that was how easy
it really was. I needed your words to remind me how I did it.
I only remembered that it was super easy and not how one did it. Smile

Slacko and Lucid/3HD have the GetFlash utility by 01micko that downloads and installs the latest flashplayer. It doesn't use any extra space--it just overwrites the old libflashplayer.so. It can be used when one hears of a new flashplayer version or just every week to be safe

Here is a script to get flashplayer from the smokey01.com. I will be updating regularly. When I get behind on the news of new releases, you can just pm me.

Code:

#!/bin/sh
# Tman
# START -------
LOCATION="http://www.smokey01.com/Tman/apps/"
PACKAGE="current-Flashplayer.pet"
ABOUT_FILE="About_current-Flashplayer.txt"
set -x
clear
# check if the /tmp/pet folder exists; if not, then create it
if [ -d /tmp/pet ];then
  cd /tmp/pet
else
  mkdir /tmp/pet
  cd /tmp/pet
  sleep 1
fi
#
# download the about_file
wget $LOCATION$ABOUT_FILE
DESCRIPTION="`cat /tmp/pet/$ABOUT_FILE`"
# if about_file got downloaded then contiunue; else abort
if [ -f /tmp/pet/$ABOUT_FILE ];then
  # Ask user if he/she wished to download the package
  Xdialog --center --title "Get-Package" --icon "/usr/share/doc/flashlogo.gif" --yesno $DESCRIPTION"\n\nDo you wish to download this package?" 0 0
  if [ $? -eq 0 ];then
    rm -f /tmp/pet/*.pet 2>/dev/null #tidy-up; in case of duplicate files
    rm -f /tmp/pet/$ABOUT_FILE 2>/dev/null
    rm -f /tmp/pet/wget-log* 2>/dev/null
    sleep 1
    #get the package_file
    rxvt -e wget $LOCATION$PACKAGE
    #make sure the file downloaded
    sleep 1
    if [ -f /tmp/pet/$PACKAGE ];then
      # if wget error message exists
      if [ -f /tmp/pet/wget-log ]; then
        Xdialog --title Abort --beep --msgbox " The download has been cancelled." 0 0
        # tidy-up after user cancels wget download
        rm -f /tmp/pet/$PACKAGE 2>/dev/null
        rm -f /tmp/pet/$ABOUT_FILE 2>/dev/null
        rm /tmp/pet/wget-log* 2>/dev/null
      # if download wasn't cancelled, continue with install
      else
        cp /tmp/pet/$PACKAGE /tmp/pet/package.pet
        /usr/local/petget/installpkg.sh /tmp/pet/package.pet
        yaf-splash -bg orange -text "Refreshing menus, please wait..." &
        fixmenus
        Xdialog --title Success! --beep --msgbox "If you want to keep a copy of the downloaded file,
        please move it from the /tmp/pet folder to your desired location." 0 0
        rox /tmp/pet
      fi
    #if file didn't download
    else
    Xdialog --title Notice --beep --msgbox " An error occured while trying to download the package." 0 0
    fi
  # when user says no to downloading the package, remove the about_file
  else
    rm -f /tmp/pet/$ABOUT_FILE 2>/dev/null
  fi
# if the about file isn't downloaded, abort
else
Xdialog --center --title "Abort" --msgbox "The location of the target file was not found.\n\nEither the file is missing, or you are not connected to the internet." 0 0
fi
# END ---


I will make a pet at a later time, but I'm feeling lazy today as I did quite a few hours of work on my new pup yesterday.

The script gets the 'current-Flashplayer.pet' from here.

EDIT: sorry the code I previously uploaded was an older version. I have corrected it and have tested to confirm it works.

As promised, here is the pet to install the adobe flashplayer plugin.
This one gets it from the smokey01 repo, so you not need to worry about Adobe changing the location or name of the target file. And I will keep it up to date.

I hope this is the right thread...anyway I installed the Install Flashplayer pet from the 5.28 thread link. It worked great, but the wording of the GUI instructions don't quite match the selections on Adobe's website. It might be confusing for newbies who aren't sure of their Linux version, 32-bit vs 64-bit etc.

I've included a screenshot of the GUI vs the webpage wording for clarity.

Subject description: Much gratitude
 

I just wanted to give a proper thanks to "tman" for his flash player 11 installation pet. I was at my wits end, as far as installing flash and was on
the verge of pulling out all my hair. since my head is shaved clean, I was
almost entirely without hope. Thanks to you My problem is solved.

Thank you.
