So grab it manually. A quick Pfind for "libflashplayer.so" will tell you where to extract the new one.

Or try the Adobe Flash Player Auto Updater

I think it would be better if getflash didn't fail completely and still let you pick one of the other 3 options if the newest isn't found. I normally use 10.3 anyway, but also have 23 beta laying around (link is here). Geoffrey's algorithm seems to find the latest 11.2 even when Adobe changes the url (which it seems to be doing a lot lately) so maybe that could be added too.

Hi, Sailor.

To be perfectly honest, with Geoff's auto-updater it doesn't matter what version of FlashPlayer you've got installed; as long as you've got something for the script to check against & compare with, it'll always get you the up-to-date, current version. Simples!

It even offers you the current version of 11.2.202.xxx if you've got the beta of 23 installed.

And if you want 10.3, I believe there's a .pet for that one in Oscar's Smokey repo:-

http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks/

Grab yrself a copy and keep it somewhere safe; that way you've always got it handy.

------------------------------------

I've said it many times already, and I'll re-iterate it again; I hate having to use Adobe's players, of whatever flavour. But while there's still a multitude of sites that insist on using it, you don't have much option.

I think the funniest thing I actually came across the other day was a site that had a big banner at the top, saying 'If you insist on using that browser (IE, of course) on this site, don't expect to be able to navigate around the site. We loathe the way that Microsoft has attempted to manipulate the web for its own devices, so this is our way of saying f*** you, M$.'

Straight up, those were the exact words they used!

Anyway, I shall continue to try and make the use of PepperFlash as easy as I can for as many Puppy newcomers as possible (and even some of the less vocal 'regulars'). And Geoff's script does the same job for FlashPlayer.

There's no need to make things any more awkward than we have to..... Laughing


Mike. Wink

Run this in a terminal to get the latest flash download link
Code:
wget -q -N -P /tmp/latest_flash_update adobe.com/software/flash/about/

LATEST_VERSION=`cat /tmp/latest_flash_update/index.html | grep -A2 Linux | grep [0-9] | awk -F '[><]' '{print $3}' | tr -d "\n"`

echo fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/"$LATEST_VERSION"/install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz

Had a look at the getflash script, this should work retrieving either the 32bit or 64bit version url
Code:
ARCH=$(uname -m)

case "$ARCH" in
 i?86) BIT="i386" ;;
 *64) BIT="x86_64" ;;
 *)exit 1 ;;
esac
wget -q -N -P /tmp/latest_flash_update adobe.com/software/flash/about/

LATEST_VERSION=`cat /tmp/latest_flash_update/index.html | grep -A2 Linux | grep [0-9] | awk -F '[><]' '{print $3}' | tr -d "\n"`

echo fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/"$LATEST_VERSION"/install_flash_player_11_linux."$BIT".tar.gz

PostPosted: Fri 21 Oct 2016, 13:10    Post subject: getflash-1.6
Subject description: Updates URLS, supports 64-bit versions
 

Here is an updated getflash that uses Geoffrey's method of obtaining the flash player and adds ASRI's 64-bit old version. The updated configuration file is now /etc/getflash.conf. The configuration file update option is removed, at least until the file becomes supported similarly to the getflash-conf file.

It tested successfully in xenial, tahr pup and slacko, both 32- and 64-bit versions. And it works in Wary 5.5.

EDIT: It mostly works, too, in precise and lucid. But the older flashplayer versions cannot be accessed. However, I could make a separate package that would fix that, if there is any interest. I assume that the main use of getflash is to get the latest version of flashplayer.

Please report any problems or recommendations. Thanks.
Richard

Bonjour,
Looking at the "Adobe Flash Player Auto Updater" created by Geoffrey on one hand, and the latest release of "GetFlashPlayer" by rerwin on the other (many thanks! Smile), I was wondering if it could be convenient to merge them (more) in a single application to get the advantages of both...
So, I adapted the first one to a blinking systray notification icon (instead of the original GUI), that is displayed only if new FP version detected/available. Getflash can be executed by clicking on it. Then, I added a button to the second, allowing user to enable/disable this notification as well as, temporarily, a check box to download/install the latest beta FP version.
For more details, please look at Arrow this thread on the French Forum.
Thanks for your attention.

Cordialement.
