Also /usr/share/applications (and see if there's a 'palemoon.desktop' file). Delete this, then run

Code:
fixmenus


...in the terminal, followed by re-starting 'X'. This will remove the Menu entry for Palemoon. Also /usr/share/pixmaps, too, and delete the Palemoon icon (if there is one).

Please heed bigpup's advice. After you've removed those, run pFind, and see if there's anything else showing. It should all be gone by now, but.....you never know.

Thanks for the response! I remembered the 'whereis' command and it
found the symlink and the directory it pointed to. Deleted those!

Your noted directories had left over files and many more were found with pfind (with a lower case F).

Thanks again for your help!

Needless to say, the latest version of Flashplayer (31.0.0.108) is available in the correct location for any Mozilla-based browser to find, and use.

Here's the rub. Trying to play music on Radiotunes' website (https://www.radiotunes.com) results in the following banner at the top of the window:-

"Oops, it appears your browser does not support playback of mp3 & m4a audio files necessary to use our service. Please consider trying a different browser for the best playback experience."


Try an older version of flashplayer plugin. I think that the latest version will not work with old libraries because of "system requirements".

Hi, watchdog.

An older version, huh? Hm. That doesn't surprise me. Not in the slightest. Kinda makes sense, in a way.....I've only noticed this problem with Mozilla-based browsers in recent months.

I wish they were as predictable as Chrome, with PepperFlash. I run an ancient version of Chrome (26!!!) in Lucid. Won't run a newer version.

That creaky old browser is as happy as a sandboy with the very newest PepperFlash. It's also happy with very old versions. Doesn't complain at all. The Mozilla browsers, on the other hand, complain like holy hell if Flashplayer isn't bang up to-date.....even in relatively old Pups.

(*sheesh*)

How far back d'you reckon I should go? I can have my choice of every version Adobe ever built, y'know... What should I make the cut-off point? Back to good old 11.2.202.644.....or the first of the 'modern' Linux Flashplayers (around 24/25?)

I don't know. Try first 11.2.202.644. Then 24/25. I do not install flashplayer anymore. Rerwin already noticed that problem.

I've given up trying to get Flash working in Palemoon 28.1.0 in Racy. Nothing seems to work. And since I only use it for that one site (Radiotunes.com) - and I already have a solution for it - I can live with it.

Just made an interesting discovery. I use the final Linux version of Adobe Reader for PDF files. Apparently, using this also gives me a plugin for all Mozilla-based browsers. When I want to view PDFs in the browser, it automatically opens in Adobe Reader.....but in the browser, rather than the desktop app. Which is neat.

All you have to do is go into the Adobe directory in /opt, locate the /Reader 9/Browser directory, and click on the

Code:
install_browser_plugin


...shell script. This uses wget to download the nppdf.so module from Adobe (it's still available), and puts it in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for you.





It works with any Gecko-based browser; I just found this out in Palemoon a few minutes ago.

Nice one!

Anybody interested in Adobe's Reader 9 for PDFs, you can find .pet or SFS at my Mediafire a/c, here.

These will work in 64-bit Pups, too, if you have the 32-bit_compat_libs SFS loaded.

Subject description: Lastest Palemoon 28.1.0 64bit won't activate
 

Hi all,
I'm attempting to follow this thread, but, need a little help here.

machine: HP Pavilion dm1-3000 4gb RAM
Distro: Tahrpup-6.0.5 updated - kernel 3.14.56

The Palemoon menu updater for the last couple of months wouldn't update the old 25.x.x 32 bit browser.
The error message said the latest edition of Palemoon isn't accessible.

So, I downloaded the latest 28.1.0 64 bit release from the Palemoon site, extracted it and placed it in 'downloads'.
I 'deleted' 25.x.x 32 bit in /opt
I 'moved' 28.1.0 64 bit to /opt

No joy in activating.

I tried moving 28.1.0 folder to mnt/home and rebooting as suggested in this thread, but, again no joy.
The reason I was updating to 28.1.0 is I too was having Youtube issues with the older 25.x.x 32 bit browser. The issues were both Flash and forever buffering among other annoying slow downs.

How to activate 28.1.0 64 bit?

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

Tahrpup-6.0.5 - 32 bit or 64 bit?
You cannot run 64 bit software on a 32 bit OS.
You probably know this, but always worth checking the obvious first Wink

You are right.
It appears that the Tahrpup-6.0.5 is 32 bit.
I've forgotten what the console code is in order to check bit configuration, but, I see no indications that is 64bit.
However, the Palemoon download site only offers 64 or 86 bit linux downloads.
Where does the 32bit Palemoon download live?

The one marked "Download x86 tar.bz2 (direct download)" on this page is the link to the 32 bit download.

Thanks all,
Issue solved. The correct 32bit Palemoon 28.1.0 download is the answer.
http://linux.palemoon.org/download/mainline/

It's been so long since I've had any issues with Tahrpup. I'd set the little HP Pavilion dm1 up with a 32 bit os several years ago. Then later I set my larger main machine with 64bit os and forgot I'd done so.


Very Happy

I'd suggest that those of us who forget little things like that form a club, and get together
once a year. But, I'd forget to attend. Rolling Eyes

Sky Aisling, you must be some kind of advertising guru, because you just served us the best reason for switching to a Tahrpup that I have seen so far! Exclamation Laughing

mikeslr, I am sure I agree to whatever something you said.

I add a script in /root/Startup to warn me what cpu architecture my PC is running on.

Script is:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
sleep 4
grep -qw lm /proc/cpuinfo && gxmessage  "CPU check -
You are running a 32bit Puppy on 64bit capable hardware.
This is not a problem but I just thought I should let you know ..." || gxmessage  "CPU check - You are running a 32bit Puppy on 32bit capable hardware. No problemo !"
