Hello everyone,

As in the title, flash player does not work on fresh installation of SparkyLinux 4.5 LXQt with this packages installed



When issued this command locate I get this


I tried Chromium and Firefox to see if it works but without luck.
Any help would be much appreciated.


Ohoh, Flash... if there is a real pain must be it. Seriously I do not have a clue, but found a page where they were discussing something like this. It is probably a bit old, but read and see if you find something to work with. :)
Unstable OpenBoxer


For the flash part

"man update-flashplugin-nonfree"

and as root (or via sudo)

"update-flashplugin-nonfree -iv"   ###  Will update if and only if you have non-free enabled.         Result presently
upstream version is already installed

sidenote:  I loved Opera for years, over a decade, but they strayed from their in house crafted web engine and ... bleah. 
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.


I managed to make flash to work eventually. Not all the websites works but it's better than nothing.

I simply installed flash plugin downloaded from Adobe website and followed installation instruction.
