I'm replacing Ubuntu 12.04 with Sparkylinux...

Hello all,  Was wondering what flash player Sparkylinux uses?  Is there a list of apps on Sparky that I could look at?

Thank You



Well, you need non-free enabled, which Sparky does.  "man update-flashplugin-nonfree" to learn how. "update-flashpplugin-nonfree -iv" as root or sudo to install or upgrade.  That gets you the Adobe non-free binary.  There are other options.  Pretty much the same as what you have in Ubuntu, only probably newer, much newer than your 12.-04.

Everything that is in Debian testing is available.  A few odd ball things in Ubuntu like plank are missing, but what is a few odd programs out of maybe 10,000 programs. 

For the Sparky add-ons investigate the main Sparky web site. 

You might want to wait 2-3 more days to install, several transitions occurring, but the slower pace of the "freeze" will settle in  soon.  peace out.

FYI, the easiest way to totally destroy a a Debian or Sparky system is to include Ubuntu ppas. 

What DE?  KDE is under the heaviest development, but the freeze is coming.  I am partial to LXQT and it's base of QT5.

Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.
