Apparently there's a way to configure the wrapper to look in places other than the defaults. I'll do some digging on it today and see what I can come up with.

I'm not positive that will work on firefox.

These are the paths where the slack packages places the stuff at

Code: [Select]

We can certainly copy these over to FF, but like I said... i'm almost positive it wont work.

OK. Got to digging. The wrapper does not include pepperflash. It just looks for it in the default locations that Chrome installs it to.

Installed chrome. Still not finding it.

I did find this:

Problem is, I did install that package but cannot find the required file using find. So it's doubtful that the package worked.

Don't know what's going on with this one. Firefox still doesn't recognize it.

Going to clone the github project and see if a local build works.

Flash wasn't installed. So not sure what the deal was.

I'll remove the old package and install the new one and see what happens.

You may need to uninstall the flashplugin package to avoid conflict (not sure if that's necessary, but just to be safe)

You can find the current firefox-50.0.1 on 7.2 untested.

Here is the re-built package with the corrected path.

To test this, maybe after you remove flash player, and restarting firefox, visit a website that requires flash and see what happens.

OK. On VL64-7.2, the wrapper file is being written to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. It should be written to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins.

Copied the file over and Firefox isn't picking it up for some reason.

The digging continues.

Oh.. And where the hell is Firefox current? I HATE using the ESR version.

Welp, it appeared to install OK, but it's not showing up in Firefox as a plugin.

Lemme dig and see what's going on with it.

Try it out and see how it works for you.

I did a test build for Vector 7.2.  You can find the builds here

Click on the 'Passed' button and navigate to the build for your architecture ("32-bit or 64-bit") in the next page (it should be obvious to you).  When you find the build you need, click the 'Passed' button on the far left of that row.  That will take you to the actual build page.

When you see the build log, look to the right of the page, and under 'Build artifacts', click "Browse".  That will get you to the actual package.

Heck, here


Let me know if you are not running 7.2, I can try to have it built on 7.1 also, idk how that would go though.

Let us know if this works

Seen that.  I think it's a cool experiment and exposes a real security risk present in most computers... but also extends beyond that.... these days, TV's, cars, and everything comes with a USB port.... it's only a matter of time before people start using these things to destroy stuff.
