Flash player requests.
« on: July 19, 2015, 12:32:51 pm »
Considering all the talk that I have been hearing  about Flask player alternatives for Linux, such as Gnash, and LightSpark, may I humbly request that one, or both of those, be added to the repositories, if possible.

The last releases were 3 years ago for gnash and 2 years ago for lightspark. Considering the security issues with Flash, it's not gonna happen.

Gnash never did manage to follow the original vendor's unpublished ins and outs. LightSpark is usually adware/malware.

Best thing to do: Don't use flash. The sites that use it now will transition before too long. If you cannot accept that, the way of least peril is to use the original vendors' product. Explore in Firefox; there are ways to enable the flash that's there, even if it's site-by-site.

But I say again: you're far better off just leaving it alone.

You get the latest version of flash player on Linux, in Google Chrome. Same version as in Windows.
