 Adobe must think Linux users are a bunch of retards. It took them several days to release an update for their legacy Flash Player plugin for Linux – took them so long actually that Mozilla decided to block Flash in their Firefox browser. Now that’s a statement. Finally, here are the Slackware packages for flashplayer-plugin version 11.2.202.491. This […]

Just before going to bed with a belly full of good red wine and lamb roast, I noticed the new Adobe Flash security bulletin: apsb15-09. I could not ignore that, so I prepared Slackware packages for you to address this new bulletin. As usual, the packages offer a Flash plugin for the chromium browser (PPAPI) […]

Monthly Flash Player security updates

Pepper Flash for Chromium: Chrome was updated because of a Flash security bulletin from Adobe. The new Slackware package for chromium-pepperflash-plugin has version 16.0.0.257.     Linux Flash for Mozilla-compatibles: The “legacy” Linux NPAPI plugin for Mozilla-compatible browsers was updated as well – never leaving version 11. My Slackware package for the flashplayer-plugin went “up” […]
