  • need to upgrade the adobe flash player in Debian 6
    Computer/linux 2012.06.02 03:40

    Recently,Amazon updated their prime instant video player to use a recent Adobe flash. So I cannot watch video anymore. I can install the flash player myself, but I don't want to introduce user-customized thing into the super stable Debian 6. 

    $ aptitude show flashplugin-nonfree
    Package: flashplugin-nonfree            
    New: yes
    State: installed
    Automatically installed: no
    Version: 1:2.8.2
    Priority: optional
    Section: contrib/web
    Maintainer: Bart Martens <bartm@debian.org>
    Uncompressed Size: 135 k
    Depends: debconf | debconf-2.0, wget, gnupg, libatk1.0-0, libcairo2, libfontconfig1, libfreetype6, libgcc1, libglib2.0-0, libgtk2.0-0, libnspr4-0d, libnss3-1d, libpango1.0-0, libstdc++6, libx11-6, libxext6, libxt6, libcurl3-gnutls

    Description: Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin
     This package will download the Flash Player from Adobe.  It is a Netscape/Mozilla type plugin.  Any browser based on Netscape or Mozilla can use the Flash Player.  This package currently supports the following browsers: Mozilla, Mozilla-Firefox, Firefox, Iceweasel, and Iceape.  Also Galeon and Epiphany can use the Flash Player.  Konqueror can also use the Flash Player if konqueror-nsplugins is installed.
     
     WARNING: Installing this Debian package causes the Adobe Flash Player to be downloaded from www.adobe.com. The End User License Agreement of the Adobe Flash Player is available at www.adobe.com.Homepage: http://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer

    After looking at this package description, - will download the Flash Player from Adobe, I've got an idea to re-install the Flash Player from Adobe.
