Flash on Ubuntu+Firefox

Posted under others On By xpk

It’s the most annoying thing when every now and then, your flash version is outdated and it won’t load the pages you visit every day.

For me, this solved the problem:

First, install pepperflashplugin-nonfree. It’s avaialble from official repository on Ubuntu 14.04. But this only install the plugin for chrome.

Second, install the Fresh Player plugin from http://www.webupd8.org/2014/05/install-fresh-player-plugin-in-ubuntu.html

Restart Firefox and that’s it. Sadly, the plugin still consume a considerable amount of CPU resources. It feels faster than the official player from Adobe though.
