dCore-flash-installer
« on: April 21, 2017, 04:25:34 PM »
Now that Adobe has picked back up on the Linux version of Flash, getFlash11 is now renamed as dCore-flash-installer and installs the NPAPI Flash version 25.x.   It creates an SCE called flashplayer.sce.  Tested the installer and also once loaded with Firefox.

With such a fast moving target, I will soon make dCore-flash-installer behave and operate like dCore-java-installer so it is broken much less often.

dCore-flash-installer is updated and now behaves like dCore-java-installer where a web browser is opened to the download page and the ".tar.gz for Linux" option is selected and downloaded.  There are some improvements made here I will add to dCore-java-installer as well. The download path changed again since my previous post, this should stabilize it a bit.

Run "dCore-flash-installer -h" for a help menu and list of options.

When run from the menu or when issuing "dCore-flash-installer" from the command line will let you choose which available browser to run and it will open the Adobe Flash download page so you can choose the ".tar.gz for Linux" option and download the needed flash player .tar.gz file.  If more than one exists in /home or /tmp a menu will appear to choose which file.

"dCore-flash-installer -e" when used at the command line will use an existing downloaded flash player from the site, if more than one a menu will open allowing you to choose which file to use.

"dCore-flash-installer -b" from the command line will add the resulting flashplayer.sce extension to sceboot.lst.
