Question Flash player for PC-BSD 9.0
On my new 9.0 install, Miro doesn't seem to work and wants Flash 9.

I just tested out Miro on my minimal 9.0-Release system and it worked just fine.
Are you sure that your flash plugin is turned on?
Try "flashpluginctl on" from the command line to turn it on.

Default Installing Adobe Flash
Please would someone be so kind as to point me to Adobe Flash Player in the APPS CAFE. I need it for an application which keeps asking me for Adobe Flash Player equal or higher to version 9.
As usual I want to install by click only. I am sorry to say I do not understand this thread probably because I am a sub casual user, probably in the moron class of being. Anything more than one or two clicks and my brain freezes in matters of computing.

Regards Curtrey

There is no PBI available in the AppCafe since the Adobe Flash Player should already be installed on your system.
Try this; open up a terminal and type the following commands (one at a time):
Code:
flashpluginctl off
flashpluginctl on
That should reset the flash player plugin. Now try restarting your web browser and see if it works for you.

If not, please let us know what web browser you are using. It could be that there is some special issue with that browser, but it is confirmed to work with the "big name" browsers (firefox, chromium, opera).

Default Adobe flash player
Thank you Beanpole. I am away at present and will try your suggestion on my return home. Unfortunately, PCBSD is a no go area for my laptop. Too many problems which need fixing, above my pay rate !!!!!

Default Adobe Flash Player
One observation.The reference to Adobe Flash Player in the menu is for Adobe Flash Player Preferences. This item does not contain the Flash Player at least not to the satisfaction of the app I want it to support.

Perhaps you can tell me the version of Adobe Flash Player in the latest PCBSD 9.1. IF it is not at least 9 then my app will not accept it.

Regards

Curtrey

Here is the version of the Flash Plugin for my PC-BSD 9.1-RC3 system:
Quote:
linux-f10-flashplugin-11.2r202.243 Adobe Flash Player NPAPI Plugin
That being said, I think the plugin version is still in the 11.x series (although a bit older) for the PC-BSD 9.0-Release as well.

If it is still not working, check to make sure that the link to the plugin is appearing properly in the mozilla plugins folder (<home-dir>/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so)

Thank you.

I will not be back home until 8 Dec 2012. Your fix is for one of my desktops at home. When I get back I will try it.

Yours sincerely
