Yesterday I installed Fedora 27 on my laptop, so I am really new to Fedora (less than 24h experience). I tried installing adobe flashplayer, however I stumbled upon a problem.

Firstly, I read on this site, previous posts such as this one and this one as well, sadly both were unsuccessful. The error messages that I received were as follow: the first link explained how to install flash-plugin, but for some odd reason it did nothing. It installed it successfully, but was not recognized by mozila. The second topic gave the following error message curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found error: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kub... : import read failed(2). and again got me no where.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Well; PostInstallerF merged its efforts to UnitedRPMs; Then the repository is oudated since Fedora 25. If the sticky doesn't work for you ; I suggest other option, UnitedRPMs, provides the updated flashplugin working in Firefox 57.0 .

1) Enable the repository; instructions here.

2) Install Fresh Player


dnf -y install freshplayerplugin

3) Enable Flash plugin (always activate)

You can get it from adobe web site/

Select the yum version and when installing the downloaded rpm, you will get a new repository where you can just use dnf to install and update flash. There are new updates on the repository released regularly.

Current version is flash-plugin-

Flash is dying, slowly but surely. Until it is completely dead I personally use Google Chrome for all "Adobe Flash needs" since it has Flash support built-in.

You can download Google Chrome from https://www.google.com/chrome/index.html , select RPM version. After it is downloaded simply install it with:

sudo dnf install Downloads/google-chrome...

Adapt command to match exact path to Google Chrome package.
