Lightspark a free open source Flash Player - lpf Local Package Factory - Adobe Flash Player info

I run Fedora Linux, on most all of my Systems. Now, Mozilla Firefox, is Blocking older versions of Adobe Flash Player. I have noticed some videos, on That, I like to watch, from time to time. Have not been working for over a month now (01-27-15). These videos, have been working and not working, on and off for for the last several months. So, I figured, it was their Site, having some kind of problems. But, today. I checked my Plugins, in Firefox and found that Adobe Flash Player was out of date. I thought. That, I had my system set to update Flash and all Apps, Automatically. Using Apper, for Yum. But maybe now. I loose track, of what I have done, on each system, sometimes. So, I installed Lightspark, A free, open source Flash player. On my Fedora 19 System. And will do this on my other Fedora Systems, as well. And I updated to the newest Security Release of the Adobe Flash Player for Mozilla Firefox. NPAPI (Extended Support Release) I Had to install the Adobe Flash update, manually. By downloading it from their Site and running the RPM file. But, I swear I haven't had to do manual updates, for a couple of years, now. Now, it shows to be up to date, in Firefox Plugin Check (Plugin Check & Updates — Mozilla) and on the Adobe Flash, site (Adobe - Flash Player Test Page). Not sure if Lightspark, will be used, automatically, now. But, looks like it could be a replacement for Adobe Flash. I may uninstall Adobe Flash, later and see. But, I just want things to work, right now. I also installed, lpf - Local Package Factory. It may help, with the Adobe Flash Updates. Allowing them to install automatically. Without any user feedback. Not sure. I will research this more later. I found these Apps, in the Yum Extender App and read through the info on their Web Sties, linked there...

I also installed, lpf - Local Package Factory.

lpf - Local Package Factory lpf is designed to handle two separate problems:

  • Packages built from sources which does not allow redistribution
  • Packages requiring user to accept EULA-like terms.

It works by downloading sources, possibly requiring a user to accept license terms and then building and installing a rpm package locally.

A lpf package is really about two packages. The target packet is the real package doing useful work. The lpf package contains what's needed to build the target package.

The envisioned usage is that a user

  • Installs the lpf packet as normal
  • Is prompted when a update/rebuild is needed
  • When pushing the "Update" button, gets a guided tour handling EULA acceptance, building and installing the target package.
