Flash plugin download fails. Bitbucket cert seems invallid

Asked by Will on 2014-12-07

I am trying to use the pipelight plugin to play protected Silverlight and Flash content on Linux.

I am using Puppy Linux 5.7.1 which is based on Ubuntu 12.04. I have followed the step by step guide by a Puppy community member posted here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=94828 and I now have Silverlight working but am having trouble with Flash.

I am using Firefox V.31.3.0 from the ESR release series, looking at Tools > Add-ons shows "Pipelight Error (flash)" and sites like Youtube revert to Flash 10.xx for Linux. I have run Firefox from the terminal, accessed Tools > Add-ons and I am pasting the output below

Based on the info reported in the lines starting "[install-dependency]" I then tryed running "pipelight-plugin --update" but got following output

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi,

it seems like you do not have the necessary DigiCert CA certificate installed. Please install the Puppy package which contains this CA certificate and run:

sudo pipelight-plugin --update
sudo pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins

The installation should now work after the next browser restart.

Michael

Thank you for your reply

I will contact the Puppy developers about adding the certificate and report back whether I am able to get this working.

Thanks again

Hello

I think I have solved this

I managed to find a package of common CA Certificates suitable for Puppy and installed to then find that your updater also needs GPG and as Puppy is a very lightweight disto this wasn't included either so I had to find and install a package for that as well after which the Pipelight updater worked OK.

I ran pipelight > create plugins then enabled Flash and now Flash 15.xxx is listed in Tools > Add-ons and seems to be used in preferance to Flash 10.xxx for Linux which is also listed. This behavier is as I wanted to achieve.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction

Thanks Michael Müller, that solved my question.

justin (j-t-scarpelli) said : #5

I have had same problem.
Fixed part of my issue running :~$ sudo pipelight-plugin --update
I found complete installation guide at: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/08/pipelight-use-silverlight-in-your-linux.html

Also, and if anyone has any advice, my cpu wants me to install/upgrade WINE with the packages wine-staging, wine-staging-i386, and wine-staging-dbg. Is this a new version of WINE? And should I uninstall my current version, wine-1.6.1, and build wine-staging from source? I initially discovered this issue when trying to upgrade wine-compholio packages, the ones required to run pipelight and the silverlight.exe for NETFLIX on Linux.

Thanks.

The official installing instructions are available at http://pipelight.net/cms/installation.html

The wine-compholio package was simply renamed to wine-staging. The package with the name wine-compholio is now only available to tell apt-get how to upgrade properly, you can safely remove it .

You can have both, wine-staging and wine1.6 installed at the same time. There is no need to remove the old version. Nevertheless, you can also use wine-staging for other programs than pipelight by using /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine instead of wine.
