The stock 64-bit flashplugin-nonfree installer now gets the new Square version, so this command also works to update it:

su -c 'update-flashplugin-nonfree --install'

So that's working again--and is the recommended method again for both 32 and 64 bit MEPIS 8.5.

Is something missing here.

Code:
[rwb@acer ~]$ su -c 'update-flashplugin-nonfree --install'
Password:
bash: update-flashplugin-nonfree: command not found

Do you have the flashplugin-nonfree package installed?

The update-flashplugin-nonfree command/script is provided by that package.

Yep, I just double checked and that is what it is showing I have.

I installed directly from adobe, not sid.

On the Debian forums, it was reported that the new release used much less CPU for a given video. It might now be using hardware acceleration for some video drivers; does anyone else see this?
