update-flashplugin-nonfree - program to get the newest Adobe Flash Player
 

SYNOPSIS

update-flashplugin-nonfree --status
 
update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
 
update-flashplugin-nonfree --uninstall
 

DESCRIPTION

The program update-flashplugin-nonfree takes care of downloading last minute information from Debian about suitable versions, removing the installed Adobe Flash Plugin if it has been reported as insecure, or, if a newer suitable version is available, downloading a newer Adobe Flash Player and its installer from the Adobe download site, run the downloaded installer to install the Adobe Flash Player on the local system, and then move the installed files to where they fit on a Debian system.
A copy of the downloaded .tar.gz is saved in /var/cache/flashplugin-nonfree for later reuse.
The program update-flashplugin-nonfree is used in the postinst and prerm scripts of the Debian package, but this program can also be run manually by root.
