Opera 58.0.3135.90 and flash player


I would like to use flash player in opera browser. I tried to install from the adobe official site, but it said, the manifest version is not correct.
Do you have any other information what can I do?


Hello @sgfdhsg, welcome to the forum!

Can you please provide the error message? Was this with dnf or gnome-software that you tried to install it? Adobe provide their own repository for flash as documented here: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/using-adobe-flash/

However, I haven’t any idea on how it works with Opera: perhaps best to ask on their forums?

Hi @FranciscoD,

I’m using Fedora 29 KDE, and I installed it with dnf, just as in the document. Perhaps it does not recognize it.

It does not show any error message. On the website there is a video, with uses adobe flash, it’s just not playing at all.

When I’d like to import as an extension, Opera is saying error message, that opera needs a manifest version 2. I don’t know, what this means.

I’ll try to search in there forum, but I could not find anything.

Hrm, sorry—I don’t know enough about the Opera eco-system to say more. We’ll have to wait for another Opera user. In the meantime, it’d be worth asking on the Opera forums too—they’re bound to have some Fedora/Linux users there.
