Gnash and Epiphany

with 5 comments

Long story short, the proprietary Adobe Flash was blacklisted in the GNOME 3.x releases of Epiphany because it uses Gtk+ 2.x (or 1.x) while Epiphany uses Gtk+ 3.x. An unwanted side effect of this is that it also disables Gnash, depriving me of my daily dosage of Youtube, Rebecca Black and crappy, obscure Bollywood songs.

So I fixed it. It is probably not the most correct way to do it, but then it can be a bit tricky to define what is correct in cases like this. In any case, GNOME Bugzilla #647516 has the patch and some details. (Thanks to Company for all the nitty gritty details about this.)

  1. Uhhh, shouldn’t *ALL* plugins be out-of-process? WTF Epiphany.

  2. Wait, you’ve made it so you can *play* Rebecca Black videos again?

    Can you re-break that?

  4. Excuse me for asking, but how I apply this patch? Which file do I apply it to correct the epiphany?
