Since updating to Ubuntu 13.10, Shockwave Flash does not work in Chromium or Firefox. Both show a "Shockwave Flash has crashed" dialog.
After loading a page with a Flash video, I get this warning on the console twice:
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Operation not permitted).
When I try to play the video, it crashes and I receive these disorted error messages:
(exe:14868): Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision, trouble ahead [xcb] Extra reply data still left in queue [xcb] This is most likely caused by a broken X extension library [xcb] Aborting, sorry about that. owser --type=plugin --plugin-path=/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so --lang=de --channel=14560.18.20766867: ../../src/xcb_io.c:576: _XReply: Assertion `!xcb_xlib_extra_reply_data_left' failed.
With Firefox, I get these errors:
###!!! ABORT: Request 154.24: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation); 3 requests ago: file /build/buildd/firefox-25.0+build3/toolkit/xre/nsX11ErrorHandler.cpp, line 157 WARNING: pipe error (110): Connection reset by peer: file /build/buildd/firefox-25.0+build3/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 437 ###!!! [Parent][RPCChannel] Error: Channel error: cannot send/recv
What I tried so far
- Reinstalling flashplugin-installer
- Changing permissions of /dev/nvidia0
- Tried Google Chrome 30.0.1599.114, which works perfectly with its own Flash plugin.
It seems that Flash Aid is no longer available. GPU acceleration is working fine, e.g. for Portal.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
