@Mitch see my previous comment to dobey.

@dobey: Not sure it's a dupe - they're asking how to find out if it's fixed, not whether it's timely updated.

comment How to install standalone Adobe Flash Player on Trusty
@Nattgew actually I think the problem is that the flash file is a wrapper, and is simply a player for an actual video content stored elsewhere. (There are many SWFs like this)

comment How to install standalone Adobe Flash Player on Trusty
@JohnRose that seems like it might be a different kind of SWF, just a wrapper for a video playing. I've seen such wrappers before, they dont' work standalone. Unless opened in a web browser, this will fail each and every time. The Standalone version for Linux (old by this day and age) would provide a similar result.

emphasis put on the true answer since OP seems incapable of finding it.

@mika have you actually read my answer saying that there is not?

comment Standalone Flash Pepper on 14.04?
@mika there is no solution if you want the latest Flash - Air was discontinued for Linux and so was Flash, either use Pepper Flash in the browser or the standalone one, but the issue still remains of security settings - you're kind of out of luck right now

comment Standalone Flash Pepper on 14.04?
@mika According to what I found, it can run them, but it can't access the local filesystem. Therefore, if you want AIR to run all your Flash applications and it in turn has other SWF dependencies on the local disk, I believe you might run into problems.

What exactly is "Luna"? Eclipse, or an OS variant?

comment Standalone Flash Pepper on 14.04?
@mika "Adobe Flash Player is a browser plug-in that provides advantages for users and content creators in the browser, including the ability to deliver RIAs in the browser. AIR incorporates technologies originally developed in Flash Player and enables RIAs on the desktop. AIR and Flash Player provide complementary deployment methods for RIAs." (adobe.com/products/air/faq.html). I don't think AIR can play SWF out of the box though. Note that AIR for Linux is also unsupported now (same FAQ document)

comment Migrating from Windows 2000 (Server) to Ubuntu 14.10 (Server)
Totally honest half-stupid question: Why wouldn't you just migrate from Win2k to Win Server 2k8 or 2k12 to keep everything on the same level of compatibility without having to learn how to maintain a system you're unfamiliar with. Upgrading is not that hard, I don't believe.

comment What are the IP addresses and port numbers for Ubuntu update sites?
@psusi unless they're paranoid about their locked-down sections of the network and want to restrict outbound communications (in which case they should be using squid or a transparent proxy to control that kind of thing)

comment How to easily install any GPG GUI on Ubuntu that actually works?
There is Kleopatra, but I've not tested it on Ubuntu. There's also gpg4usb which I've used to encrypt/decrypt messages, but I store my private keys on an encrypted USB drive inside gpg4usb for those purposes.
