I'm totally confused about the installation in my Manjaro. I remember that months ago I was just happy to see Flash-videos in my Vivaldi.

So here is what I have (I removed some obvious false positives):

[root@runlikehell ~]# find / -iname "*pepper*"
/home/sjngm/.config/vivaldi/Default/Pepper Data

[root@runlikehell ~]# find / -iname "*flash*"
/home/sjngm/.config/vivaldi/Default/Pepper Data/Shockwave Flash
/home/sjngm/.config/vivaldi/Default/Pepper Data/Shockwave Flash/WritableRoot/#SharedObjects/CDJUJ6XP/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer
/home/sjngm/.config/vivaldi/Default/Pepper Data/Shockwave Flash/WritableRoot/#SharedObjects/CDJUJ6XP/de.chaturbate.com/static/javascript-flash-cookies
/home/sjngm/.config/vivaldi/Default/Pepper Data/Shockwave Flash/WritableRoot/#SharedObjects/CDJUJ6XP/ss.phncdn.com/html5player/videoPlayer/oldFlash
[root@runlikehell ~]# 

If I go to http://get.adobe.com/en/flashplayer/about/ it tells me that I have version 22,0,0,209 (sic) installed. However, I can see that Octopi shows a pepper-flash (the icon shows that I haven't installed it yet) in YAOURT and a flashplugin (installed).

From what I remember Vivaldi needs the Pepper Flash to work, but I can't remember how I made it work back then. Shame on me... Also I don't know where Vivaldi tries to find the plug-in.

Do I still have a correct installation (just because I can see videos is no proof to me)? Should I install YAOURT's pepper-flash? Do I need to do further steps after installing this? Should I remove anything from my current installation?

I'd really appreciate if somebody can line out the steps I need to take to move to an automated update of that plug-in via Octopi/pacman as version 22.x is just plain old and I obviously have troubles to keep up...


Ok, I was way too curious to wait any longer ;)

I fooled around with /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so and noticed that it really was the library Vivaldi uses. I decided to install pepper-flash and the library is now in /usr/lib/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so. I removed the original location and everything is running fine so far, the Adobe site tells me that I'm using an up-to-date version...
