Google Chrome complaining about Flash plugin being too old...


It's been quite some time that my google chrome was complaining about flash plugin beeing too old while I can see it updated regularly.

I've been able to get rid of this message by deleting the old version on my system :

thomas@daisybox:/opt/google/chrome$ locate libflashplayer.so
/home/thomas/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
/home/thomas/.mozilla_backup_2009-08-13T21:48:02+0200/plugins/libflashplayer.so
/usr/share/ubufox/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
/var/lib/flashplugin-installer/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so

thomas@daisybox:/opt/google/chrome$ rm -rf /home/thomas/.mozilla_backup_2009-08-13T21:48:02+0200/plugins/libflashplayer.so 


thomas@daisybox:/opt/google/chrome$ ll /home/thomas/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 58 2011-05-17 01:21 /usr/share/ubufox/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so -> /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
thomas@daisybox:/opt/google/chrome$ 
thomas@daisybox:/opt/google/chrome$ rm /home/thomas/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

Restarts browsers and no more annoying message about flash.
