[Bug 1833592] Re: Flash on Firefox or Chromium as snap not explained


Hello Gunnar, or anyone else affected,

Accepted ubuntu-docs into disco-proposed. The package will build now and
be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-docs/19.04.3
in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how
to enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this
update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from
verification-needed-disco to verification-done-disco. If it does not fix
the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag
to verification-failed-disco. In either case, without details of your
testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification .  Thank you in
advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s)
fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in

  Flash on Firefox or Chromium as snap not explained

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in ubuntu-docs source package in Disco:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:

  net-install-flash.page explains how you can conveniently make Flash
  work with conventionally installed web browsers. Nothing is said about
  Firefox or Chromium as snap.

  Considering the plan to drop the .deb packages for Chromium, and only
  make that browser available via a snap, it has become more important
  that the docs explain how you make Flash work in that environment.
  With this SRU we add such a section to the disco docs, i.e. the latest
  stable release.

  The translators were notified about this change:


  So the new strings have been translated into some languages. But while
  translations into some languages are missing, making the information
  available in at least English carries greater weight.

  [Test Case]

   * Install ubuntu-docs 19.04.3 from disco-proposed.

   * Open Help and navigate to "Networking, web & email" -> "Web
     browsers" -> "Install the Flash plug-in".

   * Find the section "Web browser provided as a snap package" at the
     bottom of the page.

  [Regression Potential]
