As Epiphany depends on gtk3, where Adobe's Flash Player uses gtk2, an external utility like nspluginwrapper has to be used. For x86_64, there is an official package available in the multilib repository. For i686, you have to build it manually:
 
* Obtain the necessary files, for example via [[ABS]], or the [http://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/tree/nspluginwrapper/trunk/ web interface].
 
* Modify the PKGBUILD to make it compatible with i686:
 
 
{{File|name=PKGBUILD|content=...
 
 
arch=('i686')
 
...
 
depends=('curl' 'libxt' 'gcc-libs' 'gtk2' 'gtk2')
 
makedepends=('gcc')
 
...
 
./configure
 
...}}
 
 
* Build the package:
 
 
$ makepkg
 
 
* Install it:
 
 
# pacman -U nspluginwrapper-{$pkgver}-{$pkgrel}-i686.pkg.tar.xz
 
  
For both architectures, issue the following command to wrap all browser plugins:

Epiphany is a simple web browser primarily intended for the GNOME desktop which works acceptably with other desktop environments as well.

Installation

To install Epiphany from the repositories, run:

# pacman -S epiphany

If you want to save login passwords, install gnome-keyring:

# pacman -S gnome-keyring

If you are using another desktop environment (DE) other than GNOME, you will probably have to create directory ~/.gnome2/epiphany. To do so, type:

$ mkdir -p ~/.gnome2/epiphany

Flash

Install package flashplugin from official repositories. Than Epiphany should now be able to echo flash content.

Manage Web Apps

Since version 3.0, Epiphany can add "web app" launchers to GNOME Shell. You can manage and remove them by typing "about:applications" into the Epiphany address bar.
