Description

I recently had trouble watching Hulu on my Arch machine and after searching around online I found that flash requires the use of the HAL program. This is how I worked around the problem.

Prepare the Environment

  • Make sure the system is up to date:
    sudo pacman -Syu
    
  • Install flashplugin:
    sudo pacman -S flashplugin
    

Install HAL

  • Install HAL from the AUR:
    yaourt hal
    
  • Start and enable the HAL service at boot:
    sudo systemctl enable hal.service
    sudo systemctl start hal.service
    
  • Clear your Flash cache by going to http://phtshp.us/2fZi and selecting Delete all sites under the Website Storage Settings panel
