Chrome vs ChromiumTo verify if flash is installed, check following link.
Chrome has built-in flash. Chromium users need to install package pepperflashplugin.
Chromium browser does not contain any flash plugin. Adobe does not support this browser.
But don't worry - there's one trick. We can take flash plugin from Chrome and install it in Chromium.
There's one package called pepperflash which does it for you.
It will download Chrome, extract flash plugin and will install it into Chromium.
Step 1: Install pepperflash package
sudo dpkg -i pepperflashplugin-nonfree_1.8.1_amd64.deb
or just open it with GDebi installer
Step 2: Update pepperflash
Optionally you can update plugin...
sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install
Step 3: Check installation status
sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --status
Flash Player version installed on this system : 188.8.131.527
Flash Player version available on upstream site: 184.108.40.2067
To verify installation restart browser (mandatory), and type again chrome://flash/
You should see a line with version and binary location:
|Flash plugin||220.127.116.11 /usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/libpepflashplayer.so|
If chrome://flash/ says that flash is not installed, don't panic. It's quite possible that your chromium process didn't stop. Even if you don't see window, sometimes chrome process is still there.
Just reboot your machine or logout and login again (on my machine this worked perfectly).
Other browsersAdobe has stopped to support linux at version 11.2 (current version is >= 15).
However non-chrome/chromium browser users are still able to download this version from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer
