Ugh, Flash (Solved)
« on: August 11, 2015, 05:34:43 pm »
I'm testing something out for somebody, and what I'm testing involves using Flash.   >:(  Anyway, I'm getting this message in Chromium:



I have Flash 11.2.202 installed from the repositories.  Here's the proof of that:

Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep flash
ii  flashplugin-installer                       11.2.202.508ubuntu0.14.04.1             amd64        Adobe Flash Player plugin installer

Anybody got any ideas why this is happening, other than the Flash plugin being a piece of garbage?  It works fine in Firefox, but Firefox is stupidly slow on my laptop, which is what I'm using right now.

Uh, never mind.  Disregard this.  These aren't the droids you're looking for.

I spontaneously remembered that Chromium requires that stupid pepperflash plugin, not the regular one.  So, it's working now.

For anyone else that needs to update Pepperflash (the flashplayer for Chromium)

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install
then restart Chromium
