Installing pepperflash - flashplayer 24 - for Chromium 32bit
« on: January 03, 2017, 07:50:57 am »
[EDIT]

NO LONGER NECESSARY .. instead install adobe-flashplugin which contains both pepperflash and flashplayer .. see here:
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,4802.msg53995.html#msg53995
for instructions

[END EDIT]


The following instructions are for 32bit Peppermint ONLY .. this pepperflash version will NOT work in 64bit Chromium.

If you're running 64bit Peppermint, use the instructions at the following link instead:-
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,4893.0.html



Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge pepperflashplugin-nonfreethen
Code: [Select]
sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/adobe-pepflashpluginthen
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/lib/adobe-pepflashpluginthen
Code: [Select]
sudo wget --no-check-certificate https://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/linux32/flash_player_ppapi_linux.i386.tar.gzthen
Code: [Select]
sudo tar xvf flash_player_ppapi_linux.i386.tar.gzthen
Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /etc/chromium-browser/customizations/01-adobe-pepflashpluginand when a BLANK file opens, make it read:-
Code: [Select]
flashso="/usr/lib/adobe-pepflashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so"
flashjson="/usr/lib/adobe-pepflashplugin/manifest.json"
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --ppapi-flash-path=$flashso --ppapi-flash-version=$(grep version $flashjson | sed 's|.*"version": ||;s|"||g;s|,||')"
SAVE that file, and exit pluma.

Now close ALL running instances of Chromium .. reopen Chromium, and go to:-
chrome://plugins
it should show you're running:-
