Thank you very much! But I want to say that the ubuntu I have installed is 64bits system.So why the plugin file is not in lib64,it’s in lib?I install the .deb file before.And it was not OK.When I checked the files,I found that there’re plugin files in my lib64 file folder.I’m really don’t know why!
did everything but still not working videos are black
Right clicking on the Chromium icon doesn’t do anything. 🙁
Thanks, chome picked it up without having to copy the .so file I just had to run the install command sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree as instructed and it worked.
Thanks a lot! that work for me perfectly in a lubuntu 12.04.
Thank you very much!
An easier variant of this works on Ubuntu Oneiric Ocelot. I am always forgetting how to do this when I reinstall an Ubuntu flavor on any of my several computers, but I know it’s about flashplugin.
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer just works. It downloads flashplugin itself and then seems to copy the .so to the correct directory. At any rate, that one-liner is ALL it takes. You just reopen chrome normally (the enable-plugins line is not needed anymore either) and it works.
Worked! Thank you!
Thanks you! This worked
why not create a symbolic link instead of coping the file. that way when it gets updated chromium gets updated too!
ln -s /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/libflashplayer.so
When trying to get iso file to chrominium plugins I get massage, permission denied:( what to do?
Does not work
I did everything.
I’m using Mint 17 with the ‘adobe-flashplugin’ package.
The flashplugin.so is a symbolic link at /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins;
I also started the chromium as you said ‘chromium-browser –enable-plugins’ and replaced into the menu.
But nothing happens. Even the chromium plugin list does not shows the plugin.
Works for me.
Very thank you!
Although when i go to /tools/complements/ options of chromium the plugin adoble flash player don’t appear but is working.
