    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!

    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.

    On ocelot,
    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.

    why not create a symbolic link instead of coping the file. that way when it gets updated chromium gets updated too!


  14. deefactorial says:

    ln -s /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/
