Flash was working fine in Chromium. Then I got a notification there was an update for Chromium. After upgrading Flash stops working in Chromium. It seems for some reason it was disabled:



Chromium 30.0.1599.114 (Developer Build 30.0.1599.114-0ubuntu0.13.04.2)

Ubuntu 13.04 OS Linux

Blink 537.36 (@159105)

JavaScript V8

Flash (Disabled)

Flash still works in Firefox so this is a problem of Chromium. How do I fix this?

Try this. Open terminal, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

chromium-browser --enable-plugins

If that works, then go to Applications -->Internet -->Chromium Browser and right click it, add to panel.Right click the new chromium icon and add the following command where it says command

chromium-browser --enable-plugins

Unfortunately that didn't work. "chromium-browser --enable-plugins" opened a new chromium window that still has Flash shown as "Disabled". – Continuation Dec 11 '13 at 13:29
