I am aware flash is EOL. However, I need it for http://sciencenetlinks.com/media/filer/2017/12/21/evolution.html. according to https://www.whatismybrowser.com/detect/is-flash-installed however trying to use flash results in "Right Click to enable Adobe Flash". when I do that it does nothing.

Edit: I have chromium Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu 19.04 (64-bit) and https://www.whatismybrowser.com/detect/is-flash-installed says Yes Flash 32.0.0 is installed in this browser

Edit 2: about:components does not have flash recognized.

in chrome it looks like https://i.sstatic.net/zAjI8.jpg something about the sandbox broke it. --no-sandbox "fixed it"

    Are you sure it's not "Click to enable Adobe Flash"? I have checked that link in both Chromium Version 73.0.3683.86 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu 18.04 (64-bit) and Chrome Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit) and once I enable it by clicking and allowing it it works fine.

  • Its a deb package. I used sudo apt install chromium-browser and sudo apt install adobe-flashplugin

  • This is a Chromium bug, and it's about to be fixed very soon. (Already fixed in eoan.) Commented May 7, 2019 at 12:37

I did use https://packages.ubuntu.com/ and looking in your version bio, disco etc in the Web group for pepperflash player, install it, restart your Chromium and for me flashplayer worked.
