I need to use YouTube. I have Flash enabled in Chromium's settings, but it always says "could not load shockwave". I am running Lubuntu 13.04
Thanks to Erich E. Hoover and his team you can use Pipelight to run Flash, Shockwave, Silverlight and Unity Player in your native Ubuntu browsers.
The steps, reproduced here:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --install-recommends pipelight-multi sudo pipelight-plugin --update sudo pipelight-plugin --enable flash
Have you installed
lubuntu-restricted-extras. If you haven't, please do so along with the "recommends". In other words, run:
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras
but don't run
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lubuntu-restricted-extras
unless you really know what you're doing.
Installing this package will pull in support for Microsoft fonts, Flash plugin, DVD playback, LAME (to create compressed audio files) and patent codecs for Chromium.
Chromium doesn't have Flash with the browser. Chrome does.
