I am running Ubuntu 13.10 and would like to use Adobe flash in Chromium (or Chrome). How can I do this? If not possible, what linux software is available that will work with flash files?
You won't need to install Adobe Flash if you install Google Chrome, it has an integrated flashplugin:
The Google Chrome browser (32 bit) includes Adobe Flash Player built-in. Accordingly, it's not necessary for Chrome to download Flash Player separately.
The next working fine for me in UbuntuStudio 16.04 64 bits (the above not working)
I copy and paste from:
"As of 2015-05, the old "pepperflashplugin-nonfree" is deprecated in favor of an official, maintained, one-step package called adobe-flashplugin, which works for Firefox and Chromium and derivatives, but not for Yandex.Browser 46.0.2490.3623 beta (64-bit version) on November 2015. No terminals, no multiverse.
Add the Canonical Partners software source, and install adobe-flashplugin. See Chromium/Getting-Partner-Flash. Chromium/Getting-Flash
