I've just upgraded 12.04 to 14.04. Java and flash plug-ins are lost from Chromium. I have Openjdk7 installed with Icedtea and adobe flash plug-in for Firefox.

sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins

The above command didn't help!

  • Can anyone help me out in setting the plugins.

The Chromium maintainer announced that Chromium is going to experience 'growing pains'. Several things will be breaking.

Regarding flash, you will need to install the pepper flash plugin instead

sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree 
sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install

    Java (IcedTea) doesn't have a PPAPI plugin available, and so it's not usable in Chromium. – saiarcot895 Apr 19 '14 at 21:15

Give the Pepper Flash Player for Chromium a try:

sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
