I installed Chrome:
Download the version for your system and install. Flash worked right out of the box. Much simpler than mucking around with plugins.
I realize this question is and has been asked a number of times around the web, but the proposed solutions are not working for me.
Here is what I have tried:
adobe flash plugin from the software center
Downloading the software directly from the adobe website and installing
- First I downloaded the tar.gz file, I extracted it, and I installed according to the readme
- Second I downloaded the APT file, and I used the software center to install it.
Pepper Flash Plugin: pepperflashplugin-nonfree
For all these options I was able to get them to run and install, ( Sometimes I had to install various dependencies. ) .
Regardless of method chromium fails to load flash content. Can anyone provide some insight?
And a Follow Up: Why is this such an issue?
It seems there are quite a number of people with this issue, yet there does not appear to be a consensus on how to solve it; there are almost as many proposed solutions as there are people asking about it. Can a consensus be reached and a best practice be established?
