I just updated to Ubuntu 16.04 and now my adobe flash plugin for my Chromium browser doesn't work. Any advice? I've tried downloading Pepper Flash, but that doesn't work.


my guess: copy and see your plugins using chrome://plugins (not sure if it's chromium instead of chrome) if you find two adobe flash plugins disable one of them. If you didn't find any download the package from adobe (.deb for ubuntu) and then install it.


Pepperflash does not work in 32 bit machines anymore since Chrome stopped supporting 32 bit linux.

If you do have a 32 bit Ubuntu installation, then I recommend you download adobe-flashplugin.

First remove pepperflash

sudo apt-get purge --remove pepperflashplugin-nonfree

sudo apt-get autoremove

Install adobe-flashplugin

sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

Once is installed go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

and check that flash 11 is installed.
