I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 and I have tried multiple explanations on here but none of them seem to work. I tried out one and figured out it was for Opera and not Chromium and the one on Chromium was outdated and pepperflash couldn't be found because of a 404 error.
I installed adobe and restarted, then I checked my plugins and only the PDF file viewer is there, no flash plugin.
Thanks in advance for the help and this is for Chromium Web Browser.
