I'm trying to install Flash for Opera latest version on Ubuntu 16.10 but everything I have found and tried failed. It works fine however on Firefox and Chrome. Has anybody been able to successfully make it work? Thanks a lot.

  • Enable the Canonical Partner repository.
  • Install the adobe-flashplugin package.
  • Create a symlink using this command:

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libpepflashplayer.so /usr/lib/opera/plugins/libpepflashplayer.so
  • Restart Opera.


The symlink is possibly not needed with the latest Opera version.
