Flash plugin doesn’t work in Chromium (Debian) – SOLVED

Flash plugin in Chromium

Flash plugin in Chromium

I you have a problem with flash plugin in Chromium, here is a little howto. Debian howto helps me only a little, because one important information is missing.

Install required packages

root@desktop [~]# apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree pepperflashplugin-nonfree
root@desktop [~]# dpkg -l '*flash*' | grep plugin
un  flashplugin               <none>  <none>  (no description available)
ii  flashplugin-nonfree       1:3.5   amd64   Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin
un  libflash-mozplugin        <none>  <none>  (no description available)
ii  pepperflashplugin-nonfree 1.5     amd64   Pepper Flash Player - browser plugin

This still doesn’t helps me – flash plugin in Chromium still doesn’t work.
When I look to /usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/etc-chromium-default.txt I have figured out, that this file should be copied to /etc/chromium directory.

Debugging command

So I have tried the following command:

rajo@desktop [~]: /usr/bin/chromium \

Good! It works! Fix was very simple:

root@desktop [~]# cp -p /usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/etc-chromium-default.txt \
root@desktop [~]# ls -la /etc/chromium/
total 20
