Ubuntu: How do I install pepper-flash on Chromium?


I have Chromium web browser on my Lubuntu 13.04 (pre-installed). I use LX Terminal (pre-installed) to write commands. I am trying to download flash player on Chromium using instructions on this site:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:skunk/pepper-flash  

After typing in my password, this worked. Now

sudo apt-get update  

I didn't need to type in my password, as I continued on the same terminal, but got W:/ and E:/ fetch file errors

sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer  

I continued on the same terminal despite the fetch file errors... and they said pepflashplugin-installer could not be found.

Is the last error because of fetch file errors, or because I need to download pepflash-plugin-installer somewhere? Or is it because of something else?

I cannot download the Chrome browser, and not looking to use flash player on my Firefox web browser (installed using lubuntu software center).


Pepper Flash is now in Ubuntu repositories (14.04). Install it like:

sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree  sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install  


If you installed Chrome Browser you don't need to install pepper-flash. You can use command line option redirecting pepper plugin path like

 chromium-browser --ppapi-flash-path=/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so --ppapi-flash-version=`grep -i version /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/manifest.json | awk '{print $2}' | awk -F"\"" '{print $2}'`  

should work.

You can make a launcher script like


  #!/bin/bash    chromium-browser --ppapi-flash-path=/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so --ppapi-flash-version=`grep -i version /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/manifest.json | awk '{print $2}' | awk -F"\"" '{print $2}'`  

set execution bit

chmod +x chromium.sh  


Now Pepper Flash plugin with the regular Flash has been moved to Ubuntu Partner repository.

Both Flash players can be installed by

sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin  

after the Canonical Partner repository is enabled in Software & Updates.


Install the PPA from here: https://launchpad.net/~skunk/+archive/pepper-flash and use Chromium. A quick summary of the steps are:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:skunk/pepper-flash  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer  

.. it then installs..

echo ". /usr/lib/pepflashplugin-installer/pepflashplayer.sh" | sudo tee -a /etc/chromium-browser/default  

When you restart chromium, you should be using the new flash plugin!
