Use Pepperflash In Chromium

Go to the Google Chrome Webpage and download the web browser for your processor architecture.
Unpack the deb package:


Navigate to /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/ and extract libpepflashplayer.so :


Then :
cd Downloads
sudo mv libpepflashplayer.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins

Edit the file /etc/chromium-browser/default :
sudo nano /etc/chromium-browser/default and make the following change :

# Options to pass to chromium-browser
CHROMIUM_FLAGS=" --ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/libpepflashplayer.so"


Restart chromium....

Check the setting at chrome://plugins in the address bar ( press +Details ) :
