pepper flash

since installing LM17 cinnamon, it shows pepper flash is installed, but when using chromium sites that require flash tell me to install flash,
I uninstalled and re-installed (with synaptic) but the message still comes up, and I cannot watch any videos.

sorry to be a pain ,but any help will be appreciated.



sudo updatedb

then post the output from:

does flash work in Chromium if you run it from the command line with this command:

chromium-browser --ppapi-flash-path=/usr/lib/pepperflashplugin-nonfree/ --ppapi-flash-version=

no luck with that Mark
you tube, bbc, and birdforum all ask for plug in to be installed

did it specifically mention the “Flash” plugin was the one that’s missing ?

if so …

Easiest solution would be to ditch Chromium and install Chrome.

But if you MUST have Chromium, let me know and we’ll try downloading pepperflash from my dropbox

HA HA I hope I don’t sound totally stupid :wink:
but I cannot find chrome in either synaptic or the software centre.
so how do i install,
I’ll be perfectly happy with chrome BTW.

be sure to download the .deb version for either 32bit or 64bit … depending on which version of Mint you’re using.

Once downloaded, double-click the .deb file to install.

downloaded and working perfect.
so I’m very very happy now thanks :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

many thanks for your time.


no problem :slight_smile:

Out of interest, what is it in Chrome that isn’t in Chromium, that makes the websites happy?

I’m gonna take a guess here that the pepperflashplugin-nonfree installation is corrupt

Chrome will be using its own version, not the system wide one.

Pure GUESS though.
