A way to install PepperFlash in Ubuntu



  • It seems like everyone wants to make it hard. This won't be a step by step tutorial, but a conceptual tutorial. First you have to find it: So this gets close using Google: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=install+flash+chromium+ppapi+adobe.com Withing Adobe's website, you need to eventually find the donload link to "other versions" https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ In my case, I want 64 bit, the tar.gz version b[/b] So, open it with Archive manager and extract the files [b]libpepflashplayer.so manifest.json[/b] to an easy to get to directory that you created, e.g. ~/junk Now execute [b]sudo mkdir -p /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash [/b] (this can be done at anytime) [b]cd[/b] to the easily accessible directory eg [b]cd ~/junk[/b] You can make sure the files are there by doing an [b]ls[/b] Move the files. [b]sudo mv * /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash[/b] (you can copy/paste from the terminal the /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash) Back up a directory [b]cd ..[/b] ls Remove the empty directory [b]rmdir junk[/b] PepperFlash should exist under the menu option vivaldi/tools/plugins The big things you have to remember are: sudo mkdir -p /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash and PPAPI for the Chromium browsers



  • Ooor you just can install it with

    sudo apt install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
    ```what looks like a much easier way(however this package downloads the whole google chrome for unpacking pepper flash)


  • "however this package downloads the whole google chrome"

    Yes but it does not actually install Chrome, which is good.
