How To Install Chromium And Enable Pepper Flash Plugin On All The Supported Ubuntu Systems And Their Derivatives

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Chromium, Google’s open-source browser will drop the support for the Netscape Plugin API and so, Adobe Flash will not be working anymore. Instead, the users can replace Adobe Flash with Pepper Flash Player, which is already used on Google Chrome.

In this article I will show you how to install Chromium and enable Pepper Flash Player on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Elementary OS 0.3 Isis Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Pinguy OS 14.04, Pinguy OS 12.04 and their derivative systems.

For Ubuntu 14.04, Linux Mint 17, Elementary OS 0.3 and Pinguy OS 14.04, both the Chromium and the Pepper Flash Plugin installer are available via the default repositories, installing both of them is easy. Follow the instructions exactly, in order to successfully install Chromium and enable the Pepper Flash Plugin:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
$ sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
$ sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install

Optional, to remove both chromium-browser and pepperflashplugin-nonfree, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove chromium-browser pepperflashplugin-nonfree

For Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 12.10, Ubuntu 12.04, Linux Mint 16, Linux Mint 14, Linux Mint 13, Elementary OS 0.2 and Pinguy OS 12.04, we have to install chromium-browser from the default repositories, but use a third party ppa for pepperflashplugin-nonfree. Like this:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:skunk/pepper-flash
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer
$ sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install

Optional, to remove both chromium-browser and pepflashplugin-installer, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove chromium-browser pepflashplugin-installer

    Thanks for the help. I used the instructions successfully on Ubuntu and Mint 17. Now I’m looking for help in getting Pepper flash installed in OpenSUSE 13.1 in Chromium. So far I’ve been unsuccessful. Any help/suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks….Jim

    it tells me

    sudo: update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree: command not found
