How to use Pepper Flash in Chromium

Pepper Flash in Chromium

Recently the developers of Chromium announced that the browser will stop supporting plug-ins that make use of NPAPI, including Flash, so it is best to prepare and install the version of the Adobe plug-in that uses PPAPI: Pepper-Flash.

Although Pepper Flash does not have a separate installer, it can be easily installed thanks to the repository maintained by Daniel Richard.

For, install and use Pepper Flash on Chromium simply add the following repository to our software sources —the repository is valid for both Ubuntu 13.10 as if to Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.10 y Ubuntu 12.04

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

Once added, we refresh the local information and carry out the installation:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer

When the installation is finished, we enter in the console:

sudo nano /etc/chromium-browser/default

In the document that opens, within the terminal window itself, we paste the following line at the end:

Pepper Flash in Chromium

. /usr/lib/pepflashplugin-installer/

We save the changes with Ctrl + A and we went out with Ctrl + X.

That's all you have to do. To verify that we are using Pepper Flash we can open the Chromium plug-ins tab (chrome: // plugins) and verify that the Flash version is equal to or greater than 11.9.

    The rock is not to BREAK your head with so many updates and bullshit from the multinationals, I go directly to Chrome, period. What a way to PLAY WHAT DOESN'T SOUND.

    It throws an error when I get to step 2. When I give enter by putting this "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer", it throws me this error: bash: syntactic error near the unexpected element `; & '

    Thanks for the help.
