    same symptoms as tom. i have also removed/installed chromium/chrome/firefox, all with varying degrees of fail.

    seems like the version on adobe site is the one to have, but how do you get it in place?

    Didn't work. Said it is already installed and for the second command file exists. But Youtube says missing plug in.

    wow thanks!!! the original post totally worked for me!

    supposedly Chromium is supposed to auto update the flash player every time it updates, but mine would never update and say i had an out of date version and had to click the banner at the top to use it.

    this has been annoying me for a few days now, thanks for the insight

  8. Or you could just nab the version that comes with Google-chrome dev version - libgcflashplayer.so - and copy it to /usr/lib/chromium-browser

    You can also grab the inbuilt pdf reader code as well, libpdf.so

    Make sure you enable the pdf reader in about:plugins, it works really well and is worth the effort.

      Have you had good luck with Chrome's flash player? I had problems with it locking up on my system. Anyway, thanks for the comment. It's always nice to have other options.
