How to fix Adobe Flash Player in Google Chrome in Ubuntu 64 bits

Hi folks. Today I will explain about how to watch a video made in Adobe Flash in Google Chrome using Ubuntu 64 bits.

You installed flashplugin-installer but when you tried to watch some video received the message Missing Plugin or something like that.

So, to solve that, download the library from Adobe Labs site.

Open a shell, go to the folder where you downloaded the file flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz and uncompress it:

tar xvf flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz

Still in the shell, run:

sudo mkdir /opt/google/chrome/plugins
sudo cp libflashplayer.so /opt/google/chrome/plugins/

Close the Google Chrome and reopen it again. Go to the youtube site and make a test.

That’s it folks. See you next time.

    Thanks, now it works.

    Note for chromium users: change the last command with
    sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/plugins/
