flash plugin not working in chromium and mozilla, on ubuntu


downloaded flash plugin from terminal by,
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

then made a directory by,
sudo mkdir opt/google/chromium/plugins

then tried to copy to opt/google/chromium/plugins, by
sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so /opt/google/chromium/plugins

but the terminal prompts a message...
cp: cannot create regular file `/opt/google/chromium/plugins': No such file or directory.

want to install it, any ideas why this is happening

The above command probably needs the -p option,

Code:
sudo mkdir -p opt/google/chromium/plugins
Not sure why you are doing all this with chromium as its in the repos with flash,

Code:
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser flashplugin-nonfree

Not the correct package name on Ubuntu.

But it also shouldn't need any other steps.

How To Install Flash Plugin In Chromium For Ubuntu | THEGEEKIN Still What - http://stillwhat.com/install-flash-p...romium-ubuntu/

Or just install Chrome since it comes with flash and will soon be the only way to get Adobe Flash.

It is funny people will use a non-free proprietary plugin like Adobe Flash but will not use Google Chrome.

fixed...... if ur youtube videos are not working even after installing flash player

Then, open up a YouTube video, right-click on the video itself and click on Settings.
Uncheck the "Enable hardware acceleration" checkbox in the Display tab.

this should work, it worked for me

Quite true in a way. You probably double the non-free sin with Chrome though.

To the OP glad you finally got it working!

Google Chrome, adobe Flash, oracle's Java 7, and to top it off using Google's DNS.
$ apt-cache policy google-chrome-stable
google-chrome-stable:
Installed: 19.0.1084.56-r140965
Candidate: 19.0.1084.56-r140965
Version table:
*** 19.0.1084.56-r140965 0
500 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable/main i386 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Reminds self to go check Java, Oracle was supposed to releases fixes today.
$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_04"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_04-b20)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 23.0-b21, mixed mode)

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4


I also use Firefox with the same. I run Debian because it works, not because I am a Stallman/FSF zealot.
