I beg to differ:

OK. I already had Adobe Flash installer installed. But under Pepper Flash under optional downloads I downloaded Adobe Flash in the software center.

After that it seemed to work?

Why? The package manager is, surely, the reason to pick a distribution? Without going into source-based distributiond the best advice is to install from the package manager -- it allows consistency and means that any support is relevant.

@CANADIANLINUX

go here and download the deb 32 or 64 bit

inurl:/deb/pool/main/g/google-chrome-stable/

unpack it into your downloads directory, I use ark or file roller .. then Uncompress the data.tar.xz file then go into this directory,

opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/


you will find libpepflashplayer.so . get out your terminal then
Code:
 sudo mkdir -pv /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/
then move your libpepflashplayer.so into that directory. this is one of the default search paths for pepper flash in Firefox .. then you should be back on track..

True. However, installing flash this way found to be less finicky, in my experience at least. Moreso, quite a few sites refuse to work with an outdated flash. And distro-provided flash can at times get behind.

Well thanks for all your help guys. I'm glad its finally working. Too bad Google Chrome with integrated flash is no long updated for 32 bit linux.
