Can Anyone Get Flash to Work in Chrome 5.0.375.55?
I've been using Chrome for Linux for a long while now. In the "beta" version 4.x, I could just create a folder called /opt/google/chrome/plugins, copy libflashplayer.so in there, and invoke chrome with the "--enable-plugins" command line switch, and Flash worked. Now, with the new 5.x version, that does not work. Nor does Flash show up in the "about:plugins" page, although all other plugins do.
Some reading on the new release says that it has an "internal" Flash player, which can be enabled with the "--enable-internal-flash" switch, but that doesn't seem to work for me.
Can anyone else get Flash working on the new version with the "internal" Flash player?
I am, of course, using the 64-bit version of everything on Slackware64-current.
EDIT: So . . . after further investigation, it appears that there is no internal flash player in the 64-bit Linux version. This makes sense, because the 64-bit plugin from Adobe is still considered an "alpha." Even still, shouldn't it work the old way?
