Adobe flash player install ubuntu and kali linux

Recently I fresh install Ubuntu 13.04. Then I install chromium browser, after that I'm facing youtube video streaming. Chromium doesn't have inbuilt flash player like in Chrome. I tried to install adobe flash player searching from internet but no avail.

But I found this command which worked. Make sure you install chromium browser. After that use following command to install flash

(I already download tar.gz file from adobe site and extracted, you can use below command to get flash)

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

Then you need to copy file into /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins directory
(I already extracted and copy from extracted folder to following folder, you can use below command)

sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ /usr/lib/chromium-brower/plugins

For kali linux

cp/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ /usr/lib/mozilla/lougins

To run the browser just run the following command from terminal

chromium-browser -- enable-plugins



  1. Hey I tried but here is my problem..

    amar@Amar:~$ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
    [sudo] password for amar:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Note, selecting 'flashplugin-installer' instead of 'flashplugin-nonfree'
    flashplugin-installer is already the newest version.

    amar@Amar:~$ sudo cdp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ /usr/lib/chromium-brower/plugins
    sudo: cdp: command not found

  3. it should be cp, to copy the files,
    you can do another method,
    download flash form this site

    extract it

    tar -xvf [filename.tar.gz]

    then go that folder
    use the following command

    sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ /usr/lib/chromium-brower/plugins

    use following command to run the browser

    chromium-browser -- enable-plugins
