There was an update for chromium pepper flash last night. The install seemed to go normally but now I cannot play any flash based games that I normally play. Is there a simple fix for this?
Pepper Flash Update
I have issues with flash not working anymore as well after the update.
To both of you ;)
Check that you have chromium-pepper-flash removed, and you’re using pepper-flash (the package got renamed).
Are you using a 32bit or 64bit system?
This plugin is for chromium and other PPAPI plugin capable browsers. Which browser are you using?
No chromium-pepper-flash here anymore. 64 bit OS, Used browsers: PaleMoon, Chromium, Qupzilla.
See for yourselves:
- Open chromium in a terminal
- Go to adobe flash test page
- Report what you see in the terminal
EDIT: Oh, remember that now the package is called pepper-flash (it got renamed).
As you can see, you have it installed.
This is totally normal:

Don’t you see an animation? (it goes off quickly).
Can you test this pair of sites?
http://www.snailsanimation.com/benchmark08_play.php (<- I don’t know if this site is trustworthy, be careful).
I don’t see an animation on the adobe site, just the version of my installed flash player ( 188.8.131.52)
The first link you posted shows a black box in a green frame, the second one shows me that I have flash version 11.2.202 ( instead of 184.108.40.206 on the adobe site) .
No animation for me either. My only work around this far has been to install chrome. Uninstalling flash then reinstalling in chromium did nothing.
As it works for me and others, I’d guess it’s not a packaging problem but a problem with the plugin itself.
You could try an older version of the plugin or maybe try another browser (not PPAPI but NPAPI, like firefox). Or yes, use chrome.
Sorry that I don’t have a better solution.
This last pepper flash update solved the problem.
