Ubuntu – Flash Player not present in Chrome


So I recently upgraded to 12.04 (even though I hate Unity), and after the installation froze and my computer would no longer boot, after booting from a USB stick and installing 12.04 fresh, I downloaded Chrome. However, Flash Player (which is supposed to be built in) is not present.

Whenever I try to watch a video, I get a notification to install flash player, and the most help that Adobe's website gives is this technote
However, when I go to , there is no result for Flash except for this entry under the table for MIME types for the vlc plugin:
video/flv Flash video .flv

I'd be grateful for any ideas.

Google Chrome for 64 bit does not come with Flash (see bug report). Chrome (64 bit) will try and use the Flash it finds on your system, but if you don't have it, then you need to install it.
