Ubuntu – How to make Chromium use Flash from Google Chrome


Now, that Adobe has stopped issuing new releases for Linux desktops, the only option for users is to use Google Chrome, for those who want to use the latest Flash updates.
I use Chromium. Is there any way to get Chromium use the Flash from Google Chrome?
The reason I as this question is that I have noticed both these browsers run in the background, so technically, the browsers' plugins are available to use.

pepperflashplugin-nonfree is deprecated on 05/2015. They do not work for Chrome 53 and higher. You can see Getting-Flash. Ubuntu Wiki also "recommended" you to install adobe-flashplugin. Then we install adobe-flashplugin.

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) partner"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

Then you should restart your browser and open chrome://plugins/. If you don't see Adobe Flash Player there, you can run the following commands.

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
sudo apt-get upgrade

It will upgrade adobe-flashplugin for chromium or if you use chrome, do it the same way.
