Ubuntu – Where is the Flash in Chrome


I installed Google Chrome. This is the first thing I did after installing Ubuntu. I went into firefox, and went to chrome.google.com, and hit the button. I don't like package managers, and avoid the command line like the pox.

Then, I started using Google Chrome. I went to Kongregate, and clicked on a game. It told me I didn't have flash. A few different websites told me the same. I assumed that they must have been wrong. I hit the link to Adobe, to install Flash, and it reassured me; of course, Google Chrome includes Flash. I checked my version – Chrome 5.0.375.126. Of course, I just downloaded it.

I scoured the internet for solutions. None worked. Many seemed to involve re-enabling Flash, or something like that. But insofar as I can tell, there is no Flash anywhere in my Chrome. I feel like I bought a Reese's cup, and found solid chocolate. I checked in the Chrome plugin manager, and everything. A few solutions told me to copy some garbage into my command line and hit enter (as almost all solutions to problems on linux entail). I did it, reluctantly, and it did nothing.

I thought Flash was supposed to come with Chrome. But it didn't. Sooooo… What gives?

Google Chrome version:
Google Chrome 5.0.375.126 (Official Build 53802)
WebKit 533.4
User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US) AppleWebKit/533.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/5.0.375.126 Safari/533.4
Command Line /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome

Operating System: Ubuntu 10.4 64 bit.

Best Answer

Chrome now includes Flash built in by default, there is no need to do anything else.
