Starting from Debian Stretch, the package
pepperflashplugin-nonfree is missing. After manually installation, however, visiting
chrome://version shows flash is disabled. How can I install flash plugin for Chromium on Debian Stretch?
Debian multimedia archive has the flashplayer-chromium package, which contains the necessary files (notably
libpepflashplayer.so). Just add
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org stretch main non-free
to /etc/apt/sources.list, then
apt-get update apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring apt-get install flashplayer-chromium
When adding deb-multimedia-keyring either accept the unverified package, or go to http://www.deb-multimedia.org/ for detailed instructions on adding the key manually.
Please note, that this archive contains updated versions of several multimedia related packages, so an
apt-get upgrade will upgrade some of the standard stretch packages.
Please remove comment every line in the sources.list file, but:
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
Then, run aptitude update && aptitude search flashplugin-nonfree.
It should find the following packages:
In the worst case scenario, you can download the package from the above link and install it through a dpkg -i .
