I'm on a workstation here and the admins haven't enabled Flash for Chrome, but it does work under Firefox. Is there some way I could config Chrome to point at the nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so that Firefox is using or copy it to my home directory somewhere and have it working?

Running Chrome 13 on RHEL6.

Chrome includes Flash player. You may just need to enable it.

Chromium does not include Flash player. If it does not recognize the same plugins Firefox does (and it should), you can try putting all relevant files into ~/.mozilla/plugins, one of the directories searched by chromium.

    Chrome doesn't always include Flash player, but symlinking the flash plugin into ~/.mozilla/plugins did the trick.

  • Thanks, I didn't want to run the flash installer in root and making a ~/.mozilla/plugins (in my home fo folder and dropping the .so file into worked like a charm). Dec 21, 2017 at 17:38
