In the Wiki this question is answered by installing bodhi-online-media

but unfortunately it do not work:

ukki@NetVisvaa:~$ sudo apt-get install bodhi-online-media
[sudo] password for ukki:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package bodhi-online-media
ukki@NetVisvaa:~$

I do not like at all Adobe Flash  :angry:

 

But I need it to read my local newspaper http://ekaleva.kalev.../kalevademo/11/





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

O.K., but it's only for 64 bit .deb (For Debian/Ubuntu)  :(

That deb file will install on 64bit Bodhi. We are backwards compatible with all things that support Ubuntu LTS releases.

I think he means that Google no longer supports 32bit systems.

I seen a pepper flash package in the repo. I wonder if it will work with chromium?

 

If not, you can always install pipelight and then the windows flash plug-in.

I installed Chromium.  Adobe Flash works in Midori and Firefox but not in Chromium. How to find pepper flash and pipelight ?

In Bodhi AppCenter or "apt-get instal ...". 

I do not terrible need Chromium, but  :rolleyes:

Chromium / Chrome do not support plugins any more. Flash is built into the default Google branded Chrome browser I linked above.

Try adding the partner repository to install adobe-flashplugin

Just uncomment the line in /etc/apt/sources.list (sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list scroll down to the line and remove the #), the one with "xenial partner", then: sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

 

Then launch chromium passing the parameter for the version: chromium-browser --ppapi-flash-version=23.0.0.207

To find out your current flash version you can always go to: http://www.adobe.com...re/flash/about/

 

This method is still working even in 32bit ubuntu 16.10, 16.04 is no problem.

 

Confirmed working with bodhi 4 legacy.

 

Do note this flashplayer needs a cpu with sse2 (ie. P4/Athlon 64). Chrome 33 had the last player compiled with sse. You "could" copy out the libpepflashplayer.so file from it to work in a modern chromium, but you better whitelist your trusted sites with flashblock/noscript as you are not getting security updates anymore in the case you manual copy this file.

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer works. Flash clips are displaying in both Mozilla Firefox and Midori now.
