Linux Chrome now with Flash & extensions

Yeah, somebody finally figured out how to make flash work in Chromium. Have a look at this blog. I checked it with youtube and it worked fine!

To install under Ubuntu:
sudo su
echo "deb jaunty main #chromium-browser" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chromium.list
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

To enable Flash support:
cd /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins
sudo ln -s ../../flashplugin-installer/

For extensions:
Start browser with the following:
chromium-browser --enable-greasemonkey --enable-user-scripts --enable-extensions

Click on a crx link (such as adsweep) and browse to chrome://extensions/ to check installation.

  1. Howdy,
    I have not tried Chromium yet. I am releide to find Google is not preinstalling Flash. I can still plan on trying Chromium. I certainly don’t want software as bad as Flash on any system of mine. Now, if NoScript will work on Chromium, then it may actually become usable.
    Good day,

    • Hey Ralph, no browser comes pre installed with Flash.. whether we like it or not, we are stuck with it, since lot of webapps are built on that.. You tube for instance..

  3. The latest build breaks it, not working anymore since incoming update

  4. Thank you; it works fine. Is there a way to enable Java too?
    I installed v8, but it does not seem to work, even with symbolic links in the plugins directory.

  5. My company has been waiting for Chrome’s widgets for months it seems. Up to now I have tested 6 extensions and am awed with the extensions. Firefox 3 has started to crawled and changes are great.
