Want the latest Adobe Flash Player in Ubuntu Chromium browser? After v11.2, the Flash Player plugin for Linux will only be available via the “Pepper” API as part of the Google Chrome. Adobe will continue to provide security updates to non-Pepper distributions of Flash Player 11.2 on Linux for five years from its release.

There’s a PPA contains installer packages which will download the latest Google Chrome package, extract the Pepper Flash files, and install them for Chromium (Google Chrome itself is not installed).

UPDATE: Since Ubuntu 14.04, you can directly install Pepper Flash installer from Ubuntu Software Center, or by click the link below:

Click install Pepperflashplugin-nonfree

To add the PPA, press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal and then run command below:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:skunk/pepper-flash

Install Pepper flash installer:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer

After that, you can enable Pepper Flash Plugin for Chromium browser by running below command in terminal:

sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install

Restart Chromium and check out by typing in chrome://plugins, in my case the flash version is 11.9

Adobe Air for Linux is no longer supported, but you can still install the version 2.6 on Ubuntu & Linux Mint with a little tweak.

If you’re running programs that are built on AIR, follow the below steps to install Adobe Air first.

1.) Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window, I’ll do the job by running a few commands in terminal.

2.) Download Adobe Air 2.6 for Linux via wget command, it’s about 15MB.


3.) Install this package for 64-bit system:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

4.) Now the important part is to create a symbolic link to your gnome keyring:

  • For 32-bit, run the below 2 commands one by one:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
  • For 64-bit, run this:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

5.) Now give executable permission to the downloaded .bin package:

chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

6.) Finally run it:


Follow the setup wizard, and done!

(Optional) To free up disk space, run below commands to remove downloaded package and the symbolic link you just created:

rm AdobeAIRInstaller.bin; sudo rm /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
