Shockwave flash plugin crashing in Chromium

Shockwave flash plugin crashing in Chromium

Postby jeffneedle » 08 Mar 2014, 14:20

Is anyone else having this problem -- getting a message that Shockwave flash plugin has crashed? I've turned off hardware acceleration, but the problem persists. Any help will be appreciated.

You do have the option of installing Chrome (and its own Google Pepper Flash player) by enabling pointlinux-repos-nonfree. Instructions for installation are at http://wiki.pointlinux.org/index.php?title=Install_Non-free_Applications#Enabling_Non-free_Repositories

If you must run Chromium and you are getting Adobe Flash errors, you may consider installing the PepperFlashPlayer from the Debian repository. More info is at https://wiki.debian.org/PepperFlashPlayer

Sorry for the late reply. I wasn't notified by e-mail that a reply had been posted, even though I enabled this when I originally posted.

Anyway, I enabled the point linux non-free repositories in synaptic, but google chrome doesn't show up anywhere in synaptic. Is this a known problem? Many thanks! And I promise to check here for responses!

I have not tried this, but here is a site. It says if you download chrome.deb it will automatically be added to your repositories.

https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/b ... form=linux

Hope this is helpful.

Step 1 (using Synaptic) is to install pointlinux-repos-nonfree:

Step 2 (using Synaptic) is to install google-chrome-stable:

Let us know if you did the above. Hope this helps :)

Sorry Jordan, I thought he had tried that. I agree, go with the Point repositories first.

Yup, installing Chrome in place of Chromium solved the problem for me. Thanks to all.
