Flash for Chromebook with Ubuntu
If you installed Ubuntu on your Chrome Book and the Adobe Flash plug-in is not working, follow the instructions here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/chromebook-central/Oia5YM2xqew. Note that you may need to restart the C7 before everything works properly.
After a week or so, my flash player stopped working again. Here is what I did to restore it:
In the Chrome browser:
- Type “about:plugins” (without quotes) into the address bar (it should display a list of plugins on your device)
- Scroll down to the “Adobe Flash Player” line
- Click “enable”
- click “always allow”
Exit and restart Chrome – and enjoy Flash again.
Note: The browser may interpret the “about:plugins” address as a true Internet address. Just try again – open a new tab and copy/paste – or type – the text into a clear tab / address bar.

I realize that I have not been posting for some time now. Please bear with me for a couple more weeks. I am involved in a pretty major project that requires my full time. I hope to have it under control within the next week or so. I AM STILL HERE!

Check it out. Chris posts about stuff that is weird and unusual – and sometimes funny in a weird sort of way. If you like Chris’ site, then check out my “Stuff from Ray’s head.” It is similar in content. My “Stuff” site contains “All the stuff that isn’t worth putting anywhere else.”
