elementary OS Asked by user204360 on August 28, 2021

Have to update Adobe Flash in order to play games on line.Tried to download it from website but get a box that asks me to choose an app to open it with,but I have no idea which one I should use. I know you can also use terminal,but I have never used it and don’t know the proper commands. Could someone please point me in the right direction so I can get it working again.

One Answer

Option 1: via Adobe website

  1. Go here:
  2. In the drop-down lists, select Linux 64 bit and FP 32 for Ubuntu (apt).
  3. Click Next and follow on-screen instructions.

Option 2: via Terminal

Launch Terminal and execute the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb $(lsb_release -sc) partner"

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt install adobe-flashplugin browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash

Then restart your browser and go to to check if Flash plugin is working.
