Running Flash on Chromium on Linux

When using the current version of VCenter for the DCS, you may encounter issues with flash, especially on Linux. The below assumes you’re running Chromium.


  1. Close Chromium.
  2. Ensure that “Canonical Partners” repository is enabled; this is done through the “Other Software” tab in Software & Updates.
  3. Run sudo apt update && sudo apt install adobe-flashplugin.
  4. Re-open Chromium, and navigate to the site in question.
  5. When you see the button that says “Install Flashplayer”, press it. Chromium should make a notification about a plug-in being blocked. Click this notification, and say “Run this time”.


Fedora is similar to the above, except:
2. Install the adobe dnf repository (architecture specific) using dnf install <url>.
3. Run sudo dnf install flash-plugin alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl.
And the rest of the steps are the same as above.

More info can be found at Here for Ubuntu and Here for Fedora.
