How to activate Flash Plugin for Google Chrome on openSUSE 11.2

December 9th, 2009 by

A couple of days ago, Google release a Beta version of Google Chrome for Mac and Linux. After installing the RPM I has been notice that the flash player doesn’t work. For make it work do the following as root:

cd /opt/google/chrome

ln -s /usr/lib/browser-plugins/ plugins

Restart Chrome and you are ready to watch some videos on youtube ­čÖé

    I tried this and still not working for me. I don’t understand?

  2. Yuri Tsarev

    You have to install 32 bit version of Google Chrome package to use this workaround.

    Why do you use Chrome? Try Chrommium from Contrib. Plugins work by default ­čśë

  4. Just digged problem little deeper.
    To use flash in 64 bit version you need to link to lib64 directory:
    cd /opt/google/chrome

    ln -s /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/ plugins

  5. I have 32 bit installed and doesn’t work for me!! any suggestions?

  6. M├ím openSUSE 11.2 32bit, a podarilo sa mi v Google Chrome Beta pre Linux spojazdni┼ą Flash.
    Ale Flash v Google Chrome v Linuxe, (otestoval som zatia─ż len na openSUSE 11.2 Gnome s Kernelom 2.6.32) a Flash v Chrome nefunguje ├║plne tak ako by mal . . .

    Appreciate your efforts….I use openSuse 11.1 with 64 bit processor. Tried to fix by both ways suggested by Miguel and Yuri….didn’t work ­čÖü help

    • Hey Naren!! I solved it… first tried the Miguel way (Im using 64bit opensuse too) and didn’t, so tried the Yuri one, neither
      But realized that the second didn’t make any effect because the directory “plugins” already exists, so manually erased it:

      cd /opt/google/chrome

      rm plugins

      and then tried the Yuri:

      ln -s /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/ plugins

      and that did the trick, Now flash works on my machine with openSUSE 11.2 x86_64
