Installed Google Chrome from the 3rd party repository, when i try to run flash Chrome asks me if i want to allow it to run, i allow it, then after i have a white page saying that i should right click and run the plugin, which i do, but nothing happens after i do it ... tried on multiple websites
did i report this bug to the appropriate place (I have found a couple of more bugs related to other apps but not sure if I'm supposed to report them here)? disabling sandbox kinda beats the purpose of chrome
@Staudey I think I have figured it out after i switched to Solus MATE, i watched the Install Output of Google Chrome, and I receive a warning during install of chrome ... tried googling the output and some hits mention inproper permissions for chrome-sandbox .... I haven't got the skills yet to figure it out on my own
here is the output log:
very easily might be something related to permissions, as it works under root, which means that root has permissions to read/write to it while the user doesn't ....
I also noticed that my user by default, isn't part of the "wheel" group ... i get that when i try to output journalctl -b > log.txt as a user so i need to sudo it to see messages from all users
this might be creating permission issues for apps, as on other distros a admin user is part of these groups
Journalctl shows the following after selecting "Run this plugin"

also, when i installed Solus GNOME, Chrome says that my chrome is managed by my Organization ... o.O I am not part of any organization
this is where it shows that I'm managed by my organization
and this is where it shows that I am not part of a organizatio
this is only visible on Solus GNOME, but maybe this could be the issue?
just bad packaging?
Hello to all,
Kyrios sent me there, as the same problem occurs when using Opera or Vivaldi in Solus Budgie. With Manjaro Budgie, be it with Opera or Vivaldi, Flash works out of the box. Hope this may be helpful.
Oh interesting. Vivaldi from the repository doesn't work?
Thank you for the additional data point! Not sure where to go from here to be honest. I did quite a bit of googling and tinkering around but I'm way out of my depth in this case.
so it's a Chromium browser related issue with Solus, as all these browsers work perfectly fine on my other distros .... also on Solus 3.99999 this problem didn't exist as i used pepper flash on it
that doesn't have anything to do with Google Chrome mate, Opera is Chromium based, Google Chrome is Google Chrome, flash works, on every single one of the browsers that I'm using ever since i switched from Solus, I had to switch because Flash is cruicial to my workflow as some apps I use are in flash ... try installing pepperflash on Manjaro and you will see it works
I have come across this article, could this be the problem? I'm not quite sure how to make this simlink on solus, tried the described command but doesn't work
So appears that flash on chrome is not working again.
Also, I am creating a laucher for a flash player in electron, but it isn't working either. Can it be related to this issue?
Flash on vivaldi from repository is working fine. But for chrome is not working.
Interesting. It's still works for me but probably because I already had the Flash component installed before.
Checking "chrome://components" I can see that Flash is outdated, but updating it won't work. I guess the same thing happens when you try to initially install it.
