I've followed those instructions before... and again at your suggestion... Flash is still not showing up in the plugins list. Mind you I am not running Chrome but Chromium if that helps
Please update your chrome to latest version.Latest flash player will be embedded in chrome latest version.
Just for the benefit of the other folks that have been trying to provide help on this thread:
The open source Chromium project is distinct from Google Chrome. Chromium does not bundle Flash Player.
You'll need to grab the PPAPI installer for Flash Player, which targets Opera and Chromium:
Just choose the appropriate platform and option from the dropdowns.
If you've done that and you're still not seeing Flash Player listed, it's quite possible that Chromium broke Flash plugin detection again. You can usually work around this by supplying the path to the plugin via commandline parameters.
There's a guide to the available Chromium commandline parameters, here:
Hopefully it doesn't come to that, but if you're stuck, let me know and I'll get you detailed instructions.
