Interestingly, it appears that I already have the official Adobe flash plugin installed and useable by Chrome, so the problem changes from "installing flash" to "replacing regular flash with the debugger version".
So I need to replace
libflashplayer.so with the one downloaded from Adobe. Sounds simple.
I then replaced
/usr/lib/flashplugin/installer/libflashplayer.so with the version included in the debugger install, and restarted Chrome. To my surprise, the second Adobe Flash Player listing in
chrome://plugins just disappeared!
It's as if Chrome doesn't like the debugger plugin for some reason. I tried various things to get the debugger plugin to appear but to no avail:
chmod +rx libflashplayer.so
nspluginwrapper -i libflashplayer.so(Results in error
no appropriate viewer found for libflashplayer.so)
mkdir /opt/google/chrome/plugins; mv libflashplayer.so /opt/google/chrome/plugins
How can I get Chrome to recognize the Flash debugger plugin?
