    Chromium Flash Pepper on precise, how?

    It's not acceptable for me to use Chrome but it's acceptable to use the spyware-cleaned Chromium. Even if I normally prefer Firefox, it's also acceptable for me for a few flash sites to use Chromium.

    My wish:
    Chromium with Flash Pepper on precise

    Should work well to play flash?

    Which ppa do I have to choose?
    https://launchpad.net/chromium-project

    Which branch contains Flash Pepper? Beta? Dev? Daily?

    Unfortunately they don't have precise added yet.
    apt-get can't see http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-da...amd64/Packages (they don't have it yet)

    Can I use http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-da...dists/oneiric/ ?

    Or should I learn how to compile Chromium from source?

    Can you give instructions please how to get Flash Pepper on precise?

    Thanks, installation succeeded.

    Flash doesn't work for me any better than the version from Ubuntu repos.

    Will they add Flash Pepper? Or is this exclusively for Chrome due to the closed source flash.so?

    They can probable add the Pepper API.

    But I got to download the flash.so from somewhere else?

    Re: Chromium Flash Pepper on precise, how?

    It starts but I am having the same problems as with Firefox.

    (Problems: can't leave fullscreen without alt + tab. Sound works, video lags heavily. Perhaps same problem like http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11887129 while performance can not be the problem. Also none of the suggestions from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1953796 worked for me.)

    (System: amd64, precise, ATI Mobility)

    (It worked before on edit: on oneiric, not precise. It also worked before on Windows 7. It also works in a vm on top of precise. Performance can not be the problem.)

    That's why I want to see, if Flash Pepper is better supported on my system.

    Purging fglrx and installing fglrx-updates fixed my problem.

    (jockey broken on precise, there is a confirmed bug)

    The question for Flash Pepper still interesting.
