Note (you need to have the flash plugin installed already (and verify that it works), for example with firefox):

then open gnome-terminal and go to /opt/google/chrome (or to wherever you installed chrome)

run the command updatedb (note: this might take some time and you might have to run it as root if sudo doesn't help)

now in the console, type:
Code:
locate libflash
You should get something like this:
Code:
/opt/google/chrome/plugins/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/openoffice/basis3.0/program/libflashlx.so
/var/lib/flashplugin-installer/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so

now in /opt/google/chrome/
Create the "plugins" directory, so type:
Code:
mkdir plugins
Now go to the plugins directory:
Code:
cd plugins
Now copy the shared library over to this directory:
Code:
cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so ./
go back to the google chrome root direcory:
Code:
cd ..
Now close all running instances of google chrome (otherwise it will just open a new tab, which won't work)
Now run google-chrome with the --enable-plugins option
Code:
./google-chrome --enable-plugins
Go to www.youtube.com and try running the first video you see.
It works!
