Opera 28 flash player does not work (Ubuntu 14.10)

  • Hi everyone :
    I'm so excited to notice that the sycn function has been done!
    But I just met another problem about the flash player and cannot enjoy it yet.

    I've installed pepperflashplugin, the Shockwave plugin works fine with Chromium, but does not work with Opera.
    Also, I downloaded adobe flash player (.tar.gz) and have file already,but cannot figure out a a way to install this plugin.
    I tried to move it to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera and other places, non of them works.
    When I check installed plugins from "Developer Tools" -> “Plug-ins”, only the old shockwave plugin is there.
    If anyone can help me solve the flash problem, I'll really appreciate.

    I use opera 28 on my ubuntu machine, and the detail info is as below :

    Install: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera

  • Have you installed the pepperflashplugin-nonfree package? If not, try to apt-get it and then run this command: sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install. Then restart Opera.

    If that doesn't work, try to install this package: flashplugin-installer, and then restart Opera.

    I should also mention that your manual installation does not work because Opera only looks in these folders:
