    Do you have to run the update script manually to update Flash or will newer version be downloaded and installed automatically?

        For now you can periodically reinstall with:

        $ sudo apt-get install --reinstall pepperflashplugin-nonfree

    Hi, just dropping a note: I couldn’t get the plugin to work until I rebooted. I had Chromium already installed beforehand. Worked like a charm after reboot.
