    Hi there… great post.

    Although in Step 1., I think instead of:
    gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    it should instead use sudo privs:
    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    Also, instead of copying the flashplayer:
    sudo cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/

    I would use a link:

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/ /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/
