Chrome OS for Raspberry Pi Flash?

I have just installed the new Chrome OS for the Raspberry Pi on my Pi2 B. It works fine. The only thing that I have not been able to get to work is Flash on the Chrome browser. When checking for Flash it comes up that it is installed but disabled. Trying to follow what I can find about enabling it for Chrome, Flash does not come up as a plug in on the plug ins. Not sure how it would come up that it is there but disabled if it is not on the plug ins listing. Does anyone know if it was not included on the Raspberry Pi Chrome OS distro or how to enable it?

(There seems to be no details on the Chrome OS for Rasp.Pi on any of the websites.)

Fastest browser that I have tried so far for Raspberry Pi.

Thanks!

Hey I'm the lead developer for the chromium OS for the raspberry pi, you can find a lot of helpful information on http://reddit/r/chromiumRPI regarding flash, we just ported flash 20 from a chromebook to our distro, you can find that information on the subreddit, our official website is chromiumosforsbc.org

Happy to hear you are pleased with the OS

Went to the reddit- found how to install pepper flash. Unfortunately for me this is beyond my current skill level. Hopefully with a future update or release the pepper flash add on will be pre-installed/enabled and the start up screen problem will be fixed (I did not even know that was a problem until I read the reddit forum.

Thanks.

Sadly this probably will not happen based on the licensing issues with flash, I don't want release a distro that breaks the law by packaging flash, but we will try to make a easy script to install it.
