How to setup Flash Player in Steam Linux

All right, a few days ago, I showed you how to install and setup the Steam beta client for Linux on Ubuntu Pangolin, the current Long Term Support (LTS) release. As you recall, there was one relatively big issue when browsing the game store. Videos were not available, because Steam thought that Flash was missing from the system. It was indeed there, but it could not find the player and use it as needed.

In this guide, we will resolve the problem. We will learn a bit about Steam client internals, we will learn how to fiddle and manually tweak Flash for Linux, although we have done this on many occasions before. And most importantly, we will restore the missing functionality to our Steam software. After me, gents.
