jam is on the lam, redirect to sanjeevr for dispatch.

I don't know if this is a variant of the linux issue with not loading the plugin in the sandbox. If it is Trung and/or Jeremy might have insight.

Easy enough to check this, just try with --no-sandbox .

Jeremy, I tried running Mac Chrome with -no-sandbox. Plugin was still missing with this flag. Thanks!

Still broken on 6.0.472.4 on Mac 10.6.4.

There's no need to comment here that it's still broken, that's why the bug is still open. Just star the issue if you want to follow progress.

Fixed?  How can it be fixed if it's still a "known issue"?  Like kukac7, it's still broken for my 6.0.472 dev on Mac 10.6.4 (64bit kernel).

I upgraded to 6.0.472.11 dev on iMac 10.6.4 OS X, and I still get "Missing Plug-in"

Running 6.0.472.11 dev on Macbook 5,1 running 10.6.4, still getting "Missing Plug-in" notice.
"Fixed" means that the code has been fixed, not that the code has shipped. Please stop posting.
Issue 50560 has been merged into this issue.
viettrungluu, "Your" means 6.0.472.12 Dev will ship the "Fixed" code?

In my installed version  6.0.487.0 (55176) Ubuntu 9.10, the location of the plugin configuration (at about:plugins) points to a non-existent file

Name:	Chrome PDF Viewer
Description:	Portable Document Format
Version:	
Priority:	0
Location:	/usr/lib/chromium-browser/libpdf.so

issue still persists with chromium version 9
This problem exists even in chromium version 11 and 13.

@Alfred:
PDF plugin is not supported in Chromium, so it's not automatically updated.
You should always manually update the plugin from the corresponding Chrome build (with the same version), it should solve the issue.
