What's the correct way of getting flash support in chrome? I recently did a new installation, but I can't get flash to work

Code:
emerge -pv www-client/chromium www-plugins/adobe-flash www-plugins/nspluginwrapper

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

You need www-plugins/chrome-binary-plugins as chromium no longer uses the native flash player. This is actually a good move since adobe has dropped linux support.

@FroL_Onn, pgu:

make sure to update that package regularly - or as updates to flash get announced by Adobe

that way you're sure not to catch any trouble :)
