We need only the bottom line, should append only "--ppapi-flash version=12.0.0.77" where 12.0.0.77 version of the flash player, at the time of writing this post, this was the most current, by the way, you can even specify the version is older, if you want. 
I had this kind of content 

exec -a $0 /opt/maxthon/maxthon $pepper --enable-smooth-scrolling --ppapi-flash-version=12.0.0.77 "$@"

Next, find the row 

"/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so"

and replace 

"/usr/lib/pepflashplugin-installer/libpepflashplayer.so"
