It's working fine in 1.16.

This is weird - the Flash plugin literally never calls in to the PPB_Flash::DrawGlyphs API when running on trunk, which is the likely cause of this. It does work on Chrome unstable though, and other Oxide versions.

So now I need to mind read the Flash plugin

It looks like this is because the PPB_TrueTypeFont_Dev::GetFontFamilies API is broken in GN builds, as a result of the wrong implementation of content::GetFontList_SlowBlocking() being compiled in. Linux/Ozone builds of Chromium performed with GYP compile the Pango implementation whereas Linux/Ozone builds of Chromium performed with GN compile in an empty implementation.
