I am wanting to install Chromium-browser in Squeeze. I notice that it is in the stable repos, but it seems to be fairly out of date. I was wondering how difficult it would be to install it from the unstable repos and what the consequences of that might be?
I have been messing around with Chromium browser. In particular, I have been attempting to set it up to open with various privacy features enabled, similar to how I have been running Iceweasel. I have sorted most of these issues out, by starting Chromium as follows: /usr/bin/chromium-browser -disk-cache-size=0 --incognito --proxy-server=127.0.0.1:3128. I have not been able to find the steps to disable or block favicons from appearing in the Chromium browser ui. I was curious if someone might know what steps are necessary to disable the favicons in Chromium browser. Alternatively, I could disable them in either of squid3 or privoxy (the two are chained on my machine), although I am not sure how to block 'favicon,gif' via either squid3 or privoxy, which should disable most, if not all, favicons in Chromium.
I'm not sure what the problem is but any browser i have crashes after some time of use, I've tolerated it for some time but its just too much of crashing, I have installed opera and chrome and both of them crash too..
I've been using Debian for a month or so now and was really happy with it. I wanted to use Chromium browser and followed the instructions on the Debian wiki [URL].... but the install deleted a load of settings, network manager etc. Is there a way I can find a log of what happened? Is there a way to reverse that or shall I just reinstall?
If I watch a video on YouTube, the browser crashes when I try to change to another webpage. Typically, the video will play through but a few have crashed midway. It always crashes on changing the webpage after a video starts (whether it finishes first or not). There is no error message. I have searched the forum for 'iceweasel crash' and didn't see anything quite matching my own problem. I did look at related posts and none of them solved my problem. I'm not sure if the videos are HTML5 or flash. Perhaps a mix of both.
There's no problem with browsing regular pages, even if they have video advertisements in a sidebar. This seems to only be happening on YouTube. I have turned off all browser extensions and plugins with no improvement.
I've searched the internet and seen where there was a security problem with Flashplayer a month ago and the symptoms (if hacked into) sound similar to what's happening to me but I am using the latest version of Iceweasel and this bug is supposed to be fixed.
My Debian install is only about a week old and was a clean install to a formatted partition. I've added a few minor apps since install but nothing that would effect this. I also installed nVidia's proprietary graphics drivers. I can watch dvd movies, MP4's, .flv files, etc with no problems.
Is anyone else running into the problem with the latest LastPass extension (1.73.3) for Chromium? It works fine on my Ubuntu install, but crashes Chromium 12.0.718.0 (0) on my Fedora 15 (Lovelock) install. I have a support request in to LastPass.
After updating to Natty Narwhal, Chromium began to occasionally crash, with the screen going black except for the mouse,which would freeze seconds later. Any sound playing will loop the last second or so, and no keyboard commands have any effect. As far as I can tell only a hard restart works.
The exact same thing happens with Firefox as well, except that Firefox freezes with the screen image, not blackness.
It is not consistent, but has been getting more frequent, and I have noticed a pattern of the crashes being associated with paying Flash video, and is almost certain with such.
I have tried updating Flash, Chromium, and running the Update manager roughly daily for a while now.
I can follow instructions well and usually actually understand what you're talking about.
today i upgraded to ubuntu 11.04. it was a somewhat successful install (see here, another thread i made about the install itself:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...5#post10731595). now, however, unity (or ubuntu itself?) is crashing and going to a blank screen for seemingly no reason. the screen will freeze for about 3 seconds, and then it all goes black, no error text/message or anything. it seems though, that ubuntu is still running, because i was able hit ctrl-alt-f1 and it worked.
I've got a fun one for you. What makes absolutely any attempt to view a flash video crash Ubuntu 10.10, both in firefox and chromium? Lately, firefox began doing this. I switch to chromium, same thing. Also, the system completely locks up after about 30 minutes online if I can get the thing to work at all. When this happens, the rounded edges of all windows disappear, the menus become unresponsive, and any attempt to open the system monitor to end the offending process results in an "Unable to fork new process, system resource unvailable" something like that.
My entire online routine goes like this: open terminal, su to admin account to enable ufw (which will not run at boot no matter what I try), su to normal, limited account, open web browser, things explode (or work for 15 minutes before freezing completely.)
System: T400 notebook, intel and ATI graphics, only intel graphics enabled. 9.10 64-bit, whole disc encryption. New install. My system recently started crashing periodically. At first there was no problem. There is no particular program that causes a crash. I havent edited any configurations. The most recent packages I installed were some data recovery packages and Gkrellm. Is there any way to find the time of installation for each package?
I upgraded to kernel 2.6.32 Ive been looking at the syslogs and before every crash there are several lines of:
Jan 9 20:46:24 username wpa_supplicant: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS Jan 9 20:48:24 username wpa_supplicant: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS Jan 9 20:50:25 username wpa_supplicant: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS
I did a google search on this error but the only real suggestion I found was the kernel upgrade.
For some reason, i cannot set my default browser to Chromium. Whenever i open up Chromium, it asks whether it should be the default browser or not. I say yes i mean "Set as default" But nothing happens. When i open it again, i am greeted with the same question again.
So I've been poking around google and trying to figure out if there's an answer - or at least a semi-solution to this problem, and have come up with nothing. I've just recently installed Chromium and since I've had it on my Windows 7 install, I'm trying to set it as my default browser, but for some reason it doesn't seem to stay my default browser.
Opening and closing it seems to erase the setting as it always tells me that "Chromium is not your default browser, would you like to make it your default?" And I don't know why.
It keeps asking if I want to set it as default.I always press 'yes' and when I exit and open it again it asks the same question...If I say 'never ask me again' it stops, but continues after I reboot the computer..
For a long time now, chromium-browser just opens and eventually throws the unresponsive error message up and asks me to kill the pages or wait. None of the options work, can't even get to the preferences because that is now a page inside the browser. I have purged, reinstalled, tried manually deleting the folders, installing Google Chrome, purging, reinstalling that with no luck. Unless, I missed a location where it is still storing something, I have absolutely no idea what the problem is. I wanted to know if anyone could help with this problem.
In Ubuntu 10.04, installed Chrome from the Ubuntu repos: chromium-browser 8.0.552.224-r6859According to about:plugins mozplugger is supposed to be handling pdf, ps, ppt mime types, but for all of these I get a black browser window saying "Missing Plug-in".I'd like to view these filetypes inside the browser using either adobe reader (8.1.6) or evince (or even just gv).Here is an excerpt from /etc/mozpluggerrc:
I installed chromium through the software center but every time I open it up it reminds me that it is not the default browser. I click "make default" every time but my computer still makes firefox the default browser. How do I change this?
I've installed chromium browser package from Index of /repositories/openSUSE:/11.4:/Contrib/standard I notice that the taskbar icon has been missing (for quite some time) - I can confirm it on 3 different openSUSE 11.4 installations - on my laptop, my home HTPC/gaming rig and the worstation at work. The icon in the gnome main menu->internet->chromium looks fine but the icon I get in Compiz Ring Switcher seems to be the same white box icon with the blue bar. I'm sure it started happening since an update of Chromium in Feb/Mar timeframe. Does anyone else face similar problem and may be found a solution to get the icon fixed in the taskbar? I've attached a screenshot showing the problem.
openSuse 11.4 + Gnome 3 (upgraded from oneclick install). A couple of ago I ran zypper update and there were some updates available for chromium (and a few other things). I installed them, did some work in libreoffice (dint use chromium then) and turned the computer off. Today I needed to do some web surfing, so boot up my computer, launch chromium and get the following message (I translated it from spanish as I use the spanish version of opensuse)...
Failed to launch <<Chromium web browser>> Failure executing child process <<chromium>> (The specified file or folder doesn't exists) Before the "update" chromium worked perfectly. Now it doesn't even start.
