Debian :: Use The Repo For Chromium And Its Dependencies?
Jun 19, 2010
I usually install chromium from the frickelpatz repo. On one previous update I noticed that other packages that had not been installed from frickelpatz were updated with packages from there (i guess frickel had a higher version number - k3b i think the package was). So I would like to see what other packages it offers so I am aware of which packages are at risk. failing that is there a way to tell apt that i only want to use the repo for chromium and its dependencies?
I'm running 11.3 KDE 64bit I've installed Google-chrome browser, but it's unstable the crashes when trying to send attachments in Gmail How do I install Chromium-browser? What repo is needed in Yast? I've installed it on my Mandriva box and its much more stable
This isn't the first time this has happened and it can get *very* frustrating but when I tried to install gimp today I got:
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
So I then did a quick
Is there something I am overlooking here or is the GIMP installation (in)correctly asking for misnamed dependencies? If so, is there a way to report this to the RPM repo to ensure it is corrected quickly?
Is there a package that I can install that will satisfy this dependency? I am unable to locate anything other than the source here and here, but I'm also unsure if this is even the right package or if source this old is what gopdder is asking for. I'm looking for a package.
I often use the option in Chromium to create 'application shortcuts'. These are instances of Chromium that make a website look more like an app by not including most of Chromium's toolbars. I use it for gmail and google docs and spreadsheets and calendar. In 11.04 I have set up Desktop launchers and copied them across to the Launcher (what an odd way to add something to the launcher, why no right-click 'add launcher' option?)
The problem is that the launcher thinks all these apps are chromium (which they are really, but I would like them to be seen as separate apps). If I minimize my gmail window, a little triangle appears next to the chromium icon, not the gmail icon. To get the window back, I have to click on the Chromium icon. Clicking on the gmail icon launches a new instance of it (also tied to the Chromium icon).
if i run chromium with --enable-gpu-rendering flag chromium's display looks like it's shattered into thousands of pieces and I can't understand a thing. This doesn't happens if I have a previous instance of chromium opened in the usual way, without any flag. In this case if I open another chromium window with the --enable-gpu-rendering flag it's display looks ok, but I can't figure out what's the problem and how could this be fixed if there's solution for it of course.
I made a shortcut with chromium browser to listen.grooveshark.com. This is great as it's almost like the grooveshark VIP desktop application like this. However AWN dock groups it with other chromium windows like this:Kuvakaappaus.jpg
Is it possible to force AWN to group this specific chromium window under the Grooveshark launcher that I have in the dock? Turning off grouping does not solve this either, as it just shows grooveshark as another chromium window.
Is there stability advantages to installing the mint-meta-debian package from the repo below??? I have read that LMDE is safer than running Testing because there is less chance for breakage with LMDE. Less risky overall. Is that true?
# Linux Mint Debian Edition (I get Firefox from here) # get the mint-keyring from the repo deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
i'm attempting to know and understand fedora more and i will spend probably the next month pouring through all the forums and documents to answer more of my own questions. but there's quite a bit here, so i'd thought i'd ask some noob questions to get me started a little.
ive installed fedora 14 64bit and chosen only kde as the desktop. i selected an extra 2 repos besides the default, fedora 14 -x86_64 and fedora 14-x86_64 -updates. i believe this kernel is installed: 220.127.116.11-83
1. i can only see the 2 extra repo's as being "checked" in kpackagekit, shouldn't i see the default repo also ?
2. i dont have an applet in the system tray indicating the system is up to date, does fedora have this by default ? also after a clean install i ran yum check-update and yum update but the message sayes: "no packages marked for update". i'm not sure if the system is auto-updated during install or not, but with other distros iv tried there is always atleast a few updates needing to be done after install.
3. is kpackagekit the fedora gui package manager ? i dont see any others.
4. i want to upgrade to nvidia drivers, but i think i am missing a non-free repo or something. when i enter: yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64 i get messages stating "no package" i get the same message with yum install nvidia-settings.i also tried this: LANG=C yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree info akmod-nvidia but it sayes repo not found.
I'm having an issue where Chromium doesn't seem to be installing the main binary, and possibly more.I installed the Chromium package through aptitude, and everything seem to go through without errors.When I attempt to run chromium either through 'chromium-browser' or 'chromium', bash says the command is unrecognized.I did a search, and browsed through the 'usr/bin' folder. I found nothing that could possibly be the binary.
For some time (I don't remember exactly how long/since when, maybe since I switched to i3 window manager?) I have the problem from title.
Chromium browser uses completely different programs to open files than file browser (thunar). And most of the time thunar has associations I want. For example thunar opens PDFs with iceweasel, and chromium opens them with GIMP (!), note that I have never changed this king of settings. Until I changed it today chromium also used Baobab (I didn't even know it existed before I saw it) to open directories ("show file in directory" for downloaded files).
I know how to change for a single file type (at least for browser), but is there some way to set all file types to something sensible and keep both, browser and thunar in sync without doing all of that manually? Or at least revert it all to default?
Debian version: latest "testing" version. (I use testing because I really need up to date versions of a lot of programs)...
I tried to compile it but it seems to have one extra dependency after the other that needs to be compiled. I'm assuming that it should work since Google Chrome works for Lenny (apparently). Will it be added to backports eventually or anything of the sort?
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?
Peacekeeper is the web browser benchmark from Futuremark Corporation. In contrast to Iceweasel 5.0 on my laptop, my installed Chromium 6.0 does not pass this benchmark (it hangs after about 2-3 minutes). Here is the link to Peacekeeper: [URL]
I installed Chromium Browser and made it default. The version which is available through squeeze and wheezy main is a dinosaur, and as such I cannot install any Chrome addons. I tried ubuntu or launchpad ppa for Chromium-Daily. I added [URL] maverick main to my Third party Repositories. Its not working.
The terminal returns an error: W: GPG error: [URL] maverick Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5A9BF3BB4E5E17B5
YaST-->Software-->Online Update Getting error: There was an error in the repository initialization. 'repo-non-oss': Failed to cache repo (139). History: - repo2solv.sh "/var/cache/zypp/raw/repo-non-oss" > "/var/cache/zypp/solv/repo-non-oss/solv"

If I disable the repo-non-oss repository the update works fine. The URL I have for the repo-non-oss repository is:
Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss
This has been going on for over a week. Do I need to use a different URL for the non-oss repository? I live in New York, United States.
i'm can't install the g++ compiler. I've got the packages to install with the command "dpkg -i xxxx.deb", but i see a cross dependence between g++-4.3 and libstdc++6-4.3-dev. Or am I missing something?
I recently upgrade to Jessie and instead of installing Chrome from the google site I decided it was best to install Chromium from the Debian contrib and/or non-free repositories. After installing I then found that i had to install the pepperflash plugin. I find that viewing flash content ( I wanted to watch the SpaceX launch from the NASA website this morning) is almost impossible. The sound comes through okay, but the video comes through at about one frame per second. Fortunately I had Iceweasel as a backup.
Since Chromium does not support the NPAPI flash plugin, that is used by Iceweasel, are there other options? I can delete Chromium and install Chrome but I have heard there are issues with Chrome and Jessie. Perhaps I should just give up on Chrome/Chromium altogether, even though I think the web page presentation is much better with Chrome.
Things I have tried: Uninstall and reinstall the pepperflash plugin Changed flash settings
By the way, I don't have problems with Youtube because I receive HTML5 content from there. Maybe I should contact NASA and get them to broadcast HTML5.
I've tried to search for how to install the dev builds of Chromium on Debian Squeeze, but the only information I find is on the google-chrome-unstable package. I tried to install the deb file with "dpkg -i google-chrome-unstable_i386.deb" but it told me there was an error and aborted. Is there any way to install the latest nightly builds of Chromium on Squeeze? On Ubuntu it was as easy as adding the lines: deb-src [URL] karmic main
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.
