OpenSUSE :: Chromium Browser Icon Missing In Taskbar
Jul 8, 2011
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.
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
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.
I run a OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with Gnome & KDE desktop. When I run my Gnome desktop all my KDE applications are missing their usr/share/icons/hicolor/48*48/apps/nameofapplication.png picture. The KDE applications work, and when I go to that destination file the png. picture is present. When I run a KDE environment, my KDE applications (that are missing in Gnome) have their icon 48*48 picture. Any idea why when running the Gnome environment, there is a missing path to the png. file for only the KDE applications?
I have 2 identical hardware systems running 11.2.I swapped over the DVB card. In the second system is the TV icon in yast missing.Looked at hardware....the card is known.Any idea how to configure yast so it shows the TV icon?
I switched from 11.2 to 11.4 yesterday. I noticed that the Appearance dialog has only three tabs instead of four tabs. The last tab "Interfaces" does not exist, in where I can select "Show Icon in Context Menu". But I do not know, how to show icons in context menu.
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.
i cannot work out how to get the calculator icon on my top taskbar so i can access it fast from there, i know that with ubuntu you right click on it and add to taskbar, this doesnt seem to do it with xubuntu, i cannot work out how to do it.
I am using Ubuntu 10.10 there is an icon left of the clock, its for Assistive Technologies - Universal Access Preferences. I have uninstalled the program, but the icon remains left of the clock. how to remove that icon.
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?
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'm completely new to Linux. I'm having the hardest time trying to do the simplest things. I'm using Kopete and I was wondering if I can put the icon on the system taskbar by the clock? I can't drag it there, won't work. I also tried to right click the taskbar and open 'add new items' but Kepete doesn't show on the list.
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 have Chromium on 11.04 and I can't set it to be default. If I go into preferences and select it, nothing happens. If I open Chromium, it asks every single time if I want it to be my default browser. Regardless of what I say, it asks me each time.
I have an icon for what seems to be universal access preferences modifying that is residing near my notification area on top GNOME panel. I have been trying to figure out how to get rid of it, but can't seem to. I took the program off of autostart apps, and have checked running processes to see if I could find which program has it going but I have exhausted my limited knowledge base in solving this.
