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 I notice that it is in the stable repos, but it seems to be fairly out of date.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'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?
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
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 use the debian(lenny), I cannot browse web. But I can use a root terminal to run [URL] command. The browser will work well. I can connect to web. It seems to my normal user cannot use the network, but the root can.
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.
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'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
I can watch movies without problems, with the default videoplayer in ubuntu and with xbmc.but if i have a chromium web browser window open (in the background) i have about 1 frame / sec in videoplayback and no sound.the no sound problem may be related to the fact that im using sound over hdmi. i am using the nvidia proprietary drivers for my gt220.how can it be that a simple webbrwoser is slowing down videoplayback in other programs?
I got chromium to serve as my faster browser. And due to me being a huge privacy nut, I changed my settings and locked the profile by making it read only. I would like to add adblock, so I need to somehow make the profile normal again. Heres the command I need undone: chmod a-w -R ~/.config/chromium/Default
So I've been trying to get a single user to login to an FTP site I've created using proftpd and I haven't had much luck. So check this out: this only applies to one user, I can "su" to the user account so I know the password is set, and I am even able to SSH into the box as this user. This totally eliminates a bad/incorrect password and the server IS accepting connections on port 21 because I can FTP as other users. I've ruled out the client because I tried locally and using a command promptWinders but still no luck. This is what I'm seeing in the logs when I attempt to connect using an FTP client.

I've installed chromium on Linux from a custom binary on the net. When I try to get to gmail or any other site that uses flash, chromium warns me that the version of flash that is shipped with the browser is stale and that I should be using the latest version and pointing to an adobe site.the adobe site gives me 3 options
1) yum 2) RPM 3) tar.gz 4) APT for ubuntu
since I'm on redhat, I can use either yum or RPM.Which one should I use and what is the command to install it so that chromium can use it.
I tried the Googles praised Chromium browser and while it seems to render pages fast enough and has a really nice interface, I experienced an annoying responsiveness problem. Opening a link in a background tab seems to stall the browser almost completely until the page has been loaded and rendered. For example scrolling the page that I'm currently viewing becomes almost impossible. The same actually applies to the current tab too, of course. If the page in the tab hasn't been loaded completely, scrolling is really really clumsy. I tried disabling the installed extensions and also tried experimenting with some command line options, but no help there.
