I installed Chromium via a repo generously maintained by Tom "Spot" Callaway. Since it's his repo I thought I'd contact him, but I don't really know how - so I'm brining my issue to the forum to see if anyone has a possible solution.I've been using Tom's Chromium fine for the past couple months. After a "yum update", Flash no longer works in Chromium. It works in Firefox. If I try to play any Flash videos it's just a blank box.
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 was using Chromium Chrome 5.0.337.0 and Flash was working properly. Today I updated to Chromium 5.0.342.0(With "zypper update") and the Flash is not working anymore. I also installed Google Chrome from Google and it has Flash working.
On my HP i7 based laptop the latest kernel 2.6.33-147 and possibly Nouveau/X.org seems to have broken suspend. ie If the laptop is suspended then when woke, the screen is dead and networking does not work and I cannot change to a different console.If I boot the previous kernel this behaviour does not occur.
after running an upgrade chromium browser shockwave flash plugin crashed! if you have the same problem i have a workaround. firstly open firefox goto a website that uses flash (not videos) i used bbc iplayer, then right click and click on "settings..." the left most tab shows the "enable hardware acceleration" tickbox. untick it
then close and reopen chromium and go back to a flash site e.g. videos and test it is working. the reason this worked for me is that there is a bug in either googles chromium or the unix/x11 build of shockwave flash or my graphics card drivers. there seems to sevral bug reports regarding this on the net [url]. flash could be a little slower now it doesn't have the hardware accelerating it. so maybe the setting could be re-enabled in the future?
I updated my fedora 12 GNOME installation. Now Compiz fusion is not working. It says Accelerated 3D support not found. Though Nvidia drivers are already installed. Now I can't even ALT+TAB between open applications.
I tried "metacity -- replace" but then windows wore a weird look with only a minimize button. No sign of maximise & close buttons.
I updated last night and after a reboot I can get the GDM login but as my desktop loads it suddenly stops and complains of an error and won't load. If I load legacy Gnome desktop with Compiz it loads but ALL the lettering and words on the interface are messed up. By this I mean the letters are upside down and the words are spelt backwards. The mouse menus also work in reverse as in the menus themselves are also upside down and the highlighting moves from bottom to top as I move down the menu. Amusing but not what I want from my computer. There is nothing in /var/log/messages or /var/log/Xorg.0.log that would indicate anything is wrong.
I sooo don't want to have to rebuild, again, because of instabilities in F15 updates.
I'm on 10.04.I was curious to see the new features implemented (mainly geo-location) in Empathy, so I added their PPA and did an update. After updating, the notifications for Empathy become separated from the MeMenu (separate icons, no 'Chat' option is specified when I click the MeMenu), although I can still update my status by clicking on my user name.Does anyone know how to integrate the new Empathy back into MeMenu? If not, how can I roll back to the previous Empathy version that works with MeMenu?
After I had upgraded the system to Fedora 14, the icons for pretty much everything except for programs and plain text files in gnome theme (and every other theme that shares them) became inaccessible - they are replaced by a standard icon that appears when no other is found. Other themes, that share no icon with gnome (tango, gnome-colors, etc.), work correctly. I'm using Xfce desktop.
I've deleted icon-theme.cache, but it did nothing.
I run an Aspire One 522 with a Broadcom BCM4313-Wlan-Card and Fedora 15. To run the card, I had to install der broadcom-wl-Driver, as described here: [URL]... It worked okay. (Althought not perfect. It crushed everytime the whole system, when it tried to connect to a WLAN-Net, unless I first started the Windows on the computer, then shut it down and restarted Fedora. But maybe thats some strange Dual-Boot-thing.) Anyway. After I updated the Kernel to 2.6.40 it seems to be broken. I deleted the driver, reinstalled it, tried the B43-driver. But no mater what: It seems like the NetworkManager doesn't find the card at all. lsmod shows that a modul "wl" is running. And - as mentioned - I installed the Kernel and the two other packages fresh form the repositories.
is anyone else experiencing difficulties with the latest chromium daily build? whenever i click to launch it, it appears, then closes 1 second later i know that chromium daily build is obviosly not suppost to be a reliable browser, im just curios to see if anyone else is experiencing difficulties aswell
I*had an update today and, since, Flash full screen is jerky and the sound comes as through a PVC*pipe.nybody has this problem?How do I find the updates that arrived today?*Is it possible to revert to a precedent version?
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 just install the latest beta chromium by executing these commands:
The problem is I still want the Stable version of Chromium, and I want the developer version of Chromium not the beta release. So I got 2 problems: I need to downgrade this Chromium to the Stable release and then I want to install the developer release of Chromium and not lose this Stable release. I'm currently running 11.04 Ubuntu..
In my F12 box,whenever I open ..... in firefox, it says either Java is disable OR install latest version of Adobe flash player. I checked in firefox prefrences menu and and there I see already Java / java-script checkbox in checked for enable and along with it I have the latest flash player installed as per the manual install suggested by the missing plugin notifier.
It seems today's kernel update has given a few people some difficulty - but my symptoms seem pretty unique.
* I go through GRUB normally. I 'esc' out of plymouth, and watch my services start. I get message 'mdadm: No arrays found in config file'. Don't remember seeing this before, don't have any RAID devices.
* Next, my file-system gets re-mounted in read-write mode (don't know if this is normal or not). Then, my services begin to start-up. My last service is 'crond'. All services start normally. When it gets to 'crond' the [OK] status is never reported. Visually, the screen flickers a few times, stops, then nothing happens. I can type characters though, and they do show up.
* If I then shutdown my computer by pressing the power button, the shutdown procedure begins. 'crond' shuts down successfully (indicating it started just fine), and the computer goes down normally.
* I don't believe this is an NVIDIA issue. I rescue-moded and changed my XORG.conf to the basic VESA driver to eliminate this possibility.
* Worst of all -- No older kernels work now either. They behave in the same way. When I try to boot to other run-levels, no luck either. This tempts me to think the problem might be file-system related and the re-generation of grub.conf threw something off?
found this in my boot log nvidia.ko for kernel 220.127.116.11-174.2.22.fc12.x86_64 was not found. and the driver is disabled and X is not working correctly. I tried removing the driver "yum remove kmod-nvidia "
then re-installing and rebooting. same issue I went to the fusion site and followed there install guide again same issue. made sure the free driver is blacklisted in grub.conf kernel lines
I updated this morning to the latest bugfixes for F13. For some reason, networking has become un-available after the required re-start. I am using a fixed IP. Tried to add eth0 DHCP, which initially worked, but became unavailable after a few minutes as well. I suspect there may be an issue with the card's MAC address which may or may not be detected correctly.. Has Networking been updated somehow in this bugfix release?
Just last week I upgraded to F14. Just today I did the latest yum upgrade, and it included an update on Open Office. (1) I now have Open Office 3.3.0 OOO330m14 (Build:9542). According to the OO Web site, version 3.3.0 is still beta!!! 3.2.1 is still the stable release for download. What is Fedora doing? But that's just a general question; here are some specifics. Printing is virtually broken.
(2) Just opening the File -> Print window takes almost 5 seconds. The blue bar along the bottom of the window shoots across 8 times!! I'm hoping this is not the price paid for the new feature of having an unreadable copy of page 1 appear on the left side of the "Print" window!
(3) The "Properties" button is definitely broken. Click it and select the "Device" tab. I set "Printer Quality" to "Draft Grayscale." Then suppose I print 5 pages. Then I want to print the next 5 pages. The Print Quality is back to Normal! And that's without even closing the document, much less closing OO. Closing OO should save the printer settings for a document. But printing two times in a row without closing the document should definitely preserve the settings I make. It doesn't.
(4) Under System -> Administration -> Printing, I set the print quality for the printer to Draft. That also is completely ignored by OO.
(5) In OO Tool -> Options -> Load/Save I have checked "Load printer settings with the document." That should surely imply that when you save a document, the printer settings are saved with it. They either are not or they are not loaded or they are ignored.
(6) When I select the page numbers to print, that is so slow, the numbers don't even appear the instant I type them. That blue bar across the bottom of the window keeps shooting across until all the numbers finally appear.
(7) Under System -> Administration -> Printing there are two driver choices for HP Officejet 5600: hpijs and hpcups. Neither makes any difference for this behavior.
(8) I have several printers. Not even the printer I selected for doing the printing is preserved from one set of 5 pages to the next.
Who has ruined everything? Fedora or Open Office? On a more practical level, any ideas? Am I missing something? I've used OO with Fedora for years. None of this ever happened before. I NEVER had to select the printer and reset printer quality EVERY TIME I printed without closing a document. Plus, for any new document, the printer quality options in OO would be set to what I specified in System -> Administration -> Printing.
I have a Macbook Pro 5,5. I had Fedora 14 installed on it, updated to the latest version. I updated the kernel, and performed an update. Now, every time my system starts, it loads up the startup fedora bar, and it gets stuck at the bar being loaded 100%.I press ESC to see what is going on behind the scenes, and I notice that the problem is that atd cannot start up.
I've just installed 100+meg of updates and rebooted only to find that when I login the desktop fails to boot. Opening a root-console, I killed Compiz which dropped me back to the login screen where I logged-in again with the desktop starting successfully. From there I disabled Compiz and have no problem starting the desktop now. But that's not really a solution.Even stranger, if I now try logging in with and older kernel version and with Compiz off - if I try enabling Compix now, the desktop just freezes - it also fails to complete loading the desktop. So both the current-kernel/Compiz seem to be linked to the problem in some way!Has anyone else experienced this, and is there a solution? I miss my desktop-effects!
I ran update on my ASUS N51Vf laptop yesterday and among the updates there was one for udev. After installing it udev refuses to start at all saying: "iTCO_wdt: unexpected close, not stopping watchdog". Then I get to login but not for long: after several seconds either system reboots instantly or it hangs shutting down display. Is there any way to rollback udev update somehow considering I can't even login into system?
