Ubuntu :: Chromium Freezing On Unity?

Jun 5, 2011

I used Google Chrome as my default browser on 10.10, and I liked seeing it as part of the Software Center this time around on Unity. (Except it's listed as Chromium; what's the difference!?!) Anyway, I'll get crashes with the browser pretty consistently. Has anyone else had problems with Chromium crashing on start up? (The problem may have arisen when I started syncing my bookmarks, as I do with all of my computers.)

Ubuntu :: Chromium Application Shortcuts In Unity - Not Including Most Of Chromium's Toolbars

May 2, 2011

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).

Ubuntu :: Flash Is Freezing Firefox Or Chromium?

Mar 12, 2011

I have got a problem with Adobe Flash. Flash is freezing firefox or chromium (I installed it just for test) until I kill plugin-container (in firefox).

I tested intensively and I can say that it freezes when Flash is going to reproduce a sound.

Ubuntu :: Chromium And Firefox Crashing Nautilus - Freezing System

Nov 9, 2010

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.)

Ubuntu :: Work Out To Add Chromium To The Unity Sidebar?

Jan 11, 2011

I have just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.10. I am trying to work out how to add Chromium to the Unity Sidebar. With other applications, I can launch them, right-click the application icon in the sidebar and select "Keep in Launcher", however Google Chromium doesn't appear to have this option. Does anyone know how this can be achieved?

Ubuntu Networking :: Run Chromium With -enable-gpu-rendering Flag Chromium's Display Looks Like It's Shattered Into Thousands Of Pieces

Dec 2, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: AWN Grouping Chromium Shortcuts Under Chromium

Oct 22, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Appearance - Disable The Unity Dock But Not Unity Feature Where Min / Max / Close Go Into The Command Bar?

Jul 17, 2011

1. I didn't like the icon theme and changed it to Ubuntu Mono Light. But is there a way to get the Min/Max/Close buttons to how they are in Radiance when maximized, or is that dependant on something else?

2. Is there a way to disable the Unity dock, but not the Unity feature where the Min/Max/Close go into the command bar?

Ubuntu :: Unity - Mythtv Or How To Hide Unity Launcher

May 8, 2011

Just moved to Ubuntu 11.04 with unity and only have one problem...For most of my desktop needs I prefer to have the Unity Launcher up all the time (fullscreen apps don't cover it), and have set this option with ccsm.

However, when I watch mythtv, it is also under the launcher (and the top panel as well). How can I force mythtv to cover the launcher?
What I really need is a keyboard shortcut to hide the launcher, but the only shortcut is for "show launcher". (I guess the devs assumed everyone would want it hidden by default).

This, by the way is not my usual way for viewing mythtv. I have a projector attached to the desktop PC and it doesn't get a Unity Launcher by default (in Twinview), so no probs. However, occasionally I want to watch something on my computer screen, and that is when this issue arises.

Ubuntu :: How Often Is Chromium Updated

Jan 8, 2011

i did some looking online and read that chrome/chromium will tell you if an update is available by showing a small orange dot by the settings wrench. i have never seen one. but it seems that (as far as i was able to figure out) i do have the latest version (8.0.552). i do remember seeing chromium having been updated through the Ubuntu update manger, but all i remember seeing are security fixes, not updates (although i might not have seen them). i also read that chrome/chromium has a 6 week release cycle. Its been awhile since ive seen chromium updated (unless update manger is doing it and not telling me). is there a newer version of chromium? or am i just too observant/impatient?

Ubuntu :: How To Clean Reinstall Of Chromium

Apr 26, 2010

I uninstalled Chromium including config files through synaptic, but then after doing a file search, I found lots of Chromium and Chrome files laying around. So then I used that search list to delete them, but I believe there are still Chromium/Chrome files somewhere on my Ubuntu 9.10.To regress a bit and for a little background on this problem, I wanted to uninstall Chromium because I want to see if I can correct this problem that I have with the browsing history file. I want the browse history feature to work and it doesn't - the archive has all of the activity from only one day in history, 8 Apr 2010, and when I try to delete that day of history, it says that is has been deleted, but it is still there, and it won't record any of my browse history.

So I thought if I could do a clean install from scratch, maybe I could get the history feature back.Anybody know where I can find the file containing the history files and/or tell me how to clean reinstall of Chromium?

Ubuntu :: Chromium Caused UNR 10.04 Freeze

Sep 22, 2010

I would like to report my experience while using UNR 10.04.

Everytime I connect my Nokia handphone either as a mass storage mode (for transfering video/image) OR using my handphone as a 3.5G Modem.

While connected or even after I finished connecting my handphone for the above purposes, when I close down Chromium browser, the whole OS will freeze!! Neither keyboard or mouse would work. This thing does not happened if I'm using Firefox for browsing internet.

I have to do a hard restart to use my netbook again.

6.0.472.53 (57914) Ubuntu 10.04

UNR 10.04: with updated software packages

Ubuntu :: Chromium Has Stopped Running?

Oct 8, 2010

Not sure what's happened here, I can only put it down to one of the daily updates.Chromium has stopped running, it starts, flashes on the screen and shuts down. I haven't done or changed anything as far as I know.I've unistalled it completely using Synaptic and reinstalled but no go.

Ubuntu :: Chromium Thinks PDF's Are Dangerous?

Dec 13, 2010

I know, it's really weird.Chromium version 8.0.552.215 in Ubuntu 10.10 is thinking that PDF files are dangerous.

This type of file may harm your computer. Download anyway? (Yes/No)I don't need this fixed immediately, as it is only a minor annoyance.

I know my sources of the PDF's so I know that they don't have any malware attached.

Ubuntu :: How To Manually Update Chromium

Apr 8, 2011

I recently converted my old laptop to Ubuntu a couple days ago and I'm loving it! This is my first post, but I've been reading the Ubuntu forums which have been helpful for tweaking little things and I'd say I've graduated from "absolute" Ubuntu/Linux noob to "almost total" noob in the last couple days (at least I know what the terminal is now!). On my regular PC, I'm a big fan of the Google Chrome browser, but for my Ubuntu machine, I was hoping to stay as true to the open source theme as possible, so while I do have Chrome installed too, I'd love to use Chromium as my primary browser.

The one drawback for me with Chromium vs. Chrome is that there are not automatic updates, but I wasn't able to find a clear, noob-friendly walk-through to set up a means to regularly update Chromium manually (either using the terminal or using the GUI). From what I understand, it would involve finding and installing Chromium build repositories, then checking and updating from those periodically.

The problem is that I don't really know how to go about doing any of this. How exactly does one add repositories? After they're added, how does one update from the Chromium builds located there? Are there any Chromium repositories for relatively stable builds versus the uber-newest test builds?

Am I completely off track and there's an easier way to set up a means to update Chromium?

Ubuntu :: Complete Uninstall Of Chromium?

Apr 29, 2011

I don't know if this is the right place to be posting, sorry if it's not. Basically, my issue is I installed a Chrome addon, didn't like the functionality, removed it, and it altered functionality of Chromium as a whole. So I want to remove Chromium and all its settings, then do a completely fresh install. Currently everything I've tried brings up all my old tabs and settings after the reinstall, as if I'd never done anything at all.

Ubuntu :: Chromium - Cant Download Any Extentions?

May 6, 2011

This morning I thought I'd give Chromium a bash. I use Chrome daily, and wanted to see what the differences where.After installing Chromium from the software centre this morning, I went to >tools>Extensions to load the the same on Chromium as I use on chrome. To my surprise the Google Chrome web store puts a banner at the top of the page that says:

Quote: we don't support your browser just yet. You'll need Google Chrome to install apps, extensions and themes.Which of course I already have chrome downloaded and installed via PPA, but that is besides the point.what can be done to rectify this. Surely Chromium browser allows the download and installing of extension?

Ubuntu :: Chromium Will Not Become Default Browser?

May 19, 2011

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.
