Just want to thank the chromium browser team for making the chromium daily ppa available so early in the Lucid testing cycle, also a heads up for chromium users/testers :P


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily

Ah, great :) :) I'll set up my rsync script to grab the daily updates tomorrow :)

I'll be testing as soon as I've got my boot problem sorted out.

Great news. The version I'm currently running is "4.0.237.0". I can finally get to one of my financials with my latest update. They have progressed nicely.

Good tip thanks!

edit: I just updated, its "249"

Although, the 'get more extensions' link refers me to the google search page. Which I think is hilarious :P. Should I give the developers an infraction ? :P

I can't get my Chromium through the Peacekeeper test. It hangs up on the Social networking # 2/6 test.
I've tried that solution but it doesn't work.

I wonder when we will be able to start branching off Chromium for some more stable releases (more akin to Chrome), I could imagine getting tired of daily git snapshots at some point.... oh who am I kidding, bring it on!

When upstream has a "beta" and "release" branch available (when they release) we'll be able to have that.

I'm not sure what you mean.
That term usually deals with graphical editors of some sort.

i mean, using chromium, not supports WYSIWYG for text editors. for example in this forum. :(
i.e. you can't see what formattings you do in the text editor, until you hit the submit button.
i hope i used the term correctly???

I'm paranoid. Has there been some kind of code review to make sure there are no bits of spying in Chromium?

4.0.248.0 build also has bookmark sync (Via Google Docs). You can enable this feature by passing '--enable-sync' to the command line. Google account required.

WYSIWYG has nothing to do with Chromium. All you have to do is spoof your useragent to Firefox or something and it will work. Blame the forum software for not supporting Chrome or Chromium useragents.

I might have missed something essential but:

Package chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-nonfree is not available, but is referred to by another package.

The whole "spying" in Google Chrome is vastly exaggerated and hyped beyond all sanity. If you're that scared of cookies or history items don't use the web!

@Starks,
You mean its wrong with the forum Sw? I thnk i even cant copy paste an image in gmail composing on chromium. That means gmail themselvs hav nt added chromium useragent?

Starks

Perhaps. There's a similar issue with Firefox 3.6/3.7 using the Namaroka/Minefield useragent. Maybe Chromium's is too new.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/532.5 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/4.0.249.0 Safari/532.5

Also, in order to properly pull the ffmpeg codecs, you need to use the karmic repo for chromium-daily with the lucid one or just use the karmic one for now.

Have you added the ppa ? the ffmpeg package is also there. Try aptitude.

I noticed that "Sync my bookmarks" was grayed out. Now I know why. thanks for that tip.

BTW - We are now at "4.0.250.0 (Ubuntu build 32056)", with recent updates.

maybe you are hitting this issue:

Seems like clearing cache seems to fix the issue for me.

Change your sources from lucid to karmic.

Change your sources from lucid to karmic.

Now it works, but still no java.

Frash install of lucid, chromium no java, after that tried FF 3.7, no java, FF 3.5 java ok.

Anyone experienced/solved that?

Are you using 64bit? i'm having that problem too, when it didn't exist in 32bit

oh, and Java just plain doesn't function in both chromium and Firefox =], applets load, and close immediately

We now have both the Beta Channel (https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/beta) and the Dev Channel (https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/dev) in PPAs. They are perfectly aligned with the official builds so updates should pop up the same day, providing there's no build error and enough builder resources.

The daily PPA is still there.

As of today, daily: 4.0.286.0, dev: 4.0.266.0, beta: 4.0.249.30
(266 branched off Dec 6; 249 Nov 15)

I added the chromium PPA, "apt-get install chromium" and I got a game. :confused:

*Edit* I forgot to "apt-get update" so when I ran "aptitude search chromium" it didn't get listed. *facepalm*

Seems to be based on daily and not beta channel ( like the beta ppa mentioed above), which seems a bit odd as beta should be more stable
