    How to run Chromium from a download (downloaded from http://download-chromium.appspot

    I don't know how to run chromium from a file I downloaded from http://download-chromium.appspot.com, when downloaded I extracted the file and I got a file called "chrome-linux", I don't know which file you open in order to get Chromium up-and-running.

    If you want to use Chromium, why not just install it from Software Centre? You will automatically get updates if you do so.

    Please wrap code in code tags using the '#' button or enter it in your post like this: [code]...[/code].

    If you are using an ubuntu release, you can find chromium-browser in software center or with synaptic manager and install it in the proper way.

    Note that the web you are trying to download say that it is a bleeding edge build of chromium and can be tremendously buggy.

    I've been using Google Chrome canary on Windows for a long-time now and I've not found it to be buggy at all, if I didn't want the latest version of Chromium perhaps but I want the bleeding-edge Chromium.

    Run "file" on the file and paste the output here.
