    need COMMAND LINE help.

    I went through this with XUBUNTU ... but I have another machine running LUBUNTU 12.04. The problem is I need to pass some parameter to launching CHROMIUM (the default browser for LUBUNTU). Here is the parameter:

    Code:
    --allow-outdated-plugins
    and though it was fairly easy with a moderator's help, not sure it is done exactly the same way with LUBUNTU/CHROMIUM. It has a CHROMIUM icon on the lower panel (there is no default top panel). There is also a Chromium Web Browser menu item under 'INTERNET' on the applications menu.

    The Xubuntu routine involved creating a file, giving it execution privilage, and placing it in a folder ....but that was Xubuntu and its desktop is somewhat different.

    Can someone help me get this done? Maybe even the same moderator who helped me with Xubuntu?

    Here is what we did for Xubuntu and CHROME ... but I am SURE there are differences for Chromium/LUBUNTU:

    Code:
    gksu leafpad /usr/local/bin/start_google
    copy and paste this code:

    Code:
    /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --allow-outdated-plugins
    ...then save the file.
    Next, we have to make that file executable. Issue this command:

    Code:
    sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/start_google
    And finally, in Settings Manager -> Preferred Applications, select Other for the Web Browser dropdown and enter in this command:

    Code:
    /usr/local/bin/start_google
    Thank you, thank you in advance.

    Re: need COMMAND LINE help.

    If you want to use executable file, you must in first line write name of interpreter. For example:
    #!/bin/bash/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --allow-outdated-plugins

    Easy and writely to use label in GUI.

    Re: need COMMAND LINE help.

    You could edit the .desktop file and add the needed option to it.
    Code:
    gksudo leafpad /usr/share/applications/chromium.desktop
    Look for the line that begins with Exec= and add --allow-outdated-plugins to it.

    PS - I'm not 100% sure that is the correct name for the desktop file as I don't use chromium, if it isn't a quick browse through /usr/share/applications should give you the correct name.

    This method will work for any version of Ubuntu.

    Thank you, Sir. I think you have told me something very important ... but I am not sure I understand what that is.

    The CHROMIUM icon on the lower panel has changed to something entirely different. When I click on it .. nothing happens. When I click on APPLICATIONS MENU/INTERNET/CHROMIUM WEB BROWSER icon, it runs but complains about outdated plugin. No fix.

    Should I have logged out/in ... rebooted, or even set it to executable? Dunno. I await your reply.

    Thank you.

    Re: need COMMAND LINE help.

    What error message (both in the browser and in the terminal) do you see when you run:
    Code:
    chromium-browser --allow-outdated-plugins
    from a terminal?

    and the browser runs properly ... no outdated plugin 'complaints'.

    This is a BRAND NEW installation of Lubuntu.

    Thank you for your help. Looking forward to your reply.
