For weeks I have been trying to get the Chromium browser on my Ubuntu netbook. I am running 9.10 Karmic Koala and I have always had a hard time setting it up (flash, most of all), even with Jaunty. I installed the newest version of Ubuntu Tweak for Karmic and downloaded Chromium with it. It was so freaking simple and everything works amazingly well, right out-of-the-box. I was even able to watch flash videos with ease. Thanks to Ubuntu Tweak, I now have two great browsers on my Ubuntu machine....Firefox and Chromium. I guess I can now take the Chrome theme off of my Firefox. Hah!

I'd love to put Chromium on my machine. You use a tutorial? If so, share? :biggrin:

It's as easy as installing ubuntu-tweak & going to applications > third party.

I did this for my computer & my cousins' netbook. Easy as pie. Ubuntu tweak is a great tool.

Awesome. I already have Ubuntu Tweak installed for other reasons. Installing Chromium as we speak.

Thanks for the heads up. :biggrin:

I'm sorry. LOL In my haste...out of excitement...I forgot to add that it was in the Applications/Third-party section. It was so easy, I almost kicked myself and the best thing is that it is also included in the updates repository.

Ubuntu Tweak is an excellent program for pulling in the ppa's and keys with a few clicks.
