Chromium browser install

Post by msmith »

Has anyone been able to install the Chromium browser onto a Raspberry Pi with DietPi V117?

I get a 'Package has no installation candidate' error, when I run: apt-get install chromium

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

Chromium in apt-get is only available for x32/x64 systems (not ARM): https://packages.debian.org/jessie/chromium.

It can be installed without apt-get , but you will need to follow a guide, eg: http://www.techrepublic.com/article/fiv ... 3-as-a-pc/

Please let me know if you experience any issues after installing Chromium using a guide.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

Hi,
I've followed the steps in the guide, and it seemed to download & install ok. No error messages.
I now have the Chromium Web Browser program showing in the Internet menu.
However when I run it nothing happens. I see the '/usr/lib/chromium-browser/chromium-browser --enable-pinch' process running in the processes list, but nothing is displayed to the screen.

A little more information...
I tried running the browser from the LXTerminal, and get the following error stack:

t@R500002:/usr/lib/chromium-browser# ./chromium-browser

Not sure if this helps or not.

I have it working.
Since I was running it as root I needed to add the '--no-sandbox --user-data-dir' options to the command.

Thanks for your help.
