This is a follow-up to that other thread.
The chromium snap is now being built from source, and I believe it is time to give it some serious testing, with the goal of replacing the debs altogether in the near future.
I would like to invite everyone to uninstall the debs and install the snap instead, in an effort to identify any outstanding issues that would prevent such a transition.
Instructions on how to do that:
# remove the debs sudo apt remove chromium-browser* chromium-codecs-* # install the snap sudo snap install chromium # copy an existing profile snap run --shell chromium exit mkdir -p ~/snap/chromium/current/.config cp -R ~/.config/chromium ~/snap/chromium/current/.config/
You can now run chromium from the dash/activities/launcher as usual, or from the terminal with
snap run chromium. If you had scripts that invoked “
chromium-browser”, you will need to change those references to simply “
Also feel free to drop a comment here if it just works for you without problems.
Many thanks in advance!
