Humnnn,,, This was posted to the Chromium Project report I made:
I've been fed up with the fact that the Ubuntu Chromium build does not support side scrolling already for a long time.
Now it turns out it actually WORKS in Chrome 35.0.1916.153
It would be nice if the Ubuntu could get the same update to chromium 35.xx or so. (it's still the Aurora version?)
Even though Chrome does run and the side scroll does work on Mint why is an outdated version of Chromium (with claims that it is the same as Chrome) the only thing available from the Software Manager??
The Mageia people have a version of Chromium that supports side scrolling. Why doesn't Mint?
After playing around in the setting on the Chromium Version from the Software manager and the Chrome version I downloaded and installed I have found a number of other things that are crippled in the Chromium Version.
The Extensions Flash Control and Flash Block do not work..
While both the Chromium and the Chrome refuse to print color properly from the right click menu, Chrome at least offers on the main setup page to allow for "Black and White" and that works while Chromium makes you drill down into the color settings and only offers "grey scale" which does what is says.
I am going to research this color printing issue in the forum for printing since it appears in both browsers it must be a driver issue.
I want to help elderly people with Old WIN XP machines & Dial-up access. Mint Cinnamon can be the answer, but they won't do terminal stuff. So I don't do terminal stuff to make sure they won't need to..
