Postby gnimmelf on Fri Nov 23, 2012 3:24 pm

Hi there
How do i get a never version of chromium (not the google chromium- the "blue icon one") if its not in synaptic?
i have 18.0.1025..... but i want 22.0.1229.94 or never? i tried the 64bit deb from here,

http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/co ... um-browser

but i says it needed dependencies, i couldnt find.

what to do?
kind regards
gnimmelf

What version of what operating system are you using? It makes a difference.
LMDE Mate 64-bit, LM17 Mate 64-bit
Debian Xfce 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.10 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.04 64-bit, Antergos Xfce 64-bit, PCLinuxOS LXDE 64-bit

Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

hi gnimmelf,

you can add a PPA to you repositories from Here if you wan the daily builds of Chromium.
https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/ppa

or from here if you want Stable branch

https://launchpad.net/~chromium-daily/+archive/stable
the stable build is at version 18 I believe.
So 22 would have to come from the daily builds.

good Luck

those ppa's are on hold, if you navigate to theirs page you'll see that the last build was 33 weeks ago; atm the only ppa with regular chromium update is

chromium stable https://launchpad.net/~a-v-shkop/+archive/chromium
chromium dev https://launchpad.net/~a-v-shkop/+archive/chromium-dev
mind you that those are unofficial ppa's

Thanks everybody.
i used the "daily builds" but as zerozero mentioned they seem on hold, and was last updated 33 weeks ago.
i will use chromium dev https://launchpad.net/~a-v-shkop/+archive/chromium-dev, but what i dont understand is that it seems
never ubuntu and mint versions have never versions of chromium and i cant seem to get the right keys aded to my software arcives.
im running peppermint, mint 10 and bodhi linux.

kind regards Gnimmelf

That version of mint has been obsolete for over 18 months and the repositories are closed. You will not be able to update anything via repositories and should install a newer version if you want newer software. The other OSes are nothing to do with mint.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

I Know... Peppermint is a fork of mint, and is in many ways similar. im using this and Bodhi until mint gets the speed back it had in mint 10 :D
