[SOLVED]Chromium no longer available for mint

Post by JTemple »

Chromium is now an empty shell in software manager. Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternate. I have Firefox but need a secondary for websites that won't play nice with Firefox. Opera was just impossible with it's constant need for KeyRing password that I do not have.
Solved with a fresh, clean install of LM20.

Unfortunately my problem seems to still be keyring and I can not seem to find a work around. I am thinking no matter what browser I use it will still want a key ring password that I do not have.
