chromium browser

Post by root_2011 »

Hi,

I tried to install the chormium browser from sotfware manager in linux mint 11. I click in the
button install and it shows some progress in the "on going actions" bar up to 16%
after that the process seems to stop, progress is not shown anymore and the
browser is not installed.

Do you know what could be the problem during the installation of chromium?

thanks.

I find that sometimes when the Software Manager gets stuck, using the apt tool from the terminal might be just the thing to set things right.

Just open a terminal and type (or paste from here):

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
It will prompt you for your root password and then just type 'y' when it asks you.

If this doesn't work, it could be a problem with your internet connection at the time you tried or something like that.
