Chrome and Chromium dropped support for the NPAPI plugins (Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface) in favor of PPAPI (Pepper Plugin Application Programming Interface) so all plugins that use NPAPI (like GNOME Extension plugin) are just not supported. The only alternative is using another browser that allows them (like Firefox) or asking the ...

Use this Bash script to get a list with all temporarily saved Flash videos: #!/usr/bin/env bash for flashpid in $(pgrep -f flashplayer.so); do cd "/proc/$flashpid/fd" for video in $(file * | grep '/tmp/Flash' | sed 's/\(^[0-9]*\).*/\1/g'); do echo "/proc/$flashpid/fd/$video" done done Mark the script as executable and run, for example ...

I've successfully extracted the Fedora/OpenSUSE RPM into my home directory and ran chrome from there. You simply need to make sure that the symlinks for the libraries are all there. This assumes that the libraries area already installed, and $HOME/bin is in my $PATH. I just ran: mkdir ~/chrome; cd ~/chrome rpm2cpio ...

It indicates that chromium may be passed a list of URLs on its command line. See the Exec key of the Desktop Entry Specification for a description of the available codes and what they mean.

Most browsers enable you to get a warning if you have HTTP content on an HTTPS page. This can be very annoying if you visit sites that mix HTTP content on their HTTPS pages. From your question it appears Wikipedia is one of those. When properly set, Firefox warns me visiting this page. A web server is not required to offer HTTPS. Many sites do not ...

1. Is ACCEPT_KEYWORDS='amd64 ~amd64 ~amd64-linux' a valid configuration? From man make.conf: ACCEPT_KEYWORDS = [space delimited list of KEYWORDS] So ACCEPT_KEYWORDS='amd64 ~amd64 ~amd64-linux' is a valid combination. 2. What about ~amd64-linux? amd64-linux is a Prefix thing. I don't know much about Prefix, but I can see amd64-linux in the list of ...

Perhaps wmctrl could be of some assistance. You could use the -c option that closes a window gracefully: wmctrl -c chrome The string chrome is matched against the window titles. Note that the window might not close if some message pops-up (e.g. when you have multiple tabs open).

The Pentadactyl and Vimperator addons for Firefox allow vim-like editing in text areas by pressing ctrl+t; I think there is also an option to turn it on permanenly. There is also It's All Text! that will actually launch an editor for you. As far as Chrome goes, it's not as easy, as the API is quite limited. They require you to run a server on your system. ...

Yes, it does use the linux kernel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Chrome_OS Which the kernel is what "linux" is (an OS kernel), hence the OS we all know and love is sometimes more properly called "GNU/Linux". The "GNU" part is the fundamentals of the userspace (as opposed to kernelspace) and without that, there is no guarantee at all about what ...

give the installation via terminal a try: open terminal run the command: sudo apt-get install chromium-browser alternatively you can add the chromium repository via commandline to your sources like this and install it from there: open terminal sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Chrome has been in OpenBSD's ports tree since at least OpenBSD 4.8. $ sudo pkg_add chromium Should do the trick, assuming your PKG_PATH environment variable is properly set. For more information on ports/packages, see here: OpenBSD Packages and Ports System

As described on the FedoraProject wiki on Flash, you might need the PulseAudio ALSA module. If one of the browser's flash plugin (or pulseaudio itself) has locked the sound device, other apps trying to use the sound device might not succeed.

There is a better way to fix your problem. The bug is that chrome's configuration files are created with the wrong label on it. To fix that, just run : $ restorecon -R ~/.config And you are done.

Adding to Shawn's answer, pentadactyl (and vimperator) allow you to press ctrl+i when in an text field to actually edit it in vim. It will save the contents of the text field to a temporary file, open that file in (g)vim, and read the (changed) contents back after closing the editor.

It's standard to print the Unicode replacement character in place of a character which does not exist in the current font. A possible fix is simply to change the default font of either your OS (if the browser inherits the OS settings) or the browser. For example, my Firefox 11.0 on Ubuntu 11.10 is using the "serif" font (which might be a synonym for ...

Something to play with It uses xdotool, which lets you script windows/desktop actions. If you supply the name of the browser as an argument, it'll find and reload the current page. You can set a default browser, so you don't need to supply one each time, and you can change whether you send a CTRL-R to reload, or SHIFT-CTRL-R to reload without cache. It ...

With Chrome 20.0.1132.57 (and many older versions), if you click on the right boundary of the address bar, between the star and the downward triangle in your picture, you can drag it left or right. The further left it is, the more room you have for icons. If you want to hide some icons and show others, expand the icon area to see all the ones you want to ...

When you run google-chrome, the process detects that there is an open instance of Chrome and sends it a message to open the file. The message contains the file name. Firefox works in the same way. The process that's started from the shell is not the already-running browser process. The <(…) construct works by creating an anonymous pipe. It is passed to ...

As found at AskUbuntu: Java (IcedTea) doesn't have a PPAPI plugin available, and so it's not usable in Chromium, since Chromium 34 in Trusty has switched to the Aura rendering framework and no longer allows NPAPI plugins. See also https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/chromium-browser/+bug/1308783. I guess it's a same with Oracle Java plugin. ...

You answered your own question, pepperflashplugin-nonfree is the way to go. In your case, you need to enable the wheezy-backports repository, adding the following line to your sources.list: deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy-backports main contrib non-free Then, update the list of available packages with apt-get update, and finally install it with ...

For some reason, web browser like to make the monospace font smaller than other text, which can make code harder to read. There are two ways to handle this in Chrome. Option 1: Customize Font Settings Click the wrench icon. Select "Preferences" Select "Under the Hood" Under "Web Content" you can "Customize Fonts..." -- you'll want to change the ...

You'll want to use yum, which is the Redhat command-line package manager. In this case, lsb and xdg-utils refers to rpm packages, which you can find in the Centos repos by typing yum search <pkg_name>. If you want detailed information about a package, you can use yum info <pkg_name>. Once you find the packages that you need in the repos, you can ...

In my experience the proprietary linux driver that nvidia offers can cause terrible performance issues with certain cards (especially older ones). The person that resolved their problem by reverting their driver to an older version is a good demonstration of the nvidia driver's regression problems. I'd recommend trying the open source nvidia driver known as ...

You may want to take a look at the Uzbl browser. It's a minimalist web browser based on webkit (the layout engine used by Chrome/Chromium). According to the definition, it's a collection of "web interface tools which adhere to the unix philosophy". It comes in 3 flavors: uzbl-core uzbl-browser uzbl-tabbed The latter 2 are finished products and ...

For some reason, the drag-and-drop mechanisms in both Nautilus and Konqueror do not work properly with the extension manager in Google Chrome / Chromium. I've found two solutions: To force the issue, you can use an alternative file manager. I found that the one from the XFCE project called thunar works for me and can be run inside of either Gnome, KDE or ...

I have found the solution to both problems! To not append a space, use the nospace option. This can be done in two ways: Pass it to the complete: complete -o nospace -F _chromium chromium Use the compopt built-in: compopt -o nospace (to enable the option) compopt +o nospace (to disable the option) I found it in the Bash documentation at gnu.org, 8.7 ...
