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 ...

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 ~/Download/google-chrome-...

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. ...

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 ...

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.

Clarification : This .exe file you downloaded is an installation file for Windows operating systems. You can install Google Chrome in Ubuntu this way, open a terminal and execute these commands: echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list wget -q -O - https://dl.google.com/linux/...

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).

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

Yes, it does use the Linux kernel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Chrome_OS Since the kernel is arguably all that can strictly be called "Linux", the complete OS that we all know and love is more properly called "GNU/Linux". The "GNU" part provides the fundamentals of the userspace (as opposed to kernelspace) and without that, there is no guarantee ...

Those are NSS built-in certificates. They are provided through a shared library: /usr/lib/libnssckbi.so (path may be different on your system). That's where Chrome gets them from. You could list them with certutil like this: Make a link to the library in ~/.pki/nssdb: ln -s /usr/lib/libnssckbi.so ~/.pki/nssdb Then run: certutil -L -d sql:$HOME/.pki/...

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

The preferred way to do this is to use apt pinning. It allows you to install a single package from testing/unstable, without migrating the whole system to testing/unstable. Caution: this will bring also package dependencies to testing. Pay attention at what are you doing. A complete guide to pinning is here: http://wiki.debian.org/it/AptPreferences What you ...

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.

Ctrl+W is the shortcut to close the current document or tab in many applications. I don't know where it originated (at a guess, Mac), but it's become a standard in most major environments, including Gnome, KDE, OSX and Microsoft Office. Mnemonic: W is next to Q on QWERTY keyboards; Ctrl+Q is for quit, and Ctrl+W is for a lesser form of quitting. Some ...

When you close a GNOME Terminal window, a SIGHUP is sent to the shell that it was running. The shell will typically send a SIGHUP to every process group that it knows it created - even ones started with nohup - and then exit. If the shell is bash, it will skip sending a SIGHUP to any process group that the user marked with disown. Running a command with ...

Because chrome is not open source. Ubuntu (as most other Linux distributions) come with chromium instead, which is the open source project that chrome is based on. Because chrome isn't open and re-distributable, it can include some things that aren't really free but typically aren't hard to get (if you want them), I've read that in ubuntu (I use Debian) you ...

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.
