I am trying to trick Chromium to think time passes faster than it really does.
One user suggested I use
libfaketime. It works, almost.
Specifying time shift works fine:
faketime -f '+1y' chromium-browser
In this case Chromium thinks it's running 1 year in the future.
If I try to speed up the clock:
faketime -f '+0 x2' chromium-browser
Chromium's UI freezes in 1 second.
Other graphical apps do the same thing, like lxpanel. But console binaries seem to be just fine going a tenth of realtime:
faketime -f '+0 x0.1' sleep 1
The above command takes 10 seconds to execute.
Is there anything I can do to make graphical applications work in slo-mo or fast-forward using
