Thread: Google chrome question!

  1. #1

    Default Google chrome question!

    I installed Google Chrome beta downloaded from google.com.

    1: How do I get the flash working? I have flash plugin for firefox installed, and working in other browsers that use nspluginviewer.

    2: How do I get the default RSS reader to be Akregator in Chrome? Now, whenever I click on the rss-subscribe link, I go to a feedburner page that asked me to subscribe using several services, _OTHER THAN_ Akregator.

    Well, it was working fine with Chromium

    I'm also looking for a workaround and will post as soon as I find a solution

    Huh? It's been there on the openSUSE build since
    BenderBendingRodriguez started to package the 64bit version.

    The one from the contrib has flash (softlinks to your standard browser
    plugins), else you can make a link to the plugins directory to the
    installed flash.

    You can also just copy libflashplayer.so into the google plugins
    directory.

    That's it!

    Code:
    # cd /opt/google/chrome
    # mkdir plugins
    # ln -s /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so /opt/google/chrome/plugins/libflashplayer.so

    Well, actually this is simpler, cleaner solution :
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/lib/browser-plugins /opt/google/chrome/plugins

    Hi
    You might also what to check how it starts as well. In the chromium
    version there is a start script, not sure for googles own version?
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    /opt/google/chromium-browser/chrome --enable-plugins \
    --enable-greasemonkey --enable-user-scripts --enable-extensions
    I run a separate one for user agent switching as well.

    yup, apparently you need to --enable-plugin to get flash to work.

    Now, if I can get RSS reader to work as well...

    So do I copy & paste that code in the terminal? I'm new to linux, I've experimented with Ubuntu but I like Opensuse a lot better.

    I enter that code in the terminal and I get a permission denied.

    Is there a way where I can have no restrictions period? I'm the only user on this computer, so I thought that made me the Administrator? All privileges? No? haha!

    Any information would be great.

    Thanks

    A very simple solution to all the problems as malcolmlewis described already.

    For me, i will not install the beta version, just stick to contrib repo build. which have everything.

    Add contrib repo from community repos in software repositories in YaST. Then goto software management and install chromium from there, it will take care of the dependencies.
    OR here is the contrib repo to add:

    Index of /repositories/openSUSE:/11.2:/Contrib/standard

    Good luck.
