Chromium Nightly script
« on: March 01, 2010, 01:45:30 AM »
This script downloads the latest good build of chromium from the dev site's waterfall and creates an extension from it.

The chromium-browser-nightly.tcz built by the script conflicts with other chromium extensions in the repo.
Obviously depends on the squashfs tools.

The SSL bug appears to be resolved, and chromium extensions can be installed with the latest version.

EDIT2: Updated, includes symlink for flash

just put a symlink in root dir of chromium executable plugins/libflashplayer.so to /usr/local/share/flash10/libflashplayer.so

if that does not work try calling it with --enable-plugins

Hi althalus,

Thank you so much for posting this script. I had some difficulties with it as originally listed. My slightly modified version is below (working for me, although probably could be improved). Again, many thanks.

Also to get get flash you must do the following:
create /usr/local/chrome-linux/plugins/libflashplayer.so

libflashplayer.so is a symlink to "wherever you have flash on your system"

Hope this is of some help.

Best regards,

sci_fi

Updated my original post with a new script.

I swear to god I tried putting a plugins directory in the chrome-linux directory before I posted the script last night, but for whatever reason, it works now, so that's fine. The script now symlinks to the default place for putting flash in TC.

Fixed the chrome-wrapper symlink too - No bin directory was created, so the symlink was failing (plus the symlink was wrong anyway).

Glad it helped you sci_fi. I'm curious - why did you need to chmod the binaries to 777? They have the correct permissions upon extracting from the zip file.

Hi althalus,

In answer to your question. While I was fumbling around, I thought that I found that the binaries were coming out not executable. Seemed like manually changing them fixed things, so I added to the build script. Also, historically, I seem to frequently run into permission problems, so usually when I start changing permissions during my hacking sessions, I just turn everything on. Not needed here, as you point out.

Thanks yet again for the script. Nice to to have up to date Chrome running.

 Now if I could just get the streaming radio files to play. Right now, no matter what I do they download. I have hacked up versions of the vlc mozilla  plug-in in place but can't get chrome to use it.

Best regards,

sci_fi

When you get that working, post a little guide or some links for the rest of us, aye.

EDIT:
http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=37072
Granted, the bug was reported under Mac, not Linux, but it sounds general enough to affect more than just Mac.
