    Everything works great, except I’m having problems applying a Theme… Anyone else out there with this problem? I’m using Ubuntu 9.10.

  2. Chris says:

    Everything works great for me too; including the themes. I’m just not sure I can part with my chromium browser (with synching bookmarks).

    What is the difference between Google Chrome and Chromium (except for the first one to be official package from google)?

    I’ve had the developer (unstable ) version for awhile now and am quite happy with it. I tried installing this beta version and get the following error.

    Error: Conflicts with the installed package ‘google-chrome-unstable’

    Obviously the easy solution
    is to uninstall the developer version but I’m not quite ready to do that untill I see more feedback on the BETA version.

    Little bit more regarding my theme issue… If I run Chrome from the command line with sudo, themes install fine. If I use the launcher that showed up in the application menu, I cannot install themes. I am just able to download a .crx file. And unfortunately, when I apply a theme in sudo mode it is no longer there when I open Chrome back up in regular mode…

    java does not seem to work for me…

  9. Joe says:

    Works phenomenally fast. Open Chrome, then close it. Then open Firefox, it seems like an eternity.

    Java works fine for me. The themes are a little weird, they apply and work; however, there really isn’t an option to toggle between them. (Mint 7 / Jaunty 32bit)

    To fix the issue where extensions prompt to download the *.crx file instead of installing the extension, clear your cookies.

  11. Thanks for sharing the news.

    Isn’t gears suppose to be native on google chrome? I installed chrome cause I was expectong this feature (which is not present in chromium either). I really think that enable offline gmail and calendar could be of great value for the browse.

    can’t see any flash video, with this message : “The following plug-in was blacoked : /opt/google/chrome/plugins/” (copied from the mozilla plugin directory with the same result). Any idea? Thanks

  14. karlzt says:

    Now I have Chromium and Google Chrome at the same time and they both work great 🙂

  15. Arup Roy Chowdhury says:

    Only Sun Java works, Open JDK is not recognized by Chrome.

  16. Jesse says:

    If anyone was having the same Theme issue as me, I figured out what was wrong… (I believe it would probably apply to extensions as well)

    I needed to give myself permissions to the ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Extensions folder.

    Now all works perfectly. Chrome is great!

  17. 1916home says:

    No Java working for me here. Well… it sort of works. Some websites say it works, but does not work. Pogo works fine if using Chrome on XP, but not linux.

    I also cannot get youtube flash movies to work either. I have the latest flash 10 installed, but Chrome says its using flash 9. Why??? I cant fix it. Im using the Youtube HTML5-ifier Chrome extension for now to watch youtube videos.

    Running 9.10 Karmic.

    If you want flash support for the new chrome beta there are a couple steps.
    1) Know your system Arch. 32bit or 64bit
    2) Download the right pluggin from adobe 32bit or 64bit( if you chose the wrong one flash will not work)
    3) Create folder in /opt/google/chrome/ called plugins
    4) Drop the 32bit or 64bit pluging in the new folder you created /opt/google/chrome/plugins
    5) Restart Chrome and enjoy flash, there is nothing else you need to do to get flash enabled.
