Chromium 53 on Raspbian Jessie (updated)

chromium53.png

Hi guys.When I showed you how to install Chromium 53 on Raspbian Jessie in an older post, it lead to dependency errors. I COMPLETELY didn’t notice this. So here is the tutorial, tested with Raspbian Jessie October 2016 release.

THIS WILL ONLY WORK ON A PI 2 OR PI 3!

TESTED WITH RASPBIAN JESSIE OCTOBER 2016 RELEASE. MAY WORK ON OLDER VERSIONS BUT NOT GUARANTEED TO WORK. IF YOU ARE USING AN OLDER VERSION OF RASPBIAN AND HAVE ISSUES WITH THIS PLZ COMMENT TO TELL ME YOUR ISSUE. I WILL TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO FIX IT AND REPLY BACK TO YOUR COMMENT.

First, start up your Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 and open up the terminal. Then type:

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_53.0.2785.143-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1142_armhf.deb

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-browser-l10n_53.0.2785.143-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1142_all.deb

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-browser_53.0.2785.143-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1142_armhf.deb

sudo dpkg -i chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_53.0.2785.143-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1142_armhf.deb

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/main/libg/libgcrypt11/libgcrypt11_1.5.0-3_armhf.deb

sudo dpkg -i libgcrypt11_1.5.0-3_armhf.deb

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/main/p/pciutils/libpci3_3.2.1-1ubuntu5.1_armhf.deb

sudo dpkg -i libpci3_3.2.1-1ubuntu5.1_armhf.deb

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/main/s/speech-dispatcher/libspeechd2_0.8.5-0ubuntu2_armhf.deb

sudo dpkg -i libspeechd2_0.8.5-0ubuntu2_armhf.deb

sudo dpkg -i chromium-browser-l10n_53.0.2785.143-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1142_all.deb chromium-browser_53.0.2785.143-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1142_armhf.deb

rm -R .cache/chromium

rm -R .config/chromium

sudo mv /usr/bin/x-www-browser /usr/bin/x-www-browser.bak

sudo mv /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser.bak

sudo cp /usr/bin/chromium-browser /usr/bin/x-www-browser

sudo cp /usr/bin/chromium-browser /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser

Launch Chromium using Menu/Applications/Internet/Chromium Web Browser

Enjoy!

    • Hi. A Firefox Fan, I guess? Well, this guide was for Chromium 53, but I see that apt-get gives you Firefox 45, but the latest version is 49. I will try to write up a tutorial about installing the latest Firefox on Raspbian Jessie soon!

      Cheers!

      PS: What issue are you having when installing Chromium? Or do you just prefer Firefox?

      • thanks for the heads up 🙂

        The version of PIXEL I got came with Chromium, so no issues 😛 though last time I remember having to use a x86 emulator terminal (Exagear) and apt-get that version, as I had issues installing the ARM version (had just given up lol, was using Synaptic iirc.)

        and yeah, I’m a diehard Firefox fan and have a ‘version 6’ t-shirt floating around the house somewhere lol

      • Hi. The Chromium included on Raspbian is v51, which is out of date. Google have only just released Chrome 54. My how to install Chromium 53 on Raspbian Jessie (updated) guide is one of the best guides out there.

        I love Firefox as well. On Debian (including Raspbian) Firefox used to be known as IceWeasel because of boring copyright issues, but now Firefox is back in Debian with name and logo.

        If you LOVE Firefox to pieces, then get a new SD Card and look at ubuntu-mate.org. Ubuntu MATE comes with Firefox pre-installed. Don’t know which version it is though! Because I haven’t tried Ubuntu MATE before but I know Firefox is pre-installed.

        Cheers!

      • Hi. Debian (which is what Raspbian is based on) stopped supporting Chromium for ARM. A ChromiumOS dev called Hexxeh made a Chromium v22 for Raspberry Pi but it was no longer updated anymore 😦 so you would have to of used a x86 emulator. But then Chromium for ARM Ubuntu was discovered. WOW! So now you don’t have to use a x86 emulator anymore.

        Cheers!

    Thanks for the post,
    however, i hat to download 16.04.1.1257, since your version is not available (any more?)

    Therefore, I got the following dependency problems:
    libdbus is 1.8.20 (=>1.9.14)
    libfontconfig 2.11.0 (=> 2.11.94)
    libpic3 1:3.2.1 (>= 1:3.3.1)
    libstdc++6 4.9.2 (>= 5.2)

    will this be updated?
