THIS POST NOW OBSOLETE. LOOK AT  The installer for ARM Devices to get updates!

LATEST TUTORIAL FOR HOW TO INSTALL CHROMIUM 53. I RECOMMEND THIS TUTORIAL CURRENTLY.

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_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

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

Enjoy!

OLD TUTORIAL FOR v48 NOW CONSIDERED OUTDATED AND OBSOLETE. LOOK ABOVE FOR NEWER TUTORIALS. CHROMIUM 48 USERS SHOULD UPDATE NOW TO STAY SAFE.

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-browser-l10n_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_all.deb

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-browser_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_armhf.deb

wget http://ports.ubuntu.com/pool/universe/c/chromium-browser/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_armhf.deb

sudo dpkg -i chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_armhf.deb

sudo dpkg -i chromium-browser-l10n_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_all.deb chromium-browser_48.0.2564.82-0ubuntu0.15.04.1.1193_armhf.deb

Now launch Chromium by clicking on Menu, then Internet and then Chromium Web Browser

OLD AND UNSUPPORTED TUTORIAL FOR CHROMIUM 22 ON RASPBIAN WHEEZY. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

One thought on “How to install Chromium on Raspbian Jessie Raspberry Pi 2 and 3

  1. UPDATE: Chromium v51 is in the Raspbian Repositories. Install it with the following commands:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

    PS: The Raspberry Pi Foundation confirm it works on Pi1 and Pi0 as well.
