Chromium 53 on Raspberry Pi 3

THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET CHROMIUM 53 ON JESSIE!

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

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON 16TH OCTOBER 2016 BUT LEAD TO DEPENDENCY ERRORS. I HAVE UPDATED THE COMMANDS TO AVOID DEPENDENCY ERRORS. CHEERS!

Open up the terminal and 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

 

IF YOU GET ANY DEPENDENCY ERRORS PLEASE COMMENT. 

CHROMIUM DOESN’T HAVE AN AUTO UPDATE FEATURE LIKE GOOGLE CHROME DOES. AS SOON AS CHROMIUM 54 IS RELEASED I WILL POST INSTRUCTIONS OF HOW TO INSTALL IT.

IT WON’T WORK ON PI 1 AND PI 0 BECAUSE THIS CHROMIUM WAS COMPILED FOR UBUNTU AND UBUNTU NOT COMPATIBLE WITH PI 1 AND PI 0 BECAUSE PI 1 AND PI 0 ARE ARMv6 POWERED AND UBUNTU FOR ARM REQUIRES ARMv7 BASED PROCESSOR.

IF YOU WANT CHROMIUM ON ARMv6 PIs THEN INSTALL VERSION 51 (ALSO WORKS ON PI 2 AND PI 3) WITH THE FOLLOWING COMMAND:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Enjoy surfing the Internet!

  1. Sorry about this post. It led to dependency errors. I never noticed. Here is the updated version: https://coolchasgamer.wordpress.com/2016/10/26/chromium-53-on-raspbian-jessie-updated/

    Google have released Chrome 54: I am expecting to see a Chromium 54 in Ubuntu Repositories in the next few weeks. Once released, I will do a blog post telling you how to install Chromium 54 on Raspbian Jessie later on.

    … The Pi 1 and Pi 0 compatible Chromium is still stuck at 51
