Not in Lite Software??  That's weird.  There is another way though.  You can open a terminal and type

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install chromium
(enter root password when asked)

Or you can go Menu -> System -> Install/Remove/Upgrade Packages.  Enter root password, click on RELOAD, then scroll down to find Chromium, and click on it to Mark for Installation, then click Apply.

Terminal is a lot easier

Hi, unfortunately that does not work. Chromium has broken packages which I can't remove them so I don't even have an option to reinstall and remove also does not work. Do you think I should download another install of chromium? If so how do I do that?

My regards
Ann

Oh wow... what error message are you getting?

Synaptic Package Manager (menu ->system ->Install/Remove/Upgrade) has some options in the menu to fix broken packages!  Try that, and/or find Chromium on the list, right-click it and select completely remove.  Apply.  Then re-install.

Wow indeed - I can't get it to remove Here is the read out I get
E: chromium-browser: package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should  reinstall it before attempting a removal
E: python-enchant: unable to securely remove '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pyenchant-1.6.6.egg-info/PKG-INFO': Not a directory

Hi Acdane,

I did not find the exact command I mentionned in your other thread but you could try these from Terminal.
First try this : sudo apt-get -f install

If doesnt work, try the following.
But, if python is a dependency to other modules, it could break other apps... I guess.

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq chromium-browser
or even
sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq --force-depends chromum-browser

then you can retry and fix installs with sudo apt-get -f install
---
After that, try to reinstall Chromium from the Lite Software module.

Cheers!
