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.

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!

Can't find how to INSTALL Chromium.... so I am here in a post that asks how to REinstall it.

Question is: do I want it or not? I have a lot of folders on the taskbar where it's running just fine in Raspberry Pi.

So - the question is still: Do I want Chromium and HOW can I install it in Linux Lite if it's safe?

Here's the results of a terminal request:

Code: [Select]

[sudo] password for linuxlite:
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
Package chromium is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  chromium-bsu:i386 chromium-bsu

E: Package 'chromium' has no installation candidate

Is Chromium dead and not available any more?

@No More Bears  In the future open a new thread, this one is 2 years old and it's marked as solved. This might get usres confused.
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

I was hesitant to open a new question on the same subject. Sorry for exhuming a zombie.
