Well its been a while since a wrote a howto for you guys and just stumbled across this which I am very excited about. We all know about google’s browser chrome, it is fast and sleek, and now is pretty much ready for beta, I have no problems whatsoever with Chromium any longer. I am now using it as my default browser in Ubuntu Jaunty! Here is the quickest way possible to install chromium and get it up and running with flash.

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add these two Lines:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

Between replace jaunty with intrepid if your still using that.

Now add the GPG Key:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5
sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Now once installed Go to Applications->Internet->Chromium Browser and right click it, add to panel
Right click the new chromium icon and add the following where it says command:

chromium-browser --enable-plugins

Note: You’ll of course need flash installed for firefox first, to install that:

sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

Now lets install flash before we launch this baby:

sudo cp /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins/flashplugin.so

Please enjoy flash with chromium with Angkor Wat History in youtube first.
