Whatcha playing with source for???
http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?ke...romium-browser
It looks likes it's available through your package manager.

May I ask why you didn't install the browser from the Ubuntu repositories? I would have just typed:
Code:

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

i'm confused is this for a windows install ? if so i think you downloaded the wrong file. i think you download a windows exe file and run it from there.

if this is for ubuntu you go into software center in the menus and search for it and click install.

you only need source code if you plan on modifying it or adding functionality or making a fork of it...

i tried this , but received a error message like it couldn't connect to the IP(security.ubuntu.com-something like this)

You should probably try to correct that, since it means that your package management system is broken. Can you connect to the internet with the machine at all? If so then please give the exact error including the URL it says it is unable to connect to.

monojeffrey 02-27-2013 01:03 PM

no its for ubuntu only

i tried this link
http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/i38...owser/download
navigating to the page , i downloaded a file by clicking on the link found at the bottom of the page

security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu

a file is being downloaded
after completion

what i should do next(i think its a package)

You should install it with the command I gave from the repositories because that will ensure that dependencies are met. If you post the error that you received when you tried to run the command I gave you then we can help you to repair whatever is broken.

i tried to install the deb extension package which was downloaded from the link security.ubuntu.com (as mentioned above)
the package is not getting installed properly
output is attached as snapshot


also tried the command sudo apt-get install chromium-browser , with internet connection
it also ended up in error
the snapshot is attached

schneidz 02-28-2013 09:00 AM

i am not certain but maybe these commands may help get beyond the problem:
Code:

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

also, i would copy-and-paste text rather than upload a picture.
