Chromium


Chromium 61.0.3163.79 downloaded and "installed", but I can't get it to run. It was my default browser. This is a first...!

TIA for tips

which version of Slackware are you running? it's fully updated?

try launching it from a terminal and watch the output.

Thanks, ponce!

Slackpkg fixed it. That's a new one for me.... I'll try to remember: first things first.

Thanks for the updated package, Eric! Chromium 61 is running well here on my 14.2 box. I've moved back to Chromium.
