• Bundled chromium


    I am currently evaluating different linux distros which I will install in order to learn linux. I already have an ubuntu install and would also like something a little different and perhaps more challenging. I like antergos but was dismayed to see the evil google logo when I ran the browser on the live disk. Is there away to install antergos without the bundled chromium? I want firefox, or similar. I realise that I can install FF afterwards, and I also realise that chromium is the open source version of chrome. But the entire idea of me learning linux is to get away from tracking-ware like google, MS etc. I dont want to install anything that has even a hint of either of the above evil duo.
    Thanks and regards…

    Yes, there is. During installation, remove the check mark from Chromium, and place the check mark for Firefox. Chromium will not be installed. Firefox will be installed.

    …and I also realise that chromium is the open source version of chrome.

    Actually, the situation is directly opposed. Chrome is the Google-branded version of Chromium. Chrome uses Chromium’s code. Chrome is based on Chroimium, not vice versa.

  • Awesome thanks for your help, and for the correction. Antergos it is so, at least for this iteration.

  • So… is this solved?:slight_smile:

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it
