• Chromium is broken.


    @developers as this is installed by default on every Antergos installation…
    Older ones are not effected

  • I confirm the bug and thanks for the instructions.

  • entry inside chromium-flags.conf must be this:

    --user-data-dir=/.config/chromium/Default --homepage=http://antergos.com
    

    what i wrote before is working but wrong as it creates a folder called ~ inside your home…
    (–user-data-dir=~/.config/chromium/Default --homepage=http://antergos.com)

    I’m using latest chromium now as we write and speak. No problems so far.

    Hi!
    It’s working fine here too with system fully up to date.

    it seem to work … can someone proof?
    when i remove this “Antergos” file from rm ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf

    Yes it worked for me.

  • @joekamprad

    Also working for me after removing chromium-flags.conf

  • @sothis6881 Is this file important? Looks like it’s just telling chromium to use that homepage but maybe I’m wrong? I’ve renamed it for now and chromium seems to be working.

  • @joekamprad said in Chromium is broken.:

    chromium-flags.conf

    I just reinstalled my Antergos again, with everything updated to latest from the start. I haven’t been able to launch Chromium with any of the editing changes suggested to chromium-flags.conf. The only thing that worked is when I renamed that config file to “chromium-flags.conf.backup”.

    I have then tweaked my system for an hour and backed everything with clonezilla to my external USB in less than 6 mins.

  • I can confirm now that chromium problem is definitely fixed on new fresh Antergos installations. Just tested a few minutes ago and there is now no chromium *.conf file in ~/.config/chromium folder (default installation).

  • That’s how community based bugtracking work:

    1. user post the issue
    2. confirmation that multiple users are effected
    3. user/mod report the BUG: https://github.com/Antergos/Cnchi/issues/870
    4. issue solved by @developers
  • Hi everyone,

    First time user of Antergos, (loving the community BTW) found this thread because I just did an update to Chromium, the OS and about 100 other things at the same time, resulting in the same failure to open Chromium issue. I dont remember what I upgraded from, but I installed fresh about, eh, a month ago or so. Current version attached in Screenshot.

    This post is just to confirm that by moving the chromium-flags.conf file from ~ to my desktop solved the issue for me.

    Thanks to everyone for the help, and for showing me how to downgrade an app should I ever need to in the future ;)

  • @agentmike welcome aboard!

  • @joekamprad it worked! thanks!

  • As the conflicting file is not needed and also have no function at all please remove it, it will not be installed in any future releases:

    rm ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf
    
  • This worked for me. Thank you.

  • @listening yeah it worked for me too!!! thank you!!!
