When reporting this package as outdated make sure there is indeed a new version for Linux Desktop. You can have a look at the "Stable updates" tag in Release blog for this.

You can also run this command to obtain the version string for the latest chrome version:

$ curl -sSf | \
     grep -A1 "Package: google-chrome-stable" | \
     awk '/Version/{print $2}' | \
     cut -d '-' -f1

Do not report updates for ChromeOS, Android or other platforms stable versions as updates here.

Flags in chrome-flags.conf with quotes (--user-agent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0b; Windows NT 5.1)") are not applied correctly. Instead, multiple tabs are opened ("(compatible;", "msie", "6.0b;", "windows", ...).

Suggestions for dependency updates:

  • kwallet should be kwallet5 for now
  • Add plasma-browser-integration as optional for integration with KDE
  • Is kdialog still required for KDE file dialogs? At least it's not the case for KDE Wayland session (which uses portal)

Outdated now. I have built new one. Here is the PKGBUILD

117.0.5938.132-1 seems to have problems with mesa 23.2.1-1 (works fine with 23.1.8-1), on Intel irix graphics. Sample log, with repeated messages removed:

[5967:10:1004/] ContextResult::kTransientFailure: Failed to send GpuControl.CreateCommandBuffer.
[5769:5769:1004/] GPU process exited unexpectedly: exit_code=139

void main() {
    gl_Position = vec4(position, 0.0, 1.0);
        vTransformedCoords_4_S0 = (umatrix_S1_c0_c0 * vec3(localCoord, 1.0)).xy;
    gl_Position = vec4(gl_Position.xy * sk_RTAdjust.xz + gl_Position.ww * sk_RTAdjust.yw, 0.0, gl_Position.w);

Apologies if this isn't the right place to report this; at the moment in the middle of a large project and can't determine whether chrome or mesa is at fault.

It might be a good idea to add NetworkManager and BlueZ as optional dependencies, as Chrom(e/ium) use their DBus APIs for geolocation and Bluetooth support respectively.

It seems that Google now has the correct latest version again, so presumably it was a temporary 'glitch'. Anyway this aur package is fine, and all seems well again.

gromit commented on 2023-09-15 19:40 (UTC)

@mike.cloaked The described method is still accurately describing this packages upstream. Strangely it seems like google has downgraded the version in the apt repo ... As I found no announcement nor complaints about major bugs or CVE's I just kept this package it as is, but if someone knows whats up please let me know! :)

mike.cloaked commented on 2023-09-15 18:51 (UTC) (edited on 2023-09-15 18:53 (UTC) by mike.cloaked)

Is there any other alternative way to query the current latest version direct from Google?
