✔ NOTE: If the md5sums don't match, don't post the makepkg output. Simply flag the package.

You can check for new Linux releases in:, or use:
$ curl -s | gzip -df | awk -F\" '/pkgid/{ sub(".*-","",$4); print $4": "$10 }'

✔ OBS: 32-bit support for Google Chrome Stable Channel has been dropped as well. Either upgrade to 64-bit, or stick to [extra]/chromium, which will continue to be updated:

Please add fakeroot as dependency.

Please add libunity as optional dependency. It is required to show a progress when downloading files with KDE. Since Plasma 5.6 the unity launcher API is supported and thus works with KDE.

You should add xdg-utils to deps like chromium.

I dunno? Rename your settings dirs (~/.cache/google-chrome/, ~/.config/google-chrome/), start in incognito, swap between the /usr/bin launcher and the one from /opt/google/chrome/ directly, extract the .deb and put the extension there, or try copying *all* the contents to /opt/google/chrome/, use "--enable-logging --v=1" (, etc.

@Det - yeah, it does work on other distro's like this. I dropped it in on a fresh Ubuntu with fresh Google Chrome installed, into /opt/google/chrome/extensions, and as soon as I opened up Chrome it appeared :( Went through that FAQ, and still in the same position. Any other ideas as to what may be going on, or how I can dig deeper to see where Chrome may be looking?

Det commented on 2017-03-31 07:03

Easy way to check is for example to put an "exit" on line 51 and go to the pkg/opt/google/chrome/cron/ directory yourself (or Ctrl+C anytime after extraction and before that line):

It basically seems to create and re-enable the Chrome repo for Debian/Ubuntu, which we don't need, since we don't have APT.

Please excuse my noob question, but I'm trying to understand all these PKGBUILD files that I'm supposed to audit before letting them loose on my system. ;) What is the purpose of the Debian Cron jobs that Google has in their deb, and why are they removed in the PKGBUILD file?
