You can get prebuilt binaries here:

Please do NOT flag this package as out of date in relation to official chromium releases.

This is NOT Google Chromium and new releases come after additional work of the ungoogled-chromium contributors, so they may not be ready, nor available for days or even weeks after a new version of official chromium is released.

Please refer to for ungoogled-chromium releases. Use those and please flag this package as out of date only if a newer release is present there. I will update the PKGBUILD as soon as I can every time a new release comes out.

Alright, in the end people will have to edit something the PKGBUILD anyway. I'll add that variable on next release to avoid a rebuild for everyone.

Using $MAKEFLAGS for ninja is not a good idea because it does not have the same flags as make and even those that look the same may behave differently (e.g. ninja's -k takes an argument, whereas make's doesn't). Anybody who has something else than -j or -l in $MAKEFLAGS will complain. See my comment from 2019-04-28 12:17.

Huh, interesting. Well, I could just pass the MAKEFLAGS variable to ninja, assuming it only contains the j flag.

lahwaacz commented on 2020-11-27 23:38

ninja understands -j just like make, but ninja does not use $MAKEFLAGS. Also, ninja uses the number of logical CPUs available on the system as the maximum number of parallel jobs by default, so there is no point in specifying -j $(nproc). But, in case of Chromium, the high number of parallel jobs is exactly what is causing issues for people who don't have enough RAM. As I said several times here, they should try to lower the maximum number of parallel jobs to avoid mysterious errors as well as a slow(er) build with enabled swap.

Note that unlike ninja, make uses -j 1 by default. While ninja does not have anything like $MAKEFLAGS, but some packages like llvm-git introduce a similar variable to make things configurable:

There is also some discussion about it in the comments, see 2019-04-28 14:08 and before.

Really? I thought ninja recognized that flag. Oh well, the more you know. I could add a -j flag to ninja, but that won't always be the best value for every computer, -j $(nproc) I think would be a good value.

@JstKddng MAKEFLAGS affect GNU make, not ninja. They can modify the PKGBUILD to pass -j whatever directly to ninja.

If you want to change default behaviour modify the /etc/makepkg.conf file and modify the MAKEFLAGS flag to this: MAKEFLAGS="-j9"

Replace 9 by the number of threads on your system + 1. That should work with all packages you update with yay- Syu.

@lahwaacz @boomerdango

Good to know the flags work. Thanks for the feedback.

lahwaacz commented on 2020-11-27 17:50

@boomerdango Thanks, I can confirm those flags work with ungoogled-chromium under Sway.

bkb commented on 2020-11-27 15:55

The question was about checking default execution, not forcing it

boomerdango commented on 2020-11-27 15:52

@lahwaacz It works natively if you launch it with --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland, or put those flags in your ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf.
