Chromium Dev branch

PPA description

This PPA contains the latest Chromium Dev builds, with hardware video decoding enabled.

NOTE: Some Chromium features, including Sync, require an API key, which is not included with the packages below. To use these features, please follow the 11 steps at Then, open .profile located in your home folder (you will need to see hidden files), and add the following three lines to the end of the file (on a new line):

export GOOGLE_API_KEY="api_key"
export GOOGLE_DEFAULT_CLIENT_ID="client_id"
export GOOGLE_DEFAULT_CLIENT_SECRET="client_secret"

Replace what is in the quotes (after the '=' sign in each line) with the appropriate value. You will need to log off and log back on (or restart if you prefer) for Chromium to use the keys.

If you need help with installing Chromium or notice stuff not working that should normally work, click on my name below in the "Adding this PPA to your system" section.

NOTE: Chromium Aura drops support for NPAPI plugins. This means that you cannot use the standard Flash (Flash 11.2) available through the main repo. Instead, if you are using Trusty or Utopic, you can just install pepperflashplugin-nonfree. If you are using Precise, you can get Pepper Flash (Flash 13.0) through the Pepper Flash installer PPA (
