Hi, can see two entries for chrome in task manager when I run chrome, but there is no sign of the program working, 0%cpu, etc. The get-install procedure worked without error and the applications menu is properly updated. What can be happening? Thanks, john
chrome installed but not visible in full install cooking 4.0(15 posts) (3 voices)
To terminate useless Chrome instances type in terminal:
Run Chrome in terminal to see possible errors that prevents Chrome to start properly:
You must also make sure CUPS is running. You should also make sure
cupsdis run at boot by going to http://tazpanel:82/index.cgi?file=/etc/rcS.conf and by adding
cupsdto RUN_DAEMONS. You can also manage the daemons from http://tazpanel:82/boot.cgi?daemons (Both are SliTaz Panel links)
Thanks very much for the suggestions. Running chrome in terminal generates no error messages. The program starts but shows up nowhere but on the task manager. Nor can I get cups-pam to function after managing the daemon from the SliTaz panel. I haven't changed rcS.conf. Will try that next. But cups seems to do the same as chrome, nothing shows up. No reaction to manage printing from the menu.
Cups does work on this laptop with Arch Linux and with various Puppies. john
Thanks Aleksej! Cups is fine on localhost:631. Now, how can I track down the non-show of chrome? Any suggestions? john
Please, tell me how you get your Chrome. (Maybe it have modern dependencies like gtk+3?)
Hi, I used get-install get-google-chrome, and then executed the script. Chrome downloaded and installed with no error messages. I'm using cooking 4.0. This is the second or third time I've tried this with the same result. When I execute the program it just hangs with no error messages. Must be something stupid I've done. Thanks, john
Maybe it's because cooking 'get-google-chrome' package use unstable version of Chrome.
1. Uninstall your unstable 'google-chrome' package.
2. Open as root file /usr/bin/get-google-chrome in text editor.
3. Change line
4. Run 'get-google-chrome' again to get stable Chrome.
5. Start your Chrome.
6. Post here about your experience.
Aleksej, thanks for your patience with this challenge. I followed your instructions and installed the stable version of chrome. Once again, the program hung up. BUT, this time I thought about the two instances of chrome shown in the task manager. I think the problem involves having puppy use the same partition on which SliTaz is installed. Even though I run puppy from a live CD, I think it is leaving its version of chrome invisibly behind. Puppy does some kind of file system layering which I've never understood and don't really trust (although Puppy does a good job in general). The two chrome tasks are of slightly different sizes in mb, too, indicating that they are two different versions of chrome.
I will try to uninstall Chrome from Puppy and test this idea. When I uninstalled the unstable chrome from SliTaz and then tried to run google-chrome, it did not find the Puppy version; it ran nothing. So the only sure way to tell, I guess, is to get it off the Puppy system. Will post if/when I get a solution. Thanks again, john
John, are you have both SliTaz full install and Puppy full install within one partition? 0.o
If your Puppy is frugal (as default) then Puppy utilizes only 2 files in the guest filesystem, and Puppy filesystem not interfere with guest filesystem (SliTaz).
Aleksej, when you run chrome, do you see two tasks named chrome? I get two tasks with different pids and slightly different mb sizes. Maybe this is normal? And I'm looking in the wrong place for the problem. john
P.S. did you get my reply through gmail saying that Puppy is not fully and not frugally installed? It runs only from the CD, but it saves some files in the SliTaz partition to speed up loading. john
update: just installed iron and it works fine, still no chrome, runs but just hangs. I think cups may be causing it. I'm travelling in Thailand and don't have a printer with me to check out cups. I can reach the localhost:631, but there are some error messages that might indicate a problem setting up cups.
I'm going to put this problem on hold for awhile. I think I should probably use iron instead of chrome anyway.
Thanks again for your help. john
Oh, I have no printer, and you want to enforce me to use Chrome ;)
I can't help with it. Btw I happy with default Midori ^.^
