Debian and Ubuntu enforce SHA256 or higher entries in the Release and/or Packages files since March. Repositories missing these need to be fixed by their owners. There is an overview of broken repositories in the Debian wiki.

It's just a silly misunderstanding, caused by the hasty recognition of the development team of apt maintainers about SHA1 algorithm as obsolete. The problem is that it is directly embedded in the source code of APT, but if you're willing to spend an extra 1-2 hours on the self-assembly of the package, I can tell you how to solve this nuisance. So: sudo ...

Please note that we intend to shut off SHA1 completely on January 1, 2017. Google Chrome's repositories is half-broken since March 18th 2016. So it is issuing the warning. The problem with the Google source is on Google's end so apt-get is just reporting the issue as a warning. This issue does not stop you from upgrading packages. You can find the list of ...

I discovered that Chrome has changed to the Aura framework, and no longer uses GTK framework. A simple workaround is to launch Chrome with: google-chrome --high-dpi-support=1 --force-device-scale-factor=1.5

Unity uses Compiz as composing manager, and that has all sorts of plugins for this sort of stuff. To make it easy and long story short without messing in command line , install Compiz Config Settings Manager ( with sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager or via Software Center ) , and look for Place Windows , ensure it's checked Under that ...

I'm getting this same exact error "hash sum mismatch" on both Ubuntu 14.04 as well as Ubuntu 16.04, and only 16.04 complains about the encryption algorithm. The source of this problem seems to be twofold: apt deprecated sha1 recently, which explains the warnings we have been getting from the google repo since the latest LTS was released. Google was going ...

As mentioned here, Chrome has changed to the Aura framework, and no longer uses GTK framework. This causes however some peculiarities. As mentioned by Kalamalka Kid, who actually did practically all of the work, it can be worked around by running Chrome with the command: google-chrome --high-dpi-support=1 --force-device-scale-factor=<scale_factor> ...

1. Convert link files into launchers The solution below offers the option to right- click the link (.desktop file) and choose > "Execute", which will run Google-Chrome to open the link. By editing SpaceFm's settings, you can run the link by double-click as well (see notes [3]). Note that the solution automatically edits (only) new links on your desktop, ...

According to this discussion, launching Chrome with following flags fixes the problem (it did solve it for me too): --disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds --enable-native-gpu-memory-buffers

Even though Chrome is based on the Chromium they're still distinct and considerably different application. Their releases are not usually based on the same state of the common part of their code base. With that in mind I'm not sure if this is possible. It may work but it definitely wouldn't work reliably as the two applications may use different cache ...

There seems to be some bug in the fontconfig package (I reported the bug) which somehow let Chrome believe that "thin" is the correct weight to use. I removed the package and downloaded NotoSansCJK directly from Google, which contains fonts of different weights in separate files. After installing the fonts manually this issue seems to be fixed, and Chrome is ...

Not a problem to you. It is only a warning, and that is something that Google has to fix by upgrading their keys. More information can be found here. There has also been a bug filed. Feel free to star it to help push the bug along.

I would personally start by running chrome in the foreground with the debug option from a terminal window and tee-ing the output to a file. That way when it does crash you'll have a complete log that ends presumably with information related to the crash. There are a zillion chrome command-line options but I would start with ones like --enable-logging

Google has discontinued chrome for 32 bit machines running Ubuntu. If you go to the chrome download page and hit the download button you'll see that it only offers 64-bit options. A simple Google search will also pull up a bunch of articles about it--here's a couple I found: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/01/google-chrome-linux-32-bit-discontinued ...

The default fonts you're disatisfied with are those which are set within your browser, and overriding the system fonts may not be the best approach. If you are using Firefox there are font setting preferences, and if using Chromium you will need to install an extension. You can then preview and choose your preferred fonts in a more flexible way. To get the ...

The version of libstdc++6 in Ubuntu 12.04 is 4.6.3. In order to get version at least 4.8.0, you will need to upgrade to at least 14.04, which has version 4.8.4. Since libstdc++6 is an essential system package, trying to install the 14.04 version manually, or to upgrade it by some other "hacky" method, will probably result in a broken system.

There has been an update on the chrome-gnome-shell site which may have resolved the issue: https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GnomeShellIntegrationForChrome/Installation This was what I first tried unsuccessfully because the ne0sight repository was sending a 404 "Page not found" reply. This time it worked so my fingers are crossed that I will not see the ...

The “Noto Sans CJK" font is over 100MB, it is a complete fonts with all weights and all characters in CJK. Any way, there is something wrong there. My work-around is: In chromium settings -> customize fonts, change "standard font" to use "Noto Sans CJK", like me use "Noto Sans CJK SC"; I think maybe for Chrome, it is the same. You can refer to this qustion ...
