I tried to install ungoogled-chromium from download page but I couldn't manage to install any package, and since I am not sure how it works, so I would like to have an instruction of how to install this.

Every time I use dpkg -i to install downloaded packages it just tells me dependencies are missing.

For example, this package is considered the "official" package:

sudo dpkg -i ungoogled-chromium_69.0.3497.100-1.bionic_amd64.deb

Selecting previously unselected package ungoogled-chromium.

Other packages also have similar problems, those I downloaded are:

  • Add the full output of dpkg -i please. – vidarlo Jun 18 '19 at 9:57
  • Please see the original post added with the log. Thanks! – Negrito Jun 18 '19 at 11:40

From inside the folder containing the chromium-ungoogled .debs type:

sudo apt-get install libminizip1 libre2-4 ungoogled-chromium*.deb

Note: make sure all of the chromium-ungoogled .deb files are there, including the common one.

  • It doesn' work... these libraries can not be found in apt – Negrito Jun 19 '19 at 7:47

    Hey, update, I got it by doing sudo dpkg -i ./* and then sudo apt -fix--broken install. Thanks anyway. – Negrito Jun 19 '19 at 7:52
