I tried installing 64 bit Ubuntu MATE 18.04 on RPi3B+ but there was no package available for it in Software Boutique. Is there no 64 bit version of Chromium for 64 bit Ubuntu MATE 18.04?

    The Software Boutique was never intended to have all software packages, it was created as a store for selected packages wanted by most users for that system, maybe they didn't consider browsers as key for pi's (which is commonly seen as more of an appliance device?)

Software boutique only contains a handfull of software chosen by the ubuntu mate developers because of how well those applications integrate in the mate desktop environment. If you want a graphical way to install all applications I suggest installing gnome software.


You can install chromium in 64 bit Ubuntu MATE by using following commands :

sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
  • The 64-bit version can be downloaded using this link. wget dl.google.com/linux/direct/… Google Chrome no longer supports 32-bit. After downloading it, run the commands below to install it. sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb; sudo apt-get -f install

    @ Mehta 1. 64-bit amd64 is not the same as arm64 (Raspberry case). 2. Modern apt/apt-get allows to install deb-files directly with sudo apt install ./file.deb, so there is no need to fix dependencies with sudo apt-get -f install .
