I want to install Chromium 72.0.3626.121. What is the procedure?
https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/docs/linux/build_instructions.md provides the procedure.
depot_tools by cloning the
git clone https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/tools/depot_tools.git
depot_tools to the end of your PATH (you will probably want to put this in your
~/.zshrc). Assuming you cloned
depot_tools to your home directory do not use
~ on PATH, otherwise gclient runhooks will fail to run. Rather, you should use either $HOME or the absolute path:
Get the code for 72.0.3626.121 with
mkdir ~/chromium && cd ~/chromium && fetch --nohooks --no-history chromium
install additional build dependencies with
run the hooks with
set up the build with
gn gen out/Default
paying attention to modifications for faster builds if you wish, then build Chromium with
autoninja -C out/Default chrome
Just follow along
https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+archive/72.0.3626.121.tar.gzthis is the source file that you want
Configure it after you go through the INSTALL / README - each source is very different. This will tell you how ready your system is with configuration, dependencies and libraries
If you get an error youre in luck - you know exactly the dep/lib missing. Get after figuring this dependency/library - start a new google search adn figure how to install it. One of the easiest configurations and installs from source is the CMAKE program - you will probably never fail in installing from source.
Once config is done - you only need to make. Make is a command so just use
./makefileshould be used with an executable file. Id follow what the README says
You can use checkinstall if you want to manage your package with a package manager. I would.
