I am running now Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin but i still have today problem with this sources for chromium. Anyone have the Daily-Dev apt sources for chromium?

Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromiumdaily/dev/ubuntu/dists/precise/main/source/Sources


Following up on @SirCharlo's comment. It seems that of the four chromium channels the only ones with a Precise Pangolin build as of this writing are the Stable and Beta ones.

So you can remove the ppa you already added as using the rm above.

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*chromium*

Alternately, you can use ppa-purge or the Y PPA Manager gui, double clicking on "Remove a PPA."

Then install one of the available channel's builds. So to get the one from beta:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/beta
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

I guess this will do until the Precise builds are available for more bleeding edge dev/daily channels again. At least there's no "failed to fetch" error and it gets updated periodically.


Alternative Chromium PPA

The PPAs above are not being updated at all. Alex Shkop has taken up responsibility to keep a better, more updated PPA set for chromium. They include:

You can purge your older PPA using ppa-purge command.

Note: The above PPAs are only for 12.04 at the moment.

Daily Builds

For the daily builds, you can use the Chromium Continuous Build site to get the binary for your architecture.


Try these commands:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*chromium*
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update

You can also install google-chrome-unstable if you want something similar to the chromium daily builds, from the official Google repositories. Here is the list: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/google_chrome
