I'm new to Ubuntu and am a little confused on how to get and run dartium. I went to the dartium homepage and downloaded the zip package for linux distros, but I don't really understand what is inside (I'm on a 64-bit build of Ubuntu):

enter image description here

Basically, I do not see an executable named Chromium anywhere as I was expecting and see no README or anything to tell me how what any of these files do. My main question is after I download the zip file and extract it, what do I do from here to be able to run dartium?

The executable is named chrome. I'm not sure why they posted that the executable is named Chromium, since it hasn't been named that for a long time.

As the other answer correctly points out, the executable is named chrome and not chromium on linux. On top of that, I found the problem here.

I used the temporary workaround which is to create a link:

sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.1 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.0

The issue was posted two years ago, it's unfortunate a fix has not been made yet...
