Hi puppy fans I did not post any new Google-chrome pet for awhile it seamed like everybody was posting them. Now I see people looking for pets so here is the latest development release.

Google-Chrome-dev-10.0.612.1

If you have never installed Google-chrome before get the libs for it to run in puppy here
google-libs-10 Updated 03/21/2011

If you want to use the Google-phone to make phone calls you will need those libs for the plugin that you have to download from Google itself.

Google-Phone-libs

And so that rox will respond well with google-chrome here is a pet to help with that it was supply by jemimah

xdgopen.pet

Hi Grumpy,

I'm using an old Chrome pet from you on a puplet while I used the official deb package plus your libs-7 in Wary 104 (which I summed up in a single pet)

While there's no match with seamonkey about fast script execution and more a constant in Chrome versions on Puppy is the absence of correct handling of downloaded files. Most of times clicking in chrome on a completed download leads to opening geany which complains with a beep...

No solutions?

Chrome uses the xdg-open script to open files. Here is an example of one that works:


Code:
#!/bin/bash
case "$1" in 
        '') exit
                ;;
        *://*) exec rox -U "$1"
                ;;
        *@*.*) exec rox -U "mailto:${1}"
                ;;
        *) exec rox "$1"
                ;;
esac


You'll also want to set up URI symlinks for Rox like so:
Code:
# ls -al /root/Choices/URI/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 2010-12-22 17:02 .
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 4096 2010-06-14 18:34 ..
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   29 2010-12-22 06:43 file -> /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   13 2010-12-22 06:43 ftp -> /usr/bin/gftp
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   29 2010-12-22 06:43 http -> /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   27 2010-12-22 06:43 mailto -> /usr/local/bin/defaultemail
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   33 2010-12-22 06:43 rstp -> /usr/local/bin/defaultmediaplayer

Thanks jemimah,

I saw that code in your rover pet (rover_run) and when I wrote the first post I was about to write "except in Puppeee where it works like a charm" lol.

Subject description: three versions won't work
 

Chrome 5 dev segfaults (with google-libs-2.pet)
Chrome 7 won't do anything, no menu item so I typed google-chrome
Chrome 10 (google-libs-9.pet - downloaded itself somehow along with Cool gives an error message saying it won't install.

300MHz 256MB Winbook XLi

What do I try next other than a different Puppy?

I think that your system is not able to handle this pet your mem is on the low side so it may not work for you.

Subject description: Won't load (zero-length files)
 

Out of disk space not memory. It needed a larger pup_save file and a reboot to install, but like version 7, no menu item, and typing google-chrome gets me back the #

/opt/google/chrome

chrome.pak and google-chrome and a few png and other libraries etc. are 0 length. Is there a way to manually unpack a pet to /opt (tar?)

There is a 45MB chrome. Typing ./chrome got me error messages
about failed to load chrome.pak, no surprise.

ldd chrome - finds the dependencies (libraries)

Chrome 7 stable acted the same.

The reason for trying to install Chrome is that I want to use it on a desktop with 128MB RAMBUS RAM (can't add more for free) instead of Firefox, which uses 200% of RAM there. Someone said Chrome uses less.

I am not an expert on mem usage but google-chrome is not a lite program so I think if you are worried about mem usage then go with SeaMonkey it is designed just for that. I will build a pet of the latest stable google-chrome with a new set of scripts I have gotten and upload for you to try but for memory load size SeaMonkey is better.

Subject description: correct URL?
 

With both lynx and Seamonkey/squirrel mail (webmail) I see the links
starting with [urlhttp: and ending with /url]. I tried typing various parts of this line into the address line of Seamonkey and get 404s not found.
Could you post again as just plain http:/..... ?

I would be happy to test this stable 9 package for installability but I did get 10 usable. It did not install but I was able to tar -zxvf it and copy the google directory to a location outside the file system and start chrome by cd'ing to chrome and typing google-chrome. It uses 89+52+33+24% of my 256MB. Opera 10.62 and Seamonkey 1.1.18 use 32%.

Firefox and Chrome are both using ALL the memory so there is no point trying them with a smaller puppy. Firefox used 200% of 128MB on a desktop with two RAMBUS slots. I set Puppy to not load itself to memory on both computers.

I see that MyWolfe comes with Chrome. How does it compare with Puppy 4.31 for use on old slow computers with 256MB memory?

Anyone know why Firefox and Chrome use so much more memory in linux than in Windows?
