Attempted to install this portable to PhatSlacko 5.5. Cannot access Chrome. Message during installation:

Do you want to start Google Chrome now?

Maybe 'libnss3' and 'libnspr4' need to be updated.
See '/tmp/google-chrome-portable.log'.
The 1st post of this thread suggest where these are. BUT, they cannot be referenced by http. AND, they are NOT provided via the Slacko PPM.

I've got no experience of PhatSlacko, only the standard Slacko, but those libs are inside the Firefox directory (which is added to LD_LIBRARY_PATH by /etc/profile so they should be found). If Chrome is not working because they are too old, updating your Firefox should cure that.

I am getting low res fonts in google search pages. This was not a issue from another chrome 32 that I have installed on my same laptop running puppy precise 5.7.1.

Here is the pic of how the affected page looks like. Almost every site is affected by this. The font is low res and mono. I don't know why, but it just is :



The fonts on many pages are really low res. What can I do to fix that. As for now I am reverting to the older Chrome 32 from some .pet that I am running, but please tell me how to fix this as your chrome portable is the only way to have the latest Google chrome installed on Puppy Linux.

Anyone else having this problem as mine?

untrue.

use
chrome33 pet
plus
google chrome fixator pet.

those two should work together to do what you want on any modern puppy.
(presently i have chrome33 running on precise 5.5, 5.6, and 5.7.)

hth (and i'm not sure why it wouldn't, though i can remember the jump from 28-31 being rough on the 5.5 install.)

Add required libraries so that it works with any Precise Puppy and Slacko.

I have a test machine that I use for testing differing version of Slakco. In that system, I have a HDD which is available as /mnt/home upon boot. I have "Portable" installed on this version of Slacko.

When testing a new version of Slacko,what are the recommended steps for the new version to use the Portable installed on /mnt/home by the prior Slacko? (assume the new version boots pfix ram)

With these "portable" subsystems, is there a script that exist somewhere which will attach all the subsystems in a "portable folder" to a new PUP?

Thanks, in advance, for advice on using a single portable location for all future Slacko testing.

PostPosted: Tue 01 Jul 2014, 02:42    Post subject: Using Portable Google Chrome on multiple Puppy  

Once you build the Google Chrome on any Puppy, You can run it from any other (Precise or Slacko) Puppy just clicking the google-chrome-portable. It runs with the same settings and bookmarks.

To register on the new Puppy, right click the google-chrome-portable folder and select 'Register on the Puppy menu' if you want to. Or click the executable 'Register' in the folder.

Thanks for that guidance. This is probably published somewhere, but I could not find it.

PostPosted: Sat 19 Jul 2014, 20:31    Post subject: Attempting portable Chrome after portable Seamonkey fails  

I have a Live media PhatSlacko running. I have successfully installed a portable Seamonkey V0.4 moments ago,and am now trying to install a portable Chrome V0.7. It does NOT pull the Chrome from the web. Instead, the following terminal window shows what happens when Chrome portable installation is attempted. Seems the prior portable SeaMonkey has left some settings which negates this portable to complete successfully.
Code:
# mkdir -p /mnt/home/apps/portable
# /initrd/mnt/dev_save/apps/portable/google-chrome-portable-0.7/google-chrome-portable
google-chrome-portable:/initrd/mnt/dev_save/apps/portable/google-chrome-portable-0.7/google-chrome-portable
google-chrome-portable:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/X11R7/lib:/root/my-applications/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/lib/seamonkey:/mnt/home/apps/portable/google-chrome-portable-0.7/lib
google-chrome-portable:Build
seamonkey-portable:/mnt/home/apps/portable/seamonkey-portable-0.4/seamonkey-portable https://www.google.com/chrome/
seamonkey-portable:HOME=/mnt/home/apps/portable/seamonkey-portable-0.4 /mnt/home/apps/portable/seamonkey-portable-0.4/seamonkey/seamonkey https://www.google.com/chrome/
