What juvenile crusade? Me thinks you read into things a bit much to much.

Who was bashing Ubuntu or Arch? Not I. I was making reference to a JOKE that ARCH PLAYED A PART IN ON APRIL FOOLS DAY. Let me know if you ever get the teenage kicks...I haven't gotten them for many years now myself.

hey guys, the link: http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/sn ... rel-linux/ doesn't work anymore,
I've found another solution, tough it's good only for the latest stable build: http://dodebian.blogspot.com/2011/12/in ... lease.html

The nightlies are not dead, just moved to another location:

http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com ... ots/Linux/

My update script works just as before with the new location, although browsers sometimes have hard time loading that location (wget works with no issues).

Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
unset basehttp
unset latest
cd /tmp/
rm LATEST* > null
rm LAST_CHANGE* > null
rm chrome-linux.zip
rm chrome-linux.zip.*
#basehttp=http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/Linux/
#basehttp=http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/chromium-linux-reliability/
#export basehttp=http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-linux
basehttp=http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/Linux

echo "Downloading latest version information..."
wget --quiet $basehttp/LAST_CHANGE

if [ -f $HOME/chrome-linux/LAST_CHANGE ]
  then
  echo "Installed dev version is `cat $HOME/chrome-linux/LAST_CHANGE`"
   else
   echo "Cannot get Google Chromium version - not installed?"
fi

echo "Latest Chromium Dev version is `cat /tmp/LAST_CHANGE`"

if [ $((`cat /tmp/LAST_CHANGE`)) -eq $((`cat $HOME/chrome-linux/LAST_CHANGE`)) ]
then
   echo " You have the latest version of Chromium Browser"
   exit 0
else

read -p "Press any key to continue installation or Ctrl-C to abort"
export latest=`cat /tmp/LAST_CHANGE`
echo "Downloading latest Chromium build..."
wget $basehttp/$latest/chrome-linux.zip && rm -rf $HOME/chrome-linux/

echo "Unpacking new version..."
unzip -o -qq /tmp/chrome-linux.zip -d $HOME/ && mv /tmp/LAST_CHANGE $HOME/chrome-linux/

echo "Creating links..."
if [ -d $HOME/bin/ ]
  then
   echo "The bin folder already exists!"
  else
  mkdir $HOME/bin
fi

if [ -d $HOME/bin/icons ]
  then
   echo "The bin/icons folder already exists!"
  else
  mkdir $HOME/bin/icons
fi

echo "Creating menu link"

mkdir -p $HOME/.local/share/applications/

echo -e '[Desktop Entry]\r

rm /tmp/chrome-linux.zip
echo "Installation/Upgrade complete"
exit 0
fi
