Chromium Browser Ternyata Menggunakan Snap

root
root Software

Karena tidak terlalu nyaman menggunakan Epiphany Browser bawaan Elementary OS Odin, akhirnya saya memasang beberapa aplikasi serupa. 

Sebut saja Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera dan tak lupa Chromium Browser.

Kita akan fokus ke Chromium Browser saja, karena memang software itu yang menyita perhatian saya.

Installasi Chromium Browser

Entah sejak edisi kapan, Chromium Browser harus dipasang melalui Snap.

Tentu saja ini akan membuang banyak waktu dan kuota, setidaknya itu kelemahannya menurut saya.

Tapi apalah daya, karena memang butuh, mau tak mau harus dilakukan juga.

Untuk kasus kali ini saya mengetik sebaris perintah yang banyak fungsinya.

sudo apt install chromium-browser opera-stable htop -y && sudo apt dist-upgrade -y && htop

Pertama saya memasang Chromium Browser, HTOP sekaligus meng-upgrade Opera ke edisi paling baru. 

Kedua, mengecek jika ada paket yang harus diupgrade (mumpung koneksi wifi lancar juga).

Sedangkan ketiga untuk menjalankan HTOP sebagai penanda bahwa tidak ada error dan pemasangan berlajan sempurna. 

Untuk point ketiga sebenarnya hanya "ceremonial" saja.

Dari informasi diatas, sudah jelas terlihat bahwa untuk memasang Chromium Browser, kita terlebih dahulu harus memiliki snapd. 

Chromiuum Browser Sering "Error" Sinkronisasi

Namun berdasar pengalaman terdahulu, ternyata ada kesulitan (tidak bisa) untuk tetap login dan sinkronisasi dengan akun Google. 

Selalu saja ada notifikasi untuk memasukkan ulang kata sandi.

Tentu saja ini membuang waktu dan tidak selaras dengan tujuan awal memasang Chromium Browser.

Sekarang tinggal bagaimana caranya mengulik Chromium Browser agar bisa sinkron dengan akun Google seperti sebelum-sebelumnya.
