Keep Chromium up to date on Debian and Ubuntu

As we are talking about Chromium, now I'll show you how to keep it updated if you use Debian o Ubuntu through a PPA.

For Ubuntu.

To keep updated Chromium en Ubuntu we follow these steps:

We open a terminal and put:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily/ppa
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 4E5E17B5
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser chromium-browser-l10n

For Debian:

This method can also be used in Ubuntu and I particularly like it better. What we do is add to the file / Etc / apt / sources.list the following line:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu <lucid, maverick, natty, oneric> main

In the case of Ubuntu, you have to choose which version you use from the 4 available. In my case with Debian Testing, I put Lucid and it worked perfectly. Then in the terminal:

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 4E5E17B5
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo aptitude install chromium-browser chromium-browser-l10n

This will be enough to keep us updated .. ^^

    Doesn't using a PPA in Debian affect the system? Some time ago I read on a website that it was not advisable to use PPAs in Debian.

      Personally, I would recommend stable 😉

    Well, I had to put in the daily because it had not synchronized the google account in chromium for a few days

    Wow I finally found a way to install chromium (A version other than Chromium 6)

    Thanks a lot! I have a question. Will Chromium update automatically with this?
