Following these directions to install nodes on a Raspberry Pi

Using the following to install chrome browser

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser However, after installing, when I try launching(via terminal) get the following error

error [1:1:1827694911:ERROR:nss_util.cc(692)] Failed to load NSS libraries.

Anyone know how to resolve this?

  • Did you test is using chromium --kiosk http://www.google.com/ like it tells you in the tutorial? – Dom Nov 27 '13 at 16:58
  • according to this site github.com/SamyPesse/tv.js/issues/19 you can Fix the NSS Libraries issue by symlinking /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/nss/ too /usr/lib/nss – Steve Robillard Nov 27 '13 at 17:43

The symlinking worked for me and for my RPi, as in this worked:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/nss/ /usr/lib/nss

  • You do know that you can mark a self-answer as the answer to the problem? Please mark this as such, we are trying to get the site Q:A ratio up and that would help us a lot! Thanks! – RPiAwesomeness Mar 23 '14 at 17:07


sudo apt-get purge chromium-browser
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:chromium-daily/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

if that doesn’t work, try Steve's solution by symlinking /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/nss/ to /usr/lib/nss:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/nss/ /usr/lib/nss
  • tried the latter now get 2 warnings (process:2479): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library. Using the fallback 'C' locale. (chromium:2479): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: – user2005121 Nov 28 '13 at 19:07

    @user2005121 try this command dpkg-reconfigure locales – Steve Robillard Nov 28 '13 at 22:41
