I have a Raspberry Pi 1, and I would like to install Chromium for my cloud print server. The only trouble is that sudo apt-get install chromium-browser does not work. Additionally, I tried a method for installing Chromium on RPI, but it was for RPI2 only. I am a noob, and I was wondering whether it is possible to get Chromium on Raspbian Jessie on Raspberry Pi 1. Thank you.


Chromium can now be downloaded and installed, and now comes preinstalled on PIXEL desktop environment, but it does struggle to load pages on the small power of the Raspberry Pi

  • I would like to note that Chromium in some instances will also be run as root, while your user is not a sudo user. But from my experience, I can tell you that you are going to have a bad time running chromium. – Dr_Bunsen Apr 19 '17 at 12:36
