I was trying to install chromium on the RPi but it does not seems to be working. I am using a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.

This is what i typed:

sudo apt-get install chromium 

...and I got this error:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 chromium : Depends: chromium-inspector but it is not going to be installed
 skypeweb : Depends: libjson-glib-1.0-0 (>= 0.12.0) but it is not going to be installed
            Depends: libjson-glib-1.0-0 (>= 0.8.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Please advise on how to correct the problem.

    What OS and version are you running? Have you tried the suggestion from the error message: Try apt-get -f install chromium? Commented Jul 13, 2016 at 8:02

Follow its advice. Run sudo apt-get -f install

After that, re-run sudo apt-get install chromium


For Raspberry Pis running Jessie you can install Chromium using this code.

    wget -qO - http://bintray.com/user/downloadSubjectPublicKey?username=bintray | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://dl.bintray.com/kusti8/chromium-rpi jessie main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser rpi-youtube -y
