I follow the steps below

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

Now have a "Chromium Web Browser" in the Internet category drop down but clicking on it causes the "working" icon to spin for a few seconds and then nothing.

Jessie is supposed to have chromium in it's default package list. Try purging your current chromium install, and then install like you would any other package (sudo apt-get install chromium blabla)

If it still is not working, try running chromium-browser from a terminal, you should get an error message that better descirbed your problem.


This worked for me this morning:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chromium-ppa.list

Contents of new file:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/canonical-chromium-builds/stage/ubuntu vivid main

#deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/canonical-chromium-builds/stage/ubuntu vivid main

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys DB69B232436DAC4B50BDC59E4E1B983C5B393194
sudo apt update
sudo apt install chromium-browser
