Is there a distro with chromium as default browser like Lubu

Postby Alex01UK » Sat Jun 07, 2014 7:39 pm

See Firefox is the default browser i want to down a 32 bit 'buntu with Chromium as the default browser, like Lubuntu used to be. Gnome 3 prefered. Any suggestions for a 32bit iso for my spare 16gig hard drive. Am looking for a personal recomendation

What the the default matter? You can install Chromium and uninstall Firefox on any distro. Defaults are merely a convenient starting point.

Sorry, my bad. I meant I'd like to run Google Chromium browser on a live iso 32 bit for when supporting customers with older machines. Am giving Linux Mint 17 32 bit MATE a try. Never tried MATE yet.

Making a live iso is not that hard Alex 'Buntu has an app for creating custom live iso's so does fedora and IIRC so does SUSE so you could put together one with all the utilities and goodies for support on a usb key or CD/DVD for the real oldies that don't boot from usb or if you are real lazy have a look at Knoppix has all the utilities and choice of desktops if you go the DVD route ;)

Enjoy the Choice :)

If you look as a distro's listing on Distrowatch, it lists the included software, with versions, although it doesn't appear to differentiate between Chromium and Chrome.

Hi there. I'm going to give the Knoppix dvd a go. So I download the dvd.iso which is the right one I think; it's 3.8 gig. How do I create a bootable usb stick from the iso? Will the ubuntu Create Startup Disk option work or does that have to be a 'buntu iso? It worked with Linux Mint 17 Mate. Very impressed with Mate actually.....

Use isohybrid (part of the syslinux package) to convert hte ISO to a hybrid then copy it with dd.

Code: Select all
isohybrid dvd.iso
dd if=dvd.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4k


Make sure you use the right device for of, or you could trash your hard drive. You use the whole disk, not a partition.
