Cannot run chromium on Raspberry Pi

Postby xuanhdc » Mon Apr 08, 2019 2:15 pm

I tried googling for this error message but couldn't find anything useful. Any ideas on how to solve it? Perhaps there is another package I need to install? (however I wonder why chromium didn't mark it as a dependency).

As an aside, may I say that the archlinux wiki is amazing and very comprehensive. It has already saved me a lot of time and frustration!

Guess it depends on what Pi.

ArmV6 nope no Chromium, ArmV7 yeap and boy its seems fast compared to Raspbian.

Pretty sure after netctl enable wlan0-YourWiFi-NAME and an update my next step was pacman-S chromium

Setup your GPU mem
echo '
gpu_mem=128
dispmanx_offline=1
dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
dtparam=audio=on
'>>/boot/config.txt

sed -i 's/rootwait/rootwait cma=128MB/' /boot/boot.txt

echo '# avoid sleep
xset s off -dpms
# browse a generic page
chromium --fullscreen https://https://archlinuxarm.org'>.xinitrc
chown alarm:alarm .xinitrc

echo '
# startx on login
[[ -z $DISPLAY && $XDG_VTNR -eq 1 ]] && exec startx > /dev/null 2>&1'>>.bashrc
chown alarm:alarm .bashrc

I think that will pull in everything without even need for fbturbo or mali.

As for v6 generally apart from raspian it seems a no.
