Why doesn't Chromium have “Chrome PDF Viewer” plugin?

This is a nice way to get the PDF viewer to work in Chromium.  Essentially, you take the "command" from Chrome and link it, or copy it, to Chromium.

sudo ln -s /opt/google/chrome/ /usr/lib/chromium-browser/

How to run Google Chromium browser from the terminal

In case you need to run the Google Chromium browser from the terminal (such as my case where my unity is messed up/broken), you can use the simple command


Another site for Ubuntu

Whelp, it's been awhile since I've messed with Ubuntu (and this blog!).  I just upgraded from 11.01/12.04 to 13.04 so I think I missed most of 12.04, all of 12.10, and 13.04 (with another release right around the corner, 13.10 in October).  Was using a Windoze laptop and desktop for school.  My desktop has been down for the count with a power issue for a long time, and I haven't had the time to mess with it.  I turned in my school laptop so I had to revert back to this laptop.  This Ubuntu is partially broken, but works for the most part.  I've got a Surface Pro from school to use as well.  Not real impressed with is so far, but it's decent for lightweight Windows usage compared to a traditional laptop.

Anyways, I thought I'd post another Ubuntu website which I thought might be helpful.

It's called n00bs on Ubuntu
