installing chromium browser
« on: September 12, 2014, 04:27:17 pm »
want to install chromium browser, but cannot find the package in synaptic package manager

using the terminal i get
nals@fujitsu:~$ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
[sudo] password for nals:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package chromium-browser is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'chromium-browser' has no installation candidate
nals@fujitsu:~$ ^C
nals@fujitsu:~$


what is the correct pacakage i shld be looking for, i got the default xfce 64 repositories

tks
