    Chromium on Kali

    Hey community,
    today I wanted to install chromium on my Raspberry Pi 3 B but it doesnt start up.
    The chromiums version ist 53.0.2785.143.

    How did I install Chromium:
    1. I got the .deb package from
    2. Didnt work out at first, needed to install dependencies first
    3. Installed dependencies and chromium

    Now Chromium does not start. No error message, nothing to reference to :/

    Usefull information:
    Hardware: Raspberry Pi 3B
    OS: Kali GNU/Linux Rolling
    Installed Chromium: 53.0.2785.143 armhf
    I hope my information is enough for you to help me getting Chrome working.

    Thx guys

    Chrome won't run as root! You must run it as another user.

  3. #3
    Execute these only once:
    useradd -m kali
    xhost +

    Then run the browser with:
    sudo -u kali chromium

    Thx for your answer scorpius.

    Without scorpius commands I will get this error message (starting chromium in terminal)

    If I try scorpius commands following error message is being displayed
    root@kali:~# sudo -u kali chromium-browser
    Segmentation fault
    root@kali:~# [995:995:1213/] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.

    That's strange. I just ran chromium 53.0.2785.14 perfectly in a virtual machine. The Segmentation fault must mean that something else is wrong.

    Perhaps you can try:
    apt purge chromium
    apt install chromium

    chromium works with command like this:

  7. #7
    Yep, that also works. Here's the full command I used.

    chromium --no-sandbox --user-data-dir=~/.config/chromium
