Hi,

Thanks for this new version which webGL works again without the flags: disable-gpu-sandbox. But theyr are still two old "problems", cant get it as default browser and this error in ~/.xsession-errors:

LaunchProcess: failed to execvp:
/usr/share/iron/nacl_helper_bootstrap
[3050:3050:386041369:ERROR:nacl_fork_delegate_linux.cc(106)] Bad NaCl helper startup ack (0 bytes)
[3048:3058:387036278:ERROR:nacl_process_host.cc(293)] Failed to open NaCl IRT file "/usr/share/iron/nacl_irt_x86_64.nexe": -4

Can somebody explain where is this coming from?

Hi,

I found where the errors about nacl comes from in this discussion:

http://debianandi.blogspot.ch/2012/06/h ... -nacl.html

The problem is that on my Xubuntu 12.04 I haven't this files:

/opt/google/chrome/nacl_irt_x86_64.nexe
/opt/google/chrome/nacl_helper_bootstrap
/opt/google/chrome/nacl_helper

So the question is, why they are not created or there?

I found the way to suppress the errors like this:

Depend on your achitecture:

# wget http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/googl ... t_i386.deb

# wget http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/googl ... _amd64.deb

Then extract the .deb archiv and the .data.tar.lzma and copy the 3 files: nacl_irt_x86_64.nexe, nacl_helper_bootstrap and nacl_helper from /opt/google/chrome/ to /usr/share/iron and relaunch.

It would be good for the next version to have them included to avoid the exercice.

Hey guys,

Upgraded from lubuntu 10.4 to clean and fresh 12.4 version from ISO yesterday. Opera was browser of choice until it started getting quirky. Chrome was/is lighting fast, but Google can't be trusted. Used Chromium once to download new Iron version then trashed immediately. Installed Flash. BINGO! Fabulous job and working like a charm without a problem. Thank you and good job.

Perfect model: use'em and lose'em! Still probably stuck using Google for Android and youtube. Hopefully we can all wean our-self's from facebook too. These IT behemoths can't be trusted. Say "NO" to MS, Google, facebook, Apple, etc. as there are other excellent alternatives...

Version 21.0.1200.0 Stable (for Linux) reports that my Java version is obsolete and therefore has been deactivated.

I'm using Oracle Java 7 Update 6 and didn't know that there is a newer one.
However, if there was really a newer one, I'd have to wait a few months for the newer release.

So this seems to be an annoying bug.

delete browser-data does not work anymore.
it seems to do its job when clicked, but cookies are still there afterwards.

considering the development of iron over the past 2 years, for me there could be more effort in making iron more privacy-conscious.
by default one can register to google services, google cloudprint is offered, phishing & malware protection is provided by the GOOG and so on... which is all weird as the primary intent seemed to be making users less transparent to google.
for me the "delete browser data"-button could be on top of the options, not hidden by default...

Tip: to work in Mageia 2

I tried using these codes (dependencies) as follows:


Code: Select all
# urpmi libjpeg62

# urpmi libbz2.so.1.0

# urpmi libvacodec.so.52


Creating a link to the executable in /usr/bin/

Code: Select all
# ln -s /usr/share/iron/iron /usr/bin/iron


Creating the link to fix the error of library:
./iron: error while loading shared libraries: libbz2.so: cannot open shared 1.0. object file: No such file or directory

Code: Select all
# ln -s /usr/lib64/libbz2.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib64/libbz2.so.1.0



I believe that with i586 is similar, then I'll post the hint, please test and submit errors to adapt the Tip:

Creating a link to the executable in /usr/bin/

Code: Select all
# ln-s /usr/share/iron/iron /usr/bin/iron



Creating the link to fix the error of library:
./iron: error while loading shared libraries: libbz2.so: cannot open shared 1.0. object file: No such file or directory

Code: Select all
# ln -s /usr/lib/libbz2.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libbz2.so.1.0



Now simply run the iron as a normal user:

Code: Select all
$ iron

the "delete browser data"-button does not work in build 21.0.1200.0 (151411).
you can press it and it pretends to do something, but e.g. cookies are still there afterwards.

btw. why is this button hidden (extra-click) by default in a browser which focuses on privacy?
shouldn't it be next to the adress-bar?
in other words: why is the first option i see (in a browser which attempts to avoid total users transparency to GOOG) when i open the options: "login with your google account"?

is "so called privacy" still the main goal of iron over chrome?
