New Iron-Version: 81.0.4200.0 Stable for Linux

Postby SRWare » Wed May 13, 2020 10:48 am

We released the new Iron for Linux 82 today, which contains all features and updates known from Chromium 81. The current version is 81.4200.0.

Main improvements:
- Widevine CDM for Netflix and Amazon Video works out of the box
- several improvements
- Bug-/Securityfixes

Netflix and Amazon Video should now work out of the Box. If you have any problem, go to chrome://components/, search Widevine, click on Update, wait to finish and restart the browser.

On Debian and distributions which use an older Kernel the following commands may be necessary (the .deb packages already do it automatically):

Code: Select all

cd [insert Iron directory here]
sudo chown root chrome-sandbox
sudo chmod 4755 chrome-sandbox
sudo chmod 4755 chrome-wrapper
./chrome-wrapper (for the start of Iron)


On Kubuntu, Lubuntu and other Non-GNOME-Distributions, please run once:

Code: Select all

apt-get install libgconf-2-4


You can launch the "Config and Backup Tool" via ./IronConfigBackup or via the Shell as "SRWare Iron Config and Backup Tool" under Networks

I am trying to get this to work on a Fedora install. I downloaded the tar and unpacked it, but the readme only explains how to run Iron without installing.

./configure and ./iron aren't seen as acceptable commands and ./chrome only opens up a portable copy of Iron. What am I supposed to type to install it? Thanks in advance!

I downloaded the lasted .deb and installed it on Ubuntu MATE 20.04, but ended up with just the Backup tool.
Where is the Iron browser? How do I get that installed ?

In the "Internet" Menu of MATE Startmenu you don't find the browser?

not right away.

Now I started the iron browser manually from the terminal window (not sure if I rebooted the computer as well), but only then the menu entries showed up ...

The update does not happen the "normal way" (automatically), so that's why there is a browser plugin? ... as a reminder to manually download again and update ?

I'm a little bit disappointed that I did not get a response how to properly install using the tar file.

Anyway, I successfully got it up and running. This is how I did it:

1) Download the .deb file.

2) Install alien (should be in official or RPMFusion repository):

Code: Select all

sudo dnf install alien

3) Convert the .deb to .rpm using alien (You have to write this command in the folder where the .deb package resides. This takes time, be patient):

Code: Select all

sudo alien -r --scripts iron64.deb

(-r = convert to rpm --scripts = convert scripts)

4) Install RPM package:

Code: Select all

sudo rpm -ivh --nodeps --replacefiles file_name.rpm

(In this case the file name is iron64-81.0.4200-1.x86_64.rpm. Normally you just open an rpm, but this produces an error because it might want to modify usr/bin -- the last command overrides this error.).

!Warning: --replacefiles is a very powerful command. Only use it when you are absolutely sure that it will NOT replace your files. I'm not responsible if this eats your system. I tested it on Fedora 32 with Iron 81.0.4200.0 and it worked.
