Iron for Arch?

Postby anon_user » Tue Mar 01, 2016 12:32 am

Hi, I just registered today.

How can I get Iron working on Arch? I have Iron running on Ubuntu just fine but on Arch, I can't find it from AUR to begin with, and downloading the newest "iron-linux-64.tar.gz" and running "iron" from there gives me "NaCl helper process running without a sandbox! Most likely you need to configure your SUID sandbox correctly".
I've always liked the simplicity of chromium/chrome, but I can start looking for some other non-tracing browsers if there's no solution.

edit: How did this end up in "Iron/Chrome Extensions (English)" :D

Hello anon-user

I have just picked up this thread whilst trying to install this browser to Manjaro 17 and have managed to do it. See http://www.srware.net/downloads/iron-linux-64.tar.gz. Download this tar file to your home folder . Extract and open this folder. Then follow the instructions in the readme text file. I referred to the "older kernel" paragraph. I now have a Chromium Manjaro Mint menu item under the "Internet" heading which starts the SRIronware perfectly and with all my settings configurations and extensions all intact.

Hope this helps

Cheers

John

Hi, in Manjaro (or Arch), you can install it from a *.deb file (Debian/Ubuntu) and dpkg. It works. The only problem is that it asks me once a session to update it (it is already up to date!).
To install it with the deb file:
Install dpkg:

Code: Select all

yaourt -S dpkg

You can use another pacman wrapper like pakku as well.

Download the deb file:
http://www.srware.net/downloads/iron.deb (32-Bit)
http://www.srware.net/downloads/iron64.deb (64-Bit)
Open a terminal in the folder where the installation file is located and...

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i iron64.deb

To uninstall iron:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -r iron64.deb


Note: I did not have problems of dependencies but with this method, it is better to check & install them at first.
