I just noticed in the release notes for Chrome the mention of Web GL .  So, I looked up some instructions to enable it.

I am running Ubuntu Linux, and I installed Chrome from the Deb package.  It created a shortcut in my Applications Menu.  So, I went to the menu editor, and edited the shortcut for Chrome.  I changed the shortcut from this:

/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U

to this:

/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome –enable-webgl %U

When I first started this post, the examples that I found didn’t work.  But, when I tried tonight, this example actually worked.


Google Chrome on Linux!

I got Google Chrome for Linux!  From one of those ad links at the top of GMail, I clicked through to Chrome, and found out that they have a version that works for Linux.  I am actually using it now for this post.

First, they have a place you can enter your email address for notification when the full version comes out.  Currently, it is under development.


From, that page, you will find a link to the Early Access Release Channels, which has the links to downloading Chrome.  If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will find the link to the deb package that you can install.

Google Chrome Install

The other day I found that PlayOnLinux now has a script to install Chrome.  It works for me, but the main problem I have is that it doesn’t support https.
