I'm trying to use progress web apps on EOS7 but have been unsuccessful. I'm using the flatpak version of chrome and when i select the install as web app option, i receive a message saying that the browser doesn't have permission to access the application folder...I tried to grant permission but ended up deleting the keyring. How can i successfully install PWAs on EOS7 using chrome?
As Vlad mentioned in his comment, Google does not offer an officially supported Flatpak of Chrome. You can install it as a
.deb file, though:
- Using a browser or terminal, download the
- Install it by double-clicking the file in the UI or, if you prefer to use the terminal, with
sudo apt install ./google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
When installing Chrome, the source for the package will be added to your
apt sources list. You can confirm it exists by checking the
/etc/apt/sources.list.d directory for a file named
google-chrome.list. This will ensure that Chrome receives updates as they become available.
