At the moment, (at least until a package gets built) just run brokndodge's install script. (which is on page 3 of this thread I think)

I try to install it in my VL6-light but it prompt out this error...



EDIT: Solve the problem by installing GConf from VL repo. It would be nice if the install script can auto install the GConf package too.....

BTW, Is there a way to uninstall it?

the latest version of the script does check for gconf.  sorry i haven't implemented an uninstall option.  the latest version of the install script and the update script can be found on my blog: brokndodge.blogspot.com i recommend you set a chron job for the update script to run at least weekly.  seems like new builds get released on tuesdays.  but i'm not sure.  print and flash are both working fairly well now and turned on by default.  tho print has broken once or twice.

I noticed the other day that xfce crashes immediately after installing chrome with my installer.  you just have to get to a console and reboot for everything to go back to normal.  but that really shouldn't be needed.  i'm not understanding the problem.  do i need to trigger something in xfce before the script ends?

I noticed the same thing during my installs into VL on virtualbox.  I rebooted from the console and all was well as you described, but I didn't realize that it was Xfce that was crashing. 

I'm going to try the script again and see if
xfdesktop --reload
Is enough to bring the desktop back.  If it works that should be easy enough to include in your script.

xfdesktop --reload didn't work.  I think the problem has to do with permissions.  When I exited root and went back to being a normal user, I didn't have permissions to do anything.  I could not even su again to become a super user once more.  But as you said all you need to do is restart the system and everything is fine.

tried:
xfce4-session
it doesn't have any reload, refresh or restart command line options

xfce4-panel
has a --restart switch, but it just causes the crash to occur more quickly.  once the crash occurs you can run xfce4-panel --restart to get it back, but with limited functionality.  xfce will still need to be completely restarted to get it back to normal. i also tried the --add switch.  same results.  i don't know why the crash is occurring. i think it may have something to do with the google-chrome.desktop file

edit: i don't think that it's just the panel that's crashing, i think it's the whole xfce session.  thing is, when i try to run xfce4-session after the crash, it tells me there is already a session manager running.  but when i try to run xfdesktop, it tells me there is no session manager.  i'm lost.  i also commented out the entire google-chrome.desktop portion of the script and still get the same behavior.  so it's not the overly bloated (with international language support and support for 3 different desktops) .desktop file that's crashing xfce.  maybe it's the exit code.  i don't know.

edit2:  well i triggered the crash again so i could look at the log files. 
dmesg tail gives me this:
Code:
xfdesktop[5870]: segfault at 0 ip b7647e25 sp bfd3c7e8 error 4 in libglib-2.0.so.0.1600.3[b75f1000+cc000]

I just tried running the Check-Update script and got the following error...
./update-chrome: line 66: `check-update': not a valid identifier

Odd, because I seem to remember having run the script without any trouble not to long ago.

stretchedthing  - Sorry for the delay in replying.  I retested the version of update-chrome from my blog.  Worked fine here on VL standard.  Has same issue as install-chrome, for some unknown reason it's crashing xfce.  I think I'm going to post a bug report for xfce.  Try the version from my blog, shouldn't be any different from what you have, but just to be sure.

I tried the makepkg method to package google-chrome and I think it worked. I have uploaded the package to my google site. BUT, google sites has an 11MB file size limit on uploading so I used a method that I am working using in a script/program to take the file apart and be able to put it back together again. I took the file apart into 2 pieces. The script below should wget the pieces and put them back together. Please test and see if the package works.

Code:
#! /bin/sh

wget http://sites.google.com/site/tuxtoys/Home/packages/piece1
wget http://sites.google.com/site/tuxtoys/Home/packages/piece2

cat piece1 > google-chrome-unstable-current-1vl60.tlz
cat piece2 >> google-chrome-unstable-current-1vl60.tlz

check=$(md5sum google-chrome-unstable-current-1vl60.tlz)

if [ $check = "1d4c6c58d1b831772c375ae4a9f51c35" ];then
echo google-chrome-unstable-current-1vl60.tlz has been put back together and is the same as the original.
else
echo google-chrome-unstable-current-1vl60.tlz has been put back together but is not the same as the original. The pieces may be corrupted.
fi

exit 0

daniel - i gave the script a try, wget couldn't get the pieces. i pulled the two pieces using chrome browser but one or both seem to be corrupted. 

on a side note, i have a build system that should build chrome from source now.  but haven't tried because of the instability of the code.  any given update could have bugs that will need patched as soon as possible.  that really means that a static package would require almost a full time maintainer.  there are anywhere from 1-5 full releases each week.  that would require a dedicated build system just for chrome. 

i haven't made any headway at all on figuring out why my two scripts are crashing xfce.  i'm starting to think that it may require going the long way around:  maybe building a slackware package then installing that package.  i just can't see anywhere that my script overlaps xfce.  even if you comment out the parts that touch the google-chrome.desktop file, xfce still crashes. 

does xfce crash using your makepkg method?

I will try to fix the wget/put-together script thingy. I actually haven't had time to try my chrome package on my testing system yet. I am running VL 5.9.1 SOHO (w/KDE) so I can't really test the xfce crash problem.
