Install Chromium on Fedora 22

Reading Time: 1 minute

Today I tried to install chromium on my new Fedora 22 installation.

The Chromium package is not present in Fedora’s standard repositories.

Following Fedora’s documentation I performed the following:

1. Download the new repo information containing the chromium package

wget https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium-stable/fedora-chromium-stable.repo

2. Copy the new repo into yum’s respos folder

cp fedora-chromium-stable.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/.

3. Install Chromium package

yum install chromium

These 3 above steps are part of the official fedora configuration.

In my case though, the installation failed due to a  signature key error/missing

warning: /var/cache/dnf/x86_64/22/fedora-chromium-stable/packages/chromium-43.0.2357.124-2.fc22.x86_64.rpm: Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 93054260: NOKEY

Curl error (37): Couldn’t read a file:// file for file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/spot.gpg [Couldn’t open file /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/spot.gpg]

If the same happens to you, don’t worry, it is just a matter to skip the signature key check.

Run the yum install command with the -nogpgcheck switch like this:

yum install chromium –nogpgcheck

I hope this helps you in some way folks.
