Hi, testing Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) Arch Linux (64-bit).

Trying to bookmark any page with drag and drop from the URL bar into Bookmarks bar completely crash the browser - happens every time.

Various site tooltips also do not work, showing only black rectangles in completely random positions on the page.

I'm currently testing @jstkdng's ungoogled-chromium-ozone 78.0.3904.108-1 from here:

and discovered that the thumb mouse buttons for forward/back (5-buttons-mouse) are not working, neither is password import (with --enable-features=PasswordImport flag set in chromium-flags.conf).

Can that be related to the ozone build? Can someone here confirm if these two things are working with chromium-ozone 78.0.3904.108-1?

The VAAPI patches for the X11 builds are not compatible because Ozone uses a significantly different codepath for video decoding generally.

I don't believe the Igalia team working on this have made desktop VAAPI a priority, although it seems they have video acceleration via v4l2 working for embedded devices:

I've personally tried to make it work. A minor fox is required to make it build with the use_vaapi flag, but then I couldn't find a combination of minigbm, libdrm etc that made the video acceleration actually happen.

Can you please explain why VAAPI does not work? Is the VAAPI-patch incompatible or is there another reason?

Any chance of adding a binary version as AUR package chromium-ozone-bin?

What I'm looking for is an ungoogled-chromium with VAAPI and Wayland support. If I only had the knowledge and time...

@osandov I just saw this:

The window title is fixed on the current master branch.

hedgepigdaniel commented on 2019-11-11 00:09

@osandov I suspect that is on the TODO list (along with the fact that the close button has no effect). Check the existing list of bugs first.

Does anyone else have the issue that Chromium windows in GNOME are titled "Unknown"? I'm planning on opening a bug upstream but I wanted to make sure it's not just something about my setup.
