When reporting this package as outdated make sure there is indeed a new version for Linux Desktop. You can have a look at the "Stable updates" tag in Release blog for this. Do not report updates for ChromeOS, Android or other platforms stable versions as updates here.

This package will automatically get updated as soon as the Debian package is available. This is checked at least once per hour.

@Parintachin:

Thanks for the help. Yes, --force-device-scale-factor=2 does fix the problem.

Thank you. -Jack

@Jackcode01:

Yup; apparently it's a bug further up the chain? It came up again when Brave was updated yesterday; the guy maintaining that package was good enough to answer me.

A fix is to run Chrome with --force-device-scale-factor=2, as described here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/HiDPI#Chromium_/_Google_Chrome

On Manjaro KDE with 200% scale setting, Everything is HUGE!

to get get hardware video acceleration, you need to explicitly pass; --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder

in the CLI. the flag “enable-accelerated-video-decode” is no more in chrome 91.

Using this on a high-dpi screen with scaling appears to apply the scaling twice. Everything's huge.

Manjaro KDE.

Hello, thank you maintaining this PKGBUILD. I wonder if a script similar to archlinux-java could be added. Currently package() results in a script called /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable but there are tools/libraries that rely on existence of google-chrome instead.

Here's an example for webbrowser python module:

python -c 'import webbrowser; webbrowser.get(); print(webbrowser._tryorder)' => ['firefox', 'xdg-open', 'epiphany', 'opera', 'links', 'elinks', 'lynx', 'w3m']

After creating a symbolic links this starts to works as expected:

ln -s /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable /usr/bin/google-chrome
python -c 'import webbrowser; webbrowser.get(); print(webbrowser._tryorder)' => ['firefox', 'xdg-open', 'epiphany', 'google-chrome', 'opera', 'links', 'elinks', 'lynx', 'w3m']

@angeletiff: Sounds like you have a faulty AUR helper.
