Latest commit 13f7861 Oct 26, 2018



This package is used by EOS to package Google Chrome as a flatpak, to provide the "client side" entry point to the sandboxed application, that knows how to run itself from outside the flatpak sandboxed environment.

Detailed description

This package provides a launcher script (eos-google-chrome-app) that will be called by the system helper program installed in the OS as part of the eos-google-chrome-helper package.

Adittionally, the wrapper script keeps and monitors a process running inside the flatpak sandbox for Chrome while the browser is running, to prevent uninstalling / updating it while running, relying on flatpak's own locking mechanisms.
