Using Google Chrome Instead of Chromium

Chromium is a limited open source version of the full-featured Google Chrome browser.

For example, in openSUSE Leap 15.2, Chromium is unable to use the camera and microphone, so it can't be used for a Microsoft Teams video conference. The full-featured Chrome browser, however, supports this.

On openSUSE, Chrome can be installed by the following commands:

# Add the package repo.
sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64 Google-Chrome

# Install the code signing key for the repo.
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
sudo rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub

# Update the repo.
sudo zypper ref

# Install Chrome.
sudo zypper in google-chrome-stable
