Well, since I am still wiak when running as user 'puppy' and still wiak when running as user 'root', the above is all fine, thanks, and not any cause at all for alarm to me.

I'd say just install chromium-browser with Synaptic or apt-get and run with --no-sandbox
Code:
chromium-browser --no-sandbox --disable-infobars


(just tested this and works, chromium-browser version 69)

You can also edit the .desktop launcher in /usr/share/applications and add --no-sandbox --disable-infobars to the Exec= line , then it will run as root from Menu

P.S. @all Let's talk somewhere else about security.

Fred

Fine. Any web site/link could achieve root access/control of your box via a single browser bug and you accept that. Just pointed it out as others might feel differently. Fred wants to consider it no further here so enough said.

Hi Zagreb !

Maybe try this one :

Foxit Reader for Linux:
https://de.ccm.net/download/downloaden-5012-foxit-reader-fuer-linux

Tested in Bionic Dog .It is a deb File .
You can just extract the FoxitReader.deb and start the extracted deb from usr/bin/FoxitReader or install the deb.
But......as far as i remember FoxitReader gave me some Problems when printing Pdf Files .Sometimes it did not print correctly.....same problem occurs for me also with Evince Document Viewer .

Hi zagreb,

Ditto backi. IIRC, under Xenial it will require some qt-libs. ldd will sort out which and PPM will provide them.

It needs some extra packages (libraries) installed, works for me after:
Code:
apt-get install libxslt1.1 liborc-0.4-0


Or try backi's suggestion (I didn't test that)

Fred
