Subject description: (An updated version of 666philb's XenialPup64 CE 7.5 with k 4.14.2)
 

Service Pack - SP1

The release of Google Chrome version 65.0.3325.146 on 6th March introduced an additional on-screen warning
message for those of us running it as root with the --no-sandbox flag as is the case with this Pup.

They swiftly become annoying and a service pack is attached which is intended to cancel most of them.
It may be installed before or after upgrading to 65.0.3325.146

In particular this SP1 pack:
Removes the BBC weather item from wbar.
Points the wbar CYTS and Smart TV icons at their own dedicated Chrome wrapper script.
Revises the main wrapper script for launching Chrome.

For a complete cancellation job you may wish as I have, to change a couple of launchers on page.1 of newtab
so that appear.in (Free group video chat - webrtc) and (BBC) Weather are launched from there.

Finally I have posted a YT playlist containing 2 brief videos of Brexit Pup in action.

Another Service Pack - SP2

In the original post in this thread I made a brief mention of "YouTube Leanback" as one of this Pup's main features.

Quote:
9. YouTube Leanback accessed via the Sky News icon on wbar. Press Esc to return to the main menu/search facility.


Leanback is the YT interface used on all smart TVs. In effect this brings that feature to any PC monitor but with
the advantage of being able to input a search with a real keyboard rather than letter by letter using a TV remote
control with the on-screen keyboard.
I gather that an Android phone can also be used as a controller with either a PC or Smart TV.

This pack (SP2), in conjunction with the revised main Chrome wrapper in SP1, eliminates another of the annoying warning messages.
The single revised script that it contains reads as follows and a full sized screenshot of Leanback can be found in the downloads folder here:

Yet another Service Pack: - SP3

Google Chrome version 65.0.3325.181 was released on 20th March 2018 which requires
another service pack that is attached below.

This pack overwrites SP1 & SP2 if they have been installed. There is no need to uninstall them.
If they have not been installed just install this SP3 pack.
