This page explains how to make chromium usable in mobile UIs like plasma-mobile.
Install chromium package from alpine.
Configure startup (scale + useragent)
Edit /usr/share/applications/chromium.desktop and set the following line:
Exec= chromium-browser %U --start-maximized --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.4.2; Nexus 5 Build/KOT49H) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/32.0.1700.99 Mobile Safari/537.36"
You may adapt scale and useragent to your needs.
Currently on-screen keyboard does not work with plasma-mobile (see ). You may install this extension to get a virtual keyboard nevertheless (though it does not work with every website):
Access "chrome://flags". To do that type it in the plasma-mobile search bar (on home screen), and then copy and paste it in the chromium url bar.
Enable the following flags:
- Smooth Scrolling
- Overlay Scrollbars
- Scroll prediction
This will allow to have a good scrolling experience, and hide scrollbar, so that it does not take screen-space.
