With the whole package contents in place, you need to make sure that Chromium will be able to find its libraries and other needed files. There is a pre-fabricated script for this.

  1. Log into Local Terminal as root.
  2. Change into the /custom/chromium-browser directory.
  3. Enter the command ls -l.
  4. You will see that instead of a single script as in the previous example there are the etc/ and usr/ directories. They include many libraries and other files that Chromium will need to run.
    However, it expects these directories not within the /custom/chromium-browser/ directory, but in the filesystem root, where system directories such as /usr are located. The Initialization Script for the Custom Partition will fix this by setting up symbolic links, so that for example /custom/chromium-browser/usr/lib/library.so will appear to be in /usr/lib/library.so, where Chromium expects it.
  5. Use the GNU nano editor to create the file custompart-chromium-browser and put the following contents into it - alternatively, edit the file elsewhere and copy it into /custom/chromium-browser/:

    # mount point path
    MP=$(get custom_partition.mountpoint)
    # custom partition path
    # output to systemlog with ID amd tag
    LOGGER="logger -it ${ACTION}"
    echo "Starting" | $LOGGER
    case "$1" in
    	# Initial permissions
    	chown -R root:root "${CP}" | $LOGGER
    	chmod 755 "${MP}" | $LOGGER
    	# Linking files and folders on proper path
    	find "${CP}" | while read LINE
    		DEST=$(echo -n "${LINE}" | sed -e "s|${CP}||g")
    		if [ ! -z "${DEST}" -a ! -e "${DEST}" ]; then
    			# Remove the last slash, if it is a dir
    			[ -d $LINE ] && DEST=$(echo "${DEST}" | sed -e "s/\/$//g") | $LOGGER
    			if [ ! -z "${DEST}" ]; then
    				ln -sv "${LINE}" "${DEST}" | $LOGGER
    	killall -q -SIGTERM chromium-browser
    	sleep 1
    	killall -q -SIGKILL chromium-browser
    echo "Finished" | $LOGGER
    exit 0
    Use this as a script template for your Custom Partitions, replacing all instances of chromium-browser with the directory name of your CP.
  6. Make the script executable with the following command:
    chmod a+x custompart-chromium-browser
  7. Run the script:
    ./custompart-chromium-browser init
    It should run and finish without any errors.
    The library paths are set up now.
