Re: [SOLVED] chromium fails to launch, missing library

And related? Why do you have ffmpeg 4.0 in [stable]? It's not published yet, only in [testing].

Currently chromium is queued for a rebuild to fit to ffmpeg 4.0 and will then be available
in [testing].

Ah ha, therein lies the rub..! Thanks.. smile

I now vaguely recall using the testing version of ffmpeg due to some forgotten glitch another app.

Think I'll downgrade for now... .. .

. .. ...and it now launches! wink
