I have added repository following official instruction, but when new version is out, f-droid don’t show new version, and not installs automatically (with privileged extension).
So, is there any way to enable auto updates for ungoogled chromium?!
F-Droid, by default, doesn’t notify of updates for unstable releases. The repository you added isn’t marking the new version as stable. I don’t know if that is intended or not, you will have to ask the ungoogled-chromium team.
In F-Droid settings, when enabling Expert mode, you can enable “Unstable updates” but it will affect all apps, not just Ungoogled Chromium, so that may not be what you want either.
Thank you for the anwser!
But why ungoogled chromium cannot be added to f-droid?
Who knows, it may be possible to add it. The thing is…
Nobody tried to add it: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/issues?scope=all&state=all&search=ungoogled+chromium
And nobody ever asked for it: https://gitlab.com/fdroid/rfp/-/issues?scope=all&state=all&search=ungoogled+chromium
it may be possible to add it
I though the issue with Chromium on F-Droid is that it has an absurd amount of dependencies to compile and would be a laborious build script to craft.
My computer can compile Fenix in ~25 minutes each, yet Chromium takes well over 90.
F-Droid build server takes six hours to compile both Fennec F-Droid variants if I read the build logs correctly.
Even the Chromium source download itself is 60+ GB.
