Enable chromium debugging in VScode (linux)

Æsoteric Positron

I AM GROOT (and so are you)
So, I really like chromium's debugging tools and am quite familiar with them. I installed popOS on my main PC recently. On windows debugging with chrome(or edge) was quite easy, you just had to auto-create a launch.json file. On, popOS though, the situation is a bit tricky. Chromium is only available through flatpak and I can't get chromium to debug my code. I tried using chrome(using .deb package) though, its buggy(or my there's something wrong with my launch.json).

            "file": "/home/abhi/Documents/Code/website-devlopment/html-funda-mentals/index.html"
        }
    ]
}
Is there anything I can do to get chromium debugging on my install?
At this point I am thinking to either install manjaro(which doesn't play well with my multimonitor setup and Nvidia optimus) or go back to developing on windows.

On chrome, did you tried toggling the gtk and classic option for the title bar? In these situations, gtk helps.

edit - you will find it in chrome settings

Chromium is only available as Flatpak on PopOS? Chromium is available in repos of most OSs as a regular package. Have you tried installing via some PPA?

Have you tried installing via some PPA?
No, I haven't. I didn't add any PPA to the system till now (other than the official repos provided by a manufacturer). I don't have any idea regarding which ppa would be secure for this. Since I used to have access to AUR on my desktop install I never had to deal with this stuff :ashamed:

The package is quite out of date, if I am not wrong.

Use this script or

Go to

Download latest one and run the script from the zip.


You can also install older version and update it from setting If it is that old.

Ohh, thanks! I'll try the second method just now! Any idea on which one to download though, the directory structure is kinda confusing

go to linux_rel, then click on table titled “name” to change sorting. Change it such that the file named LAST_CHANGE comes to top. If you click it, it will tell the latest release. Then click on the folder with The latest release and then run the binary.


to make it easy for you, the latest one is 582301 and the link to folder is
