Google Chrome for Linux Under LXD on WSL on Windows

Okay I’m in a great position. I need to use this for my dayjob pronto! I have graphics working on the lxdwin default install. I have the optional apt and pip installs working too. Now with all due haste!

Put the Google Chrome requirements in the main repo. This is friggin’ awesome. 1, 2, 3… 1?

Did a few googles. Threw a few commands in apt_installs.sh. Testing now.

OMFG, thank you! It’s working. google-chrome is the way to launch it. Now get to work. Don’t lose anymore time in tooling. When you get a new dependency, throw it into requirements.txt or apt_installs.sh in the lxdwin repo. Wow, this is friggn’ coming together.

Oh, just do one more with most of the requirements thrown in as are obvious from looking at… at which repo? It’s mostly now from seokata. Okay, focus!

Got everything done today that I needed to do, albeit pushing midnight. Still counts, right?

Anyhow, on the lxdwin front, I got Google Chrome installing and its configuration settings surviving between reinstalls.
