Chrome popup: "Out-to-date"

Post by spujols »

Good morning,

I have a raspberry Pi and I'm playing Google Chrome automatically on boot on kiosk mode.

After few hours a popup appears on the right-corner warning that it was not possible to update Chrome to the latest version and the current one is not up to date.

As my device is unattended, I'm interested to avoid this kind of messages. Someone know if there any parameter or somthing easy to avoid Chrome to check for new updates?

Code: Select all

--check-for-update-interval=604800
And restart every day.

Thank you for the answer.

I found this solution before, but I really don't know how to call Chrome application with this parameter. Note that I configure the raspberry with the Wtware Center software and the webpage is displayed automatically. I don't have the possibility to include this parameter in the config.wtc file because the program detected an incorrect structure.
