HOWTO: Install Chromium on Ubuntu 20

Add the unofficial PPA to your apt configuration:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xalt7x/chromium-deb-vaapi

Pin the PPA (otherwise the ‘snap’ version will be installed):

cat <<EOF | sudo tee /etc/apt/preferences.d/pin-xalt7x-chromium-deb-vaapi
Package: *
Pin: release o=LP-PPA-xalt7x-chromium-deb-vaapi
Pin-Priority: 1337
EOF

Refresh your sources:

apt update

Install Chromium:

sudo apt install chromium-browser chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra

You should now be able to see the app displayed on your Applications menu.
