Chrome update on Ubuntu ok?

Chrome 114.0.5735.133 is out and I’m running OS Elementary 6.1 Jolnir (Ubuntu 20.04.6), am OK to update to the new Chrome right now?

I am currently travelling and cannot test it. In general (on windows and macOs), the updates of chrome do not represent any problem. I would expect the it will be the same on Linux.

@stratblue have you updated your Chrome or shall I try that first for you?

Hi @stratblue

I tested Chrome 114.0.5735.133 on Kubuntu-23.04 yesterday. No problems (for me).

Regards, Holger

I have a laptop running the new Elementary now, so I’ll try it on there tomorrow, confirmation would be nice though…

Thanks, Holger. Good to know.

I’m having trouble with this on chrome 119 on linux. I get the popup to select an HID, the electra goes into firmware update and then nothing happens.If I reboot into windows it is just fine. I’ve had to do this for 3.5 and 3.5.1.

Is there a CLI method for doing this? The only local app I could find seems to hang when it starts.

I’m on ubuntu 23.04.

E1 mk1 uses MKL04 (rev 2.0 - 2.2) or MKL02 (rev 2.3 - 2.4) bootloader chip from the PJRC (PJRC Store). It is identical chip that Teensy boards use. So, any info relevant to Teensy 3 / 4 applies to E1 firmware updates too.

I assume it does not work as you do not have udev rules set up. There are more sources with info on how to set that up. eg:

This will allow non-root access to the HID device. I cannot test it right now, but I guess it Chrome will be able run the update when udev rules are in place.

another option is to compile CLI:

note, you do not need to build whole firmware, just the tools in the above directory. When done:

./electra-firmware-tools enter-dfu -p "Electra Controller Electra CTRL"
sudo ./electra-firmware-tools upload --source firmware/build/firmware.img

of course if you have udev rules, you do not need to use sudo for the upload.

The firmware image files can be downloaded from:

I never replied but I just tried this udev suggestion and it worked for the firmware install.
