Install Chromedriver on Linux

Unfortunately, the Ubuntu package is for Chromium and not necessarily the most recent version. You have 2 options, however.

Option 1: Download from the official page

  1. Visit https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/chromedriver/downloads
  2. Download and extract (e.g. to ~/bin/ or /usr/local/share/)
  3. Remember to sudo chmod +x chromedriver

Chromedriver must be available in your path. You can add ~/bin to your path like this:

Copy
echo "export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin" >> $HOME/.bash_profile

Option 2: Install via npm

There's a handy npm package.

Copy
sudo npm -g install chromedriver ln -sf /usr/lib/node_modules/chromedriver/lib/chromedriver/chromedriver ~/bin/chromedriver

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
