Chromium Browser on Linux cannot see Chromecast

When you try casting from the Chromium Browser, you click on cast… but it cannot find any devices.


A setting needs changing, go to the settings address “chrome://flags/#load-media-router-component-extension” and select “enable”.


Reducing disk writes

Under systemd, jounald writes the system log to disk every five minutes. To reduce the number of writes to disk, this can be changed to once a day, by changing the line



in the file /etc/systemd/journald.conf.




So, you set an environmental variable called PATH in your .bashrc.

This gives you goodies like tab completion of the name and not needing to type in the full path for a program.

If you use a CDPATH environmental variable, you get the same magic when using cd to change directories.

Make sure to include to include “.” in the path, so that cd looks in the current directory.
