I tried to install the Reddit Enhancement Suit, when Chromium complained that I can only install extensions easily from Web Store. It downloaded the .crx file. How can I apply it? The linked help page says:

Steps on adding extensions from other websites

We recommend you only add extensions from other websites that you trust. In Chrome, you can follow these steps to add the extension:

  • Download the extension file from the website and save it to your computer.
  • Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
  • Select Tools > Extensions.
  • Locate the extension file on your computer and drag the file onto the Extensions page.
  • Review the list of permissions in the dialog that appears. If you would like to proceed, click Install.

I'm running chromium in X and have no idea how I'm supposed to drag from xterm.

You can try this to see if it works:

  • Open a file manager in X (for example in KDE, open dolphin).
  • Go to the location of the downloaded CRX file (Downloads folder?).
  • Click on the downloaded CRX file and drag it into a window of Chromium.

This process should install the extension.
