I don’t have GNOME installed, so I tried reproducing this with

 GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID=1 chromium-browser

Indeed, the panel at the top appeared:

 Chromium isn't your default browser.     [Set as default] [Don't ask again]

When I chose either, the problem went away and that panel did not appear
next time.  So, two questions:

1. Does choosing “Don't ask again” work as a workaround?

   This modifies the check_default_browser setting in
   ~/.config/chromium/Default/Preferences, so if it doesn’t work, it
   might also be interesting to try modifying that directly.

2. What does your



Thanks in advance,
