Hi Steve.

I've waited for years that someone took over this plugin, since it was for me 
the most useful
zeitgeist plugin I had.

Unfortunately, I followed the instructiones you wrote here, and the ones in the 
README file, but it
still doesn't work.

Ubuntu 14.04

Google Chrome 46.0.2

Connecting to native messaging host <b>org.zeitgeist.data-providers.chrome</b>
zeitgeist.js:101 Failed to connect: Invalid native messaging host name

Any tip?

  chrome/ium data-source plugin uses no-longer-supported api (NPAPI)

Status in Zeitgeist Data-Sources:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  When I go here: 

  to install the Chromium plugin for Zeitgeist, after confirming the
  installation/permissions, a yellow info bar says "NPAPI plugins are
  not supported."

  No history from my Chromium use seems to be logged in the Activity

  I use Chromium as my primary web browser -- my version info (major
  version 39):

  Chromium:     39.0.2171.65 (Developer Build) Built on Ubuntu 14.04, running 
on LinuxMint 17.1
  Revision:     b853bfefba0da840f4574eb3b5c7ad6e9b8573b5
  OS:   Linux 
  Blink:        537.36 (@185325)
  JavaScript:   V8
  User Agent:   Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like 
Gecko) Ubuntu Chromium/39.0.2171.65 Chrome/39.0.2171.65 Safari/537.36


  See here: http://www.chromium.org/developers/npapi-deprecation

  chrome://flags doesn't seem to have the Enable NPAPI flag anymore; the
  api seems to be not only deprecated but, in recent versions, well and
  truly gone.


  This is what the Chromium devs suggest for a replacement for communication 
with native apps: 

  Replacing the data-source would probably entail building a browser
  extension to watch activity, and then building a zeitgeist sub-process
  of some sort that can communicate over JSON w/ the extension. It will
  also be necessary to put a file describing how to start the "host"
  (i.e. native, zeitgeist-side) process in a Chrome/ium subdirectory.

  Other alternatives (probably not relevant) are described here: 


  For me, and I think for many users, the vast majority of my computing
  is on the internet. There are many days when I don't open a single
  desktop application besides Chromium. While I can still get benefit
  out of Zeitgeist by using Synapse, it won't be possible/worthwhile to
  form the habit of accessing the desktop primarily through the Activity
  Journal or suchlike until Chrome/ium is supported. Also, it feels like
  a huge hole in Synapse for it to ignore my web usage -- especially
  when it *doesn't* ignore the few pages I've visited in Firefox. So,
  for my use case, this bug is moderately severe.

  I'm willing to do some work in making this happen; I have general
  programming experience, although I haven't any experience with Chrome
  Extensions or any of the relevant languages except JS and Python, and
  I'm not sure I feel confident taking on this whole project by myself
  because I've never successfully built an app or plugin of any size on
  my own, and only once in a group. Get in touch and tell me what you
  need done!

  Thank you.
