Followed all these instructions and it went without incident.  The binary
is  /opt/chromium/chrome.  Everything seems to be working well--I copied my
$HOME/.config/google-chromium/Defaults to the newly created
$HOME/.config/chromium directory which saved all my settings.  

It also seems to open faster than google-chrome.  
Thank you for your efforts.
