1. Add this link to the list of repo sources "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main"
2. Run in terminal "sudo apt-get update"
3. Run in terminal "sudo aptitude install google-chrome-stable"
Hate to sound stupid, but when you say "Add this link to the list of repo sources " and not explain what that involves it makes what could be an easy "How To" into a lot more looking for steps. Also this doesn't seem to address what version of Chrome this installs.
There seems to be a new problem with this, created by Google. They have dropped support for 32 bit linux machines, but for some reason the cache update keeps looking for it.
The issue is described here:
Unfortunately using the software sources gui will not permanently fix this problem since adding the argument [arch=amd64] to the deb command as in,
deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
seems to revert back to the original after a little while. I'm uncertain of the best way to proceed here.
Thanks a lot for the tutorial! My wife wanted Chrome on her desktop :)
Thanks angelgs for your clear instructions including getting the linux_signing_key.pub
It worked perfectly.
Thanks a lot for this.
I'm using 17.2 , and after updating the software sources (through the software manager) and updating the list, Google Chrome shows up in the software packages.
Worked very well.
Thanks omurad. It worked flawlessly for me.
I still prefer the command line for some task. :-)
It's easy to simply copy and paste this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main"
$ wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo aptitude install google-chrome-stable
And finally, lunch Google Chrome
disregard I finally installe it, thanks for all the help guys.
none of this i working for me guys.
your method will generate a warning in the terminal if apt-get update is run regarding GPG keys. To resolve this,run
wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
before running "sudo apt-get update"
better use xenopeeks download & install method...rather than dealing with complex terminal codes..
You don't need to use the terminal...
1. Go to https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/
2. Click on download
3. Double-click the downloaded file in your file manager and click install
Does exactly the same thing. Replace step 1 with searching on Google for "Google Chrome" to follow link from there to instead install Google Chrome in your native language.
