Ubuntu: Cannot Install Google Chrome



Question:

I am having trouble installing Google Chrome on my Ubuntu 11.10 system. After downloading it from http://www.google.com/chrome I am trying to open it with a double click. Software Center pops up, I see the loading wheel, then I get a message that the package cannot be opened. Any help would be appreciated.


Solution:1

Fire up a terminal using Control+Alt+T, then write:

sudo dpkg --install /Path/to/chrome.deb  

Ignore the errors, then:

sudo apt-get install -f  

Then again:

sudo dpkg --install /Path/to/chrome.deb  

The Google Chrome package is missing dependencies; this installs those dependencies. You should be able to install the package.


Solution:2

Fire up a terminal Ctrl + Alt + T and write:

  $ wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -   $ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'  $ sudo apt-get update   $ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable  


Solution:3

In order to install Google Chrome you have to run this command in the terminal :

sudo apt-get install libxss1 libnspr4-0d libcurl3

Or just manually install those 3 packages :

  • libxss1
  • libnspr4-0d
  • libcurl3

And then you can install Google Chrome (I've got the same problem at my first install).

Hope this helps :D


Solution:4

It might be caused by missing packages in your repository. Try to switch to the main server.

See: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu#Download_Server

Then re-run update-manager and install any updates.

I had a similar problem with Google Chrome.


Solution:5

I got the libxss1 deb from here and installed manually: http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/amd64/libxss1/download


Solution:6

I would suggest installing Chrome using the PPA. This can be done two ways.

Simple Way

You can run this bash script, which just wraps the hard way up in a nutshell.

wget http://mtweb.site90.com/files/chrome.sh  bash chrome.sh  

For more info, see Millhousen Tech's Tech-To.

Long Way

The bash script contains the following commands that you can run. (Exact same as simple way, just longer.)

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -  sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list'  sudo apt-get update  

You can then choose what version of Chrome you want to install. Stable, Beta, or Unstable. (Run one of the following commands.)

sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable    sudo apt-get install google-chrome-beta    sudo apt-get install google-chrome-unstable  

For more info, see How Open Source's website.

Just download the older Google Chrome from my Google Drive, i can install it on ubuntu 11.04, this is the link :
