Ubuntu: I'm having a hard time installing Google Chrome on 16.04 LTS, please help?



Question:

I downloaded 64 bit version of google chrome from their website and tried to install it and this is what i get every time. when i try to install libappindicator1 it says that is depends on libindicator7, when i try to install this it says depends on libappindicator1.

I am still relatively new to this and don't know all that much, any help is very much appreciated.

Solution:1

Yup, get the same thing, running sudo apt-get -f install fixes it. Don't put the package name, apt-get will figure it out. Also had a similar experience with Dropbox, but it was not a big deal either to fix (same method)
