Install Google Chrome Browser On Ubuntu 12.10

In this post I will be showing you how to install Google Chrome browser on Ubuntu 12.10.  Unlike so many of the packages available by default for Ubuntu you will need to add the Chrome repository before you can install Google Chrome, although you can install something similar called Chromium without this being necessary. You can start installing Google Chrome by following the steps below.

How To Install Google Chrome On Ubuntu

The first thing you will need to do is open a new terminal, you can do this by pressing CTRL+ALT+T.

After this you will need to add the official Google Chrome repository by running the following commands to open your software sources list.

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Once this is opened you will need to add the following line and optionally make a note of it with a comment line like I did below. You can add this anywhere but I always add repositories to the bottom of the list.

# Google Repository
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable non-free main

Once you have done this you will need to add a package signing key with the command below:

sudo wget -q -O – https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -

After this is all completed you will need to update your available packages list, you can do this by running the sudo apt-get update command. You should always do this after adding or removing a repository so that you have an up-to-date available packages list.

The final stelp for you now should be to actually install Google Chrome using one of the 3 commands found below. I would use stable but you can use whichever one you like.

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