I want to install Google Chrome on Ubuntu but I am not been able to do so.
I know there are answers for my question on other posts but they didn't solve my problem.
Problem is that after I download the google chrome for Debian/Ubuntu but when I click install, nothing happens.
Thanks in advance!
First Install Gdebi by
sudo apt-get install gdebi
gdebi try installing google-chrome with
you can use
gdebi to install deb file in terminal or graphical
in terminal way you can install the deb by sudo gdebi in your case it is
sudo gdebi google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
If the file is in your downloads folder, run this instead:
sudo gdebi ~/Downloads/google*
If the file is in
/tmp run this instead:
sudo gdebi /tmp/google*.deb
GDebi will automatically resolve any dependencies and install the deb file
Option 1: pure terminal
You were in your home directory (indicated with
~) in the terminal window. However, the file is located in
~/Downloads directory. So write
sudo dpkg -i Downloads/goo and press Tab. It will complete the filename (if it’s not ambiguous – and it won’t be ambiguous in your almost empty Downloads directory).
Option 2: involving GUI interactions
Another option is to write
sudo dpkg -i and drag the file from Nautilus into Terminal window. This should fill in the full path.
If you are not very particular about the Chrome then you can also try Chromium Browser. It is available in the Ubuntu Software Center.
