I recently installed Chrome on Ubuntu, and I can run Chrome via google-chrome on the command line.

However, how can I put a Chrome icon on my dock?

Search for Chrome in the menu and drag it to the dock.

Doing this, you don't need the command line at all.

Right click on the icon in the dock while it's running and select lock/add to favorites.

I wanted to do this, I started Chrome, but it didn't appear on the left band at all. Agmenor's method worked. – Pavel V. Oct 20 '14 at 14:22
