Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I try the Ubuntu software center url-request for install a package/program via a browser "http://apt.ubuntu.com/p/package-name".

But with Google Chrome 8.0.552.224 it just sad 'You don't seem to be running Ubuntu' in Firefox it works. Is there any workaround solution to this?

(See this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#web-link-package) I added it as a bug on launchpad.
