I'm looking for standalone packages for Google Chrome / Chromium which can be extracted and used as binaries for my Selenium test suite.

How do I go about such a thing?

Relevant Question: Download older versions of Google Chrome for Linux – gertvdijk Jan 15 '13 at 9:56

Standalone packages for Google Chrome can be found at the following links:

64bit Ubuntu

32bit Ubuntu

Source: Google Product Forums

For development, you may however prefer to download and build Chromium. documents this process for you here, with the source code found here.

These are the standard packages which will be automatically updated (the package installs the Google repositories). I guess the OP wanted to install specific versions. – gertvdijk Jan 15 '13 at 9:45
Is the last paragraph more suited to the question? – njallam Jan 15 '13 at 9:50
Sort of, but that requires him to build all old releases - question states packages. – gertvdijk Jan 15 '13 at 10:04

Have you tried:

apt-get install <package name>=<version>

apt-get install subversion-tools=1.3.2-5~bpo1


You can check version for example here:

it should be a Google Chrome dir on

seems google chrome hates older chrome. for natty, the latest working version of Chrome x64 that does not ask gconf-service it's: google-chrome-stable_27.0.1453.110-r202711_amd64.deb

if you followed other tutorials & failed.

Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal - released in April 2011 and supported until October 2012.
