OS: Ubuntu 13.10 dual booting windows 8.1 (both 64 bit)

So I have downloaded chrome from the chrome download website, and when i double click to open it, it opens up software center, and it says dependencies not satisfiable: libxss1.

I don't know what to do, I am pretty much a linux newbie, since I just managed to get it to dual-boot today. Any Help?

1 Answer 1

So as you mentioned you have downloaded the .deb file you can install it from terminal.

Method 1:

  sudo dpkg -i <your/file/path/to/debfile>.deb

If you facing the dependencies issue then

sudo apt-get install -f

can help you & then try again with 1st command.

Method 2:

as Ubuntu have one more wonderful package which can take care of dependencies automatically named as gdebi. to install it

sudo apt-get install gdebi

Then simply

sudo gdebi <filename>.deb

If any thing else to do with dependencies , gdebi will take care of them.

Hope that helps.

All of those options didn't fix the error –  Andre Dec 2 '13 at 11:29
What's the error you still getting. –  Raja Dec 2 '13 at 12:20
I am doing a fresh reinstall on ext4, but what it says was that it couldn't find gdebi –  Andre Dec 3 '13 at 16:02
