@SirCharlo I know your comment and this question are rather old, but I found your link to work quite well. Do you think you can add the gist of that as an answer?

comment How to install Ubuntu on a very old PC
A defective motherboard on the acer 5100 series notebooks made it so that the dvd drive and harddrive on my laptop are no longer working. However, using a spare external usb harddrive and usb dvd rom drive, I have been able to run Ubuntu with no bugs. I now use my old laptop as a desktop. What he wants to do is quite possible and has been done before. In my case, I, in addition to a lack of cd/dvd drive, lacked an internal hard drive and even managed to do it.

hmmm, try restarting lightdm. press ctrl+alt+f2, log in, and enter sudo service lightdm restart. Not quite sure why, but I remember it solved similar problems for me when I first installed Ubuntu.

doesn't look as though the package as been updated in over 3 years. Also doesn't seem like there is a ppa for it, not like it would matter given how there are no updates. It is definitely not in raring's repository. Nvm, found it ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/getdeb_games?dist=raring

@SajanParikh Telling you this a little late, but there was a question asked about Chromes dependency issues some time ago. I liked your comment here on how to go about it. Could you add it as an answer to that question?

comment Installed google chrome but I cannot launch it. It does not appear on dash?
Also, I should mention that raring uses libudev1 and not libudev0. The two solutions I've seen is installing libudev0 or use symbolic links.
