I installed 11.10 Big mistake, can't find anything! Chrome, I installed it, removed it because I couldn't find it re-installed it, still can not find it. Considering going back to 10.04
Chrome, or chromium (which is chrome with all the required plugins as flashplayer etc..) must be installed from software center. When you are sure that the installation is complete and successful, you must go to the launcher in unity, and search for "chrom". Chrome, or chromium should appear in the list. Then, open it, and create a shortcut in the launcher so u can enter it easily afterwards :D
(chrome must be downloaded manually here: https://www.google.com/chrome?platform=linux)
Maybe you need to reboot?
Let me explain.... I had a similar problem with a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04. I installed the Chrome DEB from Google web site. It appeared to install normally, but Chrome was no where to be found.
You should be able to find Chrome in the dash search (available by clicking on the dash home button), but somehow it was not properly initialized yet so it wasn't working properly. It is possible that this was my first session with this installation (I can't remember).
Any, restarting the system fixed the dash search, allowing me to find and use Chrome.
The Better way to do it is-
Download the .deb file from the chrome site..
Install Gdebi package installer..
Right click on the .deb file and select "open with gdebi package installer"
Click on Install..
5.you'll find it installed...!! :)
hope it works for you..!! It always did for me...!! All .deb files should be installed through GDebi in 11.10... :)
