I've just recently installed Ubuntu alongside Windows using file mount audit. I'm just using a 32 bit Ubuntu and downloaded a 32 bit chrome for it but couldn't install it, I always receive " bad architecture " message each time I install it. I already checked if I got 32 bit chrome and yes it is. Does the issue have something to do with the way I installed Ubuntu?

  • If you try (just to see what happens not as a solution) to install Chromium from the repositories does it give a similar error ? Commented Feb 24, 2014 at 8:05

You can install it through the command line. Open the Terminal and:

 sudo apt-get install libxss1
 wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
 sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb

If you only need something like chrome, you can usually get Chromium from the Ubuntu Software Center or Muon Discover. It's good if you just need a google browser. It has all of the same features as Chrome, I believe. It's a really nice alternative.
