Hi I am new to Ubuntu Linux, I have installed on my dell latitude d600 every thing's smooth and fast, I have bean trying to install Google chrome, which I would like to use on Ubuntu, but unfortunately, it shell will not let me install it on my laptop.
Try the following.
Use this code for 32-bit system:
sudo apt-get install libxss1 wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb
For 64-bit system use:
sudo apt-get install libxss1 wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
This installs a needed library for Google Chrome, then downloads the latest version of Chrome to the current working directory and installs it.
google-chrometo start the browser.

Download Google Chrome.
When you open the terminal it is automatically in your home folder, not in the
/tmpfolder. One needs to do
cd /tmpbefore using
wget. And just search for
chromein the dash.
google-chromeimplies it needs to be started via terminal. Which is only handy when trying to troubleshoot. Feb 25, 2014 at 21:42
