When I'm going to install the Google Chrome,it says on the Ubuntu Software Center that Dependency is not satisfiable: libappindicator1

enter image description here

  • run sudo apt-get install -f in terminal. – Pilot6 Jan 11 '16 at 14:51
  • I've already done it,but nothing is changed.Can you tell me the details please? – Deep Jan 11 '16 at 15:03
  • but it still says "Dependency is not satisfiable: libappindicator1" – Deep Jan 11 '16 at 15:21
  • sudo apt-get install libappindicator1 ? Did running this command install libappindicator1 without any errors? – Raphael Jan 11 '16 at 16:30
  • Don't install Google Chrome from the repository. It might be old. Use the .deb from the website. Just for convenience: google.com/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html – dat tutbrus Jan 11 '16 at 16:33

Ok first of all update Ubuntu's software repositories by using the command after opening the terminal

sudo apt-get update

After that download the .deb file of google chrome from here


After that just double click the downloaded file it should open the Ubuntu software Center and the installation will take place.

I think it should work.Try it once..:) After the installation you can open google chrome using the command in terminal

You can try apt-get --no-install-recommends install pkgname. This installs without suggests.. You can install the suggests (dependencies) for a single package installation by using apt-get -o APT::Install-Suggests="true" install pkgname.
