I just reinstalled Ubuntu 15.10 on my laptop, so I want to install Google Chrome. First time, it was installed by Ubuntu Software Center which I downloaded deb file from official Google Chrome website, but it don't have any response when I launch the Google Chrome from terminal or search app by super key. I already tried to install by terminal via PPA:

deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

It still don't have any response.

I had tried to start app by terminal it didn't launch any thing and don't have any error like this.

ps. tell me if you want more details

  • By default google-chrome will only run under the normal user. Running as root is not allowed. – Gayan Weerakutti Apr 6 '16 at 8:49

Install Google Chrome from a terminal using the following method - open a terminal and execute:

echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list  
wget -q -O - https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -  
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable  

In case you receive an apt-get update error ... you can ignore it - once Google Chrome is installed, the settings get overwritten and the error will not occur and be displayed from now on anymore.

Launch Google Chrome as a normal user and not as root like you did according to the screenshot.

Update addressing your response that you still cannot launch Google Chrome web browser:

Make sure that you are logged in to the normal user account and do everything as a normal user.

1.) Delete the folder /home/your-user-name/.config/google-chrome.

2.) Uninstall Google Chrome: sudo apt-get purge google-chrome-stable.

3.) Reinstall Google Chrome: sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable.

You can download .deb file of chrome from https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html And install directly
