I just clean install Ubuntu 16.04 on my machine, and as usual I set it up to work, installing applications I usually use etc. Then I install Google Chrome, downloading the package from Chrome Download Page, and installed it with gdebi.
But when I tried to find chrome from dash, there is no icon of chrome showing up. I tried with
sudo apt-get install -f, even
sudo apt-get purge google-chrome-stable then reinstall it, and this is what I got:

But still it is not showing up in dash. When I tried Alt+F2 and type google-chrome, it is here, both
I do not know what I did wrongly or what the problem is up to now, and I don't even know how to fix it.
Do anyone of you encounter this problem? If so do anyone of you know how to fix it or even what appears to be the problem?
Nb: Apparently chrome didn't even shows up on gnome fallback application list and lubuntu application list (I installed the two alternative desktop just in case unity didn't work or I just need the computer to consume less ram on ram-demanding tasks by switching to either lubuntu or gnome fallback)
Also, possible duplicate, I found this question here. Is it the same problem I have? Because other applications I install from gdebi previously just works and are shown on dash and application lists on other desktop environments, so I think that is not the case. But if it is, please let me know.
Thanks in advance.
