I want to experiment with the App Runtime for Chrome (ARC) in Google Chrome in order to see if Android applications can run easily in Ubuntu Touch. In order to do this, I first need to install Google Chrome. Given that this is merely an experiment and that I am not concerned with having to reflash my device (Aquaris E4.5), how can this be done?

At a quick guess, could Chrome be installed on Ubuntu Touch in the following way?

wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
sudo su -c 'DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb'
rm google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

Following this, an XMir launcher would likely be needed to run Chrome. How could this be written?


EDIT: Please note that I'm talking about desktop Chrome running on Ubuntu Touch, not mobile Chrome.

Well the answer is you cant , cause it is not supported for neither your device nor any ubuntu phone. And by the way you cant install 64bit package in a arm system.Sorry for that!

I tried that ARC welder in Google Chrome but all in vain it never works flawlessly , developers have to work more upon it!If you are trying to run some android app , give a shot to Genymotion.

Cheers!
