So I understand that the "right way" to get google chrome is to simply hit the button to download and install it from their web page. That said I like the idea of having all my basic setup requirements in a script so that if I ever have to start on a fresh install of Ubuntu I can simply run that script and have all my favorite software. That said when I took the bash commands listed here and put them in a script (as seen below) running the script as sudo user did not result in google-chrome-stable installing... What gives?
wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add - sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list' apt-get update apt-get install google-chrome-stable -y
I ran the script by typing it's fully qualified location into the terminal.
