Ok I have browsed all the other google chrome install things but all them have not helped me. Most say sudo apt-get install -f or sudo apt-get -f install But that does not work for me. I get the following spew:

Note that the message says the problem is google-chrome-stable depends on libappindicator1; however: Package libappindicator1 is not installed. Normally, sudo apt-get -f install is how'd you fix this, but since that's not working for you, you can manually fix it with sudo apt-get install libappindicator1.

have you tried sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade before installing chrome?

if so install libappindicator1 first such as sudo apt-get install libappindicator1 then install chrome.
