Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu or Kubuntu Debian Linux deb

Google ChromeGoolge Chrome is a kick ass browser that is taking the browsing industry by storm. Its stunning speed has been winning users over since it’s initial launch.

Linux enthusiasts have also been adapting to the ever updated Google Chrome, which recently was put into official “Beta” natively for Linux. I’ve previously wrote how to install the rpm on openSUSE and Fedora but now it’s time for the guide on installing on Ubuntu or Kubuntu.

This procedure is quite simple, and starts with downloading the .deb package from http://chrome.google.com.
Chrome

Once you download the package to your local file-system you can install it using dpkg, or by double clicking the package within your file manager. To install via the command line, open up a terminal and install using:

sudo dpkg –install google-chrome-beta_current_i386.deb

Note: You can see an example below.
Chrome Install

This installation will also add the google repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list for future updates of google chrome.

Installing Google Chrome – openSUSE Fedora Repository RPM

Charter Communications . newark airport . jewelry stores . state bar of texas . limos . atlantic storage . maine mall . moving storage . So I decided to write up a little installation using Google’s repository and zypper (zypper for opensuse and yum for fedora).To setup the repository in openSUSE add the repository with:

sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/`uname -i` google-chrome
You can then install google chrome with:
sudo zypper in google-chrome-beta
orsudo zypper in google-chrome-unstableUnstable are snapshot builds of Chrome, whereas Beta are more structured and tested released milestones.If you have any questions, or get any errors running this please let me know.I’m currently running version Google Chrome Beta 4.0.249.43, and while writing this the current unstable version is 4.0.266.0)

Chrome and Opera usage expands at the expense of IE

In the latest trending release from marketshare.net an interesting market share hit to IE and Safari took place in the month of November. Here are some statistics from Jan 2009 to Nov 2009. You can see that Opera is nearly flat for the year, while Chrome has had over a 150% increase in usage, and the biggest drops come from IE, and month over month a pretty small decrease from Safari. I’m really going to be interested in seeing how the 2009 metrics look, since many of those should have been seen from Cyber Monday Deals. storage unit . engagement ring .

Chrome Beta for Linux 4.0.249.30 on openSUSE

I forgot my laptop at home today, so I was unable to install Chrome while I was at work. condos for rent . (yes, that’s an embarrassing story). wds . But now I’ve gotten home and installed the RPM using zypper: sudo zypper in google-chrome-beta_current_`uname -i`.rpmAfter doing this, I launched Chrome using google-chrome and it put a smile in my face just knowing that it was in “beta”. Now lets hope that Google can get out of their 100 year beta cycle, and have a “stable” version out by mid next year. Here’s a screenshot of the version, and version vs the most recent chromium via the Contrib Standard RepositoryChromeChromierYou can read more about the release, and download it from: http://www.benkevan.com/blog/google-chrome-goes-beta-for-linux-opensuse-fedora-ubuntu-debian/

Google Chrome goes Beta for Linux – openSUSE Fedora Ubuntu Debian

Google Chrome

Today Google has annonced that Google Chrome is now in Beta for Linux thanks to the continued work and testing from the Chromium Project.

You can see a funny comic about the release which was inspired by xkcd.com here:
http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/w00t.html

You can download the .deb and .rpm packages from:
http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?hl=en&brand=CHFK

And the main google chrome page can be found here:
http://www.google.com/chrome?hl=en&platform=linux&brand=CHFK

Here is their official statement via e-mail:


Hello everybody out there using Linux –

Google Chrome is go for beta on Linux! Thanks to the many Chromium and WebKit developers who helped make Google Chrome a lean, mean browsing machine. Here are a few fun facts from us on the Google Chrome for Linux team:

60,000 lines of Linux-specific code written
23 developer builds
2,713 Linux-specific bugs fixed
12 external committers and bug editors to the Google Chrome for Linux code base, 48 external code contributors

Thanks for waiting and we hope that you enjoy using Google Chrome!

Google Chrome Team

Great job to all those who tested and helped Chrome become what it has, with emphasis on the developers and the continued maintainers of Chromium for Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu.


Chromium Browser Build Service by DBUCK

All, Build Service User DBUCK has built a chromium build service repository: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dbuck/If you have a previous version that I had built, feel free to un-install, then add the appropriate repository from dbuck:For users on openSUSE 11.2:sudo zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dbuck/openSUSE_Factory/ ChromiumFor users on openSUSE 11.1:sudo zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dbuck/openSUSE_11.1/ ChromiumFor users on openSUSE 11.0:sudo zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dbuck/openSUSE_11.1/ ChromiumThere is a difference from the packages that dbuck is providing and the ones I previously build. Previously I was building just released packages which were branded chrome, and not chromium. Since these packages are being pulled from svn they are considered part of the chromium project, hence the name chromium-browser. tree service seattle . georgia state . earn points . Once adding the repository above, you can install using: sudo zypper in chromium-browseryou can launch runningchromium-browserThanks dbuck for doing this..

Call for Help: Please someone test the 64-Bit version as this is the first that will not be linked to the 32-Bit libraries. I do not have access to a 64-Bit machine, and need to verify what libraries it’s trying to call, so I can make sure they are linked right in the RPM’s form here on out. Thank you for the help ahead of time, and looking forward to giving a nice solid 64-Bit release

Note: If you get dependency errors please add --nodeps

Due to popular demand I’ve included the symlinks in the build of the rpm package (I’ve tested the 32-bit but not the 64 bit).

If the above rpm installs, but does not run because of a missing library please let me know what libraries it says it’s missing (this is very key with the 64-Bit build).

Also within this build I did a post script to include PARTIAL flash support (assuming your flash is installed as /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so) If you have other locations please let me know, and I can change this and look for the file prior to linking it, but too lazy for now).

You can start google chrome with flash support using:
google-chrome --enable-plugins

Again please test the 64-Bit and let me know what libraries it’s trying to link too.. Someone with a base build of the 64-Bit Install would be great (also someone with only KDE 4 installed, that’d be great to see if it’s requiring some GTK libraries.. Damn, I really need me a 64-Bit machine..

Due to popular demand I’ve included the symlinks in the build of the rpm package (I’ve tested the 32-bit but not the 64 bit).

I added Requires: gconf2-32bit in the .spec file for RPM’s, but again I wasn’t able to test it since I do not have access to a 64-Bit Box (I’m cheap.. I know.. I can’t afford a new box).. Please someone test and let me know if all worked fine.

Changes:For 64-Bit I have linked the required libraries previously needed by the 32-Bit libgconf-2 packages to the libraries in /opt/google/chrome/lib32. However, I do not have a 64-bit machine to test on, so can someone please test and comment?

If the above rpm installs, but does not run because of a missing library, you can run the following commands:
for i in libsmime3.so libnssutil3.so libnss3.so libssl3.so; do sudo ln -s /usr/lib/$i /usr/lib/$i.1d; done
and
for i in libplds4.so libplc4.so libnspr4.so ; do sudo ln -s /usr/lib/$i /usr/lib/$i.0d; done

You can start google chrome with flash support using:
google-chrome --enable-plugins

NOTE: Once I get the .spec to work correctly and install the required 32-bit gconf2 packages, then I will go ahead and start the build service.. so please someone test and let me know if it works. I’ll need some pointers with this.. as I’m not sure of the package name.. and I don’t have a x86_64 box available.. right now.

Note: Sorry for the delay.. I actually purchased my first house and was moving for the last 5 days.. boy do I ever hate moving

If the above rpm installs, but does not run because of a missing library, you can run the following commands:
for i in libsmime3.so libnssutil3.so libnss3.so libssl3.so; do sudo ln -s /usr/lib/$i /usr/lib/$i.1d; done
and
for i in libplds4.so libplc4.so libnspr4.so ; do sudo ln -s /usr/lib/$i /usr/lib/$i.0d; done

Also within this build I did a post script to include PARTIAL flash support (assuming your flash is installed as /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so) If you have other locations please let me know, and I can change this and look for the file prior to linking it, but too lazy for now).

You can start google chrome with flash support using:
google-chrome --enable-plugins

Google Chrome 3.0.194.3 Released – openSUSE RPM

To follow updates I will provide for Chrome RPM packages please bookmark or check:

Google Chrome

The newest release of the Chrome Unstable browser is upon us.. I’m not sure what fixes this build brings us, but I know we still don’t have basic features like plugins etc.

Here is more information if you want full change logs:
http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel

I’ve made some rpm’s to make it easier for you to install on openSUSE:

The files are located here:
http://www.benkevan.com/upload/software/google-chrome-unstable-3.0.194.3-1.i386.rpm
http://www.benkevan.com/upload/software/google-chrome-unstable-3.0.194.3-1.x86_64.rpm

You can install using:
x86_64:
sudo rpm -Uvh http://www.benkevan.com/upload/software/google-chrome-unstable-3.0.194.3-1.x86_64.rpm --nodeps

i386:
sudo rpm -Uvh http://www.benkevan.com/upload/software/google-chrome-unstable-3.0.194.3-1.i386.rpm --nodeps

You may still have to do:
for i in libsmime3.so libnssutil3.so libnss3.so libssl3.so; do sudo ln -s /usr/lib/$i /usr/lib/$i.1d; done
and
for i in libplds4.so libplc4.so libnspr4.so ; do sudo ln -s /usr/lib/$i /usr/lib/$i.0d; done
(I had done this previously.. so didn’t test.. sorry people).

This build is quite a bit better then the previous builds.. I haven’t yet tested flash on the latest build, but I plan to shortly.

I’m actually on vacation.. so sorry about the delay and lack of blogging.. Going to check out the Wildlife Safari in Oregon (I’ve been before). I forgot my camera, so I won’t really get to blog with newer pics, but will use some of the older pics I took 2 years ago.
