How to Install Google Chrome in Ubuntu 11.10(64 bit)......Worked for me.... muhibuk31 10/17/11 11:08 AM
1) Download Chrome from www.google.com/chrome....Remember the folder you saved in

2) Open Terminal by pressing ctrl+alt+t...

3) Run this
sudo apt-get install libnspr4-0d libnss3-1d libxss1 libcurl3

4) Run this mandatory command
sudo dpkg -i './Downloads/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb'

Now Google Chrome is successfully installed and you can search it in the search box.....

Thanks to Luke Woods.....I was able to install it on my computer......I don't know yet if it works for 32 bit......if it does please post it here.....

Worked for me with 32 bit- just substituted the amd64 part in step 4 with i386, and sorted! Was having no luck any other way, so thanks muhibuk31!

It was good of you to thank me (kind of..) but I don't see why you had to re-post what I already posted. and why did you butcher it so badly? I spent a lot of time researching and working on getting this to work and posting the3 best I could, a step by step solution.

I didn't want to confuse anyone and I feel your post does just that, I am sorry to have to say it that way but I have had friends in the community contact me about this post and I felt obligated to post on here.

Good luck and I hope they fix the Chrome problem soon.

I don't have any complaints about the confusion. And besides some of friends have had same problem and they couldn't find anything on the internet and I found your article on the 10th or 11th page of google search results. I told my friends that i will post the solution just search for my user name on google  and you will the solution. And I really hope they solve this problem really soon. You are welcome, I had to thank you for solving my problem, I hope thats not a problem for you....;)

Somebody please help me!

I am not very computer savvy, but have followed all of the above instructions. Every time, however, I get the same error message.

g@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg -i './Downloads/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb'
[sudo] password for g:
dpkg: error processing ./Downloads/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb (--install):
 package architecture (amd64) does not match system (i386)
Errors were encountered while processing:
 ./Downloads/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
g@ubuntu:~$


I really have no idea what else to do.

If it helps, I am running 11.10 as a VM. Doing so as this is my first foray into Ubuntu and wanted to be sure before I sack off Microsoft.

Thanks in advance.

@hudson36.....its because you have a 32bit computer and you are trying to download the 64bit version...go on google chrome's website and download the version that says i386 instead of amd64 and try the directions above then....let me know after you have done that

just run this:

sudo apt-get install libnss3-1d libxss1 libcurl3

so it can works for 32bit...
just tested it,
enjoy it! :p
