Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu 9.10

Make sure your computer internet connection is connected

First let your Ubuntu know where it should find chromium-browser deb package:


$sudo pico /etc/apt/sources.list

add the following lines:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main


Replace jaunty with hardy, intrepid or karmic depending which version you run at your computer. If you feel this information is not sufficient for you, follow this link to get Ubuntu official information on this matter or follow Launchpad help.

The next step is to install Chromium browser on your terminal:

$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

or
$sudo aptitude install chromium-browser
Once you press enter Ubuntu will download around 18 MB of data from launchpad’s server and will install Chromium with gnome menu entries and shortcuts. Now you can go to System menu –> Internet –> Chromium Web Browser in order to launch Google browser.
