First download the package from google itself, change directory location to where the chrome package is stored, in my case is Downloads.
$ su
password: (root password)
# dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
# exit
$ google-chrome-stable.



im 32 bit user please help

gdeb -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
bash: gdeb: command not found


Lubos Rendek Mod -> aziz sa

not gdeb but gdebi! You are missing the “i” :slight_smile:



for anyone having the libappindicator1 dependency problem just update your sources list and perform an apt-get update then dpkg -i to install chrome and apt-get -f to install dependency
