How to install Chrome browser properly via command line?

1

Setting up and managing an Ubuntu server all by myself, in coming months, is a part of my current plans. Hence, I am planning a swtich from Windows to Linux - - Ubuntu. I now need to get some grip on the command line, since I am all used to Windows' GUI.

Anyway... the most obvious start is installing apps on my computer, and I thought I should learn to do it via CLI. And this is what I did:

$ apt-cache search chrome browser

the results showed that the proper term is "chrome-browser," so...

$ sudo apt-get install chrome-browser

And then "Y" for the Y/n question.

But the installation threw errors. (I do not have my PC at hand, so can't mention what error exactly.) Does someone see anything wrong with the commands I issued? I am probably missing some command(s) in between, I...

Google Chrome isn’t in the repositories – however, Chromium is.

To install Google Chrome, run the following:

sudo apt-get install libxss1 libappindicator1 libindicator7
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb

For 32-bit systems user can use this code:

sudo apt-get install libxss1 libappindicator1 libindicator7
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb

If error messages pop up after running the command sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb then run the command

sudo apt-get install -f

and then re-run the previous command. The error messages mentioned should include something similar to

google-chrome-stable depends on [lib-example]; however; Package [lib-example] is not installed.

This installs a needed library for Google Chrome, then downloads the latest version of...

For new users who are just starting out with Ubuntu and want to install Google Chrome browser, here’s the quickest way to do it. There are many ways to install Google Chrome in Ubuntu. Some prefer going directly to Google Chrome download page and getting the deb installer.

Others prefer to install it via PPA from the Chromium build. I prefer downloading it via the command line using wget command and installing it. The command line method is the quickest and this is what this post is about to show you.

As you may already know, Google Chrome has gone from nothing to one of the most popular web browsers. In fact, it’s my favorite web browser. I started with Internet Explorer, then moved to Firefox and I’ve finally switched to Google Chrome.

I am not telling you to switch, but if you want Chrome in Ubuntu, then go and get it.

To get started with Chrome, you have few options. First you can use Firefox and go to Chrome download page and download a copy there....

Google Chrome isn't in the repositories - however, Chromium is.

Google Chrome is only available for 64-bit Linux. I've included directions for 64 below.

To install Google Chrome, run the following:

sudo apt-get install libxss1 libappindicator1 libindicator7 wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i google-chrome*.deb

There are two actions, they are dpkg-query and dpkg-deb.

Install a package

# sudo dpkg -i {package_name} # sudo dpkg -i skype-ubuntu-precise_4.2.0.11-1_i386.deb

Remove a package

# sudo dpkg -r {package_name} # sudo dpkg -r vlc

Remove a package and its configuration files

# sudo dpkg -P {package_name} # sudo dpkg -P vlc

List all installed packages.

You can pipe the command to less (a pager) so you can more easily scroll the content:

# dpkg -l | less

Check if the package is installed or not

# dpkg -l {package_name} # dpkg -l vlc

Check if the package is installed or not, and if it is, launch it:

# dpkg -l | vlc

See whether a package is installed or not

And this will show the location where the package will be installed. Here -S (capital S) to search whether the package was installed or not.

# sudo dpkg -S {package_name} # sudo dpkg -S skype

Install a *.deb package from a specified location

Google chrome‘s “application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)” error have some temporary fixes.Google chrome (chrome.exe) did not work for me initially, and I got the Google chrome error

“The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).Click on OK to terminate the application.”

I was disappointed and doing a search revealed that several people were reporting the same problem on various windows platforms including windows vista SP1, windows XP3 or windows XP2.So the error seem to have been triggered in different versions of windows vista and windows XP platforms and it is not specific to any one of them.Also, the bug was reportedly caused by “Symantec Endpoint Protection“, though in my case, I was not using any symantec product.

A command-line interface or command language interpreter (CLI), also known as command-line user interface, console user interface,[1] and character user interface (CUI), is a means of interacting with a computer program where the user (or client) issues commands to the program in the form of successive lines of text (command lines).

The CLI was the primary means of interaction with most computer systems until the introduction of the video display terminal in the mid-1960s, and continued to be used throughout the 1970s and 1980s on OpenVMS, Unix systems and personal computer systems including MS-DOS, CP/M and Apple DOS. The interface is usually implemented with a command line shell, which is a program that accepts commands as text input and converts commands to appropriate operating system functions.

Command-line interfaces to computer operating systems are less widely used by casual computer users, who favor graphical user interfaces.

Chromebooks aren’t “just a browser” — they’re Linux laptops. You can easily install a full Linux desktop alongside Chrome OS and instantly switch between the two with a hotkey — no rebooting necessary.

We performed this process with the $249 Samsung Chromebook, also known as the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook. If you have another Chromebook, read on anyway — it’s the same process.

Crouton vs. ChrUbuntu

Installing Ubuntu Linux on your Chromebook isn’t as simple as installing the standard Ubuntu system — at least not at the moment. You’ll need to choose a project developed specially for your Chromebook. There are two popular options:

ChrUbuntu: ChrUbuntu is a Ubuntu system built for Chromebooks. It works like a traditional dual-boot system. You can restart your Chromebook and choose between Chrome OS and Ubuntu at boot time.

Sorry, penguin lovers — if you thought that 2015, in the heinous wake of Windows 8, would finally be the year of desktop Linux, you were sadly mistaken. Microsoft is trying its best to make make amends with Windows 10, to ensure it’s the dream OS for billions of people around the world who use a desktop PC with a mouse and keyboard — and, as a result, this means Microsoft is going to ship Windows 10 with a package manager. Yes, in Windows 10 you can open up a command line shell and install VLC or Firefox or thousands of other packages by typing in a single command.

If you’ve ever ventured into the dark and mysterious land of Linutopia, where Ubutologists and Debianites reign, you will have noticed that one of the things that Linux users are most proud of is package management. While Windows and Mac users have to run graphical installers — you know, where you hit Next a few times and try to avoid installing bundled crapware — Linux users can just open up a command line and...

I sometimes find the Java setup on my various Apple devices to be a mystery.

Recently, I was trying to get a Java applet to run in the same way on 2 iMacs and my MacBook Air. The applet is a simple vpn client from Juniper that lets me access a Citrix Desktop from any Mac that I can install the Citrix receiver client on so I can work on 'Company stuff' from a large screen iMac when I'm sat at home or from my MacBook when I'm on the road (it works fine over 3/4G).
