One of the easiest ways to install software is to do so from the shell or console.
In Kubuntu (specifically KDE), the console is spelled out as Konsole.
If you don’t like the default web browser (rekonq) loaded with Kubuntu and KDE, Konsole makes it easy to install other options.
Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web. – The Chromium Projects – Chromium
To install the Chromium Browser via the Konsole:
- Hit Alt+F2 on you keyboard.
- In the “Run Command” dialog, type: “konsole” and hit the [enter] key.
- Then you will type the following code:
sudo apt-get update
then press the [enter] key. This will update the list of packages available for installation.
- Finally, type the following code:
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser chromium-browser-l10n
then press the [enter] key. This will install the Chromium Browser and the Language Files.
All done! See, I told you Konsole makes it easy.
FYI: These steps should also work for Ubuntu.
