My Install Google Chrome in Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 article was just published on October 19th. Installing Google Chrome in Kubuntu isn’t much different.
Just yesterday I published the How to install Chromium via Konsole in Kubuntu 10.10article, dealing with the installation of Chromium software from the shell or console.
If you don’t like the default web browser (rekonq) loaded with Kubuntu and KDE, Konsole makes it easy to install other options.
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 google-chrome-stable
then press the [enter] key. This will install Google’s Chrome, Web Browser.
Again, see how easy it is to use Linux.
FYI: These steps should also work for Ubuntu.
