The “Install Google Chrome in Debian GNU/Linux 5.0” was just written on October 19th. Installing Google Chrome in Kubuntu isn’t much different.
Just yesterday the article “How to install Chromium via Konsole in Kubuntu 10.10” talked about install 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.
Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. – http://www.google.com/chrome
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.
