Re: Google Chrome Stable

AS for Iceweasel 4.0beta, you should set up some sort of experimental #! repo for stuff you are considering for the release so people can provide feedback on whether it is good for them.

There's already a statler-dev repo that packages are tested in before moving to the main repo.

Re: Google Chrome Stable

Bump! Sorry, but I didn't want to start a new topic about Chrome. Is it still in the repos? Can't seem to find it....

Re: Google Chrome Stable

I find the combination of $BROWSER and the word "stable" in a post-2008 context amusing.

Does "aptitude hold google-chrome-stable" prevent apt-get dist-upgrade from installing chrome when it is in the statler-repository? I prefer opera 11 btw.

Thank you!

If you choose to download the .deb package directly from http://www.google.com/chrome I belive it automagically adds the repository upon installation. I may be wrong though. I didn't check my sources before and after installation.

Thanks! I ended up adding up the repo.
Had trouble with a .deb package wich failed to install correctly, so I decided to play it safe this time.

Re: Google Chrome Stable

I love me some chrome

I was not able to use the command:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

is this dated? i may not have been thorough enough with reading through this thread. The error appeared to be in finding google-chrome-stable

also, the command:

deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main

yielded an error, where my terminal did not recognize the "deb"

Am I missing something here?

BUT, my issue has been [RESOLVED], as I do have Google Chrome installed and it is my default browser. Downloading it straight from www.google.com worked out great!  Since this issue had been resolved before my posting, I am unsure of how to pull up a history log on my terminal. Sorry about not giving exact errors.

Great thread guys, thanks!

Re: Google Chrome Stable

Did you have the repository set up before running that first command? It isn't in the default sources list, at least not in Waldorf images. You would then get a 'no installation candidate' error.

I did not, looks like I will need to find out which repos I need to setup for future projects, thank you! smile

Me TOO, in fact, in my EARLIEST Linux noob days, I would not even try a distro that did not have Google-Chrome included.  Now that I have learned how to download and install it, I have no worries.  Today, when I installed CrunchBang, Google-Chrome was not default, but it was included in the menu to EASILY install without having to go to the web page download.

Re: Google Chrome Stable

I'm trying to install Google Chrome stable on my statler 10 #! install, but keep getting the following error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 google-chrome-stable : Depends: gconf-service but it is not installable
                        Depends: libgconf-2-4 (>= 2.31.1) but it is not installable
                        Depends: libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 (>= 2.22.0) but it is not installable
                        Depends: libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.24.0) but 2.20.1-2 is to be installed
                        Depends: libnspr4 (>= 1.8.0.10) but it is not going to be installed

E: Broken packages

It doesn't matter if I try to install using Apt-get, Synaptic, or by downloading the .deb package from Google and installing the package. The results are always the same. sad

Re: Google Chrome Stable

Hachiman, you can either upgrade to Waldorf (or newer) or use the older Chromium in your Squeeze repos. smile Google has decided not to develop against very old/stale distros like Debian Old-Stable or RedHat/CentOS because they do not satisfy the dependencies.

Re: Google Chrome Stable

Anyone else having mouse cursor problems with Chrome lately? I've been running Chrome stable on waldorf forever and never had any issues before the past week or so. First I was getting CPU spikes (which didn't show up as Chrome processes, but seemed to go away when I killed it) and random Chrome lock-ups. So after trying several other things I uninstalled Chrome stable and downloaded and installed the beta version instead. That fixed the CPU spikes and lock-ups! But then my mouse cursor started misbehaving. Specifically it would stop updating after the first hover on a page (so it would stay a pointer even over links, or stay a text insertion cursor after leaving a field, etc.). I figured that was just a problem with the beta version, so I reluctantly uninstalled that and then reinstalled stable. But the cursor problem remains! I've cleared the browser cache and cookies, turned off all extensions, etc. and that doesn't fix it. But I know that something like that must be the culprit because I do not have this problem if I use incognito mode.

Anyone else experience anything like this, and even better did you resolve it?

Nevermind - this is a Synergy bug.

Ah! sad Well, since the computer in question will not boot from a USB and the optical drive does not recognize DVD's (because it's a Sony with proprietary drivers), I'll have to stick with Chromium on that machine. *unhappy sigh*


Thanks for the info, Snowpine.

Hachiman, there a couple of ways to workaround the DVD size, for example netinstall and fiddling with the Waldorf iso... wink
