How to Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu Linux

Google Chrome is my favorite browser when I use Windows.  But until recently it has been unavailable on Linux.  Here are step by step instructions for installing chrome on Ubuntu:

First update your software repositories to include google chrome:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following two lines for Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) Users

deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main

For ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) Users add the following two lines

deb karmic main
deb-src karmic main

save and exit the file

Now add the GPG key using the following command

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5

Update source list

sudo apt-get update

Install chromium browser using the following command

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

If you want to open chromium go to Applications->Internet->Chromium Web Browser
