Gone are the days where you had to find a hack to install chrome on ubuntu. Google now officially provide *.deb package for installation on Ubuntu ( and *.rpm for fedora).
Step#1 Download the google package
Go to this link https://www.google.com/intl/en_in/chrome/ and click on download
Once you click on “Accept and Install”, following pop up will come.
Step#2 Install the package
If you have chosen to open with software package, once download is completed, it will open with software installer, as shown below
If you want to install it later, simply double click on google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb file and it will open with software installer, just like windows.
If you want to install using terminal use following commands. Run second command only if there are errors with unresolved dependencies.
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64 sudo apt-get install -f
