Do you want install chrome on linux? Google Chrome is definitely one of the most popular web browsers in the world no matter who likes it. Debian is also a great Linux distribution and one of the pioneers in this world of free software.
For this couple of things, both the Google Chrome browser and the Debian distribution they are used a lot(Although many of us prefer other browsers such as Chromium, Opera, Firefox ...).
For all this, today I bring you a something different item what we are used to, since instead of news I bring you a small tutorial, to be able to install Google Chrome in Debian through the command line.
Steps to follow to install Chrome on Linux
- We open the terminal of Debian.
- Let's download Google Chrome package first directly from google.com, for this we type the following command:
- It tienes 32 bit:
wget -c https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb -O chrome32.deb
- If instead, you use 64 bit:
wget -c https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb -O chrome64.deb
- It tienes 32 bit:
- Now let's unzip the package that we just downloaded, for this we type the following command if you have 32 bits(If you have 64 bits you will have to change Chrome32 to Chrome64 and it would be the same:
sudo dpkg -i chrome32.deb
The truth is that it is a fairly simple task and the browser that we have downloaded has been tested and works perfectly. In case there is a problem, I have prepared a video which you can see at the top of this article, in which I personally enter these commands in a Debian virtual machine and check that it works correctly.
This method also works with GNU / Linux distributions based on Debian, such as the famous Ubuntu and therefore Ubuntu-based ones too. In other distributions the commands to download, unzip and install Chrome and other packages vary depending on the distribution, but the rationale is the same.
