How To Add Google Chrome to Linux Mint-12


Two browsers are better than one.  It will enable you to test web sites and check on browser based issues or incapabilities.  Under Windows we get Internet Explorer and with Linux we get Firefox as the default, which I normally use as my default in both Windows and Linux.  But how about a second browser like Google's Chrome?

The following code was found at itworld.com on installing Google Chrome on Linux Mint-12.  Thank you very much itworld.

Copy and paste the following command into a Terminal window and enter "y" for all requests:
    wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable
      Hope this helps,
      Steve
