How To Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu 13.10

Google Chrome is not in any of the Ubuntu repositories, but luckily it is not too hard to install it on Ubuntu.

First we will need to download the latest stable versions.

Download 32 bit version using command line

$ wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
Download 64 bit version using command line

$ wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

There is a prerequisite for chrome, so we need to install it as well.

$ sudo apt-get install libcurl3

Type the following command to install 32 bit version:

$ sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb

Type the following command to install 64 bit version:

$ sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

There is a possibility you may receive an  “errors were encountered while processing” error, here is how to correct it and get Chrome to install.

$ sudo apt-get -f install

And that is all there is to it, Google Chrome should be available and ready to use.
