Google Chromium install on Ubuntu Karmic x64

December 4, 2009

I love Chrome on Windows, and Chromium is useable now on Linux. It’s fast, and I find it pretty stable. Flash works on my Karmic x64, but can be buggy sometimes.

That said, here is how you do it:

First you need edit /etc/apt/sources.list file

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following two lines

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

save and exit the file

Now add the GPG key using the following command

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5

Update source list

sudo apt-get update

Install chromium browser using the following command

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

This will complete the installation and you should have an icon for Chromium in the Internet group on the applications menu.

Thanks to Ubuntu Geek for this information.
