Install Google Chrome in Kali Linux:

 

From our previous post (How to Install Google Chrome in Kali Linux? – Part 1 – Discussion)we know that we can install Google Chrome in two different ways:

  1. Download and Install .deb package from Google.
  2. Install Google Chrome by adding Google Repositories

Let’s see how they work.

If you get a GPG Key error, you can use –force

dpkg -i google-chrome-*.deb --force

This way you can install Google Chrome in Kali Linux from a .deb package. Personally, I think it’s inconvenient as you won’t be able to update it via apt-get update/upgrade. Second option is a lot better one:

Install Google Chrome by adding Official Google Repositories

Add Google GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) Keys:

Before you install add the Apt-Key

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -

  3. I created the a normal user and used gksu to launch Google Chrome as that user. However, there is an issue. There is no sound when playing YouTube videos on chrome using this method. Maybe since Google chrome is running with limited privileges, it cannot access the ‘alsa’ sound in root. Do you know any fix for this?

  4. root@localhost:~# echo “deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main” >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
    bash: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list: No such file or directory

    • help me BMO! i’ve installed chrome before. and then i uninstall back bcos there are errors in my terminal like “google-chrome.lis’ in directory ‘/etc/apt/sources.list.d/’ as it has an invalid filename extension”. I installed chrome using the .deb package. Now, i want to reinstall it but this happens (as i stated at the comment above)

  5. same dependecy problem as above when installing with apt-get

  6. dpkg: error processing google-chrome-stable (–install):
    dependency problems – leaving unconfigured
    Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils …
    Processing triggers for gnome-menus …
    Processing triggers for man-db …

    what to do :( ?

  7. Dependency problems!

    dpkg -i google-chrome-*.deb –install

    (Reading database … 323365 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to unpack google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb …
    Unpacking google-chrome-stable (45.0.2454.93-1) over (45.0.2454.93-1) …

    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of google-chrome-stable:

    Package libappindicator1 is not installed.

    apt-get install libappindicator1

    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    Package libappindicator1 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package ‘libappindicator1’ has no installation candidate

  8. why do we have to add GPG

  9. error processing package google-chrome-stable

    getting this ;;

    what to do now

  10. for those who get dependency error, try to run this

    sudo apt –fix-broken install

    it will install dependency packages and then you are done
