Installing Google Chrome in Ubuntu
Google Chrome not released yet for Linux, but there’s other way to install google chrome inside ubuntu by using wine. And this is the tutorial to install Google Chrome in Ubuntu by using Wine.
sudo apt-get install wine
wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetrickssudo cp winetricks /usr/sbin
3. You need to install some chrome dependency software like flash player like riched20 riched30 flash
You can install allfonts if you want(this is only an optional software): winetricks allfonts
4. After successfully installed all things that you need to install, you can download the google chrome now by typing;
Exec=env WINEPREFIX=”/home/jonathan/.wine” wine “C:\\windows\\profiles\\jonathan\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe”
to make it look like this:
Exec=env WINEPREFIX=”/home/mimir/.wine” wine “C:\\windows\\profiles\\jonathan\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe” –new-http –in-process-plugins
Save the file!
NOTE: jonathan is my username, you will have something like /home/yourusername/.wine
7. Now, go to your desktop and start your google chrome!
Exec=env WINEPREFIX=”/home/jonathan/.wine” wine “C:\\windows\\profiles\\jonathan\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe” –new-http –in-process-plugins”
There’s some simple problem solve with this problem, you can use the command line like this:
wine “/home/user/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/user/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe” –new-http –in-process-plugins &
(replace “user” with your account)
Well… That’s all of my tutorial, special thanks to myscienceisbetter.info who provide the tutorial. And enjoy your google chrome…
HTTPS Note: it seems that the https is not working due to the fact that wine is missing TSL/SSL features, the dlls that should handle that being just stubs at the moment. If you can solve this things or know how to fix this problem, please share in here.
