Thread: why can't i install google chrome?

  1. #1

    Default why can't i install google chrome?

    every time i run the 64bit .rpm file i get an error:

    [PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.P7eMir] Repository already exists.

    chrome is not currently installed. running kde 4 on suse 11.4, 64bit. i'm having a problem with firefox with web pages with embedded youtube videos. i don't know how to describe it, all the "buttons" (e.g. play/pauge, volume etc) flicker in white blocks and it's really weird. anyone else know of this problem? firefox 4 by the way.

    thanks for any help!

    Ross.

    hi,

    sorry for the delay, didn't realise there was a reply:

    ross@linux-ej1d:~> zypper lr 4
    Alias : PK_TMP_DIR
    Name : PK_TMP_DIR
    URI : dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.12SYtW
    Enabled : Yes
    Priority : 99
    Auto-refresh : On
    Keep Packages : Off
    Type : plaindir
    GPG Check : On
    GPG Key URI :
    Path Prefix :
    Parent Service :
    MD Cache Path : /var/cache/zypp/raw/PK_TMP_DIR



    i just tried installing it through the command line and seemed to install ok (after i had to install something called lsb)....but it said at the end "NO KEY"

    it's appeared in my menu but when i click on the icon, the bouncing icon by the mouse cursor just keeps bouncing and the programme doesn't load. went into yast and it then listed chrome as installed, went update and it updated ok but still no success in loading it. i can't try to open it through command line as i don't know the command for it...?

    thanks

    went into the application icon to find the command, typed this into command line:

    ross@linux-ej1d:~> /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U
    /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    managed to get it working:

    typed the above command into console and got libpng error (think you were posting as i was typing it! lol). then went into yast, typed libpng and sure enough that one it tried loading wasn't installed. installed it and job done.

    thanks for your help really appreciated. now to see if all the extensions work, embedded videos etc.

    cheers,

    Ross.
