Thread: I can't install Google Chrome

  1. #1

    Default I can't install Google Chrome

    I got the rpm from Chrome's site installed but when I try to run it the icon bounces under the pointer for a 10 seconds then it just stops. I try to run it through the terminal but I get
    Code:
    google-chrome
    /usr/bin/google-chrome: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    So I saw some suggestions online and tried to install the libpng it was talking about and get this:
    Code:
    sudo zypper in libpng12.so.0
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'libpng12.so.0' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
    'libpng12-0-32bit' providing 'libpng12.so.0' is already installed.
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    Nothing to do.
    I'm probably doing something obviously wrong. I've just started using OpenSUSE.

    try:

    sudo zypper in libpng12-0

    Remember that with zypper you install a package, not a file - you
    specified the library filename rather than the package. :-)

    Can you issue this command:

    locate libpng12.so.0
    The only problem with troubleshooting is that sometimes trouble shoots back.

    Hi,

    Do you have a 32 bit or 64 bit system ? Do you installed the right package for your arch ?

    That doesn't return anything.
    Code:
    eduardo@linux-ubxi:~> locate libpng12.so.0

    I have a 64bit system. I checked the info in YaST and it says it's x86_64.

    And finally, if all that fails, unless there is a particular Google app you want to access which requires Chrome, install chromium from the OBS.
