Thread: Google Chrome not installing

  1. #1

    Default Google Chrome not installing

    First when I try to install it it says that its not supported, but when I do a second click it lets me through. Then while installing it tells me

    A problem that we were not expecting has occurred.
    Please report this bug with the error description.

    And the error description is

    Installation aborted by user

    Except I didn't abort anything.

    Default Re: Google Chrome not installing

    a few things to try
    #1 use chromium which is basically chrome minus some google tweaks to get a full functioning chromium do:
    you need packman for mp4 support, if you have packman just do
    Code:
    sudo zypper in chromium chromium-ffmpeg chromium-pdf-plugin chromium-pepper-flash
    #2 if you really want chrome add google's repo try
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar https://www.google.com/linuxrepositories google
    sudo zypper in google-chrome
    ps I don't use any google chrome so I have not tested this.

    And please, always tell what you are doing/using, etc. There are many ways to "install it", and we can not guess which one you use.

    I tried to install it using the first method and it worked until the end then I got this.

    Code:
    David@linux-gu7v:~> sudo zypper in google-chrome
    Error building the cache:

    I did say I've never used google and I made a mistake about their repo's, remove the above repository it's wrong
    Code:
    sudo zypper rr https://www.google.com/linuxrepositories
    then add this one http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64
    refresh the repositories and install google-chrome
    Code:
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper in google-chrome
    google does not have a propper repo so the above is for 64bit only for 32 bit you'd need to use

    I forgot you need to give the repository a local name, the name can be google

    Code:
    sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64 google
    then do a refresh and ask for chrome
    Code:
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper in google-chrome

    it's sign key, seeing how google is providing these packages opensuse can not guarantee if they're real so you can ignore it (press i).
    That's not a real problem, the real problem I see is that you are downloading google-chrome-unstable
    check your repo as it is supposed to be the stable one
    http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64
    you should get google-chrome-44 not the unstable alpha 46 version?
    did you maybe type unstable when adding the repo.
    again post your repo's
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    as I don't use chrome or any google app maybe someone else can be of more help.
