    Default Chrome: Installation aborted by user

    Hi,
    (new user here )
    When I try to install Chrome after I insert pasword, it starts to download packages and then I get: Installation aborted by user.

    So I try with zypper and this is it: (I did rename the chrome file so it is not so long, it was downloaded from google page)

    Code:
    linux-yh8p:/home/bojan # zypper install chrome.rpm

    Well, as the message says: the package's signature cannot be verified because the key is not available.
    Choose 'i' for ignore to install it anyway.

    Is this a bug at Google's or OpenSuse's end?

    Depends on how you look at it.

    The main problem is that the package is signed with an unknown key. If you added Google's repo and installed it from there, you should get the key, otherwise you'd have to install it manually.

    openSUSE's software stack (zypper) became more strict regarding this in the last months. This is not really a bug though, I'd say...

    Unfortunately, PackageKit cannot cope with such complications (it's not designed for openSUSE in particular, it's intended to be a general tool for all distributions), and just aborts instead of asking the user whether he wants to continue (and ignoring a possible security problem) or abort, like zypper does.

    You can obtain the key from Google by going to https://www.google.com/linuxrepositories/ The page has instructions for installing the key. Follow them and then try installing Chrome again. It worked for me.
