Thread: Trouble dowloading Google Chrome

  1. #1

    Default Trouble dowloading Google Chrome

    So I've been trying to download and install google chrome for a while, and when I finally did, it doesn't open when I click on it. All it does, is the icon bounces near my mouse for a while, then disappears. When I try to open it in terminal by typing
    Code:
    google-chrome
    , it gives me this error:

    Code:
    [1:1:1010/153527:ERROR:image_metadata_extractor.cc(111)] Couldn't load libexif.
    [1814:1814:1010/153528:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(217)] GTK theme error: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "oxygen-gtk",
    [1814:1814:1010/153528:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(217)] GTK theme error: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "oxygen-gtk",
    libGL error: Couldn't dlopen libudev.so.1 or libudev.so.0, driver detection may be broken.
    libGL error: Couldn't dlopen libudev.so.1 or libudev.so.0, driver detection may be broken.
    Aborted
    I've seen many forums and people with similar problems, but their solutions don't seem to work for me, any help?

    if you downloaded the rpm try installing it with zypper
    Code:
    zypper in <path_to_chrome_rpm>
    from your errors it seams you're missing a few dependencies zypper should fix that.

    It seems that you copied that command litteraly. Of course you have to change the <path_to_chrome_rpm> with the actual value where you stored the RPM. We can obviously not know where you downloaded it to. And zypper can guess neither.

    PS
    Please do not say:
    when I typed in:
    I got
    But copy/paste from your terminal the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt in one sweep between the CODE tags. Then we can all see immediatly what you did and what you got (and a few things more). Then a lot of the small talk can be left out.

    Ahh, yes I see. As you can tell, I'm not very experienced with this. Anyway how can I find where I downloaded it to? Do I open YaST?

    How can we know? You downloaded it (as you told us in your first post above). Maybe on ~/Downloads? Maybe elsewhere? When you do not know, how can we?

    Could you perhaps lead me through re-downloading it, so that you know exactly what has been done? Also, I have a 64 bit.

    This is a simple copy/paste installation
    add google's Chrome repo and then install chrome stable
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64 google-chrome
    sudo zypper in google-chrome-stable
    you might get a warning about a key not being found, you can ignore that or prior to doing the above download and install google's pgp key (it's not really needed)
    Code:
    sudo rpm --import https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
    after adding chrome's repo you should get updates via apper and you will be able to install/remove chrome from yast,.

    ps. IMO chromium is a better choice but then again I don't use chrome or chromium

    Hi
    The url is wrong, should be dl.google.com not 'do'
