Hi,

Here is how we can install google chrome (chromium) web browser in Ubuntu. It is an open-source browser project that is safer, faster, and more stable.

1) First you need to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file

manohar@manohar-desktop:~$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

2) Add one of the following

a) For ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) Users add the following two lines

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu karmic main

deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu karmic main

b) For ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) Users add the following two lines

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

c) For ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) Users add the following two lines

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

3) Save and exit the file

4) Now add the GPG key using the following command

manohar@manohar-desktop:~$ sudo apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5

5) Update the source list using the following command

6) Install chromium using the following command

manohar@manohar-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Hi

Quick tip for those having trouble with their splash screens in lucid.

To change the default splash screen:

sudo update-alternatives –config default.plymouth
sudo update-initramfs -u

To fix the delayed loading of the splash:

sudo -s
echo FRAMEBUFFER=y >>/etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
update-initramfs -u

Please try it at your own risk.
