How to easy install Google Chromium alpha on Ubuntu

Don't want to miss a single bit? Subscribe to our RSS Feed!

Google recently released alpha version of Chromium – Linux version of Google Chrome. The new Google browser is native Linux app and is build from scratch and at this development stage some important Windows features aren't working in Linux version, like the tab and bookmarks bars and options menu, but nearly everything else is running fast and smooth. We expect everything to work in early beta and final releases.

Becouse is in alpha stage is still hard to install for testing, so simplifying the install process will bring more valuable user feedback and bug report. Ubuntu users can simply install it and test it with adding PPA launchpad repositories from Google Chrome development team.

1. Open System/Administration/Software Sources and add repositories line by line by your Ubuntu version:

For Ubuntu 9.04
deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main

For Ubuntu 8.10
deb intrepid main
deb-src intrepid main

For Ubuntu 8.04
deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main

2. Next, open your terminal and enter:

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

3. After the package has finished installing, just type chromium-browser [enter] to start.
