Google Chrome (Open Source Web Browser)

Here's how to install Google Chrome on Slackware.

First, go to the Google Chrome site:

Click the download button, and select either:

    < >  32 bit .deb (for Debian/Ubuntu)
    < >  64 bit .deb (for Debian/Ubuntu)

Read and accept the license terms, and download the .deb package.

Then, with the google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb or 
google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb package in the same directory
as the google-chrome.SlackBuild script, run the script as root to
convert the .deb to a Slackware .txz:


This will produce a Slackware compatible .txz package.  The exact
version number in the package filename will depend on the version
of Google Chrome found in the .deb package, but it will be something
like:  google-chrome-10.0.648.151-x86_64-1.txz

You'll find the output package in the /tmp directory.

Then, install the package (again as root):

cd /tmp
upgradepkg --install-new google-chrome-10.0.648.151-x86_64-1.txz

Enjoy!  :-)
