[Solved] Unable to install Google Chrome on ChaletOS 16.04

Post by S_aanntosh on Fri May 27, 2016 3:31 am

Hello Folks,

I tried installing Google Chrome via both package manager and via command line but in vain.

In package manager, when I click on Install button, there's no progress on the installation and I don't see any error message.

When I try to install Chrome using command line option, I get following error.

S_aanntosh@home:~$ cd Downloads/

S_aanntosh@home:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

(Reading database ... 228830 files and directories currently installed.)

Preparing to unpack google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb ...

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of google-chrome-stable:

 Package libappindicator1 is not installed.

dpkg: error processing package google-chrome-stable (--install):

How do I fix this issue and install Chrome?

Cheers

A dependency is a program that must be installed for another program to operate or install.

So you will need to install libappindicator1.

Try to run this in terminal: "sudo apt-get install libappindicator1"

If that bonks then search it online.

Hope this helps! Very Happy
