Update: Using Ubuntu Lucid Lynx? Here is corresponding article for you:
Install Google Chrome (Chromium) on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.

One of the easiest way to try Chromium browser in Ubuntu Linux (Google Chrome browser for Unix/Linux operating system is named as Chromium) is to use daily binary builds at https://launchpad.net/chromium-project. Today Ubuntu is the most popular Linux disributions for desktops so there are daily builds available for the following Ubuntu versions: hardy, intrepid, jaunty, karmic.

First let your Ubuntu know where it should find chromium-browser deb package:

vi /etc/apt/sources.list

add the following lines:

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

Replace jaunty with hardy, intrepid or karmic depending which version you run at your computer. If you feel this information is not sufficient for you, follow this link to get Ubuntu official information on this matter or follow Launchpad help.

The next step is to install Chromium browser:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
or
sudo aptitude install chromium-browser

Once you press enter Ubuntu will download around 18 MB of data from launchpad’s server and will install Chromium with gnome menu entries and shortcuts. Now you can go to System menu –> Internet –> Chromium Web Browser in order to launch Google browser.

Ubuntu Chromium (google chrome for linux)

Ubuntu Chromium Google browser (Google Chrome Ubuntu)

As you might know there is still no official release of chromium/chrome available for Linux, so these daily builds from launchpad are for testing/observations purposes only. For example, there is no flash plugin available so you will be able to see html pages like this one and no swf/flash content. Anyway thanks to Google for great browser which has all chances to become “browser number one” for Linux or even for the rest of operating system such as Windows or Mac. Who knows? :)

You might also find this page using Google and the following keywords: Ubuntu Chrome, Google Chrome Ubuntu, Chrome for Ubuntu and others.

    I have to tell ya, Withe way Firefox runs on Jaunty, I can't see a reason to install chromium. Firefox runs like it was made for jaunty. quick and crisp. Chromium is a nice browser, I would run epiphany on a linux box before chromium.

    i believe you need these sources rather than the awn ones


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

    I think you have the wrong links up there--no chromium in that PPA.

  6. June 23, 2009  12:32 pm by Thijs Reply

    The correct lines to add to your sources.list are:

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

    Aaron, could you clarify please? Cannot see any broken link :(

  8. June 24, 2009  12:22 am by Greg Reply

    Aaron is correct - the PPA doesn't have chromium. Looks like it's been moved to:

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

    Hope this helps!

    If you go look inside the repo (go to http://ppa.launchpad.net/awn-testing/ubuntu) there's no chromium-browser anything. Adding that repo to sources.list and updating doesn't give a chromium-browser package. It doesn't appear to be in the repo at all.

  10. June 24, 2009  1:27 am by Aaron C. de Bruyn Reply

    Doing some more digging, I found chromium-browser in a different PPA.

    Did you mean to post these?

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

  11. June 24, 2009  2:55 pm by artiomix Reply

    Oh, you're right, Aaron, here the proper source:

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

    Thank you!

    One nice feature I noticed was finally implemented in latest chromium dev was tab crash recovery.

    @Daniel, You need two dashes before recv-keys and keyserver per your link, that is:

    [code]sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 4E5E17B5[/code]

    You can use Ubuntu-tweak to add chromium nice and easy.

    Since Chrome(ium) Version 3 is out there for Linux, I've kicked this fat, bloated Firefox. It starts in milliseconds, is solid and supports everything (b.t.w.: even flash).

    good call - that did the trick!

    I prefer to install Chrome from .deb file. It's more stable and updated.

    Thanks.

    Haha this kid says he discovered some Runescape hacks... do you think he's for real? Is that even possible since RS is a server side game?
