By Viktor Ustijanoski | 09 November 2009



Google Chromium is Linux version of Google Chrome. It’s fast, secure and very simple to install and use. This Google browser is native Linux app and is build from scratch not using wine like Google Picasa for Linux. For installing we will use PPA launchpad repositories from Google Chrome development team.


1. Open System/Administration/Software Sources, click on Other Software tab and add repositories line by line:

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

2. Next, open terminal and add the GPG key (Ctrl+Shift+V – paste in terminal)

sudo apt-key adv –recv-keys –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5

3. Then, update the source list and install Google Chromium with next terminal line:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

After installing, you can found Google Chromium at Applications/Internet menu.
