This is a guide to help you install Google Chrome on Ubuntu Hardy Heron, there are other ways, but this is the one that works for me, hope it will help you.
Ready to give it a shoot?
Step 1 - Update WINE In order for the Chrome installation on Ubuntu to be successful you have to update your WINE version to 1.1.4. Type (or copy) this in to your command line - wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list sudo apt-get update
Step 2 – Get all necessary software
Winetricks is a script that will allow you to get all the necessary software you need for this installation. The last command below will install Firefox into WINE, this is needed for the third step.
Get Linux (Mint 7 is AWESOME!). Easy to use (anyone whom I have asked say it is easier than Vista/WinBlows 7). Another common distro people use to switch from the virus (Wind0ze) to freedom (Linux, duh) is Ubuntu. I recommend Intrepid (Ubuntu 8), as 9 is unstable (still considered beta).
A lot of peoples' main concern is availability/compatibility of/with programs. There are programs available for everything I need, and I use a LOT (Office, terminal emulators, photo/movie players/adjustment programs, etc.), and they are FREE (so are cracked Wind0z3 progs, but, well...you know...), and actually have GREAT support!
As far as your problem goes---it should offer to add an exception, or to install anyway. Seems in your case it did not, so maybe Program Control needs to be shut off so that everything can be run as roo...I mean administrator...WHEW! That was close!
You need to add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list file or
you need to make sure you have enabled Universe and multiverse
repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list file
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Make sure you have the following two lines save and exit your file
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy universe multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy universe multiverse
Now you need to run the following command to update the source list
sudo apt-get update
Install mplayer using the following command
sudo apt-get install mplayer
if you want to open mplayer just type
You can Open from Applications—>Sound&Video—> Mplayer Movie Player Install libdvdcss2 and w32 video codecs in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)
Support for WMV, RealMedia and other formats has been bundled into
the w32codecs package. This package is not available from the Ubuntu
repositories due to licensing and legal restrictions.
For Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) Users run the following command
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
Then, add the GPG Key using the following commands
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring
sudo apt-get update For i386 Users install Codecs using the following command
sudo apt-get install w32codecs libdvdcss2 For amd64 Users install Codecs using the following command
sudo apt-get install w64codecs libdvdcss2
Using above download locations you can install most of the mutimedia codecs for ubuntu. Mplayer Plugin for Firefox
If you want to install Mplayer with plug-in for Mozilla Firefox run the following command
sudo apt-get install mozilla-mplayer
I have never heard of this til now. It might be a stuck package? You can try booting into recovery mode by hitting the esc key at boot time and selecting the top line that ends in "recovery mode" then af the next menu select "fix broken packages". Did you have Firefox 2 and 3 installed or just one of them? Is Firefox running in gnome system monitor after you start it and maybe just not showing the window? The only other thing I can think of to try would be to make a new user and log into that user and try it.
