Install Google Chrome in Linux

In this tutorial we will show you how we have practically installed Google Chrome 41 browser in one of our CentOS 7.0 server using Google’s own repository with Yum tool and a third party script from Richard Lloyd, which installs latest chrome version on RHEL/CentOS and Fedora versions.

By using Google’s official repository you will keep your Chrome browser up-to-date. However, it should also work on RHEL 7.0/6.x, CentOS 7.0/6.x and Fedora 21-15 versions as well.

Step 1: Enable Google YUM repository

Create a file called /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo and add the following lines of code to it.

[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

Step 2: Installing Chrome Web Browser

First, check whether the latest version available from the Google’s own repository using following yum command.

# yum info google-chrome-stable
Yum Check Google Chrome

Check Google Chrome Info

Do you see the highlighted output in the above image, that clearly telling that the latest version of chrome is available from repository. So, let’s install it using yum command as shown below, which will automatically install all needed dependencies.

# yum install google-chrome-stable

Installing Google Chrome

Update : Sadly, the Google Chrome browser no longer supports the most famous commercial distribution RHEL 6.x and its free clones such as CentOS and Scientific Linux.

Yes, they’ve discontinued support for RHEL 6.X version as of Google Chrome and on other side, latest Firefox and Opera browsers run successfully on the same platforms.

Luckily, there is a script developed by Richard Lloyd, that automatically download and install latest Google Chrome browser by picking libraries from a more recent released distro and put those libraries in (/opt/google/chrome/lib) directory and then you can able to run Google Chrome on RHEL/CentOS 6.x versions.

# wget http://chrome.richardlloyd.org.uk/install_chrome.sh
# chmod u+x install_chrome.sh
# ./install_chrome.sh
