Install Google Chrome on Linux using Wine [hack]

chrome on linux

Google Chrome, the new browser from Google, is giving the talk. Everyone wants to have it, even Linux users. Although there is still no version for Linux, the site staff My Science is Better found a way to run it through Wine, a platform within Linux that allows you to run applications from the Windows environment.

No more blah blah blah and here we go:

1. Install Wine (follow the instructions at http://www.winehq.org/site/download-deb)

2. Make sure you install version 1.1.3 or check your version using the commandwine –version

3. Download winetricks and instalewget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetrickssudo cp winetricks / usr / sbin

4. Install some dependencies for Chrome (Flash is optional) winetricks riched20 riched30 flash

4.1 Install new fonts (optional) winetricks allfonts

5. Download the Chromewget installer http://gpdl.google.com/chrome/install/149.27/chrome_installer.exe

6. Install Chromewine chrome_installer.exe

7. Once the installation is complete, you will not be able to use Chrome yet. Close the application and open the Chrome.desktop icon created on your desktop with your favorite editor. Then, add “–new-http –in-process-plugins”, without the “quotes” at the end of this line:

Exec = env WINEPREFIX = “/ home / mimir / .wine” wine “C: windows profiles googlediscovery Local Settings Application Data Google Chrome Application chrome.exe”

It will look like this: Exec = env WINEPREFIX = “/ home / mimir / .wine” wine “C: windows profiles googlediscovery Local Settings Application Data Google Chrome Application chrome.exe” –new-http – -in-process-plugins

Then save the file. Now just open and run for the hug! =)
