Cannot install Chrome on Ubuntu 16.04
Google Chrome requires some missing dependencies as can be seen when trying to install from the terminal using
dpkg -i. Prior to installing Chrome, run:
sudo apt-get install libindicator7 libappindicator1
After that, Chrome installation works fine.
Its very simple to install google chrome on ubuntu . Type the following commands in the terminal
Step 1 : Download the latest Google Chrome .deb package with wget:
Step 2 : Install the Google Chrome .deb package

Hope this helps!

Doenloaded the .deb package of Chrome from Google's site. The installation doesn't work when trying to install from the GUI. What's up with that?
GillesC over 5 yearsJust had the issue myself on a fresh ubuntu built (17). The following dependencies were also needed
libgconf-2-4- best call is to install from cmd line so one can see error if any. Pretty poor UX on Ubuntu part for not showing errors in the GUI.
