chrome-logo-smallThis guide explains howto install Google Chrome Web browser on Fedora 20/19/18/17 and CentOS/Red Hat (RHEL) 7. Best way to install and keep up-to-date with Google Chrome browser is use Google’s own YUM repository.

Currently it’s not possible to install Google Chrome on CentOS 6 / Red Hat (RHEL) 6 and Google Says Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Is Obsolete, but don’t worry, I write guide, howto install Chromium Web Browser on CentOS 6 / Red Hat (RHEL) 6.

baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/\$basearch

  1. I cannot install google chrome on my compute nodes. I followed the directions and created a repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d, and this installed fine on my central computer, but it won’t install on my nodes.

    • Hi,

      Following repo exists only CentOS 5, but not CentOS 6:

      [addons]
      name=CentOS-$releasever – Addons
      mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=addons
      #baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/addons/$basearch/
      enabled=1
      gpgcheck=1
      gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5

      So I recommend you to disable this, change:

      enabled=1
      ## to ##
      enabled=0
  3. yeh! Thanx ! works fine…

  4. Stable installed fine and runs nicely on Oracle Linux 6.2 (2.6.39).

    Still got three could not get owner of name org.chromium.Mtpd errors.

    Also the Firefox nemsis “failed to create drawable” error.

    But it works and that’s more than I can say for Firefox after I attempted to add Flash.

    So thanks!

  5. Hi,

    Yesterday, from the official Fedora website, I downloaded and installed 32-bit Fedora 18. All went well.

    This morning I attempted to install Google Chrome browser into this using the instructions on this web page.

    I copied and pasted the instructions for the 32-bit repo given on this webpage into new file google-chrome.repo which now resides in /etc/yum.repos.d/

    When the command “yum install google-chrome-stable” was executed (as root!) everything went well, up to the point shown below.

    Error Summary
    ————-

    Could you please explain what these errors/conflicts are and if there is a solution to this problem.

    Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give with this.

    Best regards,

    Stuart

    • Hello Stuart,

      I had the same error as you, plus some redhad-lsb version error, and I managed to find a work-around to it by manually removing the old conflicting installations:

      yum remove systemtap-devel-2.0-4.fc18.i686
      yum remove systemtap-2.0-4.fc18.i686
      yum remove systemtap-client-2.0-4.fc18.i686
      yum remove systemtap-runtime-2.0-4.fc18.i686

      After this I recommend you run “yum clean all” just be sure, and you should be able to install chrome. (You may need to update lsb as well. Not sure, but if in case that happens just run “yum install/update redhat-lsb”.)

      I hope this helped.

  6. Thanks markoT

    It works for me..

    You could try running: package-cleanup –problems

    • Hi vfhky,

      Could you first post output of following commands:

      uname -a
       
      lsb_release -a
      • thanks for your answer, but i still cannot solve this problem…… how can i get touch with you conveniently?

    • Did you ever discover a resolution to this problem. I’m getting the same thing.

  8. Hi,

    I have problem whe running chorme on fedora 18 ,

    “Please start Google Chrome as a normal user. To run as root, you must specify an alternate –user-data-dir for storage of profile information.”

    Please help me

    • Hi,

      Just start Google Chrome as normal user (not root user).

    • i think you installed the chrome using the account of local user and opent the chrome with root .

  9. One recommendation:

    You should yum automatically select the right architecture. Therefore, change google-chrome.repo to:


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

    What could be causing this?

    • Hi Luis,

      Could you simply try again, maybe some network was really unreachable?

  11. i downloaded the google chroem and got it installed courtesy JR…on fedora 18… but post installation the authentication key is unable to be retrieved…. kindly help me out of this…tried yum install lsb… but it too dint work….urgent….

    • Hi asrar,

      Could you post full error message what you get?

  12. cannot install latest chrome release on RHEL6.4.
    Any suggestions?

  13. Do you have any option to install chrome new version(at least more than 17) in CentOS 5.8. ?
    Details:

    • Hi smilyface,

      No I haven’t unfortunately. It’s sad, but newer Chrome versions supports only distributions with latest packages.

  14. You can change the gpgcheck=0

  15. i get this error

    No package google-chrome-stable available.

    Complete!

    Then i have started to install google chrome.

    yum install google-chrome-stable

  19. I do not have google-chrome.repo file in my Fedora 20 server. Can I just install Chrome browser using YUM install chrome ?

    • Hi amir,

      First two questions, because I’m not totally sure what you want to do…

      1. Are you sure, that you want install any browser on server?

      2. If you really want/need it, why you don’t just add google-chrome.repo and install google-chrome?

  20. thanks, I was able to install google-chrome on the Fedora 20 server. it works!!!

    now back to troubleshooting MySQL on my F20.

    can u upload guides- howto- for MySQL on Fedora? please.

  21. Is anyone else experience a complete chrome stable freeze one Feodra 19?

    Just in the last couple of weeks Chrome has gone from working flawlessly to becoming completely unresponsive. I have to force quit it.

    Thanks

  22. muchas gracias me sirvio :)

  23. while placing repo file it cant be pasted in that folder

    • Hi vamshii,

      You have to do it as root user.

  24. libXss.so.1 installed as libXScrnSaver-1.2.2-6.fc20.i686

    [root@localhost sfw]# rpm -i google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
    warning: google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm: Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 7fac5991: NOKEY
    error: Failed dependencies:
    libXss.so.1()(64bit) is needed by google-chrome-stable-35.0.1916.153-1.x86_64

    [root@localhost sfw]# yum install libXss.so.1
    Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
    Package libXScrnSaver-1.2.2-6.fc20.i686 already installed and latest version
    Nothing to do

    • Hi Jorge,

      You are installing 64-bit Google Chrome on 32-bit Fedora, that’s why all dependencies fail. So just select Google Chrome 32-bit version/repo and try to install it again.
