Question Google Chrome repository


Hi everybody!
Code:
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable main
Is it enough just to add it to "/etc/apt/sources.list" and apt-get update to install and be able to upgrade Google Chrome in Ubuntu? And no need to do anything else.

Make sure you add the key
Code:
wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
apt-get update
BTW the "stable" repo has the stable version of Chrome, if you want the dev build change it to testing. You can have both stable and testing in your sources.list.

# Google Stable http://www.google.com/linuxrepositories/apt.html
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable non-free main

# Google testing repository http://www.google.com/linuxrepositories/testrepo.html
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ testing non-free

The testing repo also has Picasa and Google-Desktop.

I want stable version.

So all I need to do is:
1. wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | apt-key add -
2. apt-get update
3. Add "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable non-free main" to sources.list
4. apt-get update
5. install Chrome from repos?

I did and after apt-get update I get

Code:
Reading package lists... Done
W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/dl.google.com_linux_deb_dists_stable_main_binary-i386_Packages)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

If you have ever installed Chrome by downloading it from the web it adds a sources.list line automatically, just like Opera does. Check your sources.list it was probably already there.

I searched "dl.google.com" line. And it's the only one in sources.list.

Google chrome source repos are not available

Google chrome source repos are not available I dont know why.

I use firefox in daily work use sometimes chromium testing. But I wanted to install Google chrome now and as I see by result of $apt-get update repos are disappeared.

This is the error I get:
Code:
W: Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/dists/testing/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found [IP: 74.125.232.198 80]
Craig also the links that you gave:
# Google Stable http://www.google.com/linuxrepositories/apt.html
# Google testing repository http://www.google.com/linuxrepositories/testrepo.html

does not work anymore.

Also craigevil I used some of sources.list lines from your big list but errors appear also for debian-multimedia:

Code:
[W: Failed to fetch http://www.debian-multimedia.org/dis...amd64/Packages  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://www.debian-multimedia.org/dis...amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
