O.K,

So Lite Software thinks it's installed, but it seems it's not.
I think it needs a comment from somebody in the know...

Out of interest, How does it show in Synaptic, search for: google-chrome-stable

At this point, it may behoove you to just install Chrome via their website.  Download and run the 64-bit *.deb file.  I think it can be found here:  https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html#

Synaptic shows Chromium but not Chrome.

I work nights so I'm off to bed.  Thanks for your help.  Maybe someone else will check in.

Did that.  Seems like it works.  Do you think I should run those original lines of code again?

Monkeyman,
If your updates don't run for some reason, then copy and paste the two aforementioned 64bit lines of code into a terminal as a workaround.  It's been over a week since Google made their change.  It doesn't seem like they're trying to make this correction on their own.  It's disappointing because I've helped several people move over to Linux and I just don't see them investigating this issue to fix it on their own like you are...and it's not their fault or yours.

newtusmaximus,
Chromium should be fine in 32-bit.  I cannot speak to back doors, but it is still supported for Linux unlike 32-bit Google Chrome for Linux.

Source - http://www.webupd8.org/2016/03/fix-failed-to-fetch-google-chrome_3.html

We've removed Chrome from the Lite Software 32bit version.

For 32bit Google Chrome:

Open a terminal and do each of these commands one at a time:

Code: [Select]
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
sudo apt-get remove google-chrome-stable

Install Chromium via Lite Software. Do not keep Chrome installed on 32bit Linux Lite. You are placing your system at risk by taking this chance.

For 64bit Google Chrome:

Open a terminal and do each of these commands one at a time:

Code: [Select]
sudo sed -i -e 's/deb http/deb [arch=amd64] http/' "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list"
sudo sed -i -e 's/deb http/deb [arch=amd64] http/' "/opt/google/chrome/cron/google-chrome"

Jerry, thanks.. got this error on my  ultrabook and solved w/ your help.  ;D ;D

Noticed a lot of people coming into the Forums and posting new threads, despite the amount of useful existing threads. Hopefully this Header and Footer on every page will cut down on the number of new posts :)

Great idea! :)

Is it possible to have it in red and blinking?
Or a red banner running above with "Attention!"

Not kidding considering that new posts still show up...

Yep, therefore I asked for the possibility to make it sticking out.

Have you guys considered to release two new ISOs to at least avoid the hassle with/ posts from new installations from these ISOs?

I have considered releasing updated isos, but I'm not going to do that. LL 3.0 is just around the corner.
