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

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.

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#

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

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.

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

Still won't install although: Menu>System>Lite Software shows it installed.  Menu>Internet doesn't show it.

EDIT:  I get the same error message when I try to uninstall Chrome and it continues to show that it's installed.

Hi,

It maybe just a sequence thing, or maybe Lite Software now needs an update because of Google fix Jerry noted.??

Try this:
Open a terminal, and run the initial commands again:
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"


Then do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update

Do you see any errors..??, If YES, post here, otherwise: Menu > Favourites > Install Updates

Do you see any errors..??, If YES, post here, otherwise: Menu > System > Lite Software

Then try to install Chrome again, does it now install.??

...reinstall Chrome via Lite Software.

When I try to install Chrome via Lite Software, I get this error: "Error  Unable to locate package google-chrome-stable".  I can run updates just fine.  What am I missing?

Monkeyman,

You didn't need to uninstall your 64-bit version of Chrome.  Instead you could have copied and pasted the two lines associated with the 64-bit Chrome fix, and your updates would have continued.

To get back to a world with Amazon working in a browser, reinstall Chrome via Lite Software.  If you run into the same problem with updates not running afterwards, then copy and paste those two lines.

This is not a Linux Lite issue.  It's a Google issue that is affecting Debian/Ubuntu based Linux distributions.  And it's been going on for a week.

I guess I misunderstood.  I c/p'ed both of those lines of code then uninstalled Chrome.  I'll either reinstall Chrome or see what the the code below does.  Thanks.

New Chrome out today, looking at some of the code, it looks like they fixed the repo issue eg.

Code: [Select]
# sources.list setting for google-chrome updates.
REPOCONFIG="deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main"
REPOCONFIGREGEX="deb (\[arch=[^]]*\bamd64\b[^]]*\][[:space:]]*)?https?://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main"

If I c/p that code, will it reinstall Chrome or do I need to install Chrome THEN run that code?  Or reinstall Chrome and disregard that code?
