Cannot install Google Chrome browser

Hi peeps, i am running FC12 64bit . When i tried to install Chrome browser it shows this error.

rpm -ivh google-chrome-beta_current_x86_64.rpm
warning: google-chrome-beta_current_x86_64.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 7fac5991
error: Failed dependencies:
lsb >= 3.2 is needed by google-chrome-beta-4.0.249.30-33928.x86_64


Doubleclick from Dolphine shows:

Failed to install file - Kpackagekit
An unknown error happened.

What happened and what should I do?

Hrrm, why would it need package kit?

You can try


yum localinstall --nogpgcheck google-chrome- <at this point, if you hit the tab key, shell completion should finish the name of the rpm.

Glad it worked, and thanks for coming back and letting us know that it did. There's a reasonable chance that that will help someone else in the future.

It takes awhile to learn each distribution's idiosyncrasies

You're connected to the Internet when you do this? It should have pulled in the packages.

yum search lsb

It will probably be something like redhat-lsb, but I'm not sure of the name in Fedora

Then, install the package for lsb.

For nss, use

yum provides */libnss3.so

It will take awhile, but it should give you the package or packages that provide that library.

Then install that package.

I got the same message, did a yum search lsb, and it told me there was a package: redhat-lsb-3.2-6.fc11.i586 available which I installed, and then the google-chrome install went fine. I think the redhat-lsb package pulled in a few dependencies, also...

That being said, I'm not sure I'm going to use this browser much for a couple of reasons: no NoScript extension and the one I dislike the most is that there's no option to have it ask before downloading updates. You're basically forced to let it update the browser and extensions. And it sets up it's own repo, which wasn't disclosed in any of the download info I saw. And on my 256mb laptop, I'm not seeing much if any speed difference over Firefox 3.5. Of course, ymmv.

Flash does not work in my google chrome. Chrome cannot find libflashplayer.so.
I did create a folder in /opt/google/chrome/plugins/ and made a link for the libflashplayer.so file. Still doesnt work

Create a directory, /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins if you don't have it already--if using 64 bit Chrome, then /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins

It looks for flash in there. <shrug>.

Thank you very much! This worked for me.

One oddity is that if I start Chrome through the application menu it does not open - the system thinks about it a few second then nothing happens. When I tried starting Chrome in a terminal to see an error message it worked fine. I've gone back and forth a few times to test it and each time the menu starting fails and the terminal starting works. I assume the menu has something messed up in the path it's using but that is not something I have messed with before so I'll have to learn how to chase that down and fix it. Just wanted to mention it in case someone else is only trying the menu and might run run into the same thing.

It's possible that the menu has the command wrong--that is, when installed, maybe it looks for something like chrome rather than google-chrome. However, I always use keyboard shortcuts in fluxbox, so can't be much help there I fear. Perhaps if you right click the item in the menu, it'll show what command is actually called.

Do you have firefox installed? That's usually where it looks. The only other thing I can think of is to start it from command line with

google-chrome --enableplugins

and see if that helps.
