I can't install Google Chrome browser. I wonder why and how to fix it. Here is the log I got from my terminal when installing Google Chrome.

You probably need to enable the "universe" repository.





Once you enable it, update your system and you should now be able to install google-chrome-stable.



sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libgconf2-4 libnss3-1d libxss1
