I just installed ubuntu on my laptop, everything works fine, but I'd like to use chrome instead of firefox. I downloaded the .deb file from the chrome website, and when I open it, the install buton inside the software center is inactive (I can't click it) and it's telling me dependency is not satisfiable: libcurl3

I did a search for libcurl3 in the Software Center, the three results I'm getting are already installed. Any ideas how to fix this?

I also tried installing chromium-browser, but that's not working out neither. I'm getting Package dependencies not resolved and this details block:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

chromium-browser: Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1) but 1:4.5.2-8ubuntu4 is to be installed
Depends: libxdamage1 (>= 1:1.1) but 1:1.1.3-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
Depends: zlib1g (>= 1: but 1: is to be installed
Depends: libnss3-1d (>= 3.12.3) but it is not going to be installed

More From » installation


Here's how to fix it.

Close Ubuntu Software Center (important if it's open!).

Run the following command in a terminal (To open a terminal, hit Alt-F2 and type in gnome-terminal)

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f

Once that's done, Google Chrome should be finished installing.

As per a comment asking for more info, here's what that command does.

The -f switch in apt-get auto-corrects broken dependencies. The issue you had was a broken dependencies (so Google Chrome needed a package it didn't have).
