7) Install Google Chrome Browser

Web browser is important one for computer, we can’t do anything without web browser such as browsing, checking mails, accessing bank account, etc.,. Create google-chrome.repo repo file under /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo and add repository content.

#  Create google-chrome.repo file  #
[email protected] [~]$ sudo touch /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo

# Past google chrome repo content #
[email protected] [~]$ sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo
[google-chrome]

baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

  1. great article very in depth but not to geeky. would like see review of Mint currently running 17.0

  2. What a marvelous community contribution. Thank you very much. This has been most helpful and an excellent way to start my adventure in the world of Linux!

  3. Hi Getting an error with the adobe flash area

    sudo rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

  4. Please remove Fedy and its kin, Fedy is malware/spyware and it also overwirites core fedora files
    Please Stop recommending it

      1. @Unixer,
        Once again thank you so much for pin pointing the issue which will help future user to get complete and clean article. Yes, Its deprecated and i have modified the article according that.

  5. Would be nice if Skype actually worked.
    Followed the instructions, get Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    This on a Fedora 23 system, fully updated

  6. Dropbox is a good service for sync. Arent you concerned about all the cloud hacks these days? Have you tried Binfer? Here’s about direct file sharing

  7. I started using Redhat years ago, RH5 i think. didn’t know anything about computers or linux. lost track of Redhat after Cedora Core started using the unity desktop. hated that. went a few years using Mint, Ubuntu, and they are all great os’s, but i decided to give Fedora a try again, with 23. installed it, not crazy about the workstation version, found spins, and here i am on 23MATE-compiz d.e. a bit of a challenge getting it to install smoothly into ubuntu bootloader. however i now have 6 os’s running out of ubuntu bootloader, and this is probably going to be my favorite. Fedora rocks again, thanks to the Spins, and your handy little treatment of it. Great Fedora site, thanks much for all your efforts.

    1. @Pat,
      Nice to hear your words. Fedora also good distro rpm based system. I’m using Fedora more than 3 years, still loving to play most of the time with Fedora…) Keep rocking, hands of to Open-Source…)
