Installing Chrome on LMDE 2

To install Chrome on LMDE 2 (which is required if you want to watch Netflix on Linux):

  1. Browse to: https://www.google.co.in/chrome/browser/desktop/index.html
  2. Click Download Chrome
  3. Click Accept and Install
  4. In the Opening google-chrom-stable_current_amd64.deb dialog, click OK (to Open with GDebi Installer)
  5. When the download completes, the Package Installer will pop up. Click Install Package
  6. Provide your password when prompted

Caveat Emptor

When I tried to follow this suggested installation process, the first step:

wget -q -O – https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add –

fails with the following message:

gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

Update

Trying the recommended procedure on a new computer, I got the public key downloaded and added, but then apt-get update failed with:

W: Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/dists/stable/Release  Unable to find expected entry ‘non-free/binary-amd64/Packages’ in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
