Linux Mint (and any Debian derivatives) does not come with Google Chrome. You can’t install it even from Software Manager. In this blog, I will show you how to install it from terminal.
Make sure you have vim installed on your machine. (
sudo apt install vim)
Next create a new file under the directory.
sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chrome.list
Paste the following source in the file.
deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
Add the key.
wget -q -O - https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt update
Install Google Chrome.
sudo apt install google-chrome-stable
Start Google Chrome
I’m not sure how you can add Google Chrome in the favorite menu yet. I will update this article when I find out.
Edit: It showed up in the menu the next day, so I am guessing it takes some time for the DE to cache the newly installed applications.
