How to Add Google Chrome Repository in Deepin Linux

Linuxslaves.com - In my opinion, Deepin is one of the most polished and very easy to use Linux distro. After digging it out, I noticed that Deepin doesn't provide latest version of Google Chrome / Google Earth.

Well, you can grab the Chome.deb package from its official website and install it manually.

But it won't add Google repository to your system.

So you need to add the repository manually to make sure you run and gets the latest stable version of Google software in Deepin Linux.

cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

sudo nano google.list

Step 3 - Add this line :

Step 4 - Once added, press Ctrl+O to write out and Enter to save the changes. Now you can close the editor by pressing Ctrl+X.
