Are you facing any similar  issue while installing Google Chrome on ubuntu 11.10 ? No problem ! now I found the solution to fix this issue on Ubuntu 11.10. Follow below steps to fix the chrome installation errors on Ubuntu 11.10 Linux.
  • Step 1: Download Google Chrome from here :
  • Step 2: Open a Terminal window in Ubuntu 11.10 and go to the folder where you downloaded the Google Chrome installation file.

If your Google chrome installation file downloaded to the “downloads”  folder, type same as below in the terminal window.

1 cd Downloads

Now, issue the following two commands to first try installing Chrome and next to fix the dependencies :

sudo dpkg -i package-name
sudo apt-get -f install

Replace “package-name” with the name of the downloaded file… in my case I downloaded the 32bit version of Google Chrome for debian, For example  “google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb”

sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

You are done ! Go to the menu and launch Google Chrome! I think Ubuntu team need to look on this issue other wise they will lose some Google Fans.
