The Easy Way
Universal Installation Script for RHEL/CentOS 6.X/7.X
All you need to do is run our installer script and you should be good to go.
curl https://intoli.com/install-google-chrome.sh | bash
This will automatically configure and enable the official Google repository, import Google’s signing key, and install the latest
google-chrome-stable executable in your path. If you’re on a RHEL 6.X flavor the it will also automatically find and install all of the unmet dependencies that would normally make the installation fail. You can rerun the script whenever you want to grab the latest version of Google Chrome and, if you’re using RHEL 7.X, then you can update the package using
yum as you would with any other package.
Alternatively, you can add the repository manually if you’re using a 7.X version. If you’re using Amazon Linux AMI then you’re definitely on a 6.X version and need to use the installation script. Otherwise, you can run
and check the output for the version number to confirm that you’re using 7.X. For example, if you’re using RHEL 7.0 then you would expect to see something like:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.0 (Maipo)
You can use the official Google repository if you see a 7.X version there. To add it to your system, simply create a file called
/etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo with the following contents.
[google-chrome] name=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
Then you just need to run
sudo yum install google-chrome-stable
to install the Chrome package. This will add the
google-chrome-stable script in
/usr/bin/. Note that this is the same thing that the installation script does on 7.X flavors, so it’s safe to use the script regardless of which version you’re on.
