Installing Google Chrome on Ubuntu 11.10

When attempting to install Google Chrome on Oneiric, you may encounter an error such as the following in the Ubuntu Software Centre:

Internal Error The file “google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb” could not be opened.

Though depending on which installer you’re using, the filename may be different of course. To work around this you can install it manually by running the following commands:

sudo apt-get install libxss1 libcurl3
sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb

Again, adjust the filename depending on the installer you have.
